After reading Part 1 (Ch.1-3) of The Three-Body Problem which follows the struggles of the Ye family during the Cultural Revolution of late 1960s China. Part 2 jumps 40 years to the story of Wang Miao (Miao Wang in the typical English order), a nanomaterials researcher in contemporary China.

  • Based on the treatment of the Ye family and Wang and their relationship with the government, how does Liu portray Chinese government in culture in both time periods?
  • How has China changed in those 40 years?
  • How has it stayed the same?
