summary Ancillary Justice

Ancillary Justice review à 3 Rship with an artificial intelligence linking thousands of soldiers in the service of the Radch the empire that conuered the galaxyNow a. Unexpected When I started this book I thought I was looking at a 3 to 4 star book Even by halfway I was still thinking 4 stars at the most But really it was always going to be a five star book and it took me to the 80% mark to grudgingly acknowledge this deserves a five star I say grudgingly because this book is not my usual cup of tea Call me shallow and infantile but generally speaking I like my space operas to have lots of space battles lots of fightingbattle scenes with a plethora of pew pew and viscera with smoldering slag in the aftermath I like my protagonists to have a sense of self assured cool about them Instead of cool I got ethereal and still a bit of cool Instead of the hero that shoots from the hip while watching a multitude of alien heads go pop pop pop this protagonist sings WHA How does singing dancing Broadway wannabe beat scary but cool tough guy with big gun that makes pew pew noises Well for a start there s no dancing but importantly our protagonist is a spaceship AI Further not only does our protagonist inhabit a warship but it also inhabits thousands of corpse soldiers or ancillaries human bodies that are reanimated and incorporated into the single consciousness of the ship THATS FREAKING INSANE And when this machine intelligence thousands of years old sings through her multiple human voices everybody listens That s the ethereal part and it s pretty cool as well That s not to say there is no violence but Leckie uses it sparingly and though it may not be as gratuitous and visceral as I generally like it really didn t need to be When Ann Leckie does violence she times it for maximum punch and impactLeckie also does a good job of communicating what a multi bodied intelligence would feel like from a first person perspective The story is told from the POV of the ship Justice of Toren mostly from the perspective of her human bodies So you have a first person POV that is not limited to a single perspective and often does the job of an omniscient perspective and in a single coherent passage we can get multiple conversations and activity through bodies that are separated by distance all alongside the perspective of an intelligent warship operating and monitoring from orbit We also get those instances where one body will be doing something from the first person POV while a separate body is watching from a distance also still within the same first person POVThe other mind bending concept in this book is that the Radchaai the culture our ship AI belongs to don t emphasize gender and they use gender neutral pronouns Leckie opted to use She as the English proxy for the Radchaai gender neutral pronoun so as a conseuence the protagonist s narrative voice always uses she regardless of whether referring to male or female Also the ship AI has trouble identifying gender and is constantly misgendering characters who are non Radchaai and often uses the wrong pronoun still usually she until corrected This left me with a few Oh moments when discovering characters I thought were female were actually male There are still some characters in the book that I m not sure about not that it matters But I found that fun rather than confusing I also like how Leckie gradually opens up what turns out to be a complex universe with complex cultures and concepts without info dump or spoon feeding This means there is a little disorientation at the beginning but the process of discovery as the book progresses makes it all worthwhile and very cool Plenty of Aha momentsMind spinning concepts aside this is very much a space opera set in a universe which features galaxy spanning Empires in a Universe where Earth is long lost to memory The story was interesting the pacing perfect and the concepts were well executed with plenty of meat for contemplating the nature of consciousness freewill and what it means to be humanThis is the first book in what is to be a series It can be read standalone but it has definitely wet my appetite for the next installment All of my various segments with one mind and voice rate this5 stars The Rapids of a Great River really it was always going to be a five star book and it took me to
