I am in the sixth grade. My teacher read this book to the class aloud each day. Everyday she would read two chapters to us. At first, the book seemed pretty dull, and boring. But then, as she continued, the book began to kill us with suspense. She used to leave off at the most suspensing part, and then have us move on to something different. I love this book. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
The plot itself is pretty interesting. It is kinda creepy how they find out that they were, after all living underground.
I am going to buy the sequel to "The City of Ember", which is "The People Of Sparks." There is also the prequel which is the most recent book of Ember which is called "The Prophet Of Yonderwood." My friend bought these books before the teacher read it to us, and I currently have all three of them. I borrowed them from her. I love these books soo much. I'm currently on the first chapter of "The Prophet Of Yonderwood."
