    Welcome to Ringworld, an intermediate step between Dyson Spheres and planets. The gravitational force created by a rotation on its axis of 770 miles per second means no need for a roof. Walls 1,000 miles high at each rim will let in the sun and prevent much air from escaping. Larry Niven's novel, Ringworld, is the winner of the 1970 Hugo Award for Best Novel, the 1970 Nebula Award for Best Novel, and the 1972 Ditmars, an Australian award for Best International Science Fiction.

    "An entertaining but pointless romp"
    Overall

    Still wondering why I picked up this book. Although, it is a sci-fi classic, worth listening to once, perhaps, but I would've preferred to read it on paper, as I would have gone much faster. There wasn't really anything to really take the slower time to listen to the narration, I read this kind of books in diagonal and find it quite enough. (The abridged version must be even worse though.) By the end, you're left entertaining some thoughts about whether it is indeed possible to control or influence chance (there was a nice movie about this, "Intacto", with Max von Sydow, which treated this idea with better zest I though). But otherwise, it's a good reading, entertaining, but won't leave any indelible marks on your reader's psyche. I've almost forgotten it.
