Product description

Review

"A breakthrough book . . . a unique blend of scientific and philosophical speculation." --George R. R. Martin, on The Three Body Problem

"Extraordinary." --The New Yorker, on The Three Body Problem

"Remarkable, revelatory and not to be missed." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on The Three Body Problem

A must-read in any language." --Booklist, on The Three Body Problem

A meditation on technology, progress, morality, extinction, and knowledge that doubles as a cosmos-in-the-balance thriller.... a testament to just how far [Liu's] own towering imagination has taken him... forever into the canon of science fiction. - NPR, on Death's End

The best kind of science fiction, familiar but strange all at the same time. -- Kim Stanley Robinson, on The Three Body Problem
