Death's End is a great end to an exciting trilogy. The Trisolaris series is rightly regarded as one of the best science fiction stories of the early 21st century. A core story that spans a few centuries and an ending that ventures a glimpse into a future thousands of years away was extremely interesting and, as usual from the author, incorporated many ideas and insights from disciplines such as physics and sociology. The main weakness of the series was the sometimes rather weak characters, who were sometimes less believable and unusually distant, but this was perhaps necessary for the role they played in the story.
