    In this first collaboration by science fiction masters Larry Niven (Ringworld) and Gregory Benford (Timescape), the limits of wonder are redrawn once again as a human expedition to another star system is jeopardized by an encounter with an astonishingly immense artifact in interstellar space: a bowl-shaped structure half-englobing a star, with a habitable area equivalent to many millions of Earths…and it’s on a direct path heading for the same system as the human ship.

    Story
    What would have made Bowl of Heaven better?

    Believable characters who behaved as professional adults in tough situations, instead of wide-eyed children on a lark.


    What didn’t you like about Zach Villa’s performance?

    More than a little over the top. Often laughable.


    What character would you cut from Bowl of Heaven?

    Cut them all and start over.


    Any additional comments?

    If you removed the random sex scenes you would have a passable (not good) story for 6-year-olds.
