The City of Ember-- Jeanne DuPrau

An entire civilization was moved underground to ensure the survival of the human race. Their supplies are dwindling, the lights are flickering, and there doesn't seem to be anyway to escape.

Really liked this book. Read it in 2.5 hours. Some aspects reminded me a lot of Ayn Rand's Anthem. I thought that the author could have made it a little longer. Some of it was rushed, and the story, though wonderful, could have been more developed.

I'm very tentative to see the movie. I've already seen some errors in just the trailer. Eeps!

  1. We're like exact opposites when it comes to that... I saw the movie, loved it, but haven't yet read the book(s) :) I will say that even though I'm sure the movie wasn't completely accurate to the book, it was beautifully done. Really beautifully done. I definitely suggest you go see it! Even my Dad agreed that it was well done :)

  2. I haven’t read the book so for me it is a brand new experience but for my fellow friends they got it boring. But I think whether I have read it early I may enjoy it. Certain things to remember grate camera work also helps me to have good picture quality even I watch it at home
