    Classic?

    This book has been greatly misplaced. It needs to be included in the classics section of every bookstore. It tells the story of the human species impeeding doom due to our over population. It also explores theories behind human thought. Is Teela Brown incredibly lucky, or is it Louis's delusionary vision of her? The rumor of her luck has spread and turned into reality by people's altered perceptions. This alienates her from society, placing her as some sort of a god. Although not as tradgic as the other titles I listed, Ringworld is an exploration into human thought as well as exploration into the great unknown.

    Originality, Character, & Superb Plotting

    Larry Niven is one of those few writers that I return to constantly. In Ringworld, he creates another aspect of his Known Space series. His expertise, not only in plot building, but characterization is rarely matched. To read Niven, is to develop a friendship with the people within the pages. Ringworld, like most of Niven's efforts, is a book that reads as well the third or fourth time as it did the first. I highly recommend this book, as well as any other in Niven's considerable body of work.

    Classic Novel of Hard Science Fiction

    This is a classic novel of hard science fiction-- it's the one that showed how it is done. This is an exciting adventure about exploration of a strange, enormous artifact in space with a mixed crew of human and aliens. If you like science fiction adventure, this is the classic
