Publisher's Summary

Justice for all
Breq - the soldier who used to be a spaceship - is serving the emperor she swore to destroy. She's been given her own warship, her own crew, and ordered to the only place in the galaxy she would have agreed to go: to Athoek Station, to protect the family of the lieutenant she murdered in cold blood. Athoek was annexed by the Empire some 600 years ago, and by now everyone is fully 'civilised'. Or should be - but everything is not as tranquil as it appears. Old divisions are still troublesome, Athoek Station's AI is restless, and it looks like the alien Presger might have taken an interest in what's going on. With no guarantees that their interest is benevolent.

Horrible, horrible, HORRIBLE! narration

How could the performance have been better?

The story aside - which you will pretty much know if you like by having read the first instalment in this series - the narration in this audiobook makes listening to it almost insufferable. Apparently the narrator have the idea that everyone speaking is either dead drunk or high on helium. This makes the narration go from almost impossible to decifer to eardrum shattering high-pitched. Furthermore it has the effect of making the story seem like a caricature giving this otherwise thoughtful book an unintended comical aura. In summary, i really HATED the narration.

An excellent follow on from Ancillary Justice

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I already have - a new angle on SciFi that is beautifully written and narrated. Not quite as tight a story as the first book, clearly positioning for the third...but it can't come soon enough.

Ms Andoh is a brilliant narrator.

Have you listened to any of Adjoa Andoh’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Ancillary Justice - and she's still great.
