3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Transparent on January 1, 2011
Format: Paperback
The stereotypical task of the science fiction novel is to imagine a world in order to promote a better understanding not only of where we are going, but also where we are now. Bruce Caron's Junana does both with majesty and wit. What the reader will find in the pages of this book is nothing short of a vision of the near future that is neither implausible nor impractical, but appealing nonetheless for its radical understanding of the power of gaming and the internet as a tool for learning and collective action. Junana is not only a fun read, it is a provocative and compelling analysis of a range of possibilities for systemic social and political change: change that is not merely plausible or possible, but even perhaps imminent. Caron's book is not merely an engaging piece of science fiction, it is as well a robust thought experiment about how human action no longer requires institutions like schools and states, but merely access to a means of communication and learning that is open and accessible to all. I cannot recommend the book highly enough.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Caseorganic on January 3, 2011
Format: Paperback
In a society quickly shifting into an age of hyper-connectivity, Junana is a timely read. The narrative is as fast-paced and complex as our supermodern technosocial lives. Caron creates a world so vivid and omniscient that one wonders if Caron is simply reporting on something that is already happening. Caron effortlessly handles multiple perspectives, social classes and age groups. Junana should appeal to educators, marketers, programmers and anyone who is a critical thinker looking for something unique and rich for their cranium to bite into. Junana is an important work that provides a lens with which to greater understand the rapid change we're currently experiencing.

This book brought together a great story, relevant to where we are headed with knowledge and learning.
It was a great read. If you liked Snow Crash you will love this one. I would highly recommend it.
