Inhaltsangabe

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.

Kritikerstimmen

"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)

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.

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.

good and intriguing story.

good and intriguing story. minus one point for being somewhat slow and for confusing "she"/"her" everywhere

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.

Great female Science Fiction author

Interesting story with unusual protagonist. Social standing and interaction form the backbone of this book.

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.
