The Three Body Problem

Recommendation inspired by:
Questions no one knows the answers to - Chris Anderson

Why we love this book:

This is the first in a science fiction trilogy that has completely changed the way I think about the universe. Each book in the series is stranger and more profound than the last. I'm not going to say any more than that to avoid spoilers. This won the Hugo Award for best novel in 2015, for good reason.
