The People of Sparks

The People of Sparks (Ember, Book 2) The People of Sparks by Jeanne Duprau
My review
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
As read on CD by Wendy Dillon. The People of Sparks is the followup to City of Ember, in which two children lead their people out from their dying underground city to the surface. It follows the people as they try to assimilate themselves into a small town, only to find struggles and misunderstandings blocking their every move. As a juvenile fiction book, it has a fairly transparent war/peace analogy to the real world, but it’s still a decent read, and the plot, such as it is, moves briskly to its obvious conclusion.
Back to my normal reading now, next up is Hammered by Elizabeth Bear.
