My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.
Answers some questions I had leftover after finishing The City of Ember (mostly why did people build a huge underground city and how long did it take them). I think I enjoyed it more the first time around. This time, the story didn't capture me and I ended up skimming a lot of it.
ETA: If you name a dog Otis but don't make him a pug, I'm going to imagine a pug anyway.
