[ Books ] 'Ancillary Justice' by Ann Leckie (goodreads)

This was the book set for this month's meeting of bibliogoth.

Ancillary Justice (Imperial Radch, #1)Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I liked the book quite a bit. Was initially confused about several aspects of the narration -which I think was intentional: the vague situation regarding the nature of the first person narrator (which does eventually become clear) and the gender of the various characters, which is never quite defined -you do get used to this. I had more difficulty with the characterisation -I seldom felt these were believably real, living people, only in most cases just devices to move the story forward.

The world in which the story is set feels a lot like Iain Banks' The Culture gone very, very wrong.
