Not sure how it would work as a stand alone but it ties in so many loose ends its a must read for and Niven fans.
Achilles: What a great bad guy just when you get used to the insane puppeteers being your friends then one comes along so much crazier than the rest and crazy because he's the most human like. Easy to identify with and fear that Achilles inside us all
His Mispronunciation of the main characters name kept pulling me out of the story. I'll probably skip any books I see his name on, but i rarely look at the name of the reader in picking a book
Kept getting mad every time Tom Wiener said Loo-iss instead of Loo-Wee, Niven was pretty specific about how to pronounce his name in the first few book, event spelling it out phonetically by having aliens screaming LOO-WEE-WOO. To have a human mispronouce a name that the smallest of alien has figured out is an insult to the entire race. Hope he runs into some Louis Armstrong fans or maybe finds himself being throttled in a major Missouri city.
