The People of Sparks
The People of Sparks | Jeanne DuPrau
7 posts | 55 read | 8 to read
When the people of the underground city of Ember follow Lina and Doon to the surface, little prepares them for what they will encounter. Leaving behind the darkness that has been their home for generations, they discover a world of colour, warmth and light. The people of the small village of Sparks seem willing to help them . . . at first . . . but life on the surface has it's dark side too. Before long the villagers of Sparks become more reluctant to share their precious resources with the strange, new underground people. Lina and Doon watch in horror as the differences between the two groups grow into resentment, anger and hate. Somehow they must help overcome the distrust and bring the people of Ember and Sparks together.

This is the second book from the City Of Ember series. As Doon and Lina first arrive from underground they are faced with many challenges. They must find shelter and food fast as their first winter is arriving. This is a fantasy genre book and I would recommened it to people who like suspenseful and adventurous books

MissYaremcio Great review Tak! I am glad that you are enjoying this series! 2mo

I don't think Katie liked "The City of Ember: The People of Sparks" as much as I did. Though she never left my side. I wonder what her breaking point was. Maybe because they had chickens in that city but she couldn't eat them. I would be mad too. #catsoflitsy #greatbook #easyread #fun

I wasn't going to go in, but I'm weak.....

LitHousewife I would also have to browse. 3y
BekahB Awww...yep the Hastings in my city is having their going out of business sale too. It's sad to walk through, but hard to pass up the discounts. I've been there multiple times to get books. They say they're staying open until October. Not sure what they plan to do with the stock they aren't able to sell. 3y
Bookworm83 @LitHousewife I couldn't help myself! 3y

Donna_sBookMinute @BekahB -- You're so right about it being sad to walk through. I remember the feelings of ambivalence while shopping at Borders when they went out of business a few years ago. I still sometimes cast a wistful eye towards the big and tall men's store that's there now. 3y
Bookworm83 @BekahB Yeah...50% off used books is not bad at all. The books were pretty picked over by this point, but I found a couple 😊 3y
Bookworm83 @Donna_sBookMinute I miss Borders! 3y
Laura317 I think Amazon is really hurting some of the smaller bookstores. 😒 3y
megt I hate to see any store selling books going out of business, but it is hard to pass up those sales! 3y
