I had never read any works from a modern Chinese author before, and now having completed Cixin Liu's trilogy, my only regret is I didn't know it existed sooner. The mix of history, space, science and tech, was right up my alley, and I was absolutely blown away by the story. It was totally absorbing and best of all, plausible. As part of the tech field, it was exciting to imagine the abilities made possible by tech I was reading about in the trilogy coming to life some day.

I give props to the translator who did a fantastic job, and the footnotes in this first book were a great addition to historical understanding of places and people.

I don't get why this book is only currently getting 2 or 3 stars out of 5 here on PBS. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would!
