Kurzbeschreibung

12. April 2005 Books of Ember
The People of Sparks picks up where The City of Ember leaves off. Lina and Doon have emerged from the underground city to the exciting new world above, and it isn’t long before they are followed by the other inhabitants of Ember. The Emberites soon come across a town where they are welcomed, fed, and given places to sleep. But the town’s resources are limited and it isn’t long before resentment begins to grow between the two groups. When anonymous acts of vandalism push them toward violence, it’s up to Lina and Doon to discover who’s behind the vandalism and why, before it’s too late.

When teenagers Lina Mayfleet and Doon Harrow lead their people up out of the Earth, fleeing their dying underground city of Ember, everything is new and a little frightening to the refugees--the sun and the moon, birds, trees, fire…and the people of Ember are strange to the 322 citizens of Sparks, one of the few towns on Earth to survive the time of The Disaster. How can they feed and house the 400 Emberites, the leaders of Sparks wonder, when they have just begun to be able to feed themselves comfortably? But if they don’t, these underground people with no survival skills will surely die in the wastelands. They take them in as best they can, but grumbling and bad feeling grows on both sides. Lina returns from a failed search for her persistent vision of a city of light to find the town, egged on by the power-hungry young thug Tick, once again at the point of war, forgetting how the Earth has been destroyed before. But Lina has seen the devastation left by The Disaster, and so she risks a brave move of reconciliation, and when Doon exposes Tick’s trickery, the two sides join as the new people of Sparks.

In this exciting and solidly constructed sequel to The City of Ember, Jeanne DuPrau moves the story on entrancingly, bringing along her cast of characters from underground and adding new dimensions and relationships as the action escalates to a satisfying conclusion that still allows for further volumes in this fine fantasy. (Ages 10 to 14) --Patty Campbell -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Pressestimmen

"Jeanne DuPrau has written one of the most important fables of our time, addressing both our fear of annihilation and of immigration, and she has done it with captivating grace and style ... The People of Sparks is full of suspense and asks good questions about what we owe each other in a community" -- Amanda Craig The Times "The anti-war message of The People of Sparks is more valid now than ever before" Achuka "The second in the trilogy but deserves to be read in its own right ... It has a powerful message for now. Jeanne DuPrau has embedded a topical issue into a completely credible future" -- Mary Hoffman TES "This is a gripping thriller with a biting message - violence has consequences. Well worth reading" -- Fiona Lowe The School Librarian "Interesting and often provocative" -- Clodagh Corcoran Inis

5.0 von 5 Sternen Go back to your Cave 7. März 2010
Von callisto TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch
Wir erinnern uns. Am Ende von City of Ember warfen Doon und Lina eine Nachricht mit den Anweisungen, wie man Ember verlassen kann in die Höhle, in der die Stadt versteckt liegt. Diese Nachricht wird tatsächlich gefunden und trotz einiger Verluste, wie dem Bürgermeister und seiner Helfershelfer, gelingt es 417 Emberianern die Stadt zu verlassen.
Nach 241 Jahren verlassen diese Menschen die einzige Heimat, die sie je gekannt haben und finden sich in einer ihnen vollkommen fremden Welt wieder, in welcher nach 4 Kriegen und 3 großen Plagen kaum noch ein Mensch lebt. Die Sonne ist viel zu grell für die Menschen von Ember, die ihr leben im Schein von Glühbirnen verbracht haben, sie sind aufgrund der Mangelernährung kleiner als normale Menschen und zudem blass und bekommen sofort Sonnenbrand und auch die Hitze setzt ihnen stark zu.
Als sie nach einigen Tagesreisen endlich auf die erste Menschliche Siedlung namens Sparks treffen, werden sie zunächst freundlich empfangen, man bietet ihnen Hilfe an, integriert sie in die Gemeinschaft, der 322 Bewohner von Sparks. Aber schon bald wendet sich das Blatt. Angst, Unverständnis und Fremdenhass führen dazu, dann nach langer Zeit wieder ein Krieg auszubrechen droht. Wird es Lina und Doon gelingen zu verhindern, dass ihre Familien und Freunde in einem sinnlosen Kampf sterben müssen, bei dem beide Seiten nur verlieren können?

Ember war dunkel und kalt. Sparks ist hell und heiß. Ember war ordentlich, Sparks ist unordentlich. Alles in Sparks erscheint den Emberianern fremd. Es gibt keine Elektrizität, man hantiert mit dem gefährlichen Feuer.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sehr gute Reihe für junge und ältere Leser 24. Juni 2014
Von Milli
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Auf den Inhalt möchte ich hier nicht eingehen, das haben bereits andere Rezensionen ausdrücklich getan.

Insgesamt eine sehr schöne Trilogie (Der "dritte" Teil: the prophet of Yonwood spielt viel früher, kann man auch weglassen). Geeignet für junge und ältere Leser.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lightning strikes again 18. August 2004
Von Jonathan Appleseed - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Although this is a very different book than The City of Ember, it is a perfect sequel, and not disappointing in the least. While The City of Ember may have been more inventive, in terms of an underground city that was on its last leg, this is infinitely more profound.

It's still inventive, though. A terrible Disaster has befallen the Earth, and the Emberites learn that they were sent to live below the Earth, in the event that the Disaster did, in fact, occur, and so that one day they could return to the surface and repopulate the world. If that isn't a terrific idea, I'm not sure what is.

The Emberites luckily find themselves in one of the more prosperous towns. As most in the town of Sparks are good and decent people, they agree to feed these strange newcomers for a certain amount of time, and while doing so teach them basic survival skills. As one can imagine, no Emberite possesses the skills to survive on the surface. All they knew was Ember, and the simple rules that governed survival in that city.

Sparks has its own governing rules, and Ms. DuPrau really shows a deft hand at creating intriguing cultures. It's obvious that she gave considerable thought to a post-apocalyptic world, and her vision of it is refreshing and true.

Sadly, greed raises its ugly head, on both sides, and the cultures have a terrible clash. But an important lesson is learned. It may seem trite to some, but it really is a powerful message. Paraphrased, it goes something like this: If someone does something mean to you, instead of doing something mean in return, try and do something good for them. The opportunity for such a deed presents itself, and we see this good faith effort in action. If I say more, it will be too revealing.

The ending of the book caused odd salty drops to fall from my eyes, because it brought the entire sequence full circle. The Emberites, we see, had something to teach the people of Sparks - and perhaps the whole world. Together, they are stronger than they are apart.

It's a heartwarming and beautiful story. I look forward to her next book with immense anticipation.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Spark of Inspiration! 28. Juni 2004
Von Roxyanne Young - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
EMBER was a gripping novel. As soon as I finished it, I emailed the author begging to know what happened next. She wasn't telling, of course. "You'll have to wait for the sequel," she said. Man, was it worth the wait. I rarely tell people that they have to buy a book, that they must not let another week go by without reading a particular title. Literature is very subjective, after all. What I love, another reader may find uninspiring. SPARKS is an exception to this.
Three chapters in, I was literally teary-eyed at the lyricism of Duprau's writing. Six chapters in, I couldn't put it down. I lost SLEEP to finish this book - my ultimate testament to a really good read.
THE PEOPLE OF SPARKS is a post-apocolyptic view of the world, after wars, plague and famine have wiped out most of the human race and the few people left are struggling for survival. In the first book, THE CITY OF EMBER, the City Builders have constructed a small city deep underground and stocked it with supplies in vast storerooms, then sent 100 couples with two children each to live there. The Builders know the wars, etc. are coming, and this is how they will save us all. After 200 years, the city infrastructure is crumbling and the city leaders are corrupt, supplies are running out, and the massive generator that keeps the lights on is failing, about to doom the Emberites to permanent darkness, but two young people find the way out, the way to the surface.
This leads us to book two in the series. The kids have dropped a message back down to the people of Ember telling them the way out, but will anyone come? They do. And they inundate a small settlement, falling on the mercy of the people who live there, a bedraggled lot, starving, exhausted, unable to move on, and without the skills to be useful members of the new community, the tiny village of Sparks. The Emberites have never seen trees, you see, or birds, or large fields of cabbages, or adobe houses, and fire is a terrifying thing.
What ensues is a fantastic story of generosity, deprivation, jealousy, and violence that may lead to the destruction of both communities. The lesson: there are no winners in war, and making peace means taking giant risks. This book has been haunting me for the two days since I finished reading it. If there were a world-wide cataclysmic event, who would survive? Would anyone? Will we ever learn that war only leads to war, violence only to more violence? Can we do something that will take us off the course of self-destruction? Is there hope for the human race?
Buy this book. Buy a copy for your local library. Buy a class set and donate it to your kids' school. It's that good.(...)

5.0 von 5 Sternen A worthy successor to City of Ember 27. Juli 2004
Von T. J. Mathews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
'The People of Sparks' is an excellent sequel to 'City of Ember' although the setting is not quite as original. Jeanne DuPrau deftly avoids the trap that many new authors fall into of trying to replicate the format that succeeded in the first book. While 'The People of Sparks' presents a more familiar setting than 'City of Ember', she still manages to paint a landscape unlike any we know.

If the author had stayed with that and limited herself to showing us her vision of a post-apocalyptic world then I would have been disappointed. As it is she gives us a whole new story. What would happen if a village of 300 mostly good people find themselves faced with the challenge of taking care of 400 starving refugees without the skills and resources to fend for themselves? Tensions would build as resources dwindle and us/them divisions would be sure to arise. Is this a small-scale version of the same conflicts that brought about the global cataclysm of the misty past? It's a good story and the reader might just finish it a little wiser.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Great Sequal 3. Juni 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I bought this just because I wanted to know why they were underground in the first place. And after finishing the book I was quite pleased. I actulately think it was better than the first one. I was afraid at first that it would just be all "ahh we just sunburned" about the emberties getting adjusted to the new world.
And if you think the last one ended it did not. Where are the 400 members of Ember going to go? How are they going to find food? How can they live in a world that's already been destroyed? And they can't just go to a nearby city and live there, could they? This new book answers all those questions and is amazingly believable without any mistakes (meaning in the plot, not gramatically) and it had new characters that are believable and have personaity of their own. And many people can relate to the new characters.
It is also written very well. Much more so than the City of Ember. And she had more symbolism that wasn't as corney as painting the sky blue when the sky really was blue (no offense Jeanne if you're reading this).
So if you liked the first book you should definately go read this one. And we learned why the Emberties lived underground and what the Disastor was. And it has this one new cool thing (a picture of it on the back cover) but I wont tell you any more.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A worthy sequel to City of Ember 1. Juni 2004
Von Nicholas Hodapp - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I am one of those Ember fans who anxiously awaited the release of the Sparks book since it was announced. I read it this Memorial Day weekend after first rereading Ember, to put me back in context.
The People of Sparks is a worthy sequel to The City of Ember, and I enjoyed reading it. Two things struck me as I read: 1st, The People of Sparks isn't as magical as The City of Ember. There is less mystery in Sparks than in Ember, and I was sad not to find it. That said, Sparks does a credible job addressing each of the unanswered questions raised in Ember. Had it not, I would have been disappointed.
The 2nd thing I noted is that Sparks obsessively ruminates on a few contemporary issues and their consequences - primarily war and conflict. Not that this is a bad thing; DuPrau does a fine job of crafting a story around issues her readers are certain to have questions about in real life.
If you enjoyed reading City of Ember, I highly recommend reading People of Sparks.
