Verkdetaljer

The City of Ember av Jeanne DuPrau

  1. 150
    Den utvalde av Lois Lowry (FFortuna)
    FFortuna: The Giver is much darker, but these are similar in premise.
  2. 81
    Hungerspelen av Suzanne Collins (Bitter_Grace)
  3. 50
    The People of Sparks av Jeanne DuPrau (moongrove2)
    moongrove2: It is the sequal
  4. 40
    Ful av Scott Westerfeld (Bitter_Grace, goodiegoodie)
  5. 20
    Running Out of Time av Margaret Peterson Haddix (Runa, HollyMS)
  6. 21
    Z for Zachariah av Robert C. O'Brien (atimco)
    atimco: Z for Zachariah treats the same basic theme — the destruction of earth and what the characters must do to survive — but O'Brien's book is much more sophisticated. It's probably not the greatest for young readers, but an adult will find much to enjoy here.
  7. 00
    The Adoration of Jenna Fox av Mary E. Pearson (missmaddie)
  8. 00
    The Danger Quotient av Annabel Johnson (SunnySD)
  9. 00

    The Inventor's Secret av Andrea Cremer (Othemts)
  11. 00
    Redwall. Cluny Gisslaren av Brian Jacques (FFortuna)
    FFortuna: Mostly dissimilar, but the Redwall books deal with the same kinds of puzzles if that's the draw.

    The House of Power av Patrick Carman (Yehudit)
  13. 00
    The Last Dragonslayer av Jasper Fforde (Othemts)

I picked this up in order to see if it would be a good read for the boys. It was an intriguing book and luckily very appropriate for the boys. I can't wait to read the next few in the series. ( )

I enjoyed the book but wanted there to be more to it - more story, more character development, just more. ( )
  ColourfulThreads | Feb 18, 2021 |
This book was really good. I saw the movie of it too, and it was really good too! ( )

Great for the age range, a little older and Wool has similar themes for an older reader. Fine as a stand-alone novel. ( )

YA, middle-grade fantasy

The City of Ember is surrounded by darkness. For 12 hours a day the darkness is pushed back from the city by lights, kept shining by a generator installed by the Builders. But supplies, including light bulbs, are beginning to run out. The city might soon be engulfed by total darkness.

Lina, and her friend Doon, have just come of age and have been assigned jobs. As they go about their daily routine, they begin to notice that things are going wrong. People are hoarding and stealing supplies. Power outages are becoming longer and more commonplace. City officials are corrupt. Then Lina finds a box containing a message that might be the key to saving the populace of Ember. They just have to figure out how to decipher it and get an entire city to listen to them....

City of Ember is book 1 of a series for middle-grade children. It was recommended to me by a 5th grader, and I'm glad she did! I have yet to come across a child who read this series and didn't love it. I have read some reviews that called the plot too simplistic and faulted DuPrau's writing. Adult readers must keep in mind that this book is NOT adult fiction. It is written for young readers. DuPrau's story telling keeps the plot age appropriate, while depicting the city's dire predicament. She portrays the start of a slow destruction of society and safety without going too far. Readers who don't want to read a story that is appropriate to middle-grade children should probably stick to adult fiction. The intended audience for YA fiction is children, not adults.

My one complaint -- City of Ember ends on an extreme cliffhanger. And, as I'm writing this, I don't have book 2 yet!!! :) Great excuse to go to the bookstore!

There is a movie version as well. I have not seen it yet, but have read good reviews. I will request it from Netflix and add to this review once I've seen it. I hope it follows the book closely and doesn't make any sweeping changes. The story is wonderful as it is.

I look forward to reading book 2. I'm headed to the bookshop tonight for an author signing event (Kevin Hearne - Iron Druid Series!)...so I'm definitely picking up The People of Sparks while I'm there!

My Rating: 8/10

While a book like ''Faerie Wars'' diverts young readers from their daily lives, one like ''The City of Ember'' encourages them to tackle the most ambitious tasks. Hard work can save the day, it promises. It's an old-fashioned lesson that is somehow easier to swallow when delivered in a futuristic setting.

In the city of Ember, the sky was always dark. The only light came from great floodlamps mounted on the buildings and at the top of poles in the middle of the larger squares.
