Chapters 1 – 3

Posted: November 2, 2010 in Uncategorized

During the Emberites’ journey from underground to the places where they will be staying in Sparks, what do you think has surprised or scared them the most about the outside world?

  1. Chad says:

    I think all of the of them are suprised because light comes fro m the sky.

  2. Nate says:

    I think what scared them the most were the chickens because they kind of backed up from him.

  3. Tony says:

    I think the way the town is set-up and how the people act surprise or scare the Emberites a little bit

  4. Kiana says:

    I think that they will be scared of how bright it is and how hard it is to walk without pavement. Maybe they will be exsposed to a new disease and their bodies will not be immune to them.

  5. Nick says:

    I think the changes of temperature has scared them the most. Every day in Ember, it stayed the same temperature, but in the real world it is alot hotter in the day and colder at the night.

  6. melinda says:

    i think the darkness scared them because the black out that happened in ember

    • Kayla Mariee. says:

      yepp. because all the darkness comes gradually in Sparks soo their probably like “whats going on??” cause its dark for HOURSS

  7. Tony says:

    I agree with Nick and Chad, the temperature freaks them out a little bit and the sunlight

  8. mariel says:

    What scared the Emberites the most was the animals, the sun, and not knowing whats around them.

  9. Davon tae says:

    i think it scaRED most of them lol and the temp stayes the the same most of the days at niqht

  10. brady says:

    i think they were most afraid of just how the outside world looked compared to ember
    like how none of them knew what bread was.
    or how none of them ever saw a tree.

    • kevin says:

      i agree with you with the tree part but they should know what bread is what else would they have ate

      • Kiana says:

        well they didn’t have bread i ember because it wouldve got all moldy and stuff so there would be no point of trying to keep it in the storage rooms

  11. Nick says:

    I agree also.

  12. katie says:

    people should have stoped to help the others who fell.

  13. jodi says:

    i think they were scared of the chickens the most.

  14. Katey says:

    I think the chickens and the sun scared them the most.

  15. jodi says:

    why would they take the old people into the houses? there gonna die soon anyway!!!!!!they should take the kids only and the ill.

  16. Kayla Mariee. says:

    I agree with all of you but Kiana’s answer was the best :). Also I would be scared to to see all his movement, light, strange animals and uneven ground if I was trapped underground for YEARS!

  17. Mirandaaaa. (; says:

    I agree with some of these comments. I do think the sun scared them because they’re so used to being in the dark and then they come into a new place that is so bright. These comments are funny btw. (;

  18. Kayla Mariee. says:


  19. jodi says:

    thats not mean….its true.KAYLA

  20. kevin says:

    i think what scared the emberites the is the things they never seen before like the chickens and other animials and everything else

  21. jodi says:

    well i guess only the ill should go in the houses cuz da kids have alot of energy so…they can live outside…hahaah

  22. Mirandaaaa. (; says:

    Jodi old people are people too the kids are younger but even if the old people are gonna die soon they still should have the oppurtunity to live. How do you know we can’t be under ground? and then two kids discover a way out for us but by that time your very old and sick would you like them to leave you behind?

  23. Carmie (: says:

    I think what scared them the most would have to be the sun how it rises and sets also the weather changing, they didn’t have this stuff in Ember.

  24. zack says:

    i believe the people of ember were scared of the darkness because in ember it was the lights were on one second and the next they were out meaning it was night time, and on the surface of earth it gradually gets dark instead of instantly

  25. Ariana:) says:

    I think the people of Ember were afraid of the sky and the sun like Chad said. 🙂

  26. Myranda M. (: says:

    I think what scared them was the ball of fire in the sky, the sky itself and definitely the way the people acted and the animals. I mean Lina jumped when she heard the “Baa-aa-aa”

  27. maryann says:

    I think the people were afriad of the sun and the animals, and how it is more difficult to walk on the outside rather than underground.

  28. Michael says:

    I think the goat or sheep scared them the most because when it made a noise all the people jumped.

  29. Matt says:

    I have decided that I am going to type ‘correctly’. What scared the Emberites the most, in my opinion, was the animals. They were not familiar with them. When the group saw a chicken, they backed up and were very cautious of it.

  30. Dante says:

    I agreeee!!!!

  31. Jameree. says:

    I think that the Emberites were somewhat frightned by the people of Sparks because the Emberites described how tall and dark they were and that probably was unusual for the Emberites.

  32. zack says:

    the chickens also scared them, but i want to see how they will react to rain or a storm.

  33. flav says:

    I think how big the new world was scared them the most. Also the animals, and the sun. Being underground the city of Ember could’ve only been so big. To come up on the surface and see this world would be overwhelming and frightening. I don’t blame them for being afraid of things we see/ use in our everyday lives.

  34. Ariana:) says:

    I mean think about it, you’ve been living underground for your whole life and now all of a sudden light comes from the sky!!

  35. Monica says:

    I think the people are afraid of the chickens and how they lived underground there whole life and now they come to a “new world” that has light from the sky itself.

  36. Sammie says:

    i was so suprised when i read about the mayor & his guards.

  37. Myranda M. (: says:

    i think that what scard them the most was the big fire ball in the sky, and since the temperature was hotter than in Ember. But the most that scared them I think was the sheep or goat that went “Baaa-a-aa” because everyone jumped, and ditto for the chicken.

  38. Carmilla(: says:

    i think what scared them the most would have to be the rising and setting of the sun plus the weather changing, they didn’t have this stuff in Ember.

  39. DeShawn says:

    i think they will be afraid that its so big becuase they were confined to the hole underground. also i know they will be afraid of the fact that it goes from day to night they might think someone stole the sun or something. oh and like the moon is just a random white dot in the sky and it changes, like im afraiad of the moon becuase people say it can control you so like i know they will be afraid of the moon

  40. zack says:

    where are the adults and everybody else who hasn’t been offered a home to stay in going to sleep at? the plaza?

  41. jodi says:

    i think there scared of the sun, chickens, and fire……..i thought they had a fire place in mrs.Murdos house……… well i guesss not…… did the old people get out of the hole… rele there old they cant walk well!!!!!!!!!!!!???????? :p

  42. Ariana:) says:

    I Mean all he had was the city so why was he so mean to it?
    I’m glad him and Loomer got what they deserved.
