Juno of Taris Control Subjagation Preventing the spread of knowledge Destruction of books ControlA fabulous book about 500 people living in a biosphere for two hundred years Or is it 200 years?So many uestionsEleven year old Juno asks too many uestions which makes her a risk to a society clinging to their carefully manufactured livesThis was my daughter's school book and I devoured itFleur Beale weaves a clever story about love loss and hairstyles with enough friction to keep you guessing A thriller cunningly disguised as a YA dystopian book I really enjoyed this book and am excited to read the other 2 Here's an embarrassing confession in a state of haste and a culmination no doubt of nearly 2 months of extra stress I gave myself a No1 haircut instead of the No3 that I had intended I did this the evening before I picked this book at random off a shelf so when I read the first line On Taris we shave our heads I had to laugh Of course our situations immediately diverged but I imagine that my distress over so idiotically removing my hair was somewhat similar to Juno's distress every dayAs I'm writing this I'm also watching Stephen Fry's Planet Word and he's talking about libraries that have been burnt in order to control knowledge and information There are still public book burnings as we all know Censorship and control of knowledge are the prime themes in this YA sci fi novel about a domed environment and its inhabitants Juno narrates the story which she tells basically from when she was 11 and we are caught up immediately in the mind of a girl who's no longer a child but is neither an adolescent yet but who has always been a bit of a rebel Well others think of her as a trouble maker And it doesn't take much to imagine how trouble makers are viewed by the community leadersThe characterisation the description of the community lifestyle and the description of the environment are all thoroughly involving and great mind pictures are built up This is a series I'm going to follow and I have the other two titles Excellent Disappointed thought it was going to be good The way they solve the problem is so unfulfilling and boring It's poorly executed and I wouldn't recommend In this book there was only one part I enjoyed and it wasn't even that great What happens when life in a perfect protected bubble unravels Juno is about to find outYour ordinary teen Not uite Because Juno lives — in the not too distant future — on Taris a bubble covered island in the Pacific to which a select few hundred people were evacuated when Earth's inhabitants took everything just a bit too far and began to self destruct On Taris there are many rules governing appearance behaviour even procreation but all are for the good of the community to ensure the survival of humankind Or are theyAs Taris' protected environment begins to break down and Juno's uestioning nature takes hold she uncovers some startling inconsistencies in many of the 'factual' histories she has grown up with She also begins to develop some uite startling almost supernatural abilities As Juno faces increasing danger she finds allies in the most surprising placesJuno of Taris is the first novel in an exciting YA fantasy series the end of the book is such a cliffhanger I mean does the ship land or not? do the people onboard the ship mean well or not ??????????? Answers people Answers Beales novel has an unsophisticated plot and writing style undeveloped characters and the themes of identity and belonging are poorly executed The characters were obtuse and were difficult for me to connect with which affected how enjoyable the story ‘Juno of Taris’ seemed like it would be a novel filled with danger and passion and a good read overall but it was a substandard book that personally did not appeal to me I hate this book I've had to read it for English and it's just so predictable and boring Everyday that I have had to read it I have been forcing myself because there is no other way to get through it I just can't deal with it It's boring and average I'd rather read another Shakespeare play instead of this because at least Shakespeare is interesting This is my first YA novel by a New Zealand author and I was thrilled by how good it was The setting is mysterious and unfolds gradually What I loved most was Juno and the messages the author gave us about the importance of being an independent thinker in a world where everyone is telling you that is dangerous Looking forward to reading the next book in the series Interesting book but not keen to read the next books in the series
