The Three-Body Problem (Three Body, #1)

by: Cixin Liu

Publisher: Tor Books (2008)


China's most prolific scifi writer is finally in English with this first installment of a trilogy. Physics, aliens, computer science, and the Cultural Revolution (shockingly uncensored) all featured in an epic story reminiscent of the best of Asimov and Clarke, only updated and Chinese.
