Book Review

MICROPOST: Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie

tiny review of a space opera that's perfect for a holiday read

April 24th, 2022

Space opera.

Big stakes, the fate of the universe etc

ancillary justice about a multi-bodied AI that has been constructed to control the entirety of a spaceship and its crew, but has ended up with only one body left.

the novel is about becoming human, about competing ideologies (i.e. constant expansion & growth vs the pursuit of equity and stasis), so tho it could probably be read by an idiot as a pretty straightforward space story, it has enough going on to be engaging to a reader as demanding, as arrogant and as dismissive as me.

I enjoyed it a lot! Very exciting, very fun, another great holiday read for my European holiday!
