The Wandering Earth

We rated this book:


Internationally renowned sci-fi author Cixin Liu has released a new collection of ten novellas. With the solar system about to be devoured by helium flash form the Sun, the Coalition government constructed Earth Engines. Now the Earth is on a centuries-long journey to Proxima Centauri. The God Civilization’s spaceships are breaking down. The Gods came to Earth looking for something to eat and a place to stay while living out their golden years. A traveler takes a pair of eyes along with him so those who cannot go can experience the journey. These stories and more are Liu’s ode to the Earth. They can all be found in his new book, The Wandering Earth.

If you are only familiar with Lui due to his award-winning novels, then you are in for a real treat. As China’s most popular sci-fi author, Cixin Liu is often compared to Arthur C. Clarke. His new book contains ten exciting novellas that explore Earth’s past, present, and future, in addition to human nature and social inequalities. Liu’s speculative fiction pushes the boundaries of technological imagination, and it is no wonder that five of these stories are China Galaxy Science Fiction Award winners. All these stories have been previously published and are now available in one collection. This would be a great addition to any sci-fi fan’s library.
