4.0 Review: The Three-Body Problem (Remembrance of Earth's Past Book 1 of 3)
The Three-Body Problem was originally written in Chinese and has been translated to English. I read the English translation, and I enjoyed it quite a bit.

The actual plot is as hard as it's possible for hard SF ...

3.5 The Three-Body Problem
I did like this book—and I very well might read the next one—but the physics and astronomy stuff was a bit much for me. How much is real theory? How much is made up theory? How much is proven and not theory? I have no idea! But there are some very clever ideas in here—dehydration, stable and chaotic...
