Very glad to hear it, Srancy! Keep reading; "The Dark Forest" is really good, also.

Three Body Problem is really a good book imo. I'll hopefully be getting around to Dark Forest later this year.

Really Toll The Hounds. Started strong, but then almost immediately hit a little snag.

I think TTH is the best of all of them! If I stopped reading at the end of TTH, I think I would have been happier lol. DOD is the worst in the series, and TCG was good but not great.

Dark Forest broke into my top 10 most enjoyable books so I'd say I liked it a bit!

Excellent! I loved the conversation between Da Shi and the protagonist at the end where the protagonist explains dark forest strategy. Chilling and eye-opening.

Long time, no see...miss ya guys. Ive actually picked up a book for the first time in many months. Dark Age, by Pierce Brown is the choice. About halfway through and loving it, so far. A continuation of the previous books, but this one picks up the pace quite a bit. A definite rec.
“No. I am your end. Before your eyes I will put your seed to the knife. I will quarter your carcass and feed it to the dogs. Your bones I will grind to dust and cast to the winds. I will strike down those who speak your name or the name of your fathers, until ‘Yursalka’ becomes as meaningless as infant babble. I will blot you out, hunt down your every trace! The track of your life has come to me,

I'm reading "Supernova Era" by Liu Cixin (Cixin Liu in English style). It was written in 2004, and the English translation was just published. Looks to be another great read from the Chinese master of high-stakes civilizational survival.
