The three body problem, Cixin Liu

atouchofsinisbn: 9781784971557 is one of those books everybody else seems to have read except me* Anyhow described as hard** to read it has chinese people in with porn star type names.

The book starts in the past, and makes fools of the cultural revolution for if you deny that everything is wrong except by four people running it that started the revolution then your going to get some problems with logic.

Perhaps that is too hard by the people who have weighed in on the book so ‘get’.  The book is spot on being an ape who knows more chinese history than british.

A problem for me is that this is book one of three, so there is a lazy publisher on the scene.hedging bets.  Overall a very accomplished start let down by a rehash towards the end of book 1.

The author is wise enough to surmise action settings rather than bore me to death.

5/5 bananas
