Remembrance of Earth’s Past Trilogy
WOW...I’m about 75% through The Dark Forest. These books are immersive to the point in my daily life I reflect on the happenings in the book. I almost feel like Luo Ji with his novelistic creation that’s how immersive these books are.

I’m assuming the third one is just as outstanding?

It is. If the first two books made you think, the third is going to mind-frick you.

The third one is my favorite. Rereading the series now actually. Halfway through the Dark Forest myself. Some of the ideas and science presented are absolutely nuts.

Did yall have any exposure to string theory, physics in higher dimensional space or anything like that prior to reading?

Aside from Sheldon Cooper on the Big Bang Theory no zero previous knowledge.

Other than casual knowledge picked up from watching the History Channel/Science Channel, no.

I'd read a few nonfiction books that went into some of it but had no real grasp on most of it. Cixin does a great job of "dumbing it down" for a guy like me.

Awesome, I was going to give them to a friend to try out but I didn't know if they came across as too dry or if some of it was too far out there for people not used to that. I'm certainly not an expert, but have read a bunch of popular science stuff so it wasn't totally out of the blue.

I read them all recently and now I’m doing an audible listen through.


The single best series I’ve ever read. I agree that I often lose myself in thought about the book and things that can easily carry over to real life.


Enjoy The Dark Forest because Deaths End is going to change your outlook on the world even more so. (In a good way)
