I loved that the main characters - Lina and Doon - are honest and warm, with realistic struggles: Doon is still working on controlling his temper, and Lina's curiosity and impulsiveness still tend to cause trouble. However, they are both guided by good advice and a strong conscience, paving the way for g...more
Jeanne DuPrau's second of the Books of Ember series continues the trend begun in the introductory novel, The City of Ember. Compulsively readable, lively and easy, The People of Sparks was a novel mostly on-par with the levels of excellence from its impressive predecessor. By drastically changing the setting, as well as introducing new characters and ideas allows for an entirely different kind of novel than the first; the author makes a story replet...more

In Sparks there are some rather significant changes to the plot dynamics which allow for some intriguing new commentary on humanity and social interactions. We're given a pos...more
I thought the 1st book was more of an adventure. This book deals with different groups trying to survive and how small differences can become big deals. This book is probably more realistic, in that it deals with the day to day survival of 700 or so people (400 from and city of ember and 300 from the city of sparks). Both groups are trying to survive, with the people of ember depending on the good will of the people of sparks. This dependence takes its toll on both of the groups. After a figh...more

Because I intended to know what happens next, I picked the second book right away. And going through the first part of the book I made a conclusion that I would like this better than the first. And I did!
The story follows right away from where the first book left. The second book showed the struggle of the Emberites to learn, adapt, and live in the new world they are now in.
The pacing in this book was better, in my opinion....more
not any positive criticism - just stating a fact that people looked forward to this book.
With good reason - City of Ember is a terrific page-turning mystery that peels back layer after layer until the climactic reveal. The People of Sparks, on the other hand, is an entirely different genre, possibly and probably alienating many of the series' original fans.
Unfortunately for Jeanne DuPrau, while her intentions were good and mostly successful....more
