Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ancillary Justice: THE HUGO, NEBULA AND ARTHUR C. CLARKE AWARD WINNER (Imperial Radch Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Was pleasantly surprised by this novel, which starts in conventional space opera territory, but then goes off in expected directions to explore the ethics and mores of empire, gender, warfare and class. And tea drinking.
It also uses some quite startling narrative devices to explore the experience of reality for a protagonist who (at one point in her/its existence) could experience the world through multiple human bodies at once.
Most impressive of all is that this is a debut novel, and the first in a trilogy that left me eagerly anticipating the second volume due later this year!
