Summary

The Trisolarian fleet has left their home world and will arrive in four centuries' time. But the Sophons and their extradimensional emissaries are already here. This is the motivation for the Wallfacer Project, a last-ditch defence that grants four individuals almost absolute power to design secret strategies, hidden through deceit and misdirection.
Luo Ji, an unambitious Chinese astronomer, is baffled by his new status. All he knows is that he's the one Wallfacer that Trisolaris wants dead.

Where is the third book in this trilogy?

I really enjoyed this and the three body problem. However I can't find the third book on audible which is very frustrating. What's the issue audible? I wouldn't have bothered getting these books if I knew I couldn't listen to the whole trilogy.

long winded but just about enjoyable

took a while to get used to the new narrator, but he did a better job all told. pretty heavy going for me, but had to see where the story led.

Forces you to reflect

A great piece of work that forces you to reflect about humanity, science, space and all of it.

A gem

This is the kind of book you always hope for when you open up that first page. This was the book I never knew I needed. A classic outside of the western culture bubble where I usually find my reading material. I was so glad that I had the opportunity to read this. This was a rarity. Exceptionally clever, thrilling, a single book exploding with enough ideas and ambition to rival even the longest fantasy series out there.
