The Three-Body Problem

The Three-body Problemby Cixin Liu

Contact has been made.  Aliens exists and they know we are here. This is the story of what happens when people find out that we aren't alone in the universe.  

Translated from the original Chinese Cixin Liu brings a under-represented point of view to science fiction to the West. A fair amount of plot points are based on modern Chinese history, including the Cultural Revolution.  Both the author and translator have added footnotes to help clarify some points for the reader unfamiliar with that part of history.  That said, Liu admits that he is heavily influenced by major Western writers, so you can find planety of similarities with Arthur C. Clark, Philip K. Dick, and others.

The order of some chapters are changed from the original Chinese versionwith the author's approval. He felt that differing tastes would make the book more appealing if he changed the order of the narrative, but the content is still all the same.

This is the first in a trilogy, with books two and three coming soon in English. The whole trilogy is already available in the library is Chinese.
