    Uite asa se scrie o povestire SF de 50 de pagini. Recomand.P.S.Nu am cautat nod in papura detaliilor stiintifice din carte, dar- nu se pomeneste niciun cuvant despre varstele inaintate la care ajung pamantenii. Pur si simplu se zice tam-nesam si 100 de ani mai tarziu si personajul ramane acelasi.- sacrificiul facut de oameni la finalul cartii nu are sens ori cu ei, ori fara ei, tot un pustiu in care nu aveai ce bea si ce manca ramanea adica ceea ce au lasat pe planeta murea oricum.

    This short novel is a real gem, it's a fun and thought provoking read from an interesting and obviously skilled Chinese author. It's been translated beautifully because there were no hints of translation at all that I could detect. The story details themselves are relatively standard sci-fi ideas, but it's the 'human' aspect that impressed me, and Liu presents humanity interestingly in the light of the alien invaders. I was a little reminded of the work of John Scalzi and his Old Man's War unive [...]

    Liu Cixin es,, hoy día, mi escritor favorito de Ciencia Ficción. Retoma la mejor ciencia ficción de maestros como Asimov para exprimir lo mejor en cada novela. Ciencia Ficción profunda que te transporta directamente al futuro para plantear dilemas o posibilidades que no podríamos imaginar sin su aporte.Devourer es un cuento breve sobre cómo la humanidad intenta sobrevivir al ataque de una civilización más avanzada que se acerca para devorar la tierra. Magnífico relato con un final a la [...]

    Could have been a lot better. Not as gripping as some other of his stories, but not as bad as Curse 5.0

    A great short read from Liu Cixin, about an alien species travelling the Milky Way, raiding planets of their water and minerals to keep their generation ship going. This bears quite a few of the hallmarks of Liu's writing style. Incomprehensible aliens, humanity's futile attempts to defend from a threat that they cannot fully understand, large time-scales, and a human protagonist that thinks outside the box when compared to the mob mentality. In this case, a seemingly cold-hearted army major who [...]

    -Interesante propuesta de un autor todavía no demasiado famoso.- Género. Novela corta. Lo que nos cuenta. Las fuerzas militares espaciales de la Tierra (UNEPF) entran en contacto con una estructura cristalina de manufactura alienígena que resulta ser un mensaje de advertencia sobre la “inminente” llegada a la Tierra de un gigantesco vehículo espacial de más de cincuenta mil kilómetros de diámetro, una nave generacional tripulada por reptiles gigantes que lleva diez millones de años v [...]

    One of my favorites of Liu Cixin's works. Multi-fold plots, one after another, keep surprising you, even after you think the ending is doomed.There's a sequel to this novel, Nebula of Poems, but unlikely available to you English readers unfortunately, because it's too much language dependent (full of Chinese ancient poems). After everything is set, Fangs brings a worm poet to visit their overlord. The visit ends up with a total disaster to the devourer's world

    Interesting idea, but it read like an Outer Limits episode rejected for being too costly. I'm not sure how much of that is just something dropping due to the translation. Thankfully it was short so I could get through it without focusing on what didn't work for me and could focus on what did. Definitely recommend the book as a filler-type of book.

    Devourer is a short novel that plays fast-and-loose with the laws of physics, and eschews the detailed technological explanations found in much of contemporary science fiction (Seveneves, Kim Stalney Robinson's Mars series, Singularity Sky, etc). It feels much like reading the older and more pulp (but still idea-focused) science fiction that I grew up with.

    It was ok. I realise that it is a translation, but the dialogue still felt a little forced and I found it unlikely that the one guy would remain so collected while everyone else panicked (repeatedly). Having said that, I liked the message the story imparted. It successfully put humanity's minuscule importance in the scope of time/space in to perspective.

    Demasiado forzado para mi gusto el origen de la raza alienígena, pero sin tener en cuenta eso, no deja de ser un gran relato que habla sobre la naturaleza humana y plantea el siempre interesante primer contacto con otras formas de vida inteligente.

    My first read of Liu Cixin work. I am very impressed. Will definitely read something else from him.

    Another alien invasion. This time a giant tyre in space, crewed by dinosaurs, out to loot the Earth. Cool.

    This Sci-Fi novella (~50 pages) was a pretty enjoyable read. I have no complains about the translation. If you have a little time, definitely pull this one off the shelf.

    Great short stories, one and all

    A fantastic short story, simple but yet thought-provoking. They cannot translate this guy's stuff fast enough for me!

    Gunn
    Very quick read and quite enjoyable because of its originality. Different take on the "impending doom" of the Three Body Problem. Perfect for a 1hr plane flight.

    Brayden Harris
    Amazing story with a bizarre twist!
