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.… (lisätietoja)

This feels like a pretty clear cut 4-star. The book (audiobook for me) had a lot of issues which bothered me a bit while reading:

1. The narrator said “lag range point” instead of “lagrange point”. Alright, this is petty, but it was jarring every time.
2. The characters were a bit.. simple? I felt like I knew who most of them were at the very beginning, and no one ever surprised much. Most of the “villains” were non-PoV characters, making it relatively clear who was intentionally being kept shady. Somehow, everything seems to revolve oddly around the POV characters as well, despite their relative unimportance amidst the vast scope of the story.
3. The internal dialogues you spend most of your time listening to are pretty basic.
4. The previous two things made the book feel very YA. Maybe it is, and I’m just over YA SF.
5. Apparently neurosurgery with totally unknown technology just works?
6. Nothing really concluded at the end.

Beyond that, some new interesting ideas, good names and terms (ezuazacat was a favorite of mine), and an interesting enough story. Probably more like a 3.5, but it accompanied me on enough runs so I feel a bit generous. ( )

A Memory Called Empire tells the story of Mahit Dzmare, the ambassador from a small asteroid-mining nation to the expansive space empire known as Teixcalaan. She arrives following the mysterious demise of the previous ambassador, and has to move quickly to avoid becoming a political football in a court where she is completely unaware of her predecessor's schemes. Following the intelligent and likable Mahit as she works to unravel the political intrigues of the court and her predecessor's place in them is a joy. However, I would be remiss not to mention the excellent world-building--Teixcalaan has a very inwardly-focused society that's reminiscient of the Roman Empire, but at the same time it's a society that attaches a great deal of prestige to the literary arts and poetry. Put together, this is one of the better books that I've read in a while. ( )

Interesting sci-fi story about an ambassador from a small nation to the capital of the major local Empire with the twist of having the memories of their predecessor accessible/semi integrated. I only had a bit of a tough time with the names of the character as the numbers made me mix them up quite often. Looking forward to the next book in the series. ( )

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. ( )

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.
 
Arkady Martine has created a stunning accomplishment with her debut novel; A Memory Called Empire is a success by every metric possible.
