    An unusual and wonderful book. Full of intriguing ideas. Beautiful writing. Was sad when the book ended.

    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.

    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.
