The Three-Body Problem is the first chance for English-speaking readers to experience the Hugo Award-winning phenomenon from China's most beloved science fiction author, Liu Cixin.

Set against the backdrop of China's Cultural Revolution, a secret military project sends signals into space to establish contact with aliens. An alien civilization on the brink of destruction captures the signal and plans to invade Earth. Meanwhile, on Earth, different camps start forming, planning to either welcome the superior beings and help them take over a world seen as corrupt, or to fight against the invasion. The result is a science fiction masterpiece of enormous scope and vision.

Sci-Fi if you haven't already: Three Body Problem (fantastic, imaginative, slow-paced and quite cynical trilogy with interesting explanation to Fermi paradox) It's one of those books that stay with you after you read them. I was not able to read anything else for a month.

Would recommend Three-Body Problem if you’ve never read it.
