Ringworld's Children returns series protagonist Louis Wu to the titular world. Louis and his friend The Hindmost, an alien of the Pierson's puppeteer race, are prisoners of the Ghoul protector Tunesmith, a Ringworld native, who is deliberately provoking the warships that surround his world. All the star-faring races of Known Space have sent warships to the Ringworld, and they are already at the brink of war. If fighting breaks out, the near-indestructible Ringworld will be destroyed: dissolved by antimatter weapons.
The Ringworld series is so complex and ambitious that Ringworld's Children opens with a glossary and a cast of characters, inclusions that even many Known Space fans will need. Newcomers to Niven's artificial planet should start with Ringworld. --Cynthia Ward --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I thought the pacing was good.
Now he seems to be drearily trying to tie together the loose ends of most of his previous work, to little or no effect - just going through the motions.
Niven has come through with an interesting and delightful tale that brings full circle a number of story lines and characters.
This has been one of my favorite series ever and this book continued to tell ringworlds secrets. Always good to learn what Louis Wu is up to.Published 3 months ago by Tracey Wiley

Enjoyed the book. It follows the "family" of books in style and story, but I enjoy the fact that it stands on its own.Published 8 months ago by Claudia Castillo
