    What made the experience of listening to The Ringworld Throne the most enjoyable?

    I enjoy knowing more about the amazing place that Larry Niven created.


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

    I enjoy his "Known Space" books, and think his works are very entertaining.

    Story
    (403)

    Thousands of years after an entire colony mysteriously disappears, antiquities dealer Alex Benedict comes into possession of a cup that seems to be from the Seeker, one of the colony's ships. Alex and his assistant, Chase Kolpath, follow a deadly trail to the Seeker, strangely adrift in a system barren of habitable worlds. But their discovery raises more questions than it answers, drawing Alex and Chase into the very heart of danger.

    Shannon Peterson says: "Great mix of sci-fi, mystery and adventure."
    "Mesmerizing far-future fiction"

    Story
    Would you listen to Seeker again? Why?

    Yes, and I already have listened to it multiple times. It is a fascinating concept.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the long timeline imagined in this story. The idea that thousands of years in OUR future, our own future (in near centuries) will be ancient history.


    What does Jennifer Van Dyck and Jack McDevitt (Introduction) bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Having an understanding about the foundation of the book provided additional perspective as the plot unfolded.


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

    The moment that the protagonists discover what really, finally happened to the lost colonists, is the clear culmination of the book.
