Really good performance by the narrator Tom Parker. Good story, fast moving not slow or dull. Classic Niven and a classic sci-fi read. It feels like it ends too soon, the mark of a good read....
All the characters played well off of each other. Hard to have a favorite.... The most unusual was Teela Brown...... Very unusual girl!
I will look and see what else Tom Parker has read. He did a very good job.
The end is a bit abrupt, I guess I have to read the sequel to get some answers. I was going to do that anyway.
Wonderfull series with well thought out ideas. Larry Niven even adapts the books in response to real world calculations and discussion on the stability pf the ring world, with such efasis on attention to detail ots hard to avoid thos book and the series.
I listened this but the second time and found that it was not as well written or interesting as I had remembered. The narrator was pretty rough at times to listen to. And the story was sometimes hard to follow. Niven had some great ideas but the narrative and writing we're definitely the weak point.
I love this story and enjoyed listening to it. However, I wasn't really happy with the narration. The audio quality sounded like it was recorded 30 years ago, not bad or hard to hear just kind of lo-fi. Less than what I've come to expect from audible books. The narrator had a slightly posh lilt to his voice that I didn't feel was well matched with the tone of the book, though his performance was good otherwise.
