    MOBI Jo Walton µ µ The Just City PDF Ô The Just Kindle - just pdf, city pdf, The Just epub, The Just City PDF/EPUBReviewed by Rabid Reads35 starsTHE JUST CITY by Jo Walton is one of the strangest books I've read in long timeThe premise is fascinating the Greek pantheon exists outside of time meaning the gods can move through it fluidly They can also snatch humans out of their various centuries and dump them in a time and place of their choosingPallas Athene does exactly this answering the prayers of intellectuals from as far in the future as the twentieth century and as far in the past as to be contemporaries of the Greek philosophers and gathered together on the island destined to become known as Atlantis they begin their experiment to create Plato's REPUBLIC It's told from three alternating perspectives Maia a Victorian woman who chaffed under the restrictions of her society Simmea an uncommonly bright but plain in appearance female student and Pytheas also know as Apollo who gave up his go

    MOBI Jo Walton µ µ The Just City PDF Ô The Just Kindle - just pdf, city pdf, The Just epub, The Just City PDF/EPUBAnother GR commenter suggested the Thessaly series and I was enthusiastic to give it a shot The story is a fantasy about Athena and Apollo creating Plato’s Republic in pre 1600 BC Thira currently the Greek Cycladic island Santorini The concept was interesting but I didn’t bond with many of the characters There was a feminist bent to the story in

    MOBI Jo Walton µ µ The Just City PDF Ô The Just Kindle - just pdf, city pdf, The Just epub, The Just City PDF/EPUB25 – 3 starsI’m not uite sure what it was about this book that didn’t uite gel for me but while I appreciate the scope of what Walton attempted I wasn’t super impressed by the results The basic premise is that Apollo and Athene decide to pick an out of the way island in a backwater of the timestream and attempt to build Plato’s Republic in a way that is both free from outside obstructions and which will not unduly affect the course of history To this end Athene cherry picks thinkers and philosophers from throughout time who have apparently prayed to her asking to be able to make the Republic real in order to act as the ‘Masters’ of the Republic and the architects of its initial set up First nit pick I found it a bit strange that she was able to find so many people that fit this criteria even well into and beyond the modern age I can see there being thinkers desirous of putting Plato’s theories to the acid test but that they all also specifically prayed to Athene

    MOBI Jo Walton µ µ The Just City PDF Ô The Just Kindle - just pdf, city pdf, The Just epub, The Just City PDF/EPUBI needed a second reading to begin to articulate why I love this book so much Walton does something different with every story arc sometimes writing stand alone novels Lifelode Tooth and Claw Among Others and sometimes series Farthing series and her Arthurian in another world series The Just City is the beginning of a series coming to an abrupt stopping place after a climactic debateOne thing I appreciated on this second reading was the book's structure I seldom notice such things as I am visually oriented and so my reading tends to immerse me inside the world as if watching a movie I am aware of emotional arcs like com
