朋友安利：My friend highly recommended this book to me, he said it was the most gripping story he had ever read in his entire life. So just out of curiosity, I bought the trilogy on Amazon.
And I have to say, my friend is totally right about it. No wonder people say it is the most popular science fiction in China. I mean, the whole story is full of imagination, and the best part is, you don’t have to be an expert in science or have any specialist knowledge to understand and appreciate the story.
I’m impressed by the author’s way of telling the story, I mean, he grabbed me from the very start, and it was just impossible to put the book down.
What he wrote about is not just about science and technology, it’s also about philosophy, humanity, history and psychology. So you see, this book has a profound meaning.
Like I said, what appeals to me the most is the way he wrote the stories. He came up with quite a few new concepts and assumptions about the universe. So I really admire his wild imagination. And the whole book is about the fight between human beings and other creatures, I mean, aliens, from the outer space, but there’s no description of any battle at all. Interestingly, however, we could still feel the tension and cruelty of the war.
It’s fair to say, the writer is truly a genius. It took me a whole week to finish reading the book, but I have to say, it’s totally worth my time.
I heard there would be a screen adaptation of the same name released soon. I’m pretty looking forward to it, ‘cause I really hope special effects in the movie could display the vivid imagination in the book.
