Okay, I always liked how the Lufia 2 intro created intrigue, but having beaten the game, I realized that one of the characters in the intro is never really explained and barely mentioned again. So, goodbad?
Man, I haven't thought about ringworld in a long time. Good sci fi classic, for sure. I actually heard on NPR that The Three Body Problem was the first chinese science fiction novel to ever win the Hugo Award, so I'm sure it'll be fantastic. I'd love to hear your review of it when you finish.
Totally! I loved the character development and how Liu can blend historical fiction with hard sci-fi. The translation is really solid, too. Everything is really compelling. I immediately ordered the second book in the series, and if that's not an endorsement, I don't know what is.
