Story picks up where City of Ember ends. DePrau portrays a very realistic future world. In this novel, she shows how well she understands human nature -- the good and the bad -- the fears and prejudices, as well as the the hopes and aspirations. A good, clean and wholesome tale for all ages. Loaded with adventure and suspense. The conclusion of the story is especially wonderful.

A very well-written piece but, I found myself saying,"Duh," often. I dont't reccomend this piece if your over 12 because of it's childish air. But if your looking for something fun and easy to follow go ahead, buy.

This is a superb story for kids and a blunt metaphor for the human condition (war and the consequences thereof). The narrators american drawl is quite acceptable. Great value, stronly recommended

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Definitely Recommend - not only is the story catching as Jeanne DuPrau delicately tells the story of how tiny little steps almost lead to a war, just because one party wants to beat the other one by just an inch. And she also tells the story of how this vicious circle can be stopped by overcoming just a little pride. Also it is read beautifully and easy to follow.
