    Description

    The record-breaking debut novel that won every major science fiction award in 2014, Ancillary Justice is the story of a warship trapped in a human body and her search for revenge. 

    Ann Leckie is the first author to win the Arthur C. Clarke, the Nebula and the Hugo Award for Best Novel in the same year.

    They made me kill thousands, but I only have one target now.

    The Radch are conquerors to be feared - resist and they'll turn you into a 'corpse soldier' - one of an army of dead prisoners animated by a warship's AI mind. Whole planets are conquered by their own people.  

    The colossal warship called The Justice of Toren has been destroyed - but one ship-possessed soldier has escaped the devastation. Used to controlling thousands of hands, thousands of mouths, The Justice now has only two hands, and one mouth with which to tell her tale.  

    But one fragile, human body might just be enough to take revenge against those who destroyed her.

    The Imperial Radch trilogy begins with Ancillary Justice, continues in Ancillary Sword and concludes with Ancillary Mercy

    Also available now: Provenance is a stunning standalone adventure set in the same world as Ancillary Justice.

    Commentaires

    "Thrilling, moving and awe-inspiring." (Guardian)

    "Signals the arrival of a hard science fiction author who just might fill the gap left by Iain M. Banks. Ancillary Justice is a highly original novel...an intelligent slow-burner. Highly recommended." (Independent on Sunday)

    "You will be truly astounded at how Leckie has fully fleshed out a universe and is asking and attempting to answer the difficult questions that many authors never even address in science fiction." (Buzzfeed)

    "Unexpected, compelling and very cool - Ann Leckie nails it. I've never met a heroine like Breq before. I consider this a very good thing indeed." (John Scalzi, Hugo Award-winning author of Redshirts)

    Wish the narration was clearer

    Narration was very irritating. However story intrigued me and I bought it on Kindle. I am glad I did. Looking forward to reading next ones

    Fantastic!

    The sort of book you are excited to tell everyone you are reading. Complex and thought-provoking without sacrificing engaging plot. Could not stop listening. Narration was impeccable - great character voices and accents throughout. Added a sense of dry humour to the main character that really made her feel more "human". Highly recommended! I'm downloading the next one right now.

    Great exploration of AI ideas. Flat ending.

    What did you love best about Ancillary Justice?

    The idea of AI running facilities was great.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Orn, completely loyal to the end.

    Which character – as performed by Adjoa Andoh – was your favorite?

    Eskia (spelling). Great voice. So many African intonations.

    Overrated question mark

    Half way through I quit. Voice acting is unclear sometimes and I did not find story interesting. This book got so many awards, perhaps it is better in written format.

    This is an amazing story, very hard to not fall head over heels into. Narration is perfectly fitting to it.

    Didn't understand a thing

    Not a native speaker, I have listened to tens of English books of all types understanding with no problems.
    This book, I couldn't understand a thing.
    Not situations, not intentions, not conversations, not names, not character profiles, not even the few action scenes dynamics.
    Considering the amount of awards it got it is probably my fault.
    Unless you enjoy a book for the feeling of achievement that you can understand it, I would not recommend this one.

    The reader is great.

    Kampf der multipersonalen Persönlichkeiten

    Ich habe mir schwer getan mit dem Verständnis. Wahrscheinlich weil das Buch keinen Bezug zur Gegenwart und zur Erde herstellt und weil es hauptsächlich von den Gesprächen lebt die mir aber ziemlich genial vorgekommen sind. Das Buch ist in der Ego Perspektive geschrieben aus der Sicht eines Raumschiffs das mehrere Personen und so wie ich die Geschichte verstanden habe gehört die zu einer Art Besatzungsmacht und es geht um den Umgang untereinander und mit den Unterdrückten. Getötet wird hier als wäre es Kaffee kochen und man hat nicht einmal ein emotionales Problem damit. Die Hauptperson hat ein Faible für Lieder und Tee. Ausserdem spielt Religiosität eine Rolle. Die Sprecherin ist herausragend.

    Überraschend gut

    Man muss den Buch ein bisschen Zeit geben, der Start war für mich etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig.

    Nachdem man sich allerdings an den Stil und die Ideen gewohnt hat, wird man mit einem hervorragenden Stuck Science Fiction belohnt. Sehr zu empfehlen!

    Großartiger Auftakt zu einer Space Opera

    Das Hörbuch ist nicht nur inhaltlich und sprachlich sehr überzeugend, auch der Spannungsbogen, die Ego-Perspektive der Hauptprotagonistin sowie das Universum von Ancillary Justice erzeugen im Zusammenspiel eine feseelnde wie komplexe Geschichte.

    high class science fiction

    excellent reading/performance,
    most interesting character constellation and personality build up I've read/listened to in a long time. worth listening to from a philosophical perspective too and funny in it's own way.

    Good concept for a short story but not a novel.

    The idea of a protagonist that is an a.i. is not a novelty. The spaceship "Justice of Toren" once controlled multiple "corpse soldiers", bodies of conquered enemies without their individual mind. Gruesome but accepted in the "empire". While the a.i. protagonist is quite sophisticated in all sorts of fields with superhuman abilities, inculding different languages and dialects its "native" empire-language doesn't have pronouns discerning between the sexes, so everyone is reffered to as "she", which is perhaps a novelty? The story was very slow moving, sometimes revealing interesting bits of world/galactic-empire building. The protagonist is strange and sometimes dull, always with flat emotions - although in this universe a.i.'s are "programmed" to have emotions. The interest in seeing inside the inner monologue of an a.i. wears off quickly. The prose is good and the material would've been great for a short story, thought-provoking and interesting, but for me it is not enough for a novel, let alone a series of novels.
    The narrator did an ok job was mostly pleasant to listen to except in the singing parts but what can you do.

    Potential: ja . Umsetzung: naja

    Kann den Nebula Award echt nicht verstehen. Nette Idee, wirklich. Aber unfassbar langatmig umgesetzt. Auf Tempo 1.5 war es dann ok...
    Ok. Auftakt zu einer Serie. Aber ehrlich gesagt interessiert mich gar nicht mehr, wie es weitergeht.

    Annoying accents and slow pointless story

    Accents are terrible. The story lacks imagination and is bland and simplistic. A fractured AI (or multiples thereof) would not duplicate and behave in the way described.
