    Come back to the Ringworld - the most astonishing feat of engineering ever encountered. A place of untold technological wonders, home to myriad humanoid races, and world of some of the most beloved science fiction stories ever written.

    The human Louis Wu; the puppeteer known as the Hindmost; Acolyte, son of the Kzin called Chmeee: legendary beings brought together once again in the defense of the Ringworld. Something is going on with the protectors.

    Aerindel says: "Should have stopped at the second book."
    "well read, but the story seems to ramble"

    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."
    "Enjoyable"

    Story
    If you could sum up The Ringworld Engineers in three words, what would they be?

    enthralling, listenable, enjoyable


    If you’ve listened to books by Larry Niven before, how does this one compare?

    not as encapsulated as the original "Ringworld" seeming to wander a little, but as I understand it, this was written to answer fan questions about Ringworld science tech. The reader isn't quite as differentiated in character voices as the original's reader, but he does a good job.


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

    nothing outstanding, but reads well and gives character to the book


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

    not really
