Or, alternatively, The Force Awakens. Unsurprisingly, Michael’s opinion is “meh,” but I found the film quite satisfying.
Also? This review is going to be full of ALL THE SPOILERS, so, you know, watch for that.
Well, this book was a wild ride.
First, I’ll note that Ancillary Justice has chalked up a lot of big awards — notably including the Hugo and Nebula awards. So, there’s definitely something there.
Second, if you’re interesting in mind-bending future stuff where the how does it work of the technology is less important than how does it change society, and how cultures clash as a consequence, this is a great read.
With lots of thinking to be done afterwards.
And when I say gorgeous, I mean it. Much of the art reminds me of Studio Ghibli.
Also, I recommend warm clothing and hot chocolate. The story revolves around an Iñupiat (Native Alaskan) girl and her pet fox, and as you might imagine, it gets pretty chilly. The story and art are beautiful, and if you’re looking for a pleasant game with a fun story but without too many dark elements, I give a happy recommendation.
