My second book review- A look at Larry Niven’s fantastic Ringworld & his “Known Space” series
Will you do another one in the future ?

Written in 1970, this award winning book is considered a classic. I read the book decades ago, but now I’m listening to the audiobook for free at the link https://youtu.be/nLjIc1DU8HE. It spawned a few sequels, and there is a body of literature by multiple authors that take place in this “Known Space” universe created by Larry Niven. I recently finished the four audiobooks for the “Fleet of Worlds” series which are prequels to Ringworld, and I highly recommend them. I think that they are at least as good as Ringworld.
I very much like listening to audiobooks before going to sleep at night. It relaxes me.
It's not a great story, but the one saving grace is what makes all sci-fi entertaining, and that is the single, wonderful, fantastic idea of the Ringworlod itself…
It isn't the first story in the Known Space series
The reviews of it on Goodreads are pretty bad. I had to avoid it all together.
thx for the review
