I haven't read anything sci fi for awhile..but do like sci fi if well written and the world building is realistic and not to over the top...I have been reading vampire and more adventure and fantasy like that lately but I read this and Loved it.. what a wonderful story and what cool but dangerous place! it was very imaginative to make a world like this.. and the book was very exciting.. Id love to read more about ring world.. and the characters were really well written. some books are so good its like your there.. and forget about the real world and this is one of those books.. I highly recommend it!
Larry Niven puts you in the cockpit while exploring an entirely mind bending new world. This book elicits the feeling that you're right there with the protagonists as they are the first to lay eyes upon something truly wondrous. It's definitely worth the read!
A Golden Age Classic, full of imagination and clever characterizations. A high science concept becomes the focal point of an interesting read. Recommended. I have no idea how such a voracious read as I has missed this book for 40 years!
Excellent text and a thrilling ride from cover to cover. I spent so much time trying to solve the secrets of the Rignworld, and the greatest joy is finding out there are no direct answers. I love a book that forces me to make my own conclusions.
