    When the spacecraft Discipline reached the double-star system of T3 and LeVoy's Star, its crew discovered that an immense doughnut-shaped gaseous envelope had formed around a neutron star. Though it had very little usable land, the Smoke Ring had evolved a variety of life forms, most of which were edible and all of which could fly.

    A User says: "Great Book, Bad Narrator"
    "Too much description."
    Overall

    This novel has so much description that it makes you lose interest. So much so that you forget there is a plot, let alone figure out if you like it. The constant description of the surroundings makes the story seem like it is from the point of view of a UN Peacekeeper, accurately told but does not enagage you in the story. This is the only audiobook that I have heard which should have been ABRIDGED. The abridged version probably would be 2 hours long. I love Larry Niven books, but I cannot believe he wrote this one! Part of the problem may be the reader voice. Wait for an abridged version, it should have been a short story.
