Product description

Review

'Wildly imaginative, really interesting ... The scope of it was immense' Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States.

'A milestone in Chinese science fiction' New York Times.

'A marvellous mélange of awe-inspiring scientific concepts, clever plotting and quirky yet plausible characters, all conveyed in in a plain style capable of signalling hidden depths' The Times.

'The best kind of science fiction' Kim Stanley Robinson.

'Vivid, imaginative and rooted in cutting-edge science ... Cixin stands at the top tier of speculative fiction in any language' David Brin.

'Full of surprises and wondrous ideas ... The depth of feeling here is extraordinary. Emotion and science brilliantly co-exist. To call the vision grand and ambitious seems a ridiculous understatement ... I await the conclusion, Death's End, in the spring with enormous anticipation. I have no doubt that when this trilogy is complete we will have a masterpiece on our hands' For Winters Nights.

'Hauntingly gentle in its delivery and gorgeous in its own wondrous atmosphere, The Dark Forest is a quiet slice of lovely science fiction ... it's bursting with character and ingenuity' Starburst magazine.

'Chinese SF has been neglected in the wider world for far too long' Interzone.

'A breakthrough book ... a unique blend of scientific and philosophical speculation, politics and history, conspiracy theory and cosmology, where kings and emperors from both western and Chinese history mingle in a dreamlike game world, while cops and physicists deal with global conspiracies, murders, and alien invasions in the real world' George RR Martin.

'[The Three-Body Problem and The Dark Forest are] the works of fiction I am most enthusiastic about' Bloomberg.
