Product description

Review

'A unique blend of scientific and philosophical speculation, politics and history, conspiracy theory and cosmology' -- George RR Martin

'Wildly imaginative, really interesting ... The scope of it was immense' -- Barack Obama

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

'A marvellous mélange of awe-inspiring scientific concepts, clever plotting and quirky yet plausible characters' ― TLS

'China's answer to Arthur C. Clarke' ― The New Yorker

'Even what doesn't happen is epic' ― London Review of Books

'Cixin Liu began his massively ambitious trilogy with this dazzling work of SF ... Hard to sum up in a few short lines, but one you read it you'll be doing your best to tell everyone else to follow suit' ― SciFiNow

'This is the first of a trilogy that begins in the Sixties and reaches a shattering climax 18,906,416 years later, by which time the war for Earth has, quite literally, acquired new dimensions' ― The Times

'The most amazing story. You learn so much' ― Daily Mirror.
