Welcome to the monthly meeting of the io9 Book Club. In December, we read Ann Leckie's Ancillary Justice. Jump into comments to get started talking about it!

For those unfamiliar with the io9 book club, here's how it works: You read the book. We create a special book club post on io9 when the meeting is in session. That would be the post you're reading. Then everybody talks about the book in comments for a few days, starting right now.

Sorry we delayed this week's meeting from last week — I was out sick last Tuesday (yes, I'm all better).

Leckie will be here to talk to you about the book from 12-1 PM Pacific Time on Friday, Jan. 17 — I'll put up a post with a call for questions for her on that day. So, what did you think of Ancillary Justice?

Want to get started on our next book?

In January, we'll be reading Tony Burgess' disturbing (and funny) post-zombie novel The N-Body Problem. We'll meet on Feb. 11 to discuss it!

DISCUSSION

Well, in general, I quite liked the book. I especially liked how everyone was addressed as her/she, a simple touch that added a nice alien feel.

My main complaint is that Berq finding Seivarden went from being an interesting bit of character description and a neat way to explain the universe, as Berq needs to explain the new world to her, to becoming an unbelievable plot coupon at the end.
