I have a (small) obsession with books and tv shows. Proud geek.

The City of Ember (The First Book of Ember)

The City of Ember - Jeanne DuPrau I really love this story... If anyone has seen the film and is thinking of reading the book, the book is FAR better.

Although the film has it's merits (the plot is very much the same as the book), the film is severely limited in it's connection with the characters.

Instead, the book provides the reader with a very deep connection with the characters, and the mystery surrounding the fortunes of the town really grips you.

I must continue with the series one day. If you're into dystopia novels - read this.
