from the Mobtown Shank Review by Sarah Pinsker
This is a hell of a first novel. A protagonist who is also a thousands-years-old ship, which is also the thousands of troops (so-called "corpse soldiers") on board, and is also one particular subset of those troops. A narrative that jumps seamlessly between past and distant past and present, and between the "I" of Breq, chasing a particular gun, and the "I" of the ship Justice of Toren, and the many "I"s of One Esk. The result is a peculiar first person narrative that can describe events that take place across time and space and seemingly private conversations to which it might not have been privy. It isn't omniscience, just the broadest definition of the first-person perspective that I've ever seen. Brilliant. (Posted on 1/31/14)
