Read it in school. Great short read for both experienced and new readers.
My favorite urban fantasy series. A wizard who is also a detective.
Read this ages ago - one of the many great Agatha Christie books that I still enjoying tremendously
Great characters and worldbuilding.
The book revolves around the idea of solving the three-body problem in physics, which involves predicting the motion of three celestial bodies in space.
The story is complex, and it combines elements of science, politics, philosophy, and cultural history in a way that is both fascinating and thought-provoking.
The characters in the book are well-developed, and their struggles and experiences are compelling. The pacing of the story is slow and deliberate, which allows for a thorough exploration of the themes and ideas presented.
Overall, "The Three-Body Problem" is an outstanding work of science fiction that will appeal to anyone interested in physics, astronomy, or the possibility of extraterrestrial life. It is a must-read for fans of the genre and an excellent introduction to Chinese science fiction for those who have yet to explore it.
An exciting, geeky book that takes readers on an amazing, thrilling journey through a dystopian future where the virtual world of OASIS has become humanity's only escape. The book is a real page-turner, with a simplistic story line that is easy to follow, yet still manages to be a fun science fiction adventure. I found the 80s references throughout the book to be so fun.
Fantastic world-building. This is part of a series, with a number of trilogies. I've read the first and enjoyed both the world building and the characters.
"The Lies of Locke Lamora" by Scott Lynch is a remarkable novel that follows the story of Locke Lamora, a skilled thief and con artist living in a city ruled by crime lords. The book is an excellent blend of action, suspense, and humor that keeps the reader engaged throughout.
Lynch's writing style is compelling, and his world-building is exceptional. The city of Camorr, where the story takes place, is vividly described, and the characters are well-developed and complex. The author has created a unique and intricate world full of magic, politics, and deception, making it a refreshing and enjoyable read.
The plot is fast-paced, and the story is filled with twists and turns that keep you guessing until the very end. The characters are relatable, and their banter adds humor to the book, making it even more enjoyable. Additionally, the book is not only entertaining, but it also delves into deeper themes such as loyalty, betrayal, and the consequences of one's actions.
Fun series- got a little tedious books 5-6, but not bad overall
This is another fantasy book I cannot help but recommend.
Its about a boy, discovering his powers, going to "magic-school", and many adventures, including dragons.
There is little to no romance.
The writing is so different from the others in the genre. I especially applaud the author's inclusion of diverse, non-white characters.(The MC has dark skin) . This was written in the 1960s, so fairly unusual for those times.
Ursula K. Le Guin has many other books that are also incredible.
