The Three-Body Problem is the first chance for English-speaking readers to experience this multiple 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.

The best science fiction
No "one of". The author's imagination is far beyond conventional fictions who just focus on a single topic. This is a combination of science, history, humanity and love (a higher level). My strong recommendation.
BEST SCIFI FICITION
Not that great
It's an interesting read but only from the perspective of learning about the Chinese culture. The story itself is slow and not especially imaginative.
