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.

    Mørkets venstre hånd af 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.… (mere)

    All Systems Red af Martha Wells (chlorine)
    chlorine: Main protagonists are at least somewhat AI, and both books have a neutral take on gender.
  3. 50
    A Memory Called Empire af Arkady Martine (g33kgrrl)
    g33kgrrl: Both books feature complex, political space sci-fi with amazing characters and world-building.
  4. 40
    Ghost Spin af 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.
  5. 30
    Ring of Swords af 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.
  6. 30
    The Ship Who Sang af Anne McCaffrey (RidgewayGirl)
    RidgewayGirl: Utterly different in tone, this also features the "mind" of a ship and the people she interacts with.
  7. 30
    A Matter of Oaths af 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.… (mere)
  8. 30
    Foreigner af C. J. Cherryh (sandstone78)
    sandstone78: Leckie has said that Cherryh's Foreigner books were a big influence on Ancillary Justice and sequels
  9. 41
    Embassytown af China Miéville (electronicmemory)
  10. 20
    A Fire upon the Deep af Vernor Vinge (electronicmemory)
  11. 31
    The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet af Becky Chambers (souloftherose)
    souloftherose: Both are optimistic space operas that focus on the characters and their relationships.
  12. 20
    Fool's War af Sarah Zettel (Dilara86)
    Dilara86: Sentient AIs and spaceships
  13. 10

  14. 10
    Ninefox Gambit af Yoon Ha Lee (souloftherose)
  15. 10
    Hexwood af Diana Wynne Jones (CelestiaJK)
    CelestiaJK: Both have interesting AI themes and a great understanding of human nature.

Que maravilla de ciencia ficción. Una inteligencia artificial tan extensa, con capacidad para controlar miles de cuerpos, atrapada en un cuerpo individual. Una galaxia dominada por un imperio extenso y a veces cruel.

Al principio quiza cuesta hacerse con el mundo, pero a medida que lo vas leyendo se hace cada vez más disfrutable e intenso. Me ha enganchado, sobretodo pasado el ecuador del libro. Voy a tener que correr a por el siguiente de la trilogia. ( )

I bought this because it won the 2014 Hugo for Best Novel, and I can see why! Leckie has performed a marvelous feat of world- and culture-building in this novel.

There is one aspect of this, though, that took some getting used to. In the main culture of the story, they don't make any gender distinction: even though there are biological sexes, everyone is referred to as "she" and "her". There are hints in the narration that indicate which sex some of the characters are; but it is hard to get and hold a mental image of the character, especially when at 20% of the way through the story you find that someone is biologically male and you didn't know until then.

Still, I was going to immediately purchase the sequel. But it isn't available yet. (Soon, though...) ( )

First thing I read about this book was how it was refreshingly interesting because of the specific use of gender and gender point of view (which makes me think that people did not read David Weber). This always puts it in perspective of the times when book is published and to be honest it made me think long before starting to read it. Might be me but whenever people start to worship things because of current political and social climate it puts me off.

So eventually I took it and I have to say this is quite a book. To make things clear from the start - if you find Ghost in the Shell anime/manga to be confusing this book will confuse you to the core. This is the world where large space battleship AIs control what today would be called zombies - enslaved people conquered by the Imperium of the Radch put under direct control of the AI used as ground troops wearing advanced weaponry and benefiting from AI overall control and much faster reflexes.

Heh, I can bet you have completely forgotten what I said first - enslaved people used as puppets by the AI to pursue the goals of the Imperium.

And this is where book shines (when you get through the initial puzzlement with who is who and how many are there of each). Imperium of Radch is not unlike the Melnibone from Moorcock's stories of Elric. It is not benevolent empire - it spreads through the stars, annexing the other worlds, putting them to torch and deleting all life when it feels like, all under the command of the Empress, one and only and forever living, mighty avatar of the Shiva equivalent in Radch's religion. Those lucky to survive get assimilated into Radch society, society without privacy, under constant monitoring and control of every individual. What author portrays is very interesting role religion plays in this process. You see Radch are not atheists (which is usually case in SF operas of this kind) but people worshiping rather large pantheon and connection between the newly annexed societies and Radch Imperium is quickly established because (like polytheistic people from ancient times in our age) these religions are not exclusive - it is very easy to reconcile the differences because all deities are portrayed in every society in a more or less same way. Of course, as is case with every conquering force, Radch see themselves as force of enlightenment that bring prosperity to those they crush (which then makes W40K Empire of Man human rights organization). There are benefits but it is somewhat difficult to survive such a benevolence and get into position to profit from it.

For the Radch government newly conquered population is just batch of new subjects that sometimes need additional purge through pretty sneaky and merciless intrigue (very much W40K Inquisitor style)- and this is what happens on a remote world where annexation goes wrong and soon all witnesses need to be eradicated. All but a single person, who is not person at all but one of the zombies controlled by and inhabited by battleship AI, that feels betrayed and decides to take its vengeance. Of course being an only remnant of the once huge hive-like mind of the battleship this causes quite an identity crisis.

So as you can see there is much much more to this book than gender. And when it comes to gender for me it shows only megalomania of the Empress herself and her role as an avatar of ruling goddess of the Radch official pantheon (just replace He with She in sentence 'pronoun created world to pronoun liking'). Similar to other stories of this type (W40K again) Empress is an enigmatic person and question remains is she, after that many millennia, still human (although to be honest in Asher's novels all Radch would be treated as post-human).

Nevertheless very interesting presentation of communication between completely different cultures (another book with similar subject, "Left Hand of Darkness" is on my TBR list, cannot wait for it).

This is very interesting books, lots of concepts, with anti-heroes playing role of heroes.

If you like space opera with plenty of twists. can keep up with AI caprices and enjoy darker stories like Glen Cook's Black Company or Moorcock's stories you will enjoy this one.

Recommended. ( )

This is solidly one of the best space books. I loved the borg-type ancillary systems, I loved the Roman Empire Style Space expansion. The writing and plot were all solid. I loved the critical analysis of social issues. ( )

Story: 4 / 10
Characters: 9
Setting: 6
Prose: 6

Really impressive concept. Sadly, not a very good delivery. The plot doesn't develop until well over halfway through, which leaves the story wandering aimlessly.
