...sort of. I haven't decided yet if I'm rereading the whole thing, everything except the more boring chunks (like the mourning portion), or just the bits at the beginning and end (which are my absolute favorite).
Thoughts, up to page 46:
- Anaander Mianaai is pretty awful.
- Reading Lieutenant Tisarwat's bio makes me sad, now that I understand what's going on.
- Breq and Seivarden's discussion about ancillary sex is so very awkward. Also, I'm pretty sure this bit is saying that ships are aromantic asexuals, although the ancillaries make things more complicated. I still can't decide whether Breq doesn't notice that Seivarden is interested (although how could she not?), has noticed but doesn't care, or is deliberately pretending not to notice for some reason.
