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.

Review of 'The Three-Body Problem' on 'GoodReads'

5 stars

This was a stunning read. A dense mix of history and science entangled in a science fiction story. I especially liked the insight into the history of China written by a Chinese author. The science part is also very up2date. There are quite a few twists to the story and the characters are quite nuanced. This makes this book an interesting read and a novel in the rather classic sense and easy to read even for non-science addicted readers.
