Three Body Problem, Liu Cixin

I’m hardly a sinophile, but having a sci-fi that isn’t US-focused is somewhat refreshing. It starts in ’67 in China during the Cultural Revolution, when 14 year old girls offed most of the professors, those that didn’t commit suicide themselves. So the Chinese military has to resort to employing undergrads in their projects.
Some fifty years later, and Chinese professors start to commit suicides en-masse again. This time because their worldview of fundamental physics collapses around them.
The chapters dedicated to a communist labor camp were interesting. The chapters of the Universe sending countdown to a particular scientist and the video game based on Warring Kingdoms were boring as hell.
