Half a century after the Doomsday Battle, the uneasy balance of Dark Forest Deterrence keeps the Trisolaran invaders at bay. Earth enjoys unprecedented prosperity due to the infusion of Trisolaran knowledge. With human science advancing daily and the Trisolarans adopting Earth culture, it seems that the two civilizations will soon be able to coexist peacefully as equals, without the terrible threat of mutually assured annihilation. But the peace has also made humanity complacent.

I wish that the women in these books had some kind of character but that's not why people read these. everything wrong with the first two books is amplified here. no main theory is presented like in The Dark Forest. the story doesn't end, keeps going and going but it's very engaging.

Plum Kettle does her best not to be noticed because when you're fat, to be noticed is to be judged. She is biding her time at a job answering fan mail for a popular teen girls' magazine until she can afford weight-loss surgery. But lately she is being followed by a girl in outlandish clothes and combat boots.

the narrator was great! the story was great (until it just dragged on and nothing interesting happens and the author explains the painfully obvious over and over again and it's still not interesting)

I wish I came across more books like this.
