Description Winner of the 2015 Hugo Award for Best Novel. 1967: Ye Wenjie witnesses Red Guards beat her father to death during China's Cultural Revolution. This singular event will shape not only the rest of her life but also the future of mankind. Four decades later, Beijing police ask nanotech engineer Wang Miao to infiltrate a secretive cabal of scientists after a spate of inexplicable suicides. Wang's investigation will lead him to a mysterious online game and immerse him in a virtual world ruled by the intractable and unpredictable interaction of its three suns. This is the Three-Body Problem and it is the key to everything: the key to the scientists' deaths, the key to a conspiracy that spans light-years and the key to the extinction-level threat humanity now faces.
The Three Body Problem - Staff Choice by Tiemen This is an astounding hard-SF novel. Cixin Liu manages to evoke the strangeness and beauty of our universe. Itís the story of what would happen if humanity made contact with an alien civilization set in the background of the Cultural Revolution and modern-day China. This book is an enormous bestseller in China and, having finally read the translation, I can now say it is well deserved. If Stanley Kubrick were still alive this is the kind of story he would have loved to turn into a movie.
The Three-Body Problem - Customer Choice by Carola van der Drift The Three-Body Problem and The Dark Forest are so good! I loved the first one, which I read in April 2015. I immediately placed a preorder for the second book, and it was even more amazing. I was completely blown away.
