Gender roles in Ann Leckie's Imperial Radch i Science Fiction Fans (december 2016)

Anmeldelser

While I love Leckie’s Ancillary trilogy (I know, not its official name), I was a bit hesitant about this one. From what I’d seen of the Presger Translators, I wasn’t sure they were the sorts of characters I’d be comfortable getting up close with.

This novel follows three different characters, and I quickly became invested, wondering and anticipating how these three storylines would collide with each other. Enae, fifty-six, after decades of keeping house for hir late Grandmaman, is offered an unexpected job with travel opportunities, tracking down a fugitive who disappeared 200 years ago. Reet, thirty-one, who was adopted in infancy and works in maintenance on a space station, is approached by a group who claim to have solved the mystery of his genetic heritage. And Qven is a young person who describes their upbringing and their increasing desire to avoid the future expected of them.
This is what the Teachers tell you: when you exit into the World, you’ll take the place you’ve been prepared for since birth, each of us chosen for our suitability, without reference to favouritism or any sort of partiality. Each role is necessary and noble, part of our great work, and we will all be happy and fulfilled.
It’s all a lie.

This novel is successful on multiple levels: as a compelling and satisfying mystery; as an addition to the Imperial Radch universe (well, the universe beyond the Radch); and as a story I was comfortable reading.

Yes, parts of Qven’s story made me squeamish, and while I’m not sure it helped that manner Qven talks about those things is offhand and often also ambiguous -- on one hand I very much appreciate the absence of gory descriptions, on the other hand there’s something disturbing about Qven’s matter-of-fact acceptance of such things -- it did help that Qven finds other aspects of their circumstances disturbing. So rather than focusing on details which bothered me, I empathised with Qven’s goal of wanting to escape and focused on that. (I think it is interesting to consider the ways in which Qven is and isn’t like a teen protagonist in a dystopia, questioning their beliefs about their society and the world.) And I like that Leckie is very concerned with her characters’ emotional wellbeing.

Kirkus Reviews apparently calls this as Another of Leckie’s beautiful mergings of the political, philosophical, and personal, which strikes me as an apt summary (and also, satisfyingly alliterative).

Loved this and, as always, wish I was better at reviews. I have Ancillary Justice on my to-read list but came across Provenance on the new book shelf at my library in the same library system the author calls out in her acknowledgements! We do have a wonderful library system in St. Louis.

I love a good manners book, and Provenance is a manners book with more than one twist. I enjoyed the cultures butting against each other, and a hero struggling to determine what's right for her, her family, her friends, her culture, and others--and what choices to make when these conflict. Looking forward to reading the Imperial Radch series.… (mere)

Ancillary Justice reminded me very much to old science fiction, particularly Iain M. Banks' novels. It is not my favorite kind of sci-fi. There is too much Deus Ex Machina for my taste and the characters are almost iconic representations of its stereotype.

Some ideas of the novel were interesting, but most were puerile. While reading it, I thought it was a Young Adult book and I was surprised to see it as winner of the Hugo and the Nebula, no less. It is entertaining but I would not recommend it to my friends.… (mere)
