Student Picks: The City of Ember

Title: The City of Ember

What is it about?

It’s about a somewhat primitive future set underground where there is no light. The population of the city is trying to escape from their destiny. It is also a mystery, which has to be solved.

What did you think of it, and why did you pick it up?

I enjoyed this book because it got me thinking about the future and what it might be like.

Star Rating: 4.5 out of 5 (for the book), but only 3 out of 5 (for the film)
