I didn’t get far enough to say that there is anything wrong with this book. (Hence, why I’m not actually rating it.) In fact, a lot of the science stuff was fun but I was just not connecting with it. Plus, a more exciting sci-fi book came in from the library and I’ve been enjoying that more already and I’m only 55 pages in. (The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet)
Here’s the summary though because some people in my Goodreads group really enjoyed it. It just wasn’t for me:
“1967: Ye Wenjie witnesses Red Guards beat her father to death during China’s Cultural Revolution. This singular event will shape not only the rest of her life but also the future of mankind.
Four decades later, Beijing police ask nanotech engineer Wang Miao to infiltrate a secretive cabal of scientists after a spate of inexplicable suicides. Wang’s investigation will lead him to a mysterious online game and immerse him in a virtual world ruled by the intractable and unpredicatable interaction of its three suns.
This is the Three-Body Problem and it is the key to everything: the key to the scientists’ deaths, the key to a conspiracy that spans light-years and the key to the extinction-level threat humanity now faces.”
