The book was an interesting and thought provoking read - my daughter read it in the 3rd grade. We watched the movie together and that was a huge disappointment. The book was so much better.

I have seen the movie a couple of times and enjoyed it enough to give it a rating of 3.5 to 4 stars. As long as neither of the main characters have annoying internal monologues I believe that this will be a solid 3.5 to 4 star rating, my…

I really enjoyed this book, and I think it is a great one for kids to read. It is set in a dystopia, but not one that is as dark as "The Hunger Games". Pretty enjoyable, and I will check out the rest of the series!

I'm always envious of kids who are reading this for the first time (and without watching the movie version) because they are going to get that awesome feeling at the surprise ending. This is one of the best sci fi books written for kids…

Can't believe I watched the movie first! The book was better. Revealed more than what the movie portrayed. A good read as post-apocalyptic books go.

I really loved this book, it brings me into a whole new world and I loved when it got to the Journey part. The ending was so good and it made me wanna read the second book so bad. I would definitely recommend this to all ages

The City of Ember is the best book I've ever read! My favorite part is the singing. I think the song is very nice and represents the dark city of Ember. Lina and Doon are really smart for kids that don't know what boat, paddles, candles,…
