The City of Ember (Books of Ember Series #1)

The City of Ember (The Ember Series, #1) - Jeanne DuPrau Not as exciting as I remember it being - but I also remember it not quite being as exciting as I had hoped at the first read, too. It's an interesting and good-for-kids dystopia, but it doesn't quite pack a punch in any way. The characters are relatively flat and the story only shaded with the broadest strokes. Still, having picked up the third and fourth books on the cheap over the last year, I'm hoping that the entire series creates a full-er experience.Review TK (will be a "Books of Ember" review, encompassing all four books).
