This near-future trilogy is the first chance for English-speaking readers to experience this multiple-award-winning phenomenon from Cixin Liu, China's most beloved science fiction author.
In The Dark Forest, Earth is reeling from the revelation of a coming alien invasion-in just four centuries' time. The aliens' human collaborators may have been defeated, but the presence of the sophons, the subatomic particles that allow Trisolaris instant access to all human information, means that Earth's defense plans are totally exposed to the enemy. Only the human mind remains a secret. This is the motivation for the Wallfacer Project, a daring plan that grants four men enormous resources to design secret strategies, hidden through deceit and misdirection from Earth and Trisolaris alike. Three of the Wallfacers are influential statesmen and scientists, but the fourth is a total unknown. Luo Ji, an unambitious Chinese astronomer and sociologist, is baffled by his new status. All he knows is that he's the one Wallfacer that Trisolaris wants dead.

Congratulations on winning the Hugo award!
Well deserved. This is the one of the best, most exciting sci-fi novels I have read for a long time.
Riveting and profoundly moving. Worthy of the awards this author has won. I appreciate the careful translation that brought the richness of the Chinese language through to English. Thank you for a truly entertaining and inspiring read.
Seemed more dense than was part one
Perhaps it was the different translator, but the dialogue in this part of the trilogy seemed more mechanical than did that of the first part. The novel is less literary than The Three-Body Problem.
