Years ago, she was the Justice of Toren - a colossal starship with an artificial intelligence linking thousands of corpse soldiers in the service of the Radch, the empire that conquered the galaxy. An act of treachery has ripped it all away, leaving her with only one fragile human body. And only one purpose - to revenge herself on Anaander Mianaai, many-bodied, near-immortal Lord of the Radch.

Can't get past the Narrator to finish the story.
I bought this book because of the numerous awards it has received and the author is local to me so I wanted to support her work. However, when I tried to give it a listen, the narration was so bad that I just could not continue. The reader has no vocal inflection and does very deliberate pauses at all commas and periods to the point where I could not focus on the story. I would love to finish the book and comment on the work but this is not is a listenable condition for me at this point. Hopefully Audible will read these reviews and encourage a new reading so we can enjoy the work.

Good Story Spoiled by Narrator
Would you try another book from Ann Leckie and/or Celeste Ciulla?
Ann Leckie yes, Celeste Ciulla no.
What didn’t you like about Celeste Ciulla’s performance?
The phrasing and intonation were weird and distracted from the words. She would often end sentences on a rising note making everything sound like a question. It was very difficult to listen to.
