    One thought on “Die Maschinen”

    1. This book caught my eye mostly because it's been winning just about every award ever this year. So I picked it up when I was on tour. And as soon as I started it, I could see why it was getting such attention. It's exceptionally well-written. I was almost immediately pulled in. I should mention here, it's Science Fiction. I don't review much sci-fi these days because I mostly read fantasy. For the most part, what's where my taste lies these days. But that wasn't always the case. When I was young [...]

    2. Unexpected. When I started this book I thought I was looking at a 3 to 4 star book. Even by halfway I was still thinking 4 stars at the most. But really, it was always going to be a five star book and it took me to the 80% mark to grudgingly acknowledge this deserves a five star. I say grudgingly because this book is not my usual cup of tea. Call me shallow and infantile but generally speaking, I like my space operas to have lots of space battles, lots of fighting/battle scenes with a plethora o [...]

    3. Ann Leckie's series drops us right into a universe both familiar and terrifyingly different. It may take you a while to understand what is going on, because many of your assumptions about point-of-view will be stripped away. This is because the main character Breq is an ancillary -- a human body that has been 'slaved' to the artificial intelligence of a giant spaceship, in this case Justice of Torren. In the empire called the Radch, each spaceship is sentient, crewed by legions of ancillaries wh [...]

    4. Most of my friends are married now and have 1 or 2 kids. I like kids, but once in a while you meet one of those kids that everyone adores and that is very clever and friendly, but for some reason I simply don't get along with that particular kid. Unfortunately, for me "Ancillary Justice" is that kid.In "Ancillary Justice" we're following 2 plot lines for most of the novel. In the present storyline we follow Breq, the last physical manifestation of the ship "Justice of Toren's" complex AI. In the [...]

    5. I'm almost wanting to give this five stars, because I LOVED it, but the first section of the book is very confusing ( in some ways by choice) and I think that could put some people off so there you go. 4 1/2 stars, ha!This is a great sci-fi adventure following a character who is not man nor woman, and don't even try to figure it out, that's the confusing part. But the character is fomerly HUNDREDS of people, and a spaceship. All at once. Yeah, ok once you can wrap that around your head, it's SO [...]

    6. Things I liked about ANCILLARY JUSTICE: a list- Everyone is she (not everyone is actually she)- The protagonist is a SPACESHIP- There is a scene where a space station is mad at the protagonist and the space station throws a tantrum and a spaceship who likes the protagonist is like, “omg space station is such a jerk” and it is super cute omg- A spaceship with FEELINGS- People are hostile and angry at each other but then they become friends and then they are super LOYAL AND DEVOTED- The spaces [...]

    7. This really seems to be a case of a bandwagon gone insane. I was looking forward to this book after seeing very high recommendations from a lot of high-profile people: Veronica Belmont, John Scalzi (I think?), Felicia Day, NPR books, I know I am forgetting more and nearly every review here is five stars. How could I not love this one? Well, recently, I have discovered that I am really not fitting in with the mainstream. I have had terrible luck lately with ridiculously popular books and Ancillar [...]

    8. NOTE: I feel bad changing my rating and my review after so many people have liked this review, but one of the commenters below convinced me that the central arguments I made in my original 2-star review were invalid. And, at risk of breaking the entire Internet, I decided to listen to a reasonable argument and evidence and consider changing my mind. In addition, I decided to reread (listen to, actually) the book in preparation for reading the sequel Ancillary Sword as my due diligence as a 2015 [...]

    9. Standing on the shoulders of giants, author Anne Leckie has produced a mature, post-modern sci-fi gem.Coming out of the gates with her debut novel, but with a lifetime of science fiction knowledge building and percolating up to the top, Leckie hit a home run and, more accurately, won the science fiction triple crown by grabbing the Hugo, the Nebula, and the Arthur C. Clarke, as well as a host of other awards and nominations.So what’s all the fuss about?Linking influences from Ursula Le Guin, F [...]

    10. I hope no one kills me because I know most of the people who read this really enjoyed it in the end. This is another one of my unpopular opinions, so bear with me as I try to explain what went wrong, for me.Every time I pick up a sci-fi novel, I always read the synopsis. I like my sci-fi brutal and heavy on battles and politics. It's the mixture of both that made me really like the genre to begin with. The premise of this novel didn't seem like it was going to offer no action at all till the end [...]

    11. Before reading Ancillary Sword (the 2nd book in the Imperial Radch Series), I decided to re-read Ancillary Justice, a thoroughly compelling space opera and debut novel from Ann Leckie. I enjoyed Leckie’s depiction of One Esk whose story is told over three different time periods spanning a thousand years. There are also different versions of One Esk, who is both the consciousness/sentience of the Radchaai spaceship, Justice of Toren, and ancillary versions of this ‘self.’ These points of vi [...]

    12. Chucked at 10%. I should have known better. How many times have I seen all those awards listed in a blurb and been suckered into trying a book?I'm just not doing it. Maybe it gets better, but no. I'm not getting trapped into losing a couple of months of my life because I'm determined to finish a China Miéville/Gene Wolfe-type experience. Maybe I'm not smart enough to grasp this genre.Or more likely, I just don't give a damn.

    13. OK, Ann Leckie owes my students an apology. I picked this book up at Barnes & Noble because I know Ann and wanted to help make sure she moved copies of the book early in its release, knowing full well that I don't have time to do any pleasure reading until the semester is over. Well, I made the mistake of flipping it open, and now I'm four days behind in my grading. And it's all this book's fault.Ann Leckie has a real gift for clarity which I admire greatly. This book should have been a mudd [...]

    14. This was the best sci-fi book I've read in a long time. It was one of those rare books that got the blend of ideas and story perfect. It made you think but also engaged and entertained. The premise of the story was a good one. On a remote icy planet a lone individual is closing in on the tools that will finally give them a shot at the vengeance they have longed for for nearly two decades. Any stranger would assume the women going by the name of Breq was ex-military. They would be right. What the [...]

    15. Never have I gone into a book with so much expectation to be utterly disappointed. I think that if I hadn't seen all the rave reviews and up talk about the story and I went in unencumbered with expectation, it might have, maybe got a 3 star. For being a bit different. The concept and idea is sound, it has had potential. Ship and her ancillaries soldiers, the political games and omnipotent tyrant. But it all fell very flat for me. I understand that part of the issue I have in the complete lack of [...]

    16. What's the point? Admittedly, science fiction isn't my favorite genre, but if you're looking for a novel with a concept that would be intriguing were it not the the novel's centerpiece, and completely unsupported by story - well, this is your book.Ancillary Justice is barely more than its concept. The slim plot unfolds oh so slowly over over hundreds of pages, and the book ends just as the conflict is starting to heat up. Characterization is no more than actions and memories, and the concept its [...]

    17. The pleasure I got from this far future tale from the perspective of an AI on a mission ripened over time. One reader friend found it missed some spark in the characters or emotional engagement that muted his satisfaction. But you have to expect an AI to fall short in endearing human characters. Thus, the mind bender for me was in how far I was led to identify with the hero as a fellow self up to a noble effort in life’s challenges. In the line of sci fi that makes you question what it means t [...]

    18. you know, one shuffles up and down the stacks at the bookstore and hopes each time that the next sf book one reads will:be well-writtenhave at least one character you care aboutbe well-plottedhave intelligent commentaryinclude some aliens who are really alien, or,include some humans who are not quite human andleave you with something really knotty to think abouttually finding one happens about once a year, and it feels like a gift from the gods this case it's a gift from Ann Leckie, whom i despe [...]

    19. I thought this had some really brilliant ideas that were cleverly executed. It's fantastically well written, particularly for a debut novel. It fell short of the five star mark for me because it just missed some element I can't quite put my finger on and I felt the ending didn't quite round off the way I would have liked it to. The ancillary concept is really awesome. It took a while to figure it out but I've always preferred the style of world building that lets the world come to life around th [...]

    20. Fantasy Review BarnA book picked up purely on the hype, I would have skipped it otherwise. The cover blurb sounds ridiculous, the main character used to be a ship? What could that even mean? But in came the early reviews. They talked about many different things but seemed pretty unanimous in one aspect; the book was praised everywhere I looked.But hype is a funny thing, and while it has often been enough to get me interested it just as often disappoints. Was this going to be one of those books i [...]

    21. 3.5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/201There are so many things I want to say about this debut novel by Ann Leckie, but first I just have to express my awe and admiration for some of the themes and concepts in this book. I went into Ancillary Justice after having heard a lot of praise for its originality and imaginative ideas, and now that I've finished it, I can only echo those sentiments.The book follows Breq, a soldier who is more (and, I suppose, also less) than she seems. An "Ancil [...]

    22. DNF @ 34%Whoops, it's my first DNF of the year. I WAS JUST SO BORED. RTC ---------------------Buddy Read with Courtney! Nothing like starting the new year off with a little sci-fi! 🤖👽

    23. I feel it in my fingersI feel it in my toesImperial Radch is all around meAnd so the feeling growsIt's written on the windIt's everywhere I go, oh yes it isSo if you really love meCome on and let me finish the damn trilogy!Silly, I know. Ok, adding some seriousness here just in case you're still reading and expecting me to come to my senses. This is a very good sci-fi story, with very interesting ideas and if plot drags on you a little bit in the beginning because of all "she/her" (literally) go [...]

    24. Rating: 3* of fiveThe Publisher Says: On a remote, icy planet, the soldier known as Breq is drawing closer to completing her quest.Once, she was the Justice of Toren - a colossal starship with an artificial intelligence linking thousands of soldiers in the service of the Radch, the empire that conquered the galaxy. Now, an act of treachery has ripped it all away, leaving her with one fragile human body, unanswered questions, and a burning desire for vengeance.I RECEIVED THIS BOOK FROM THE PUBLIS [...]

    25. This Hugo / Nebula / Clarke combo winner just demands to be read. I have been putting it off for a while on account of the price, new books cost more on the year of publication and I'm a skinflint. However, this book is just so damn hard to ignore. People keep going on about it in sf forums and now it is going to be a TV show! How am I going to keep up with the sci-fi Joneses if I don't read it?Allow me to ramble on for another paragraph, I have a theory about sci-fi books which are suitable for [...]

    26. If I had a shelf for space operas I would not place this on that. Everyone hails this as a groundbreaking and engrossing new space opera, but I have no idea why. I suppose the final chapter fits within that genre, but the story itself is really just a revenge tale set in a couple of different spots within a (galactic) empire. Space operas are romantic, dramatic, large scale, sometimes epic. The stakes are high as can be. Of course there are "anti space operas," but this novel is not that, and no [...]

    27. This was my third read of this book and I still love it. Original review below.This book was not at all what I expected and I'm really kind of glad about that. I was expecting space battles and conquest and things like that. What I got, to my absolute delight, was a character driven story about the surviving member of a multi-body AI - and her thirst for revenge. Which was awesome. The story flips back and forth between the present and the events that led up to the AI's current situation. I thou [...]

    28. A new favorite author? It could be! This is just exactly the kind of hard sci-fi that I like: it’s got the right balance of compelling, believable characters, serious examination of both theoretical and relevant social issues, and plenty of pure action with spaceships and blaster guns, all in an original and fascinating universe.I am so glad that my book club decided to read this, because the initial description of the book I’d read didn’t capture my imagination at all. Somehow, with the r [...]

    29. "Grab handgun, shoot tyran'", that's the novel's essence. It isn't that easy, of course: the tyrant as well as the protagonist is facetted in multiple alter egos, which forms the main idea. Ann Leckie is really inventive how to bring this concept to the reader. And the tyrant is specially armored, the story spans several time levels and interleaved point of views.My main problem: The novel simply didn't grab me at all - it was more urgent for me to cuddle my cat or do my tax than to read it. It [...]
