The universe of the Three-Body Problem: Fandom Book

William Kergroach

This collector's edition gathers everything that can be said about the work of Liu Cixin, the author of The Three-Body Problem, adapted for television. "The Three-Body Problem" by Liu Cixin, the first volume of a eponymous trilogy, is a groundbreaking science fiction novel that immerses readers in a universe blending physics, technology, and sociology. Initially published episodically in 2006 before its full publication in 2008, this book explores concepts of orbital mechanics and the "N-body problem," using these metaphors to examine relationships between characters and civilizations. Praised by critics and audiences in China, where it became a bestseller and revitalized interest in science fiction, the novel also achieved international success. Its adaptation into a television series by Tencent Video in China, and later by Netflix in 2024, demonstrates its global reach. Beyond its commercial success, this trilogy is acclaimed for its innovative ideas and universal themes, exploring subjects such as interstellar communication, the consequences of discovering extraterrestrial civilizations, and the ethical dilemmas posed by technological progress. Themes of morality, anthropocentrism, the aestheticization of science, and the reinterpretation of history are at the heart of this trilogy, offering readers a reflection on the human condition and our place in the universe.
