Title: Ancillary Justice
By: Leckie, Ann
Call #: Science Fiction Lecki.A
This book swept the major science fiction awards when it came out, winning the Hugo Award, Nebula Award, BSFA Award, Arthur C. Clarke Award and Locus Award – and all of them well-deserved. It’s a terrific concept, and executed to perfection. The world-building is comprehensive and engaging, and the author’s ability to convey the experience of Breq, a character who used to be a sentient spaceship that saw through the eyes of thousands of bodies (her “ancillaries”), and is now confined to the body of one survivor, is impressive. This was the Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Discussion Group selection for April 2015.
Also available as an audiobook and an eBook.
