Furthermore, it answers a lot of questions that have been tantalizing his readers for a long time/5(14).   The Ringworld Engineers is the sequel to Ringworld. In Ringworld, Larry Niven introduced us to the concept of a world made in the shape of an extraordinarily large ring encircling a star. In this book he gives us answers to questions we might not have even asked about the Ringworld, but that others apparently did.5/5(5).

IMPORTANT NOTE: For people new to the Ringworld series - Read “Protector” before you get “Engineers” (It fits between the first and second book) This novel is the answer to the riddle “Who Built the Ring and why” Note: The ’s Role Playing Game of Ringworld is based completely on this book.   Ringworld Engineers is the sequel to the science fiction classic Ringworld, by Larry Niven.

Queen of Sorcery (The Belgariad #2) .   The low rating is not for the book itself - Ringworld Engineers is classic Niven and required reading for any scifi fan. But this ebook rendition is awful, the worst I have ever seen. Missing words and phrases, punctuation missing and inserted seemingly at random, words so badly misspelled I couldn’t even figure out what they were supposed to be/5(53).

Get this from a library! The Ringworld engineers. [Larry Niven] -- Sequel to: Ringworld. Twenty years after discovering Ringworld, Louis Wu returns, the captive of a non-human race. To survive on the planet, which is no longer stable, he must locate the control. The founding engineers were long gone but left inexplicable constructions that were no longer maintained. There was a great sense of spontaneity, discovery and comradery. I wanted to revisit the characters and the Ringworld. But the Ringworld Engineers was just lame/5().
