Cixin Lui is a master of Hard Science Fiction. "The Three-Body Problem" is an imaginative quest for universal truths. His characters are vivid and memorable. His stage is galactic in scope. I don't believe the phenomenon of computation has ever been described so well and so easily accessible for non-scientists. But computers occupy a minor part of the narrative. Humans play the lead role as they quest for truth and survival. Should humans yield to alien race with advanced technologies? Can humans save themselves and their planet from utter destruction? Read on... You won't regret it.
