As I have written in the past, The Three-Body Problem Series by Liu Cixin is one of my favorite book series of all time.
Recently, I came upon this article in the Wall Street Journal, which does a profile on Liu Cixin and discusses his prolific writing career. Although I have enjoyed reading his books, I do not know much about Liu Cixin himself, so I was curious about learning more about his personal beliefs/background.
In the profile, it discusses the inspiration of Liu’s writing. Many people and fan theories I have read suggest that his work is based on China-America relations, and this theory does seem to make sense; however, Liu disputes this notion and says that he is not trying to put any hidden messages within his writing.
Overall, Liu’s background as a Chinese science fiction writer is truly unique, and it is great to learn more about his career and his passions. He is a science fiction geek, and it seems like he is really dedicated to his craft. If you are a fan of the Three-Body Problem series or want to learn more about Liu Cixin, I would highly recommend giving this article a read (only 5 minutes or so!).
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
