The Three-Body Problem


I put off reading this one for a long time because I was so afraid it wouldn't live up to expectations. Oh how wrong I was. It is fantastic.

I can't say I followed all the science in this book, but the story was so strong I didn't need to. From the beginning, where I shed a tear in the first chapter, the tension built as you follow on until the edge-of-your-seat ending.

This is what great SF is meant to be and I can't wait for book 2.
