The Three-Body Problem is the first chance for English-speaking readers to experience this multiple 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.

Best Chinese Sci-Fi in years

Huge amount of information and imagination packed into one story. Beside the wonderful sci-fi elements, the book portrays vividly the unique cultural and social status of a special period of China.
From my point of view, the concept of "by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future" from Cloud Atlas is explained here ever better.
If you want to read one book and get to know Chinese science fiction, this is the one to read.

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.

It's a great start

I'm Chinese and I've read all three novels of this series in Chinese. In my opinion the second novel is the most wonderful one. I hope all of them can be translated well and published soon.
