Three Body Problem (Liu Cixin)

Hard science fiction by a chinese author. Three books, three stories about the lifes of three different persons. Somewhere in there is extraterrestrial life hidden without ever encountering an alien. Somewhere in there is a glint of hope hidden in a dark and depressing view on humankind. Wonderfully written, offering a (for me) new angle to the Fermi Paradox and an totally different approach to science fiction than american/british authors.
