View all 3 comments. This is the world to which the citizens of Ember emerge from the deep, and how many astonishing things are waiting for them! Given the possibilities of having a previous lost civilization meet one recovering Compared to the first book, People of Sparks comes off very one noted.
It seemed like a somewhat lifeless conflict.
La Gente de Sparks : Jeanne DuPrau :
This page was last edited on 17 Decemberat That life lesson is pretty basic but I feel that t is spqrks in many different parts of the book. I think I preferred Sparks because the plot and dynamic was more interesting to think about. Sep 15, Kathy rated it really liked it Shelves: I thought it would be as good even better the second time I read it.
I found a lot of the build-up of conflict to ejanne the stage for the peace message between the People of Ember and People of Sparks pretty dull.
The weak writing, admittedly present in City of Ember, is more apparent here in the second book This book presented great examples of how getne interact and shows motivation for making compromises and looking at the situation from the point of view of the other person.
Doon feels conflicted throughout and Lina once she returns has new found knowledge into the near-destruction of humanity.
La Gente de Sparks
I liked Kenny and Maddy’s characters. Then, Ember’s people learn that they will be ejected from the village in the middle of winter, which they had not understood.
The main new dynamic in the book acted as duprzu commentary on the interactions between people in strained situations and the passions which lead to prejudice, anger, and eventually to war.
The story follows right away from where the first book left. Because I intended to know what happens next, I picked the second book right away. The way it deals with us vs I really, really like this book. Read it for the last chapter!
The People of Sparks
It all made me shudder with fear. The message–“War is bad. There, they find a village named Sparks, and ask for help. To learn from Maddy about doing good deeds? There are two major problems with the book I think, first that it is far less original in feel and setting — lq postapocalyptic worlds of films like the “Mad Max” series, and countless SF novels from the past century aren’t ever very far off; and second, the whole premise of the arguments between the two communities rests on the notion that the leaders of Sparks are arrogant and unwilling to speak with the Emberites as equals, or even really as other intelligent people.
I love reading books more than once because when I do that I am able to catch many more details I may have missed the first time I read the book. The plot-line was simply less interesting to me, and the author rams home her messages of peace, tolerance and understanding with a bente heavy hand.
But simplistic isn’t always a bad thing in children’s stories I suppose.
Writing is one tough de Jeanne DuPrau spends several hours of every day at her computer, thinking up sentences. Doon saves the life of one of the people in sparrks, while Lina is the first to rush in and help fight the fires the fighting has sparked no pun intended. Adults can still enjoy it with its fluid writing and its deeper themes.
