Description

Half a century after the Doomsday Battle, the uneasy balance of Dark Forest Deterrence keeps the Trisolaran invaders at bay. 

Earth enjoys unprecedented prosperity due to the infusion of Trisolaran knowledge, and, with human science advancing and the Trisolarans adopting Earth culture, it seems that the two civilizations can coexist peacefully as equals, without the terrible threat of mutually assured annihilation. But peace has made humanity complacent. 

Cheng Xin, an aerospace engineer from the 21st century, awakens from hibernation in this new age. She brings knowledge of a long-forgotten program dating from the start of the Trisolar Crisis, and her presence may upset the delicate balance between two worlds. Will humanity reach for the stars or die in its cradle?

Amazing, well thought out science fiction.

When I started the series I thought book one was a tad slow.. Man has that been turned around. What a brilliant, massive expansive world he has created in this book series. Wrapping it up in a satisfying conclusion.

Too grand to bear itself

This book concludes the three body problem trilogy by trying to outdo the previous two books - which it does, but not necessarily in a good way. While the ideas presented in this book are interesting and thought provoking, most of the ideas doesn't have much room to breathe. One after another an even grander concept than the one before is presented to the reader. It's captivating at first, but after a while it becomes tiring to listen through yet another grand new thing almost indescribable by human words. It doesn't help that the author doesn't fully commit to the ideas. Once the world building around one idea is done the book leaves it as an anecdote and focuses on the next big idea. Overall an enjoyable book because I liked many of the ideas, but it showcases that more doesn't necessarily mean better. Dark forest stands as my favorite in the trilogy.

Ended with "huh"

I really enjoyed the performance and translation. Felt different, throughout the series, than have-a-usual-space-opera. However, I was expecting much more. Ending seemed rushed and put together with what and how seemed easiest, backed with few scientific theories. The biggest question for me while reading all three books was "how is he going to pull it?". And Liu left me hanging. Bruno's absolutely magnificent performance made this book fantastic for me as he really set the atmosphere so well!

Ideas over story

I had a hard time enjoying not just this book but the series as a whole. After struggling through the second book I waited several years before starting the third but I did want to know the ending after all. The scope and amount of ideas was impressive and the ideas appear to be rooted in proper science. Some truly made me consider the universe in new ways. However, good ideas don't make an enjoyable novel. It's likely something important is lost in the translation from Chinese but I had a hard time empathizing with the characters or even understanding their actions or personal development. The characters' speech almost never felt natural to me and quite often the dialogue felt like pure exposition. An important principle in western composition is "Show, don't tell", which I feel would've made the book much more enjoyable if applied. I felt the author often did the opposite. This may be a cultural thing, and admittedly my experience with Chinese authors is very limited, but I can only write this review from my own western perspective with the translated version. So many ideas were introduced one after the other with barely any time to consider the consequences that it sometimes felt the author just needed to get those out of the way as a foundation for the next big one. The human factor was sometimes lost. This fits the premise so who knows, it may have been intentional, but I doubt it. Audible has two versions of this audiobook in their catalog. I returned the edition narrated by P. J. Ochlan because I didn't like the narration and knew there was another version available. The other narration, by Bruno Roubicek who also narrated the first two audiobooks, was more enjoyable though I feel Roubicek was hampered by the book. His pronunciation of Chinese and other non-English names was excellent. There were very few errors for almost 30 hours of material. Am I glad I read this series? Yes, but not for the story. Just the ideas.

Man ersehnt das Ende!

Ein leider etwas enttäuschendes Ende zu dieser überaus hervorragenden Trilogie. Zum Schluss wirkt es dann doch eher verworren und gewollt. Vor allem die sonst so fein verwobene Geschichte wird dann leider sehr grob.

Grand Accounting

Grand ideas, hard science, told in excruciating detail. I found the narration a bit too linear for my taste.
