Ringworld is yet another remind that I really love science fiction. Not always because of the characters or story lines, but often it is the unique paradigm or idea that I would otherwise never have thought. Ringworld fits into this category. Although it is a good story one, with good characters, it’s really the concept of a long-lost, forgotten world, build in a ring that grabbed me. I had to know what it is, who built it, why it exits, etc. Larry Niven doesn’t answer all of these questions, but that might be just as well, because my imagination gets to fill in all of the blanks.
Ringwold is a must read for sci-fi fans. It’s a reasonable quick read, with an element of mystery. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
