    I\'ve just finished reading the book. If you have the choice between the book or the movie, choose the book. The book is much, much better than the movie. At least, read the book first, then watch the movie.

    I was really disappointed in this movie. I've read the book and it was nothing like it. They changed everything. The book was amazing, but this movie ruined it. They have a 24 year old playing Doon, who is 12 in the book. It moved way to fast and the Pipes monster was a horrible idea. I usually don't dislike movies but The City of Ember is an exception. I'd rate it a 4/10. Skip it!

    Looks good but not as good as the book.
