Ambassador Mahit Dzmare arrives in the center of the multi-system Teixcalaanli Empire only to discover that her predecessor, the previous ambassador from their small but fiercely independent mining Station, has died. But no one will admit that his death wasn't an accident--or that Mahit might be next to die, during a time of political instability in the highest echelons of the imperial court. Now, Mahit must discover who is behind the murder, rescue herself, and save her Station from Teixcalaan's unceasing expansion--all while navigating an alien culture that is all too seductive, engaging in intrigues of her own, and hiding a deadly technological secret--one that might spell the end of her Station and her way of life--or rescue it from annihilation.… (mais)

I think this is probably the most ambitious debut novel I've ever read. Martine has created such a deeply, multi-layered, and intricate novel that it boggles my mind to think about all the work that must have gone into writing this! "Memory" is a novel about political intrigue, cultural imperialism, history keeping, and belonging. At times the narratives were so deeply tied up and obfuscated that I had little idea what was going on, but (as a friend pointed out to me - thank you, Chris!) that actually helps to emphasize the bigger themes of the book. The main character, Mahit, struggles so much with her ideas of where she belongs and is often overwhelmed by the culture in which she finds herself; as a reader, I felt the same sense of displacement at everything related to Texicalaan.
That being said, I probably (definitely) missed some things. Even with rereading certain pages over again, I still don't think I fully understood what exactly happened at times. Aside from the main four, characters became muddled in my mind, and honestly just seemed to speak in riddles to each other. And while it heightens that sense of the unknown I also would have like to have been less confused at key moments. This is definitely a book that needs a reread to grasp what goes down.
Again, I'm so impressed by just how much went into writing this! Texicalaan is well fleshed-out and has a deep, rich presence, full of its own literature, poetry, characteristics, nuances, etc. that just make reading the book feel like a trip to the city itself. I'm very interested to find out where this story is taken next. ( )

A Memory Called Empire is a political thriller filled with danger and intrigue, and a tender story about trust and love and grief.

Mahit is the new ambassador from Lsel, a tiny mining colony at the edge of known space, to the empire of Teixcalaan (think Space Rome). Her predecessor died unexpectedly and without much explanation, so she has to navigate the twisting maze of foreign politics and her predecessor's secrets without "unexpectedly dying" herself. She also must decide who is an ally, who is a friend, and who is an opponent in this lonely, unfamiliar world.

It's early in the year to declare a favorite, but this book stands up to all the best ones I read in 2019. ( )

When I read the blurb of this book, I was really enthusiastic. It sounded really like my kind of thing. And partly, I really liked it indeed, particularly towards the end, but I had a great deal of trouble getting into it.
The idea of the imago, having another person's memories in your mind, I found really appealing, but unfortunately, through a twist in the plot, it played a very small part in a large part of the book. Well, not the existence of imago-machines, but the having of one. The protagonist starts out very lost, and it took two thirds of the book before I had the feeling she was doing more than just blundering from one place to another. That's not her fault, she is obviously capable, with or without an imago, but I didn't like having to read about it for so long.
I started really liking the book after that, also because the friendship between Mahit and Three Seagrass was taking shape, and because I was starting to get a feel for the world. The book has a lot going for it, interesting concepts, both technological and societal, capable protagonists, a friendship and loyalty between 2 women.
But the beginning, and with that I mean well over half the book, was too much of a struggle for me to give it a very good rating.

And what's with those unreadable bits of text at the beginning of each chapter? They were boring and only served to get me out of the story... ( )

This was fun as heck! I don't know if there is a name for this particular subgenre of SF - anthropological SF, sure, but is there also diplomatic SF? Should I be reading spy fiction? Whatever, I want more "fish out of water" novels where the protagonist spends a lot of time navigating bureaucracies and attending dinner parties, using every ounce of emotional intelligence and cultural knowledge they've got to read the room.

This would be a five-star read if I'd gotten a little more emotionally invested in the characters and world. The prose is exquisite and the storytelling top-notch, so I'm not sure what I was missing. Perhaps a little more development of Yskandr would have made the story coalesce - he's the emotional heart of the novel, so I suppose I'd have liked a deeper, more intuitive sense of his character.

Behind the cloak-and-dagger maneuvers that drive the foreground action lies a consideration of the ways cultures maintain themselves and how individuals navigate “belonging” to such frameworks. It’s an absorbing and sometimes challenging blend of intrigue and anthropological imagination... It is also often quite funny, in a gentle and sneaky way.
