Beyond the Labyrinth" is a refreshingly intelligent book for teenagers, offering much to both strong and reluctant readers alike. Dealing with "the big issues" of environmental disaster, family disharmony, third world poverty, death and sexuality, Rubinstein offers a heady mix of realism and science fiction. When her teenage protagonists meet an androgynous alien named Cal, they are offered a new, apparently objective view of human life.

Reviews about Beyond the Labyrinth (2):
Iphonedivorced
This is a coming of age story for a group of Australian kids, one of whom is interested in the mechanical nature of fate as embodied by throwing a die to make decisions. This adds an interesting twist to the story, because it's difficult to predict where the action might be going. The style is very direct and unadorned, almost like a reality show. There's a lot of teen dialog as they work through an unusual encounter.

Banal
"Beyond the Labyrinth" is a refreshingly intelligent book for teenagers, offering much to both strong and reluctant readers alike.
Dealing with "the big issues" of environmental disaster, family disharmony, third world poverty, death and sexuality, Rubinstein offers a heady mix of realism and science fiction.
When her teenage protagonists meet an androgynous alien named Cal, they are offered a new, apparently objective view of human life. This encourages the reader to question notions of gender identity as well as bringing racial prejudices and family dynamics to the fore.
"Beyond the Labryinth" allows for an unusual level of reader interaction with the text. In "Choose Your Own Adventure" style, the reader is asked to throw the dice in order to choose one of two seperate endings. This is an engaging tactic which helps to draw the teenage reader in, at the same time allowing for a greater complexity of meaning.
"Beyond the Labyrinth" is a rewarding read from one of Australia's finest writers for young people. It raises interesting questions for teenage readers and their parents alike.
