The City of Ember - REVIEW
“The city of Ember” is a story about a messenger girl and a pipework boy (Lina and Doon) who will discover a new city with the help of a message they need to escape before it's too late and the city disintegrates as a result of an explosion.
Lina is a messenger who has always been dreaming of a new city; she likes to draw the city of her dreams. After her granny dies, Poppy (her little sister) and her lived with Mrs. Murdo.
Doon works in the pipe works and wants to fix the generator to give the city permanent light; he is Lina’s best friend and both are the first to step on the new city of their dreams.
The great thing about the book is that it is really interesting and has a lot of tension all along , but particularly at the end of it. It also shows that sometimes our dreams can come true. What we didn't like much was the descriptions. This novel has many difficult words, but you can understand them if you keep on reading.
We recommend "The city of Ember" to those people who like books about adventure , friendship and mystery. It also gives us an idea of how the world could look like in future. This is one of the books we most liked; we also recommend to have a dictionary handy to deal with the difficult words.
