Publisher's Summary

From Cixin Liu, the New York Times best-selling and Hugo Award-winning author of The Three Body Problem, comes a new science fiction masterpiece in Supernova Era. 

In those days, Earth was a planet in space. In those days, Beijing was a city on Earth. On this night, history as known to humanity came to an end. Eight light years away, a star has died, creating a supernova event that showers Earth in deadly levels of radiation. Within a year, everyone over the age of 13 will die. And so the countdown begins. Parents apprentice their children and try to pass on the knowledge they'll need to keep the world running. But the last generation may not want to carry the legacy of their parents' world. And though they imagine a better, brighter world, they may bring about a future so dark humanity won't survive.

Starts off well but ...

The premise is fascinating and I was hoping for an interesting read. However the very masculine take on things was very disappointing. It's given me plenty of food for thought though!
The narrator of this and Liu's other works is very flat, I would hesitate to chose him again unless it was a 'must read' book.

An insight into Chinese thought

If this book is typical of those from Chinese authors then it serves as a window into how the people of that country think. For that reason this and the other books from this author are useful and in a way interesting.

The book itself is to be blunt awful. It reads like a bad children’s book. The concept is flawed, the plot is underdeveloped and the characters lack any depth at all.

Yet is recommend it for that window into there thought. For that it does have some value.
