Now isolated in a single frail human body, Breq, an artificial intelligence that used to control of a massive starship and its crew of soldiers, tries to adjust to her new humanity while seeking vengeance and answers to her questions.
  1. 81
    The Left Hand of Darkness de Ursula K. Le Guin (lquilter)
    lquilter: Fans of either Le Guin's Left Hand of Darkness or Leckie's Ancillary Justice should enjoy the other. In common, the pacing, character-centered perspective obscuring aspects of the universe, political machinations, far-future setting, and treatment of ethics; also interesting for its simultaneous foregrounding and backgrounding of gender.… (més)

    Ghost Spin de Chris Moriarty (libron)
    libron: Ancillary Justice is great - but for a nuanced, riveting treatment of AI, Moriarty has her beat, hands down. I hope to see more rigorous explorations in future of what Leckie has limned in her first outing.
  3. 40
    Embassytown de China Miéville (electronicmemory)
  4. 30
    A Memory Called Empire de Arkady Martine (g33kgrrl)
    g33kgrrl: Both books feature complex, political space sci-fi with amazing characters and world-building.
  5. 30
    All Systems Red de Martha Wells (chlorine)
    chlorine: Main protagonists are at least somewhat AI, and both books have a neutral take on gender.
  6. 30
    Foreigner de C. J. Cherryh (sandstone78)
    sandstone78: Leckie has said that Cherryh's Foreigner books were a big influence on Ancillary Justice and sequels
  7. 30
    Ring of Swords de Eleanor Arnason (libron)
    libron: Arnason's depiction of an alternative (alien) gender/social structure is awesome. I hope Leckie can flesh her own ideas out further beyond pronoun ambiguity in forthcoming books.
  8. 20
    The Ship Who Sang de Anne McCaffrey (RidgewayGirl)
    RidgewayGirl: Utterly different in tone, this also features the "mind" of a ship and the people she interacts with.
  9. 20
    A Fire upon the Deep de Vernor Vinge (electronicmemory)
  10. 20
    Fool's War de Sarah Zettel (Dilara86)
    Dilara86: Sentient AIs and spaceships
  11. 20
    A Matter of Oaths de Helen S. Wright (sandstone78)
    sandstone78: Some of the dynamics in Leckie's Ancillary Justice remind me of the much more obscure single-volume space opera Wright's A Matter of Oaths about two warring immortal emperors and a protagonist with a mysterious connection to them- if you like one, you may like the other.… (més)
  12. 21
    The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet de Becky Chambers (souloftherose)
    souloftherose: Both are optimistic space operas that focus on the characters and their relationships.
  13. 00
    Hexwood de Diana Wynne Jones (CelestiaJK)
    CelestiaJK: Both have interesting AI themes and a great understanding of human nature.
  14. 00
    Worlds of Exile and Illusion: Three Complete Novels of the Hainish Series in One Volume--Rocannon's World; Planet of Exile; City of Illusions de Ursula K. Le Guin (sturlington)
  15. 00
    Leviathan Wakes de James S. A. Corey (g33kgrrl)
  16. 00
    Ninefox Gambit de Yoon Ha Lee (souloftherose)
  17. 00
    The Lazarus War: Artefact de Jamie Sawyer (dClauzel)

    Lock In de John Scalzi (sturlington)

This book sucked me in and took all my attention until I had finished. It was a difficult book, mostly because of its unique concept but also because the narration isn't at all chronological. So it took a lot of attention to follow it, but I felt it deserved that attention. It was that good.

I don't want to say anything else about it because it feels anything at all might spoil the joy of figuring the concept out as you go. Suffice it to say it's morally and emotionally and philosophically complex. It's like Margaret Atwood meets Isaac Asimov. And the writing itself is beautiful. If you don't mind a challenge, you won't be sorry. ( )

In a future where humans have colonized the galaxy and space ships have humans directly controlled by the ship AI as workers and soldiers we get to follow one person's story as she finds herself in that environment.

I say "she" because the civilization is socially single-gendered and the pronoun preferred is the female one regardless of biological gender.

The book reminds me of the Culture novels by [a:Ian M. Banks|8282782|Ian M. Banks|https://s.gr-assets.com/assets/nophoto/user/u_50x66-632230dc9882b4352d753eedf9396530.png] and that is a good thing. It started a bit complex where too much happened at once to easily form a picture of the events, but as things came together it became a "can't put it down" book. ( )

Really 2.5 ( )

This book was a little confused. The themes themselves were wonderful no doubt, but the entire plot left me wanting for a more mature writer's take. The climax was weirdly both straightfoward and confusing, unfortunately, as things fell into place as one thought they would, but in a hard to keep track of way. It was the sort of novel where the author knew the premise, and knew where she wanted to get to, and kind of filled in the rest as she went along.

That said, wow were the concepts in the book amazing. The millenium-living creatures were a fascinating thought experiment, the genderless norms were unique, if a little forced and overplayed, and the ancillary concept was played well, the author considering, where it helped her, exactly what an almost-human might do in a given situation.

All in all, this book was a 5/5 concepts, 2/5 plot, and 2/5 characterizations. ( )

Impressive.

Interesting play with gender pronouns. Shines the light on subtle and unconscious stereotyping and prejudices, based on gender. The default, in The Radtch, is "she". In some "backwater" planets, sexual gender identification is important, but in civilized lands, it's not.

Artificial Intelligence, corpse soldiers, an Emperor who can be many places at the same time, and a mission of vengeance that spans light-years.

I'm definitely interested in reading the further adventures of Justice of Toren... I mean One Esk. Or a new being, self-created... Either way, I'm definitely reading more.

Still facedown on the floor, Seivarden said, in a small voice, “Breq?”

“Not Breq,” said the Mianaai on the left. “Justice of Toren.”

“Justice of Toren One Esk,” I corrected, dropping all pretense of a Gerentate accent, or human expression. I was done pretending. It was terrifying, because I knew I couldn’t live long past this, but also, oddly, a relief. A weight gone. ( )

Surely it isn't illegal here to complain about young people these days? How cruel. I had thought it a basic part of human nature, one of the few universally practiced human customs.
