movie versions

I was watching tv the other day and saw an ad for the new movie City of Ember. "Why doe sthat sound so familiar?" I asked myself. Well, duh - the novel, by Jeanne Duprau, is on the Big List. I should go ahead and read that before I see the flick.

When I first saw the ad I thought of it as a sort of anti-Nightfall by Asimov. But reading about it I see that the book and the film will be a bit more family friendly. The trailer certainly seems to be playing up the comedic aspects a bit.

Well, I'm pretty sure the novel is aimed at the young adult crowd, so that would make sense. But then, trailers can twist things pretty badly.
