Publisher's Summary

This Hugo-nominated work is a classic of Niven's Known Space saga.
Phssthpok the Pak had been traveling for most of his thirty-two thousand years. His mission was to save, develop, and protect the group of Pak breeders sent out into space some two and a half million years before.
Brennan was a Belter, the product of a fiercely independent, somewhat anarchic society living in, on, and around an outer asteroid belt. The Belters were rebels, one and all, and Brennan was a smuggler. The Belt worlds had been tracking the Pak ship for days, and Brennan figured to meet that ship first.
He was never seen again - at least not by those alive at the time.

WHAT THE FINAGLE

THE ROMANCE OF SPACE
As mentioned by several others the concept is fairly cool. The telling not so much. The first hour goes over pretty good, but goes down hill from there. This comes from the age when science fiction was a lot slower. I lost patience in the sixth hour.
MINATURE GOLF
I must also admit that Weiner has never been one of my favorite narrators. He is not terrible, just not inspiring.
