Description

The Trisolarian fleet has left their home world and will arrive in four centuries' time. But the Sophons and their extradimensional emissaries are already here. This is the motivation for the Wallfacer Project, a last-ditch defence that grants four individuals almost absolute power to design secret strategies, hidden through deceit and misdirection.

Luo Ji, an unambitious Chinese astronomer, is baffled by his new status. All he knows is that he's the one Wallfacer that Trisolaris wants dead.

A gem

This is the kind of book you always hope for when you open up that first page. This was the book I never knew I needed. A classic outside of the western culture bubble where I usually find my reading material. I was so glad that I had the opportunity to read this. This was a rarity. Exceptionally clever, thrilling, a single book exploding with enough ideas and ambition to rival even the longest fantasy series out there.

Forces you to reflect

A great piece of work that forces you to reflect about humanity, science, space and all of it.

Pure Genius

I just love the way interplanetary disputes are handled by a genius mind. A long story but wait for it.

It starts slow, but has an epic ending

It's worth the time. At many points early in the book it feels really slow, but once it picks up pace is nice.

An epic which reflects the humanity

Liu Cixin has a theory on cosmic-sociology, which cover military, history, economy and technology, and may be the greatest threat to humanity.

Brain candy

This book is as good as previous of the trilogy, full of ideas to think of, but also with a good story flow. Highly recommended.

Anders, aber sehr gut!

Etwas irritierend ist zu Beginn, dass die Personen andere sind, als im ersten Teil, was durch die zunächst nur schwer unterscheidbaren chinesischen Namen nicht einfacher wird, und dass die Handlung nicht mehr in der jüngeren Vergangenheit und Gegenwart stattfindet, sondern in einer immer ferneren Zukunft. Nach ein wenig Reinhören wird es aber richtig spannend, auch weil die vielen aufgeworfenen philosophisch-existentiellen Fragen fesseln!

Beautifully narrated! Lots of food for thought! Just difficult to keep track of all the Chinese names.

Great

Started off slowly and turned out to be a worthy sequel. Quite philosophical and ruminous.

Ein tolles Erlebnis, jederzeit wieder

Die Geschichte des Buches ist insgesamt toll. Auf die Details der darin beschriebenen Entwicklung der Menschheit gehe ich nicht ein, da die unvorhersehbaren, jedoch sinnvollen Wendungen dieser Entwicklung für mich den großen Reiz dieses Werkes ausmachen. Für Menschen, die Faszination für die Zukunft der Menschheit, Ethik, Physik und Technischen Fortschritt haben, ist dieser Roman ein tolles und ungewöhnliches Abenteuer sein.

Der Sprecher macht seinen Job sehr gut. Ich gebe ihm jedoch nicht alle 5 Sterne, da seine Intonation stellenweise zu stark mit meiner Interpretation der Emotionen in den Gesprächen in Kontrast steht.

Ich freue mich sehr auf den nächsten Teil der Geschichte und spreche eine große Empfehlung aus.

Surprising, twisting, playing with expectations

This novel is simply great. The author brings in concepts from classical Chinese literature, and is seriously playing with your expectations. The book sometimes seems a bit lengthy, and there are several serious "WTF???" moments that seem like deus-ex-machina cheats. But: in the end, everything is resolved, and is completely logical. If you like films from Christopher Nolan, then you'll be amazed by this book.

Hervorragendes Hörbuch!

Der zweite Teil der Reihe ist genau wie der erste vollgepackt mit viel Science.
Hier wird richtig was zum nachdenken geboten: etliche äußerst interessante Konzepte sind in der Geschichte eingebettet und werden bis ins Detail beleuchtet.

The stupidity will blow your mind

This book offers an interesting story and promises great difficult challenges and creative solutions to them. But it only delivers part of that.
And the worst thing is that at some part in the story, you are presented with that VERY obvious trap that you see coming for ages and nobody in the book seems to care about... it might drive you mad. I've never felt that much disrespect from any author... does he really thing that even a small part of the readers didn't see that blatant plot twist coming for miles? Details in the spoiler-section below.
If you don't mind that, the book is an interesting read, but please don't say that you hadn't been warned.


***STORY SPOILERS BELOW***

***STORY SPOILERS BELOW***



The problem for me is that some of the time-steps in the story leave you puzzled. Before this one major timestep, everything seems to be in control. Jump 180 years into the future, and suddenly everyone seems to have gone totally mad. The frightening enemy that's hundreds of years ahead of you technologically (without any chance of closing that gap) is on course to invading earth... but suddenly, everyone is so convinced that defeating them is only a trivial matter. The "new" earthlings are already celebrating their victory against that still totally unknown and mysterious invader that they hardly know anything about. They are shedding tears of joy and walk into this VERY VERY obvious trap. The whole process takes about 50 pages (which feel more like 300 pages), and everyone is celebrating while you can't stop banging your head against the wall in disbelieve. How stupid does the author think we are? I can hardly think of anyone that would not have called that one out. And the characters in the book just turn stupid, all at the same time, and walk into the trap. There aren't even doubts or anything that might make you get back your faith in the story.
Afterwards, they have long philosophical discussions that show how everyone know for hundreds of years that peace with an unknown race is highly improbably, just to rub it into your face.

I'm not sure what other obvious plot-twists the author will force onto me in the future, but this one has been the worst I have read in a few hundred books over the last 20 years. And let me tell you, I have encountered a few books with very stupid writing.

It was VERY difficult to get through that part of the book, and if I hadn't already bought the third book of the trilogy I'd have stopped right there.
I certainly won't buy another book from this author, I haven't felt so stupid for a long time.
