    1 thought on “Fierce September

    1. I decided to read this book because it was the only book on my shelf and the blurb was also very amusing I read this book despite knowing that it was the sequel of Juno of Taris.The category I placed this book in the bingo board is A Book With A Female Main Character I found this category interesting because I am a young female and I could understand some situations Juno s going through.In the end of every chapter, there are three sentences that start with have you heard and it s just all the ru [...]

    2. This book really kept my attention The ending was full of much closure, so I m curious to see what is in store next.

    3. Read this a little while after reading the first one so I was confused at points about certain details it was still really good but I definitely preferred the first one.

    4. The previous novel, Juno of Taris, ended with the arrival of outsiders and the small community realising that domed island of Taris was in big trouble due to cracks appearing in the protective cover that makes their island airtight, and the support systems failing one by one Initially leaving was going to be an option with the inhabitants able to choose to either leave the island or stay, now the leaving option has escalated to leave now or die A huge storm is scheduled to hit the island in a fe [...]

    5. Because I had not read the first of the series, a large section of the story felt rushed, disjointed and cumbersome to begin with There are just so very many characters in the first chapters and because it is a continuation of a previous book, there is no gradual introduction possible I felt a bit overwhelmed and confused.That was a fitting state to approach the story because, in it, the island of Taris is dying and everyone must leave immediately All was rush and confusion as rescue arrives and [...]

    6. It was good but dragged on a bit in some cases These were things that stuck out to me Perception she was so young most people were not inclined to believe the predictions of a two year old Juno about her little sister Hera we took in as many as we could Some said it was too many Others asked how we could turn away the desperate page 90 Think about compassion perspectives, stories Fairness, equality and rights or ownership how does time influence development Change In 2070 quite a few parents wer [...]

    7. I loved the concept of the first book in this series Juno of Taris I immediately sought out the second one I was disappointed with it though It was cool to see the futuristic technologies and the patriot in me was happy that it was set in New Zealand but it was kind of boring plot wise I give it 3 stars because it made me feel anger and pain on behalf of Juno and her family friends.I like books that make me care about the characters and because I cared I kept reading I only re read it once and p [...]

    8. What a great sequel to Juno Of Taris As refugees brought to a land that has suffered much over the years of Taris existence, Juno and her compatriots face a great deal of prejudice, which is enflamed by the sudden onset of a pandemic, threatening everybody in the country.We follow developments in the lives of Juno s people she learns about life as she s growing up and there a little touch of the psychic Great stuff

    9. The sequal to Juno of Taris.Whilest this book started off a little slow, by about 1 3 of the way through I was encaptured I d hate to live in a society where pandemics rule over us and where we have ruined our planet to the point of no return in certain places.Juno ajusts slowly to the new world around her The OUtside Vima on the other hand adjusts brilliantly.I loved the metion of my hometown in this book

    10. Fierce September didn t hold my interest to the same degree as the first book in the series The plot is a logical follow up to Juno of Taris but I didn t feel the same sense of urgency and mystery I also found it hard to believe that a character with telepathy wouldn t spend most of the hours of their day exploring this gift Despite these shortcomings, the novel is definitely worth reading and left me wondering what book three, Heart of Danger, is like.

    11. I don t usually buy read fiction for young people but I did in this case because Beale is a fellow NZ author The story is in the tradition of the Famous Five and I found it very enjoyable A different taste and flavour to adult fiction and restful to read The style reminded me of Veronica Roth s Divergent trilogy, the only other young adult novels I ve read in recent years.Beale is a very talented writer.Pity about the cover it does not reflect the story at all.

    12. This book wasn t as good as the first But fortunately, it was intriguing It wasn t an action packed plotline that kept me reading, it was of an interesting one This book, like Juno Of Taris, is different to the kind of books I normally read and enjoy, so its quite suprising I liked it I rate it around 3 ish 4 ish stars.

    13. Not as compelling as I remember the first book being but some interesting ideas about what New Zealand may be like in the future.At the end of each chapter there are links to blog entries with information about the story but I couldn t see the point of them If I m reading a book, I m reading a book, I don t want to be getting up to the internet at the end of every chapter.

    14. I loved this sequel to Juno of Taris and its underlying message about immigration It was much NZ than the first volume too The people of Taris are rescued and taken to Aotearoa where they are blamed by the population for a contagious disease outbreak I look forward to the third installment I might actually finish this series.

    15. Much like the first book, Fierce september had corruption and mystery, but unlike the first one this book was intriging as it was interesting to see how the citizens of Taris reacted to all the new technology Most of them were like old people figuring out how to work skype or facebook, when it came to technology.

    16. I really liked this book It was a very interesting read, and very well done I look forward to the next book, if there is one.

    17. The book was great Full of so much action The ending wasn t great, would have loved a cliff hanger to lead into the next book

    18. Fascinating to read a view on what Aotearoa would look like in a dystopian setting Would ve like mention of Maori culture or did it not survive Still a great read.

    19. I really liked this book It was a very interesting read, and very well done I look forward to the next book, if there is one.
