Then People of Sparks
I think this book is a great book for all ages. I read The City of Ember and it was pretty good. Then I found out there were more so I bought The People of Sparks and it's better then the first.

Five Star Recommendation
I chose to read "The City of Ember" for a short literary analysis essay at school and I loved it. So naturally when I found out that there were two other books in the series that had also been published I bought both of them and started reading. In the novel "The People of Sparks" it was nice that Duprau did not have to use as much descriptive language as she did in her first installment. It made sense that since the world in which the characters were now experiencing was our world, with some changes, mild description would suffice. The beginning was engrossing and a good way to start the book. Though whether this was because of how the perspective was changed or because I was just excited to read the second book is debatable. The middle became slow in parts, but this is understandable considering character development and plot building. The climax was excellent; not so nearly desperate as the climax in "The City of Ember", but definitely worth the read. I loved this book along with its predecessor, and having also read "The Prophet of Yonwood" I cannot wait for the final installment. I'd recommend this book to anyone who loves good character development and post-apocalyptic novels.

Awesome book
Not as good as the first but, still a very good sequel to one of the best books I have ever read and the ending is kind of a cliffhanger so they are making a new book in the fall it is coming out and anyone who has read book 1 needs to read the whole series I just loved this book and the middle was a little boring It didn't have a lot of detail but, most important was the great beginning in the end I am going to read the third book because I just finished one and two read both those books

The People of Sparks
This book is an excellent book for all ages. The descriptive writing and paste of this book is great. I read it and couldn't put it down. It is not to violent our gory. It was just right. I wanted tot see a little more action in the beginning but other than that this book is great!
