The Three-Body Problem
is the first chance for English-speaking readers to experience the Hugo Award-winning phenomenon from China's most beloved science fiction author, Liu Cixin.


Set against the backdrop of China's Cultural Revolution, a secret military project sends signals into space to establish contact with aliens. An alien civilization on the brink of destruction captures the signal and plans to invade Earth. Meanwhile, on Earth, different camps start forming, planning to either welcome the superior beings and help them take over a world seen as corrupt, or to fight against the invasion. The result is a science fiction masterpiece of enormous scope and vision.

Good but overly scientific at times

Great book, would recommend. The only issue I had was the overly complex physics that the author goes into great detail about. If you are interested in the physics at all then you’ll love this book, I was not so it started to drag at times. Still a fantastic book, amazing premise, and great plot. 8/10 would recommend

One of the best

I have been reading Sci Fi for over 50 years. The rise of Science fantasy had almost made me give up the genre. This book, and hopefully it's sequel, is a new start for real science Sci Fi. On its on it is one of the best I have read. To the author- Thank you.

What the heck?

I can’t help but think these reviews are fake. I’m a casual sci-fi reader and after 100 pages of no plot, no character depth, and a whole lot of switching around between undeveloped characters and disconnected montages, I give up. It’s torture. Maybe something is lost in translation but it’s like the positive reviewers and negative ones are reading two completely different books.
