In the year 241, twelve-year-old Lina trades jobs on Assignment Day to be a Messenger to run to new places in her decaying but beloved city, perhaps even to glimpse Unknown Regions.
  1. 150
    Le Passeur par Lois Lowry (FFortuna)
    FFortuna: The Giver is much darker, but these are similar in premise.
  2. 81
    Hunger Games - Tome 1 par Suzanne Collins (Bitter_Grace)
  3. 50
    Le peuple d'en haut par Jeanne DuPrau (moongrove2)
    moongrove2: It is the sequal
  4. 40
    Uglies, Tome 1 : par Scott Westerfeld (Bitter_Grace, goodiegoodie)
  5. 20
    Running Out of Time par Margaret Peterson Haddix (Runa, HollyMS)
  6. 21
    Z for Zachariah par Robert C. O'Brien (atimco)
    atimco: Z for Zachariah treats the same basic theme — the destruction of earth and what the characters must do to survive — but O'Brien's book is much more sophisticated. It's probably not the greatest for young readers, but an adult will find much to enjoy here.
  7. 00
    Rougemuraille. Cluny le Fléau par Brian Jacques (FFortuna)
    FFortuna: Mostly dissimilar, but the Redwall books deal with the same kinds of puzzles if that's the draw.
  8. 00
    Atherton, Tome 1 : Le Palais du Pouvoir par Patrick Carman (Yehudit)
  9. 00
    Devil on My Back par Monica Hughes (Shanshad)

This book is a great book for middle schoolers because it adds concepts of science and fiction to keep the readers engaged in what they are reading. This book is full of adventure and is exciting, while it also educational. It is a great book to use for a read-aloud. ( )

It's a world with no sun, lit only by electricity. But the generator is dying and the citizens of Ember don't know what to do. 12-year-old Lina discovers an ancient document that may be the secret to surviving Ember's decay, but time is running out. This book's a page turner, a mystery, and a thought-provoker. ( )

I'm tempted to attribute the dumbed down world building, logic flaws, and flat characters to the fact that this is written as children's literature, but I've read far too many excellent stories in that category to accept that children don't need or deserve better. Much of the ignorance of the people of Ember is explained at the end - that the adults who were chosen to populate that world were under strict orders to not pass on knowledge of the world before, but that just seems like a cop-out to me. Children ask questions, and their caregivers didn't have anyone preventing them from answering after they were dropped off in Ember. There was no satisfactory explanation for why the Builders demanded that their history be erased. In fact, it's nonsensical, if they expected that their descendants would need to emerge from Ember and re-integrate into the outside world some 200 years later. This is just one of the many logical flaws that kept me disengaged from the book. The characters and their relationships with one another had no depth. Lina feels very little grief for her grandmother, and forgets her death almost immediately. She seems to feel very little for her sister except concern when the child wanders off and is lost. When she refuses to leave Ember without her sister later, it seems borne of a sense of responsibility rather than any actual connection. She might as well have been refusing to leave without her only pair of shoes. I finished the story mostly because it was on audio and kept me company while doing some chores around the house, but if I had been actually reading the book, I probably would have put it down halfway through and not picked it up again.

While a book like ''Faerie Wars'' diverts young readers from their daily lives, one like ''The City of Ember'' encourages them to tackle the most ambitious tasks. Hard work can save the day, it promises. It's an old-fashioned lesson that is somehow easier to swallow when delivered in a futuristic setting.

When the city of Ember was just built and not yet inhabited, the chief builder and the assistant builder, both of them weary, sat down to speak of the future.

In the city of Ember, the sky was always dark. The only light came from great floodlamps mounted on the buildings and at the top of poles in the middle of the larger squares.
