    Have you ever worried about your memory, because it doesn't seem to recall exactly the same past from one day to the next? Have you ever thought that the whole universe might be a crazy, mixed-up dream? If you have, then you've had hints of the Change War.

    Lots of ideas but no finishing point. The story just fades away with no satisfactory conclusion.

    In this first collaboration by science fiction masters Larry Niven (Ringworld) and Gregory Benford (Timescape), the limits of wonder are redrawn once again as a human expedition to another star system is jeopardized by an encounter with an astonishingly immense artifact in interstellar space: a bowl-shaped structure half-englobing a star, with a habitable area equivalent to many millions of Earths…and it’s on a direct path heading for the same system as the human ship.

    Would you try another book from Larry Niven and Gregory Benford and/or Zach Villa?

    Story was not at the same level as Ring World and ended without warning while not finishing any of the story lines. I wish I had known this was a part one of a series. I will not buy the next installment if it ever comes out.


    What could Larry Niven and Gregory Benford have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Finished the stories


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Ok, not great


    What character would you cut from Bowl of Heaven?

    You could cut any, it would not have changed anything.


    Any additional comments?

    serious waste of my money
