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)

Readable, but ultimately disappointing. I didn't feel that the author took full advantage of her premise -- a diplomatic thriller, set in a complicated political and cultural landscape extrapolated from the Aztec Empire -- to make me feel that I was reading anything deep or transformative about life, politics, the universe or anything.

Think about it for a moment. (As the blurbs on the cover encourage you to do -- wild "best thing since sliced bread" claims abound ...) Iain M. Banks Culture novels are ripping yarns - but they are also thoughtful ruminations on how ideals (socialism; a society dedicated to absolute equality and fairness) run smack into the realities of political complications, and the messiness of individual lives. Ann Leckie's Imperial Radch novels -- again, ripping yarns, but also, on another level (like Banks), playing with issues of identity and gender fluidity. Another author who should, I think, have been mentioned, but wasn't (probably because some 12-year-old editor either hadn't heard of her, or thought she was so old and kinda boooring ...) is Ursula Le Guin. whose Left Hand of Darkness is also about a painfully young diplomat, whose faulty pre-conceptions about the people and culture he is supposed to be liaising with results in tragedy, but also ultimately change (political and personal).

Comparing A Memory Called Empire with The Left Hand of Darkness is probably sufficient to explain why I was underwhelmed. I just felt, in spite of all the promised edginess about gender and identity, that there was no there, there.

The main character, least-well-briefed diplomat in the known Universe Mahit, and her cohorts felt awfully young, and their immediate to-the-death bond completely inexplicable and unrealistic. (I just met you five minutes ago, and you represent the empire that is thinking of steamrolling over my homeland, but hey, I trust you with my life ... Uh-huh.)

Having said that -- I would still say, readable, and Martine is one to watch. I liked the Aztec culture. It felt that a society that had genuinely evolved from those roots, clinging to certain cultural lodestones (the stylized names, the symbolism of blood, the verbal imagery and storytelling) without overdoing it.

Incredible worldbuilding meets with political intrigue in this fast-paced science fiction novel as Ambassador Mahit Dzmare finds herself isolated from home and trying to discover who murdered her predecessor before they can do the same to her. ( )

I thought it was perfectly fine, I like long books but wouldn't want it to be much longer. I don't normally like political intrigue books but at least it only had a few characters. The actual plot sorta dragged but the parts about how empires always consume and that feeling of wanting to be a part of a society which so effortlessly embodies the characteristics you aspire to was well taken. Particularly apt introductory epigraph. I don't know if it's the best 2020 sci-fi book I read ( )

A space opera where the main characters are women and the culture's non-European. Works well, goes at a cracking pace, and a pleasure to read. ( )

This is a reread as I had read this book when it first came out. I had only vague recollections of the story so I reread it before the latest book in the series. I am happy that I did so as there were details that I did not catch in the first reading or I had forgotten. ( )

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.
