    !!!

    This movie isn't exactly like the book, but it's close enough to still be excellent. A definite must-see.

    Excellent Movie and Book

    I rented this movie and loved it. When I saw that it was based on the book, I checked out the audio book from the library to listen to in the car. The book was as good as the movie. I then purchased the movie from B&N. I watched it with my nieces and nephew and they also loved the movie.

    Finally, a movie that holds true to the book!

    I was so excited when I saw that this book was going to become a movie! I have very high standards for movies made from books. I want them to be as close to my beloved story as possible, however I do understand that some changes have to be allowed. This movie did not disappoint me. It followed closely with the book, yet was easy to enjoy even if you hadn't read the book. If anything it would make you want to read or reread it. The ending went right along with the book and gave me goosebumps for how awesome it was. I recommend this movie and book to people who want to watch/read something original that will make you think about life and the choices people make.

    Best Book

    My Book Review: I read the book called City of Ember by Jeanne Duprau and it was a good book. These are some reasons why I liked this book. I liked that the setting of the book was in a place I would of nnot expected. I also liked how the autor explained the characters in the story. The author described the characters well. These are reasons why I liked the city of Ember.
