Juno and Juliet Taylor are twin sisters heading off together to the University of County Galway. It’s the Irish girls first time away from home, and they’re looking forward to exploring much more than the library, learning much more than what the books will teach them. With the delightful ease and charm of a young Roddy Doyle, Julian Gough takes them off to a first year of college worthy of a twenty-first century Jane Austen novel. Juliet, our narrator, is both adoring and envious of her identical twin, whom she considers the more beautiful, not to mention more clever and more charming, sister. When the college boys – and a certain handsome grad student – begin dropping at Juno’s feet (as usual, her sister assures us), Juliet becomes determined not to be outdone. And so Juno and Juliet begin a hilariously raucous and dramatic semester, full of well-versed suitors and lively literary seminars. But soon their competitive amorous and academic pursuits lead them beyond innocent flirtations, and life becomes extravagantly complicated – perhaps too much so for the irrepressible Taylor twins to handle on their own. Juno & Juliet is a page-turner of a novel, full of laughs and optimistic wisdom. It is a novel about how happily astonishing ordinary life can be, how epic everyday events can feel, how the loves and passions pursued the most fervently can lead to the situations and feelings we’re least prepared for. And it is a novel that introduces Julian Gough as Ireland’s newest fresh and irresistible voice.… (més)

I picked it up because I was a fan of the author's former band, and I saw the novel was based in Galway, but I delighted to find it a really enjoyable novel and the fact that I recognised some of the places in the novel only added more to the joy of the novel. ( )

But a lot of the time there's no reason. We just flew it to the ground. Because we felt like it. And we're still dangerous. And it could happen again anytime.

Mr. Gough was discovered in a Dalkey anthology of Best European Fiction. Our public library had this and I read it in an evening. The characters remain undercooked and the plot unfolds predictably. That said, it offers laughs and charm. One could expect bigger projects in Mr. Gough's future. ( )

The voice of this book belongs to Juliet Taylor, an 18-year-old girl who begins to tell the story of her twin sister, Juno, which unavoidably becomes her own tale. The setting is Galway where the Irish girls are away for their first year of college. This is their story of coming into their own as individuals, and about family, love, betrayal, and hope. There is also a tiny bit of suspense in this book, although I hesitate to go that far. I was hooked right from the start; Julian Gough brought his characters to life through the narrative given by Juliet and through their many experiences. Although a light book in many respects, heavy topics were dealt with, including drugs, death, and love. The ending could have many interpretations and I was left unsatisfied with how it turned out, perhaps disturbed is a better word (referring to the ending of the “suspense,” not the final chapter). Overall however, I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others. ( )
