Reminder: The Redemption of Time: A Three-Body Problem Novel comes out tomorrow
The synopsis contains minor spoilers for those who haven't read the Three Body Problem novels.
quote:


In the midst of an interstellar war, Yun Tianming found himself on the front lines. Riddled with cancer, he chose to end his life, only to find himself flash frozen and launched into space where the Trisolaran First Fleet awaited. Captured and tortured beyond endurance for decades, Yun eventually succumbed to helping the aliens subjugate humanity in order to save Earth from complete destruction.

Granted a healthy clone body by the Trisolarans, Yun has spent his very long life in exile as a traitor to the human race. Nearing the end of his existence at last, he suddenly receives another reprieve?and another regeneration. A consciousness calling itself The Spirit has recruited him to wage battle against an entity that threatens the existence of the entire universe. But Yun refuses to be a pawn again and makes his own plans to save humanity’s future…


This book started as a fan fiction that the author, Cixin Liu loved so much he allowed it to be published.

I got it, but I haven't started on it yet. I'm about halfway through Last Argument of Kings, and will start on Redemption after.

Ok, so I'm about 70 pages into the book. So far it is fairly interesting. It is a pretty straightforward narrative where Yun is telling the story of his captivity by the Trisolarans to AA as they are marooned on the blue planet.

It delves more into the Trisolaran society than the original Three Body Problem books did; going so far as to describe what the Trisolarans look like.
