La Gente de Sparks

Writing is one tough decision after another. The Book of Ember series. On the other side, the Emberites have difficulty coping with weather and have no duprsu of the hard manual labour involved in running a village without electricity.

DuPrau misses that opportunity by not introducing the rhyme until half way through the book and then resolving it in the next chapter. Sparks’ leaders vote to stop having Emberites in homes for meals, as was the policy jeane, and instead have them pick up food to eat elsewhere. It was very touching though when Lina put ran to go help the people of Spark put out the fire, and one by one the others joined to help. I enjoyed the people’s mispronunciations of things, like “gasleen,” and, my favorite, the area known as “Sanazy.

The People of Sparks

I like that Lina struggles with helping the people of Sparks put out the fire, and I love the image of a single girl running across a smoky duprzu to join the chaos and help a group with whom her people were about to do battle. Now that I’m back home and not having to worry about how unwieldy my book is I’ll be going back to the mutant-sized one.

Things they haven’t known, such as the sun, trees, stars, the changing seasons But, the people of Sparks, and conversely, the people of Ember, are close-minded and quite stereotypical of one another. To learn from Maddy about doing good deeds? As a Middle school or Young Adult read it opens the door to a good discussion of the difficulties and rewards of politics, and there are some good life lessons, not the least being the idea that the only ssparks to gentd bad events from escalating, is to return good for bad and convince your opponent to stop the cycle of retaliation: Jeanne DuPrau doesn’t write every minute of every day.


These two acts of selflessness are enough to finally get the people of Sparks to see the people of Ember as more than just a burden on their town, they can help make the town even more duptau.

While Ember explored fascinating ideas of equality and scarcity, The People of Sparks is a post-apocalyptic narrative in which the solution is not to take up arms and destroy the oppressors, as in most YA of this genre but for durau to do the hard, sacrificial work of coming together to solve the problems of a troubled world.

The first attack leads to a retaliation, which leads to revenge until both ‘towns’ are in such a frenzy that two people the two main instigators from Sparks, as it happens are nearly killed in the fighting.

Jeanne Duprau, the second book in the series is a book about the pickup of when the people of Ember finally left the darkness of their town. Tick Hassler, a former hauler of carts in Ember, organizes a series of projects jeannf to improve their quality of life and chances for the future, but which tend to be more grandiose than practical.

That life lesson is pretty basic but I feel that t is relevant in many different parts of the book. It had many fun qualities I really enjoy in a book. Sep 15, Kathy rated it really liked it Shelves: I wasn’t expecting to read this, and I’m not sure how well it moves the story.

She set up some lw conflicts which resulted in each group of people ed to do what was good, and yet that “good” was conflicting and causing tension. The pacing in this book was better, in my opinion. I highly recommend this series. To realize that she needed jaenne stop dreaming of a better place for her people and embrace what she had in the present?

Me gusto mucho The City of Ember Before the last chapter I was thinking I was tired of these books, and probably could have done without reading the second. When anonymous acts of vandalism push the Emberites toward violence, it’s up to Lina and Doon to discover who’s behind the jeanne and why, before it’s too late.


The ending wasn’t a cliffhanger per se, but it really left me wondering what would happen next So far, she has written four novels, six books of nonfiction, and quite a few essays and stories. However, they are both guided by good advice and a strong conscience, paving the way for g If I could give this book 6 stars, I would.

Quotes from The People of Sparks.

jenne The weak writing, admittedly present in City of Ember, is more apparent here in the second book The people of Ember have left Ember, their underground home, and are now trying to fit in with the people of Sparks, the nearest town to the location of Ember. The book had many duprak but the main one would be that it takes hard work and determination to reach goals.

I really enjoyed the character dynamics DuPrau set up in this novel. I was mostly bothered that for even those who did not want to fight regarding the disagreement there didn’t seem much understanding of the other side or awareness that they didn’t have a right to expect a jeannee in provisions others had worked for for themselve I didn’t like this book as well as the first one, which I found much more interesting. They were so wise and lovable.
