    A few weeks ago, a bunch of friends and I were all having drinks at their house and one of the roommates got a new kitten so she was having a quiet night in I had so much fun there let s be honest here, I always do but me being me, I decided to have a random hour long discussion with said roommate about nerdy things like the pros and cons of different computer operating systems, internet privacy and of course, BOOKS This friend has just recently moved to Australia from New Zealand so when we A few weeks ago, a bunch of friends and I were all having drinks at their house and one of the roommates got a new kitten so she was having a quiet night in I had so much fun there let s be honest here, I always do but me being me, I decided to have a random hour long discussion with said roommate about nerdy things like the pros and cons of different computer operating systems, internet privacy and of course, BOOKS This friend has just recently moved to Australia from New Zealand so when we got talking about what Australian authors that she MUST READ IMMEDIATELYlike me randomly bringing the topic up and started fangirling and I was curious about New Zealand authors She told me her New Zealand author ever was Fleur Beale and her favourite book by said author was Juno of Taris Juno of Taris was the ONLY book she bought with her when she moved to Australia could you imagine, having to leave so many books behind cries and after telling me about it, she kindly lent it to me Now Juno of Taris is a dystopian young adult novel and follows the story of an 11 year old girl named Juno who shock , lives on the island of Taris Taris was the brainchild of the 21st century world and was created to survive the virus epidemic, wars and hatred of the 21st century, even if nobody else in the world did Taris is completely isolated from the Outside, is protected by a dome and eventually resulted in a totalitarian cult like society where it is a requirement to shave your hair The story is absolutely brilliant, there were so many twists, turns and surprises that left my jaw hanging and left me in shock The way Fleur Beale has weaved together the plot was incredible What at first seemed to be a fairly neat, predictable plot soon grew into something muchcomplicated and action packed than expected It was really refreshing to read because the plot was not only layered, it made me think The society Juno lives in reminds me of a communist society Everybody does the same things, works the same sorts of jobs, has to get selected for ridiculous things like have a child and the qualities the chosen parents choose for their children all bare the same sort of resemblance I loved how this topic was explored in addition to the regular dystopian government.In addition to the story, the characters were wonderful Juno was such a different heroine and it was interesting to see how much she grew literally throughout the novel The novel starts with Juno at age 11 and ends with Juno aged 14 Now this sounds a little strange but considering it was a 350 page novel with 3 birthdays squeezed in, the pacing was ideal for this novel The birthdays didn t feel rushed or jammed together and neither did anything else, it all flowed together pretty nicely The only real issue I had with this which is why I had such a difficult time rating this was the writing It s hard to explain the first 100 200 pages seemed to have writing that was sort of disjointed and it was in past tense which at first, I didn t think suited the novel It was all, We did this, then they did this Then this happened BUT I do have a theory on this You know how when a lot of younger kids tell a story to you they basically go along the lines of, This happened, then this happened and then I did this Well, because Juno was 11, I have a feeling the author quite cleverly did this intentionally because the older Juno got throughout the novel, the less disjointed the writing seemed and the past tense and writing in general was easier to read So I don t know God, this is difficult to write I didn t particularly love the writing at the beginning of the novel but I think she did this intentionally to connect us with JunoSo what I m TRYING to say is that Fleur Beale is basically a sneaky genius.This is definitely worth a read and I ll definitely be readingof Fleur Beale s books in the future AHHHH I JUST FOUND OUT THIS IS THE FIRST IN A TRILOGY Ohhhh yeahhh dances

    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 No.1 haircut instead of the No.3 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 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 No.1 haircut instead of the No.3 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 day.As 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 leaders.The 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

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here 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

  7. Maddisen says:

    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.

  8. Melissa Simmonds says:

    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.

  9. Tamula says:

    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.
