Overview

A modern science fiction classic, Larry Niven's Ringworld won the Hugo and Nebula Awards for best novel in 1970. Now this SF classic is adapted into a thrilling manga adventure by Robert Mandell and Sean Lam.

In Ringworld: The Graphic Novel, Part One, two-hundred-year-old human Louis Wu is recruited by a two-headed alien named Nessus to join him, a catlike warrior alien named Speaker, and the infinitely lucky human Teela Brown to explore an alien artifact.

They find a Ringworld, a ribbon millions of miles long built around a distant sun. The civilization has fallen into savagery, though, and after crashing into the Ringworld, Louis must come up with a clever plan to get back to known space, hundreds of light years away.

I bought this thinking that it was the original Ringworld Novel by Larry Niven and when I started to read it discovered that it was a "STUPID Comic Book" While there IS notation on the title that it is a "graphic novel", it is small to the point of being unnoticable. If anybody is looking for the actual novel, DO NOT PURCHASE this one.

For some reason, I am unable to load this Nook book into my device - every other title I have bought works fine, but this one simply will not appear on my Nook Simple Touch.

The Ringworld graphic novel came out... it appears... without a fanfare, despite being one of the most celebrated of science fiction books. I am an avid collector of comic books and this slipped right past me. Anyways, this was a joy to read, and it was nice to finally see someone bring Ringworld to life. It is all bound in a neat little book and features great manga style artwork. All Ringworld fans are sure to eat this up.
