Verksinformation

The City of Ember av Jeanne DuPrau (Author)

  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
    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.

It's a world with no sun, lit only by electricity. But the generator is dying and the citizens of Ember don't know what to do. 12-year-old Lina discovers an ancient document that may be the secret to surviving Ember's decay, but time is running out. This book's a page turner, a mystery, and a thought-provoker. ( )

I'm tempted to attribute the dumbed down world building, logic flaws, and flat characters to the fact that this is written as children's literature, but I've read far too many excellent stories in that category to accept that children don't need or deserve better. Much of the ignorance of the people of Ember is explained at the end - that the adults who were chosen to populate that world were under strict orders to not pass on knowledge of the world before, but that just seems like a cop-out to me. Children ask questions, and their caregivers didn't have anyone preventing them from answering after they were dropped off in Ember. There was no satisfactory explanation for why the Builders demanded that their history be erased. In fact, it's nonsensical, if they expected that their descendants would need to emerge from Ember and re-integrate into the outside world some 200 years later. This is just one of the many logical flaws that kept me disengaged from the book. The characters and their relationships with one another had no depth. Lina feels very little grief for her grandmother, and forgets her death almost immediately. She seems to feel very little for her sister except concern when the child wanders off and is lost. When she refuses to leave Ember without her sister later, it seems borne of a sense of responsibility rather than any actual connection. She might as well have been refusing to leave without her only pair of shoes. I finished the story mostly because it was on audio and kept me company while doing some chores around the house, but if I had been actually reading the book, I probably would have put it down halfway through and not picked it up again.

What a unique, fun story! Admittedly, I haven’t read that many dystopian or sci-fi books, so I could be wrong about my assessment of the book, but it felt like one of the most unique settings I’ve ever found myself in inside a book. DuPrau did an amazing job creating this story world, and I had a lot of fun exploring it through the eyes of the characters. The characters themselves were also dynamic, a little foolish at times, and courageous—everything you could want in good characters, really.

I was engrossed in the story from nearly the first page, and I had a hard time putting the book down when I had to go do other things. I may or may not have invented jobs for myself just so I could keep listening—I love it when a book does that to me!

I didn’t agree with everything in the story. It had a feminist slant (the female characters were expected to work alongside and do the same things the men did), and that bothered me a little. There was also some dishonesty and sneaking around that went on that didn’t sit so well with me.

But overall, this was a fun, engaging story with a slight mystery element and a strong emphasis on friendship and working together for the greater good. I loved it, and all three brothers I’ve shared it with since I read the book also enjoyed it. Recommended. ( )

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.
