Review of 'Ancillary Justice' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

I picked this book after it won the Hugo. I was expecting good things, considering that it won over Wheel of Time, but wasn't expecting it to be this good.

This book would have been notable if only it were for the little things:

- The protagonist of the book is a spaceship.
- Everyone's a she (in speaking)
- War crimes, phiolosophy
- Omniscient AI's POV

But it really raises the stakes by actually pulling it off. The story never breaks, the plot is excellent, the characters sympathetic, and the world-building is amongst the best.

Will be re-reading, for sure.

If you're a SciFi fan, or love the foundation, do try this.
