Praise
"In Doon's character,perhaps,DuPrau puts her finger on what draws many young readers to stories of dystopias. His is a predicament shared by many preadolescents: done with his childhood, Doon shudders at the broken society he must inherit, and cannot stand the apparent complacency of the adults around him. And what preadolescent isn't doomed, at least temporarily, to inhabit an emotional landscape of life-and-death urgency? Add in the dwindling resources and a corrupt city government, and the resemblance of DuPrau's fictional world to the reader's intensifies."
From the Publisher
Editors Note The city of Ember was built as a last refuge for the human race. Two hundred years later, the great lamps that light the city are beginning to flicker. When Lina finds part of an ancient message, she's sure it holds a secret that will save the city. She and her friend Doon must decipher the message before the lights go out on Ember forever! This stunning debut novel offers refreshingly clear writing and fascinating, original characters.
Annotation The underground City of Ember is the last refuge of human life in a post-apocalyptic world. When the City itself becomes endangered, it's up to 12-year-old Lina and her pal Doon to interpret an ancient message that might forever changes the lives of those who call the City of Ember their home. The book was made into a major feature film in 2008, starring Bill Murrey and Tim Robbins.
