RINGWORLD’S CHILDREN by Larry Niven (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
“Niven jams enough ideas for several novels into each one he creates.” (Seattle Times)
Explorer Louis Wu, an Earth-born human who was part of the first expedition to Ringworld, becomes enmeshed in an interplanetary war that threatens to tear the Ringworld apart forever. Now the future of Ringworld lies in its children.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Audie®-winning narrator, Barrett Whitener. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
“Great story-telling is still alive in science fiction because of Larry Niven, and his finest work is the Ringworld series.” (Orson Scott Card)
