It’s been twenty years since the quixotic and worlds-weary Louis Wu discovered the Ringworld. Now he and Speaker-to-Animals are going back, captives of the Hindmost, a deposed puppeteer leader. With Louis’ help, the Hindmost intends to regain his status by bringing back such extraordinary treasures from the Ringworld that his fellow puppeteers will have to be impressed. But when they arrive, Louis discovers that the Ringworld is no longer stable—and will destroy itself within months. To survive, he must locate the control center of the legendary engineers who built the planet. His quest becomes a wild and gripping venture blended with the mysteries and spectacular technologies that only Larry Niven can conjure.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The Ringworld Engineers has all the imaginativeness, convincing detail, and narrative vivacity that have come to be associated with the works of Larry Niven. Furthermore, it answers a lot of questions that have been tantalizing his readers for a long time. Most highly recommended!” Poul Anderson
“Adventurous exploration of a mind-boggling landscape.” Publishers Weekly
“This rousing sequel to the classic Ringworld continues the adventures of Louis Wu and Speaker-to-Animals on that fantastic planet.” School Library Journal
“When I finished The Ringworld Engineers, I cleared my calendar for a week, sat down, and reread every word of the Known Space cycle from scratch, then reread TRE. It was worth the effort, and left me staggered by the breadth and scope of Larry’s vision…If you count yourself as a true friend of Larry Niven, race right out there and get this one.” Analog Science Fiction Magazine

Overall Performance
Narration
Story

great book, well voiced!

Characters are realistically voiced, even including the anatomical differences affecting Protector speech.

Story is excellent, Louie Wu is still a force to be reckoned with.
