Kathy The Three-Body Problem by Liu Cixin. Rated 5 Stars.

One of the best sci-fi books that I have read in years. The story is about first contact with an alien race. It asks the question should we welcome first contact or be wary of it.

The story is told by two protagonists. Ye Wenije, a physicist, experiences the worst of China's Cultural Revolution of the 1960s. She has lost all hope in humanity. Wang Miao, a nanotechnology engineer, infiltrates a mysterious virtual reality game while investigating a spate of sucides among China's scientists. The game immerses him into a world ruled by the unpredictable movement of its three Suns. Thus the name, The Three Body Problem. Can the problem of the chaotic movement of the three suns be solved (view spoiler)?

This book is the first of a trilogy. I can't wait to read on!
