Is this what it was like during the Dark Ages, after Rome's technology fell by the wayside? This is shown in the book when Doon and Lina, even though they are just teenagers, find the way out of Ember and lead others to the above ground world. Still the book has some narrative drive, Ms. Sadly, life got busy and it took me another 4 months to finally read the continuation. Jeanne DuPrau is true to her characters and the message of greed and the importance of empathy is strong.

I can't believe that it took a couple of Emberites to embrace the idea of organizing the volumes and that it never occured to the people of Sparks to utilize this massive resource.
