Latest re-listen finished
Ancillary Sword - Ann Leckie,Adjoa Andoh

Nothing much new that I can say about it. I still love Mercy of Kalr and the enormous mess that is Tisarwat. And Seivarden, although she's really not in this one much. I really like Adjoa Andoh as Breq, even though there are times when she puts more emotion into Breq's lines than the text itself says should be there. That's pretty much it.

 

Now, time to pick my next audiobook. I don't think I'm going to re-listen to Ancillary Mercy next, unless none of the other stuff in my collection appeals to me.

Relistening: 5 hours and 56 minutes in (a little over halfway)
Ancillary Sword - Ann Leckie,Adjoa Andoh

Time for the funeral/fasting, my least favorite part of the book. On the plus side, I generally like Adjoa Andoh's voice (in this book, pretty much everything but her voices for Raughd, Fosyf, and Dlique). That makes this especially slow part a little better. Still, I can't wait for Breq to get back to the station.

Relistening: 3 hours and 5 minutes in
Ancillary Sword - Ann Leckie,Adjoa Andoh

I'm relistening to this for the fourth time in the past three or so years. Yesterday the construction company that I have privately dubbed "Three Stooges Construction"* damaged something that affected internet access. I happened to have this audiobook downloaded to my phone already, so I didn't have to rely on streaming to listen to it.

 

Things seem faster today, but I'm already three hours in, so I'm just going to keep on listening to this.

 

* So far this particular company has caused a couple gas leaks and a surprise stream of water one afternoon. They also once cut off the electricity so thoroughly that everybody at my workplace got to go home for the day, although only after we waited for three or four hours for someone to decide it wasn't going to come back on.

Reading progress update: I've read 50%.
Ancillary Justice - Ann Leckie

This is not the book for me I think. It's just so dry and I could be intrigued (is that the word) by this book if the telling of everything was not a full march to the minutiae Olympics. The time jumping all over the place is confusing the ever loving mess out of me. 


The main character Breq (I misspelled that name like 10 damn times) is not doing a thing for me. I feel like I am reading about Odd Thomas here, though in science fiction, and now gender swapped. 

 

I also like that Leckie did something cool with regards to gender by having the way people use words telling you that is the way you can figure out someone's gender. But after the first ten times, I don't need it repeated. I get it, you have to be careful how you use words.

Not really, that 50 Shades review will be though. I don't see me giving this above 2 stars max at this point.

Reading progress update: I've read 33% of page 140
Ancillary Justice - Ann Leckie

I am still confused. Not really enjoying this one yet. Since so many of you like this I am going to keep sticking with it. But warning you now if I don't like it, prepare for me to read the next book in the 50 Shades of Grey series and live update/rage at you all day in the future.
