You can certainly tell why this novel won the 2015 Hugo Award for best novel; such an excellent work of Science Fiction.

Complex Chinese sci-fi that was at times confusing and convoluted. That said, there was still a payoff to wading through the scientific jargon and reading of the numerous characters that populated the immerse narrative by virtue of discovering a unique and conceptually brilliant alternate form of reality that blurred the lines between alien life-form and virtual reality. I would've liked more closure to the book but am pleased there are additional books that follow on from here.
