    Gender vs AI

    I've tried to read this book twice. At first glance, writing style seemed to be hard to follow and to understand. Especially confusing was usage of pronouns and gender specific information — it diverted my attention from the storyline to solving a puzzle: was it male or female, was it hetero or homosexual community? Second attempt was easier. Sexual "instability" had became familiar and storyline finally bloomed through. This story clearly depicts future AI systems and theirs problems with self-identification. Especially tasty was delicate defining AI's emotions — not so clumsy like Lieutenant Data from ST and not too human. It's not clear, how this book will continue as series (yet 2 more books to come), for me it has sufficient ending.

    Space Opera

    An excellent and highly imaginative space opera. If you enjoyed series such as Iain Banks "Culture" or Jack Campbell's "Lost Fleet", then this is worth a look at. It's like a much better version of the old "Andromeda" TV series. Will written, with a character depth that's literally out of this world. Anne Leckie didn't hold back from the complexity of her characters, but she executed it well, making it accessible and easy to follow.

    Spaceships

    Like a Culture novel with marginally less impressive tech and radically different social and economic systems. Top shelf contemporary sci-fi.

    Great. Just great.

    It's just such a compelling, interesting read. I love sci fi and this is perfect.
