    The city of Ember was built as a last refuge for the human race. Two hundred years later, the great lamps that light the city are beginning to flicker. When Lina finds part of an ancient message, she's sure it holds a secret that will save the city. She and her friend Doon must decipher the message before the lights go out on Ember forever! This stunning debut novel offers refreshingly clear writing and fascinating, original characters.

    Jolie Brewer says: "Good story; annoying narrator and background sound"

    Story

    The story is the only thing that has kept me listening to this audio book. The narrator tries too hard to come up with different voices for characters, and so felt she had to include lip-smacking and other irritating mannerisms to differentiate character voices. Some listeners might consider this a great performance, but I was ready on several occasions to shut off my mp3player and just go get a paper edition from the library. There is also background noises and music occasionally, which was sometimes distracting.
