    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The reader


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a reasonable follow on to the original story, and contained a lot of good plot twists.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Paul Michael Garcia?

    Tom Parker


    Was The Ringworld Engineers worth the listening time?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    I will continue with the series, but may avoid the ones with Garcia with his gayness, and his gross lack of connection with the material.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If it had Been explored in more depth, and had a decent ending.


    What could Orson Scott Card have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    End it properly.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Rig


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Very interesting concepts for concetualizing time travel, but left totally incomplete. When I finished the first book, and went to the next to discover that it was the last, I knew then that I was in for a disappointment. After finishing the second and last book, I couldn't help but think that the author must have come up against a publisher's deadline, and been forced to cop out. Very disappointing.
