    The Ringworld is a landmark engineering achievement, a flat band 3-million-times the surface area of Earth, encircling a distant star. Home to trillions of inhabitants, not all of which are human, and host to amazing technological wonders, the Ringworld is unique in all of the universe.

    What did you like best about Ringworld's Children? What did you like least?

    Great to continue the saga. Wish I could stand to listen to the narrator's voice.


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

    In print, a good story.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Turned it off after five minutes. Painful to listen to.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Maybe.


    Any additional comments?

    Would love to hear this book read by someone else. Anyone else. Of the 50 or so Audible recordings I've listened to, this is the only one that was unlistenable due to the narration.

    Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction.

    B.J. says: "Good, but with reservations"
    "Very engaging and involving"
    Overall

    I loved the characters in this beautiful and heartbreaking story. I was sad when it ended because I cared so much about the everyone in the story. Well worth your time and attention.
