Sarah Broadhurst's view...

I can’t believe this series has been running for more than 30 years, one of the great Science Fiction series of all time.
Comparison: Greg Bear, Stephen Baxter, Isaac Asimov.
Similar this month: None but do try Steph Swainston and Ian McDonald.

If you like Larry Niven you might also like to read books by John Wyndham, Peter F. Hamilton and Ben Bova.

Synopsis

Ringworld's Children by Larry Niven

The Ringworld is dying.

And this time even Louis Wu - captive of the hyper-intelligent alien Tunesmith - may be unable to save it. Even if Louis can escape he will then have to survive in a galaxy ravaged by interstellar war and deadly political intrigue. For the Ringworld is no longer a secret and entire civilisations now battle to control its power.

The victorious race that conquers the Ringworld will conquer the galaxy ... and no one will be able to stop them.

But Louis Wu is going to try.
