I loved this book. The Three-Body Problem has a great set of characters and a compelling and well paced non-linear story that spans over several years, from the tumultuous Chinese cultural revolution to a near future.

There’s a lot in this book, it is ambitious and deals with a multitude of themes that sometimes seem a bit too much. It also might seem a bit trippy at times, but bear with it all, it works really well and it’s all done with a purpose.

The Three-Body Problem is the first book of a trilogy, and I must say that I loved it so much, that I’m kind of scared of reading the second book. I’m going to read it, just not right now, I’m going to let this one sink in for a few months.

It is one of the best science fiction books I’ve read and a fresh take on science fiction, I definitely recommend this book!
