The Three-Body Problem

September’s pick is The Three-Body Problem by Cixin Liu.

Recipient of the 2015 Hugo award, this first installment in the Remembrance of Earth’s Past trilogy (Chinese readers generally refer to the series by the title of this first book).

The Three-Body Problem “spans multiple decades and characters, but it zooms in on… two scientists in the very near future. An astrophysicist with a haunted past… and a nanotech engineer [who has] been swept up in a virtual-reality, online video game called Three Body that’s so deeply metaphysical, it’s begun to resemble a cult.

Either of these premises alone would be make for a rich SF novel, but Cixin Liu is only getting warmed up. By the time the book hits its peak, it’s unveiled a conspiracy that spans solar systems — one that not only threatens to alter the human race, but the very building blocks of physics that we’ve evolved to understand.” via NPR.
