Three-Body Problem
Three-Body Problem | Cixin Liu
"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.

3✨I finished this quite a while ago and didn‘t know how to review it. It was entertaining enough that I wanted to continue. It was witty, had a lot of science concepts (some easy, and some you really needed to think about). I was slightly confused the majority of the time. I think it was just too witty for me. #LitsySciFiBookClub

TheSpineView Great job! I agree on the witty comment. 1d

#LSFBC #LitsySciFiBookClub @TheSpineView @CatLass007

I liked this from the beginning, but didn't feel connected with it until a little over halfway through. I like the ideas in it, and the narrative sweep. There aren't any particularly engaging characters in it - perhaps wily police officer Da Shi, but he's not exactly a nice guy - so it's really about the ideas and how they're linked, which I found interesting. It was also interesting to ⬇️

Bookwomble ... pick up some of the triumverates in the story, though whether they were deliberate or apophenic I'm not sure. 4⭐
I wasn't sure I'd bother to read the other books in the series, but having finished this one I think I will at some point.
3d
Kitta I‘m watching the show, it‘s great. 3d
Bookwomble @Kitta I paused watching to read the book spoiler-free, but I'll restart now I've finished. Good to hear it's a good show 😊 3d
Lesliereadsalot The show is really good. Better than the books and I liked the books. 3d
Bookwomble @Lesliereadsalot I've rewatched the first episode, and it's so different to the book that I find it annoying. However, I'm going to set that aside and watch it as it's own thing, not least because then I get to enjoy Benedict Wong as Da Shi: I've had a soft spot for him since his part as lovely but put-upon Errol in 15 Stories High, a British sitcom of the early 2000s. 12h

#LitsySciFiBookClub I read an article about this book a couple of years ago and thought it sounded interesting, so I added it to my Audible library. Three months in a row I nominated it for this buddy read. Now I‘ve listened to the first two chapters and I‘m finding it extremely depressing, even disturbing. This is not a review. I‘m not bailing. I plan to listen to the entire book. Because I haven‘t even gotten to the science fiction part yet.

RamsFan1963 @CatLass007 Yeah the first part didn't seem like sci-fi to me either, but it gets there eventually 1w
CatLass007 @RamsFan1963 Thank you. I believe it will get there eventually but I didn‘t realize I was going to have to wade through the other stuff to get there. 1w
Bookwomble It took me about 50 pages to get into it. It does get more engaging, though I'm not 100% sold yet. 1w

50/150 To be honest, I don't get the hype surrounding this book. Yes I found the story interesting, and I'm giving it a pick, a low pick, but I don't think it's anything especially ground breaking. I can't imagine I'd make it past the first episode of the TV series. I'll be interested to see what the other members of #LitsySciFiBookClub think, if I'm in the minority on this. 3.25/5. @TheSpineView

Starting this for the #LitsySciFiBookClub @TheSpineView
I watched the first episode of the Netflix series, but Mrs B wasn't taken with it, then the book was nominated for the group read, so I've paused the show to avoid spoilers.
I see this has mixed reviews, but I'm partial to some hard sci fi, so have hopes for an enjoyable read 😊📡👽

TheSpineView Enjoy!💙📖📘 2w
Lesliereadsalot Well worth your time (and these books take awhile!). Gotta read the next two when you finish this one. 2w
rwmg I have watched part of the Netflix series, but they seem to have downplayed what I thought was the most fascinating part of the book, or at any rate the part which looms most in my memory from when I read it 7 or 8 years ago
2w
Bookwomble @Lesliereadsalot I'm finding this first one reasonably good going, though I'm not that far in. I was slightly put off when I realised it's a series, as I'm not sure I want to commit, bit ill have to see how I feel at the end! 🙂 1w
Bookwomble @rwmg Oh, that's interesting 🙂 I'll finish the book, and then see if I have a continued interest in watching the series. 1w

Just finished watching the Netflix version of 3 Body Problem and thoroughly enjoyed it - although of course the books are better. As @vivastory said in his review they had to make changes for cost and marketing reasons. In my heart i always want the entire complexity on screen with no conjoining of characters - but thats never possible. I loved seeing the game in full glory, and the Ye Wenjie section was PERFECT. Love Benedict Wong too 🙌

Centique I havent read the third book yet and there was only one spoiler for the third book so that was lucky for me. I hope, hope, hope we get the second series! 1mo
vivastory I read an article recently with the showrunners & they said that their vision for future seasons would be a second season for book 2 & then two seasons for the third book. This def made sense to me. I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical at first, but I was def won over by the end. 1mo
Centique @vivastory yes same. I didnt love having the characters recreated into the Oxford Five - but i can see that that would be useful for a through line to the narrative and for more engagement/emotions with the audience. 1mo

Just reread this first book of the trilogy and starting book 2. For sci-if fans, this one is great reading. On Kindle it‘s easy to flip back to the list of characters as it‘s a little tricky keeping all the Chinese names straight. Can‘t wait to find out if the alien civilization gets to earth!! Highly recommend the Netflix series!

I have to say we‘re enjoying the Netflix show of this series. I haven‘t read the books, but now I‘m thinking I should! If only as I will want to know what happens after series one.
Although I will be thinking differently about getting on a cruise ship this summer…

vivastory The Panama Canal episode.. incredible. This is one of my favorite SF trilogies of all-time. Definitely recommend checking it out. 1mo
ChaoticMissAdventures I haven't watched the show yet but what I gather it is vastly different because Netflix wanted to take most all of the politics out, and spread the story more globally. The book itself is mostly set in China and is fairly political. I enjoyed it even though it was a complex storyline. 1mo

According to Ye Olde Good Reads I read Cixin Liu's The Three-Body Problem six & a half years ago. Within a year I had finished the rest of the trilogy & to this day, it remains among my favorite sff books of all-time. So, last weekend I decided to check out the first episode of the show. I finished the whole season by the end of the weekend & I need season 2 now. I will say that there were some minor changes made, but I can understand why (CONT)

vivastory those changes were made (from visual narrative reason & for budgetary reasons). There is one scene in particular towards the end of bk 1 that I was curious about how it would be adapted. I feel like they did a remarkable job with it. Overall, a great adaptation considering the challenges that the creators faced & it is looking more & more likely that there will not be a second season which isnt surprising considering Netflix, but it's a shame. (edited) 2mo
rwmg Have you seen the Chinese-made adaptation? 2mo
vivastory @rwmg No! I was unaware of it. Is it worth seeking out? 2mo

rwmg I haven't seen it either. The trailer is on YouTube ( https://youtu.be/qqK2oDPzfx4?si=Vt_jJRka20yGSw2s ) and also the first two episodes, but after that you have to get a special app. 2mo
batsy I'm in the first third of Death's End, then I will watch it! I've seen so many mixed takes on the show and that has heightened my curiosity. Lots of comments saying the Chinese version is better but no idea how to watch it. I'm sad that Netflix, or the streaming model, can get shows made, but unless it's an immediate "hit" none of these shows will have a chance for a second season... 2mo
Lesliereadsalot Loved the tv series on Netflix and watched all 8 episodes in two days. It‘s by the Game of Thrones guys and they did it really well. I watched some of the Chinese version but found it too hard to follow. I had only read book one but thinking about starting the trilogy from the beginning. 2mo
vivastory @rwmg Thanks for the info 2mo
vivastory @batsy I was really apprehensive about watching it because I knew that there would be a good chance that they would not commit to future seasons. I agree with you about how broken the current model is for making programming now. It seems like no streaming platform is really dedicated to a show, which is really sad considering that a lot of the most beloved shows were not immediate breakthrough hits with the parameters that they use 2mo
vivastory @Lesliereadsalot Thanks for your perspective on the Chinese version! It was great to see some beloved faces from GoT in the show 😃 It's one of my favorite trilogies, so I of course give it a strong recommendation! 2mo

This is from the author's afterword, which I don't agree with but provides a glimpse into the impetus behind the series. I appreciate his grand, romantic view of science & the wonder it inspires. The novel itself is frustrating & flawed because the writing ranges from the beautiful to the almost prosaic level of a Wikipedia entry. But I am fascinated about the themes that come up & am keen to read the rest before the Netflix series comes out!

AnnR I'm guessing the author isn't a fan of literature. 8mo
batsy @AnnR It appears so! But an interesting claim for him to make, because inevitably he produces literature to convey the magic and wonder of science in his novels 🙂 8mo

A pick with caveats. It's good, just not the book I wanted it to be.
Wow does he put the science in sci-fi! There are intriguing ideas here but there's a tonne of "telling" and Wenjie is the only real character: the others are little more than pegs to hang ideas on. I zipped through its 400 pages but I'm not sure there's enough *story* to make me want to read the subsequent volumes. If I don't actually care what happens, what's the point, right?

Ambitious, mysterious, challenging, and unsettling describe this landmark sci-fi soon to be adapted by Netflix. This unique take on first contact explores science & technology, the development of civilizations, and, most of all, what happens when people give up on humanity. Character is somewhat sacrificed to high concepts here, and I found myself thinking of Sophie‘s World but with video games and physics instead of postcards and philosophy.

I think audio is the wrong way to go with this book. The narrator 's voice was robotic and emotionless which made the story extremely hard to pay attention to.
I am interested to see how Netflix turns these storylines into a comprehensive show. The core of the story is very interesting, and the end of this book wove the storylines together expertly.
The overall book is probably a pick but this audio didn't do it justice.

This is true, hardcore, badass sci-fi. Someone in my IRL book club loaned it to me and I'm so glad she did.

It's the beginning of a trilogy that centers on what happens when humans make contact with life from another planet. The political background added so much angst to the story, and there's so much actual science used that it made my nerd heart happy.

Cixin Liu‘s award winning SF novel (the first in a trilogy) rises above dull characterisation and inconsistencies in plotting in part due to excellent translation by Ken Liu (who provides some context via footnotes), but also by the way the story uses both the horrors of the Cultural Revolution and the three-body problem from orbital mechanics to ground the rest of the plot. It held my attention but I don‘t know if I would automatically read on.

This book does an excellent job of being exactly what it is, which is an incredible story told through hard science. It doesn‘t have much literary merit but that‘s okay because that‘s not goal. Science geeks will love it but people like me will appreciate it more on the screen than on the page. Either way, it‘s an impressive story. 🚀

A few years ago, a fellow wedding guest raved about this series & now thanks to the #ReadAroundTheWorld challenge, I finally started listening to this science fiction book set in #China! While the audio performance is smooth, I have to admit this story relies on a lot of telling- and some sections made my eyes downright glaze over… I had a hard time connecting with the characters, but there are some tantalizing ideas in this alien invasion story!

Of course, before I listened to part two of this, I “re-listened” to this first part and was left very puzzled because I felt there were things in it I didn‘t hear when I listened to it the first time – about two years ago. And it turned out, this impression was true, I first listened to the audio play and not to this unabridged version.

In a way, I liked this even more than the audio play because you learn more about the Trisolarians.

This was so good, and got me to actually read non stop for 2 days. The plot was super intriguing and I kind of enjoyed that it was more about the concept and story than the characters in it. The first half was my personal favourite bit, but although the latter half feels like a lot of exposition in one go, it did help to set the stakes and frame of the trilogy. I would recommend this to friends.

Recommended to me by my aunt. This was a really interesting book! Science fiction translated from Chinese. The book starts out during the Cultural Revolution and includes several helpful footnotes for context. The story is very compelling, even though I didn't really understand what was going on or what the overall plot was going to be until about halfway through the book. Definitely looking forward to reading the other two books in the trilogy!

After seeing this recommended over and over and over, I was excited to read it. I went into it with no knowledge whatsoever. I wasn't expecting the history lesson that is the first half of the book. It is slooooow and the character building seems to take second stage to making sure you understand the politics. That said, it also ends abruptly.

MaddestMax ...The last 20 pages or so are fairly interesting and then it's just over. I believe in it's original publishing it was one book separated into 3 volumes, so I won't hold that against it. I'll read the next just to see how it plays out. It has potential. 3y

This book is a SLOG, but it has many fascinating themes and ideas and I really wish I had a book club to chat all about it. The authors notes at the end was really interesting and I think perhaps an example of self delusion. 3/5 stars, a lot of description, but interesting to read. Scientists are killing themselves, one goes undercover and discovers we aren‘t alone in the universe and the aliens are coming towards earth.

🎧 I enjoyed the science/tech/aliens. I felt the characters were there to be like Doctor Who companions ... a means for the Doctor (author in this instance) to convey his immense knowledge to the reader. Lame. No character depth.

The first 60% was very dry material. Then poorly written characters but that could be the translation.

VR game was ok but this was written 15 years ago (better by Stephenson) & doesn‘t drive the plot so .... ⭐️⭐️3/4
