The Dark Forest is the second novel in the groundbreaking, Hugo Award-winning series from China's most beloved science fiction author, Cixin Liu.

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. Only the human mind remains a secret. This is the motivation for the Wallfacer Project, a daring plan that grants four men enormous resources to design secret strategies, hidden through deceit and misdirection from Earth and Trisolaris alike. Three of the Wallfacers are influential statesmen and scientists, but the fourth is a total unknown. Luo Ji, an unambitious Chinese astronomer and sociologist, is baffled by his new status. All he knows is that he's the one Wallfacer that Trisolaris wants dead.

The second does not disappoint

Many 2nd books in a series let you down. This one only got better. With the same look into the human souls as heart of darkness this books makes us ask many questions about what humanity and survival means.

I like this story, but

It could be the translation? But this second story can take wandering paths and leave the reader lost for a bit of time at points. I did like at the physics however and it was very interesting and entraining in the end. Great premise for a set of novels.

Really stiff, disjointed, sexist

This is such a slog. There are about 15 different unrelated concepts in here that really should just be a collection of short stories.

Maybe if it were a collection of short stories it wouldn’t be so noticeable that there are no characters in the whole book. The men are robots and the women are objects. It’s creepy.
