YMMV / The Books of Ember
aka: The City Of Ember

The book series:

  • Anvilicious:
    • War is BAD.
    • Organized religion is literally puppy-kicking awful, if you believe The Prophet of Yonwood.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Doon and Lina, though they are Platonic Life Partners for most of the series.
  • It Was His Sled: The fact that Ember is an Underground City is not found out until the end of the first book, but good luck finding someone who treats that like a spoiler (Hell, it even says this on the main page!).
  • Paranoia Fuel: One doesn't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that the situation in The Prophet of Yonwood (the U.S. battling a terrorist nation that threatens total war) is a natural progression from what the world is going through today.

The film adaptation:
