    It’s been 20 years since the quixotic and worldsweary Louis Wu discovered the Ringworld. Now he and SpeakertoAnimals are going back, captives of the Hindmost, a deposed puppeteer leader.

    Kevin d. says: "Good Story, Wrong Narrator. Way Wrong."
    "Not as good as first book, but quite good"

    Story
    Where does The Ringworld Engineers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    About an eight out of ten. I'll definitely listen to it several more times in the years to come, whereas some audiobooks need a long time in-between.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Ringworld Engineers?

    Nothing really stands out since it was all about equally good. I did particularly like the fight at the end, however.


    What about Paul Michael Garcia’s performance did you like?

    A good reader who doesn't oversell but gets the tone just right almost every time.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The look at addiction in the future was interesting and I've thought about it many times over the years.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of my go-to books for working out, shopping, cleaning. That sort of thing. Some books demand your undivided attention, but this is one that is long and interesting, but I can do other things at the same time.

    I'd rank it about equal to the last four Harry Potter books for its consistent flow and engagement of the listener. There are battles and action-focused sections, but its mostly about character interactions and science.
