Death’s End - Liu Cixin

WARNING might contain spoilers

The third and final installment in the Remembrance of Earth’s Past trilogy. Where the first one - The Three Body Problem - was still rather straight forward scifi with an orient perspective, the next two press on the hard scifi button harder and the deep end gets deeper. This one picked up where the second book left off. Again my inherent racism unfamiliarity with Chinese names got the best of me - I got lost multiple times on the characters. Xe? Ji? Li? But the book was certainly long enough to get you back on track. The symbolism used (sword bearers etc.) was still rather foreign but it made it all the more interesting.

The scifi certainly gets awesomely bat shit crazy in the end, which was to be expected. Dimensions come and go, millions of years are jumped.

4/5.
