    Strange & wonderful

    Keeps you guessing and doesn't disappoint. It's like Ender's Game meets The Mote in God's Eye in a Murakami novel. Hard sci fi, but not pedantically s..Show More »

    This near-future trilogy is the first chance for English-speaking listeners to experience this multiple-award-winning phenomenon from Cixin Liu, China's most beloved science fiction author. In The Dark Forest, Earth is reeling from the revelation of a coming alien invasion - in just four centuries' time. The aliens' human collaborators may have been defeated, but the presence of the sophons, the subatomic particles that allow Trisolaris instant access to all human information, means that Earth's defense plans are totally exposed to the enemy.

    Amazing

    I've been inhaling science fiction for almost 50 years. This book had several major ideas I hadn't seen before, including an interesting take on the F..Show More »

    The Trisolarian fleet has left their home world and will arrive in four centuries' time. But the Sophons and their extradimensional emissaries are already here. This is the motivation for the Wallfacer Project, a last-ditch defence that grants four individuals almost absolute power to design secret strategies, hidden through deceit and misdirection. Luo Ji, an unambitious Chinese astronomer, is baffled by his new status. All he knows is that he's the one Wallfacer that Trisolaris wants dead.

    Forces you to reflect

    A great piece of work that forces you to reflect about humanity, science, space and all of it.

    Half a century after the Doomsday Battle, the uneasy balance of Dark Forest Deterrence keeps the Trisolaran invaders at bay. Earth enjoys unprecedented prosperity due to the infusion of Trisolaran knowledge. With human science advancing daily and the Trisolarans adopting Earth culture, it seems that the two civilizations will soon be able to coexist peacefully as equals, without the terrible threat of mutually assured annihilation. But the peace has also made humanity complacent.

    A story worth waiting for

    What a truly epic sci-fi saga. If you haven't read the 3-body trilogy, you're missing out. The scale is hard to grasp, let alone explain. So I won't e..Show More »
