packetcat reads 2022 Week 15 – Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie

Pages: 432
Purchased from: Kobo

This book feels like a spiritual predecessor to A Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine which is quite possibly one of my most favourite sci-fi books of all time. This book deals with the themes of colonialism/imperialism, identity and empire just like Martine’s book does. The books are obviously not 1-to-1 copies but if you liked Martine’s book you really should check this one out.

I found the way the book deal with the concept of split personalities particularly interesting. I am very curious how the concept is further developed in the sequels to this which I have added to my wishlist.
