City of Ember


I saw the movie and I haven't read the book which is part of a series by Jeanne DuPrau. I plan on reading the books though because the movie was really great. It stars Saoirse Ronan and Tim Robbins. Its about the underground city of Ember, and two teens journey out of it. They city looks pretty magical, bu its falling apart. The teens have to solve the mystery inside the box to get out of the city because the generator is going to give out and the city will be forever dark.

I too have only seen the movie at this point and although it was okay...I've heard the book series is much better. Can't wait to see what you think of the books....thanks for sharing!

I have been curious of the movie and the books. Sounds like it is something to watch. I bet my son would live to watch it with me.

Thanks!
