    For decades, the spacefaring species of known space have battled over the largest artifact - and grandest prize - in the galaxy: the all-but-limitless resources and technology of the Ringworld. Now, without warning, the Ringworld has vanished, leaving behind three rival war fleets. If the fallen civilization of the Ringworld can no longer be despoiled of its secrets, the puppeteers will be forced to surrender theirs - everyone knows that they are cowards. But the crises converging upon the trillion puppeteers of the Fleet of Worlds go far beyond even the onrushing armadas.

    Colin says: "A fitting end to a great story from 42 years ago"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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


    Would you be willing to try another one of Tom Weiner’s performances?

    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


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.
