The Three-Body Problem , Cixin Lou (2006)
I am somewhat conflicted by this book. One one hand I appreciate the POV of the author, coming from the PRC. It is a unique voice in science fiction. However, the actual science fiction part of the novel is disappointing, i.e. the evolutionary development of the aliens. Totally unbelievable if imaginative. But too much for this old anthropologist to suspend belief.
I give it a 5/10 for originality.
