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.

Had to get the ebook because I had tried the audiobook from the library and the guy performing it was just too dull.

Ahh kills me that I didn't get the first one in the series when it was on sale a few days ago because I didn't want to get just one. Now that one is back to normal price and this is on sale, makes me wonder if the third will be soon.
Thanks I'll have to keep an eye out, have read the first two not the third...

It's all right. As a social science person I don't really appreciate how the author reduce intergalactic-relations to one-off noon-cooperative games.
I think that is kind.if.the point?

Read the series don't get why everyone likes it. Ending was crap and the story in general boring.

Ok.. So 1. Why did you read the whole series 2. You might be the one explaining why you don't like it then since most everyone likes it, "ending was crap" and "boring" doesn't really explain anything. Also you've been on here since 2013 and use one of ten posts to express this opinion without any actual reason? That's your judgement, which you're entitled to, but isn't a reason.

I mean put it this way, if you haven't read it yet and your post was an Amazon review, does it tell you anything about the books or help you decide whether you should buy it? Unfortunately we've all seen a ton of reviews like that.

It doesn't even matter anyway, it's a deal given the price, it's a popular item, and this is a deal site.

Okay... well the first post just says "highly recommended its a good series" or something like that mine is just as helpful just seems like it doesn't meet your same opinion so don't call me out for an unhelpful review when the problem seems to be you don't like what I said.

No, it's because it's an opinion and not specific information - same goes for the OP. Although with OP it's just a statement about it being popular. You are welcome to say why you found it boring but you didn't. All I know is some stranger on the internet didn't like it but not why, how is that helpful?

Actually that's not even what the first post says, there's a whole synopsis of the story there so I don't even know what you're referring to.

I enjoyed all 3 books, but found this one the hardest to read overall as it had no real chapters.
