Mid-February 2016 reading...

I started Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie last week.  I'm at page 107.  The narrator is an AI turned female human named Breq who wants revenge for losing her command, the Justice of Toren.  She's also part of the Radch empire that rules human space.

Problem is, Radch uses genderless speech.  The only way I can figure out whether someone is male/female is when Breq talks in another language with gender pronouns.  That makes Ancillary Justice different and a challenge to comprehend.  I'll see what I think of Leckie's use of generless speech when I get done with the book.

Also, the review for Masters of the Art:  A Fighting Marine's Memoir of Vietnam by Ronald E. Winter is now posted on my blog...
