The three-body problem

Author: Cixin Liu

The novel is set in the future and follows the discovery of an alien civilization, the Trisolarans, and humanity’s attempts to make contact and defend against them. The book is known for its complex scientific concepts, philosophical ideas, and intricate storyline.

Overall, “The Three-Body Problem” has been highly praised by readers and critics for its unique and thought-provoking approach to science fiction.

Personally, I found this book to be annoying in a few places, especially when it referred to people’s commitment following government decisions. I understand that it has a Chinese background, but I found it irritating when political correctness was emphasized more than rationality. Nonetheless, it was a nice journey.
