Publisher's Summary

The Ringworld is a landmark engineering achievement, a flat band 3-million-times the surface area of Earth, encircling a distant star. Home to trillions of inhabitants, not all of which are human, and host to amazing technological wonders, the Ringworld is unique in all of the universe. Explorer Louis Wu, an Earth-born human who was part of the first expedition to Ringworld, becomes enmeshed in interplanetary and interspecies intrigue as war, and a powerful new weapon, threatens to tear the Ringworld apart forever. Now, the future of Ringworld lies in the actions of its children: Tunesmith, the Ghould protector; Acolyte, the exiled son of Speaker-to-Animals, and Wembleth, a strange Ringworld native with a mysterious past. All must play a dangerous role in order to save Ringworld's population, and the stability of Ringworld itself.
Blending awe-inspiring science with non-stop action and fun, Ringworld's Children, the fourth installment of the multiple-award-winning saga, is the perfect introduction for readers new to this New York Times best-selling series and for long-time fans of Larry Niven's Ringworld.

Distracting narration.

Mispronounced words, ridiculous voicing of characters. Narration is just plain terrible. Acolyte sounds like a silly version of the cowardly lion. Really detracted from what would otherwise be a good addition to the series.

Great sequel but deserves a better narration

Ringworlds Children is as enticing as Ringworld, and I've been a fan of Ringworld since it's original release in the 70's. I won't spoil the ending for anyone here but it was excellent, you won't be disappointed. I have heard better narrations though and would buy this audio book again if a better narration was made. Still, it's great sci-fi.
