    The Ringworld is a landmark engineering achievement, a flat band 3-million-times the surface area of Earth, encircling a distant star. Home to trillions of inhabitants, not all of which are human, and host to amazing technological wonders, the Ringworld is unique in all of the universe.

    Would you listen to Ringworld's Children again? Why?

    I love the story and plot lines, however Barrett Whitener should have listened to the earlier volumes if for no other reason than to stay consistent on how to pronounce character's names and the names of objects. It is a little irritating to hear these mispronounciations over and over again.
    Another complaint is the speech patterns of some of the characters is all wrong for their personality and again, as they were in earlier volumes, for consistency sake.
    Except for these issues, it's OK, but I preferred the hard copy version to the audio book. Usually it is the other way around.

    Any additional comments?

    The audio book was good, but when I put it on CD, Audible split it into seven minute tracks regardless of the start or ending points of the chapters. Often it would split it in the middle of a word or sentence. This not only makes looking for a particular chapter difficult, it is also annoying when they split a sentence between CD's. They need to split by chapter, not just because seven minutes has gone by. This was very annoying. As this was my first audio book by Audible, I'll wait and see if they do it on the next one before I decide if I'm going to keep my subscription or not.
    The material and performance by the authors was otherwise excellent.
