Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie “If you’re going to make a desperate, hopeless act of defiance you should make it a good one.” Given its many accolades, I thought it would be impossible for Ancillary Justice to live up to its reputation. It surpassed it.It's a little hard to describe Ancillary Jus...

I enjoyed Ancillary Justice quite a lot, although not as much as the hype made me think I would (which is, obviously, not the book's fault). The book follows Breq, a character who used to be the Justice of Toren, an enormous space warship with thousands of ancillaries, human bodies robbed of perso...
Nothing better than a good book...
Author: Ann Leckie Rating: 3.5 stars Overall, not bad. The back and forth about gender was definitely confusing and I was never able to just let it go and enjoy the story like I wanted. I enjoyed the mystery and piecing it all together but I have to admit, I also wasn't a fan of the back and ...

I've been a science fiction addict since I learned to read and I've rarely read science fiction as breathtakingly good as "Ancillary Justice" by Ann Leckie. Clearly, I'm not alone in this view, "Ancilliary Justice" won just about every prize there is: Hugo Award for Best Novel (2014), Nebula Awar...

I do not have the energy to properly write a review, but I am so grateful for this book and how it explores gender. From the perspective of someone who is very into linguistics, and from the perspective of someone who is transgender and gay, this book is so amazing in how it touches on all of these ...

This was a buddy read with Familiar Diversions. And it was fun! While this book was, in my opinion, highly flawed, I understand why it won awards, and I understand why it's so beloved. It also succeeds massively on a couple different levels. Why the five stars? The things that it does well,...
Grac's Never-ending TBR Pile of Doom
Since I'm currently doing the Booklikes Reading Challenge, as well as waiting on the arrival of my copy of Ancillary Mercy (the book that finishes this trilogy), I thought I would kill two birds with one stone by re-reading the previous two before it arrives, which will also mean that Ancillary Merc...

I wanted to like this book more but, really some parts felt like I was reading a word salad. Like the descriptions always wanted you to read into them and, I'm not really good at that sometimes. Also it has the "Too Much Too Fast" disease where it's tossing names at you left and right and expecting ...

I´m not an avid reader of Science Fiction but when I do read a Science Fiction book, I´m always glad if it strikes a chord with me. And Ann Leckie´s Ancillary Justice certainly made an impression on me. The first half of the book the chapters are alternating between the present day, where Breq is ...

I didn’t like this book. I know it’s won a ton of prestigious awards and has many glorious reviews, so my negative opinion isn’t likely to damage its reputation. That’s why I feel free to rant. Here is what I didn’t like and why. The story structure The story is told in two timelines simultaneousl...
