Standing on the shoulders of giants author Anne Leckie has produced a mature post modern sci fi gemComing out of the gates with her debut novel but with a lifetime of science fiction knowledge building and percolating up to the top Leckie hit a home run and accurately won the science fiction triple crown by grabbing the Hugo the Nebula and the Arthur C Clarke as well as a host of other awards and nominationsSo what s all the fuss aboutLinking influences from Ursula Le Guin Frank Herbert Andre Norton Isaac Asimov Robert A Heinlein and John Varley Leckie has produced a future classic that could not have been produced 40 years ago Ancillary Justice is in many respects the culmination of decades of science fiction evolutionLike Poul Anderson Leckie began with a great concept a uniue confluence of great ideas that work together to build a powerful whole Leckie describes centuries old AI technology that links spaceships and individual units ancillaries together Further these AI conciousnesses can operate together or in psychological civil war to rule over a galactic empire headed by a tyrannical and aristocratic hierarchical system Akin to Star Trek s The Borg civilizations can get annexed into the larger whole and assimilated resistance is futileModern novels like China Mieville s Embassytown and Alastair Reynolds The Prefect come closest to a similar world building masterwork like what Leckie has accomplished Like David Weber s Safehold series Leckie has woven a detailed tapestry of a fictional universe that breathes with its own life and presents the reader with a wealth of uestions to be answeredNot an especially easy read her gender neutral narrative and alien cultural design can be difficult to follow it is nonetheless a breathtakingly ambitious project that satisfies and entertains

Most of my friends are married now and have 1 or 2 kids I like kids but once in a while you meet one of those kids that everyone adores and that is very clever and friendly but for some reason I simply don t get along with that particular kid Unfortunately for me Ancillary Justice is that kidIn Ancillary Justice we re following 2 plot lines for most of the novel In the present storyline we follow Bre the last physical manifestation of the ship Justice of Toren s complex AI In the Radch empire ships are sentient and control a multitude of physical bodies called ancillaries After the destruction of her ship Bre is on a uest to get justice for said destructionThis storyline alternates with a second narrative set 19 years in the past and explains what led to the destruction of the shipWhat makes the novel uniue and is in my opinion the main reason for its huge success among critics are 3 stylistic elementsThe one most talked about is an element of the language of the Radch cause their language only knows one grammatical gender The Radch and therefore Bre refer to everyone as she So one of the main novelties of the book is that for some characters you ll have to figure out and decide on your own if a character is male or femaleThe second uniue element is the ship s ability to communicate with multiple persons in various places at the same time due to her omnipresence onboard and use of an army of ancillaries on the groundSo there are some discussions where the ship speaks with multiple persons at the same time and the conversations overlap But this is done without being too messy mostly only two conversations happen at the same time and the effect is not overusedThe third uniue element is of course Bre herself cause she is not human To emphasize this effect the prose feels very cold and distancedFrom my point of view the success of the novel for each reader depends on how much you are personally fascinated by the uniueness of those elements cause frankly the novel doesn t offer much beyond these elementsDue to the cold and distanced prose I was never really engaged in the novel It s like having someone show you an abstract painting of 5 triangles and explaining that those triangles represent something really clever My head may appreciate the explanation but all I really see are 5 rather boring triangles As you might see I m not a very artsy personAnd as a former philosophy student who did a few courses of philosophy of language the idea of the singular grammatical gender was one I could wrap my head around pretty uickly cause we did some very similar experiments with language and so the effect on me was not as fascinating as I hoped it would beSo to bring a little Freud into the discussion my Super Ego was able to appreciate Anne Leckie s efforts in creating a uniue experience but my Id was frankly bored to death by the novelIt s major weakness in my opinion is the lack of an engaging plot The main narrative stands still for most of the novel and has to wait until the past storyline catches upThere are multiple chapters in an abandoned hut where the characters do a lot of sitting eating and sleeping and the narrative only painfully crawls forward The second storyline in the past is far interesting in my opinion and especially the last chapters set onboard the Justice of Toren were my personal highlightUnfortunately the last third of the novel then just stays with the first narrative and comes to a conclusion I wasn t interested in and felt highly constructedThe second thing that didn t work for me at all were the characters Beside maybe from Lt Awn in the second storyline I wasn t able to connect with a single character least of all with the main character Bre and her constant inconsistencies in character In one chapter she s very cold and distanced in the next she shows a lot of human emotion that seemed uncalled for I don t know if Leckie wanted to achieve the feeling of a character torn between humanity and rationality but this conflict is a rather over used trope of SF and many other authors did it better in my opinionAnother character that drove me mad is Seivarden a Radch Bre takes care of in the main plotline His integration is a borderline offence to my intelligence as a readerHe is a mere plot device for Bre to achive something at the end of the book and it feels that this is his only purpose To make him not that obvious a deus ex machina element Leckie just lets Bre literally stumble over him in the first chapter Then of course he has no use for 250 pages so the author decides to let him sleep for most of the time or be unconscious To create the illusion of depth she attaches a random drug issue for him of all the boring standard flaws the most unimaginative of them all that is never really addressed or taken seriously cause we all know that he s a plot device so why botherA thing I liked better was the world building The whole culture of the aggressive Radch with their devotion to religion and formality is really fascinating and some of the alien elements peaked my interestI personally would have enjoyed a bit in depth information because when Leckie does world building it was very interesting but most of the time we just get the information that we absolutely need to understand what s going onSo to make an already long review not even longer I m not blind to the intellectual merits of the novel and can understand why people praise the book for itBut for me personally the basics of the book especially plot and character didn t work out so unfortunately I can only say that this book was okay for me but nothing I really enjoyed
