Product description

Review

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

'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.

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

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

'Liu Cixin's impressive The Three Body Problem won the 2015 Hugo award for best novel, the first time a Chinese writer has taken that prize' Guardian (2015 Books of the Year).

'It's a stunning, high-concept, rollercoaster of a novel which offers an intriguing Eastern perspective ... this is a trilogy which, like Asimov's Foundation epic, looks set to quickly become an essential science fiction classic' Starburst Magazine (rating: 9/10).

'China has a lively SF scene inaccessible to western audiences until recently, so it's a great pleasure to read this book by Cixin Liu – the country's most popular SF writer – in English. Handled expertly on the terms of the genre, it is seeing this tale played out through a different cultural lens that makes the book fascinating. The translation is exemplary. The book is top-flight SF; smart, informative and engaging' SFX.

'Hard science fiction at its finest, and fans will appreciate the superb attention to detail that drives this constantly evolving and impressive series' SciFiNow Magazine.

'The writing is superb ... The ideas are astounding, real eye-openers that expand the mind and really get the old grey matter going ... A stand-out, award-worthy novel and one that deserves a place amongst the science fiction classics' SF Book Reviews.

'For a book that makes you think, and holds true to some of the traditional values of SF, this one can't be beat' SFF World Magazine.

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