In The Dark Forest, Earth is reeling from the revelation of a coming alien invasion-in just four centuries' time. The aliens' human collaborators may have been defeated, but the presence of the sophons, the subatomic particles that allow Trisolaris instant access to all human information, means that Earth's defense plans are totally exposed to the enemy. Only the human mind remains a secret. This is the motivation for the Wallfacer Project, a daring plan that grants four men enormous resources to design secret strategies, hidden through deceit and misdirection from Earth and Trisolaris alike. Three of the Wallfacers are influential statesmen and scientists, but the fourth is a total unknown. Luo Ji, an unambitious Chinese astronomer and sociologist, is baffled by his new status. All he knows is that he's the one Wallfacer that Trisolaris wants dead.

Review of 'Hamlet' on Goodreads

1 star

Maybe has a gimmick worth reading, but only if written by an author with more respect for his readers' intelligence. This feels like it's talking down to you all the time it's dragging you through its characters' pain and violence and dumb quips and hollow insights.

(I should know better than rely on Best-of-the-Year picks chosen by poll.)

Review of 'Hamlet' on Goodreads

3 stars

More accurately, “The Cigarette in the 20th Century: An American Political History.”

While not as broad in scope nor in geography as I would have liked—and known if I’d read the description more carefully—I felt like I learned quite a lot from this book. Though US-centric, I thought it worthwhile; not sure if its insights are its own or simply new to me, but I liked to consider aspects of its history like government by partly-private associations, the complicated decisions further complicated by party philosophies, money, changing expectations of policy and health and etc.
