People of Sparks

15 05 2013

So in my previous post, I said how I put City of Ember on the same level of sci-fi commentary and intelligence as a young adult novel as The Hunger Games.

I am going to take it a step further (and I know there are some crazy loyal fans of THG out there but whatever), and say that People of Sparks has more layers and is a deeper book than the books in THG trilogy.

There. I said it.

Don’t get me wrong. I love that THG is laden with layers of philosophy, like government corruption, commentary on violence and mass media, but there’s something about People of Sparks that isn’t as obvious, that is more nuanced in its message than THG, which I really appreciate.

Anyway, I highly recommend teens and adults alike to read People of Sparks. Then tell me if you agree or disagree with me.
