Kurzbeschreibung

30. März 1997
Come back to the Ringworld . . . the most astonishing feat of engineering ever encountered.  A place of untold technological wonders, home to a myriad humanoid races, and world of some of the most beloved science fiction stories ever written!

The human, Louis Wu; the puppeteer known as the Hindmost; Acolyte, son of the Kzin called Chmeee . . . legendary beings brought together once again in the defense of the Ringworld. Something is going on with the Protectors. Incoming spacecraft are being destroyed before they can reach the Ringworld.  Vampires are massing. And the Ghouls have their own agenda--if anyone dares approach them to learn.

Each race on the Ringworld has always had its own Protector. Now it looks as if the Ringworld itself needs a Protector. But who will sit on the Ringworld Throne?

"Niven's work has been an intriguing and consistent universe, and this book is the keystone of the arch. . . . [His] technique is wonderfully polished, his characters and their situations are nicely drawn . . . wraps up (maybe) a corner of a very interesting universe."
--San Diego Union-Tribune

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

In Ringworld and Ringworld Engineers Larry Niven created Known Space, a universe in the distant future with a distinctive and complicated history. The center of this universe is Ringworld, an expansive hoop-shaped relic 1 million miles across and 600 million miles in circumference that is home to some 30 trillion diverse inhabitants. As in his past novels, Niven's characters in The Ringworld Throne spend their time unraveling the complex problems posed by their society. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Synopsis

Louis Wu, two hundred years old but still considering himself a young adventurer, becomes one of the first humans to set foot on the Ringworld, and odd events follow closely behind as he contends with the destruction of incoming spacecraft and a large gathering of vampires.

1.0 von 5 Sternen I thought it would never end 3. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Ringworld and Ringworld Engineers were each a triumph of science fiction, earning Larry Niven the awards and accolades of his peers and fans. Ringworld Throne was not even a whipping of the proverbial dead horse, as the Ringworld concept is still as fresh and untapped as it was over 20 years ago. It was simply a very bad book.
Characters from the first two books put in an almost secondary appearance, being overshadowed by poorly developed and disinteresting new characters. Plot lines were introduced and abandoned, while miniscule issues were examined in nauseating detail. While I thought the book would never end, it eventually did, leaving the "main" characters in the exact same situation the book started in. Niven apparantly didn't want to close any opportunities for cranking out additional books.
As Larry Niven has been a favorite author of mine since I was literally a child, I have eagerly awaited each and every new novel he has published. I therefore feel qualified to state that the quality of his writing has been on a steady downward spiral for about a decade, culminating with the latest "Destiny's Road", a truly abysmal book.
One more thing Larry: The incessant oversexing of every character has become tedious in the extreme. If you want to write eroticism, go ahead, but the ad nauseum "and then they had sex" plot developoments isn't winning any praise.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Smucked 18. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
The first half, I found really quite engrossing, if oversexed and lacking a satisfying conclusion. I quite enjoyed the reading, until it dawned on me that the book was ending without anything really happening. It was silly in parts. The sequences about the fighting protectors - as seen from the point of view of various webeyes - reminded me of sf TV which is too cheap to put its protagonist right in the action, so it has him looking at a small display of it instead (think Star Trek). This lent a disposessed feeling to the entire second half.
Really, TRT struck me as two short stories smucked together, with references to one another hastily pasted between chapters to raise the pretense of unity. But there was none. (What did the massing vampires have to do with the second half, anyway? Precious little.) Characters that we might have cared about are summarily dropped after Part I; the characters from Part II that we began to care about are summarily dropped when the book ends. This strange format prevents the novel from having any real punch to it.
A neat read and an interesting expansion on life under the Arch - but without that magical power of 'Ringworld'.

Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
"Ringworld Throne" was... okay; not horrible, not great. Youabsolutely must have read "Ringworld" and "Ringworld Engineers", since"Throne" assumes that you are familiar with the Ringworld, who built it, Louis Wu, puppeteers, etc. (Okay, it would all be rather complicated to recap at this point... but books that are part of a series should be labelled as such, darnit!) "Throne" also suffers a bit from really being two short novels rather than one long one: an expedition against a vampire nest, told from the POV of Ringworld natives, and then more adventures of Louis Wu and the Hindmost. The first part was mildly interesting but had the feel of being an adapted RPG adventure. The second part moved *fast* and I'm still not sure it all made sense. And there's really too much _rishathra_ -- don't species have any other ways to say hello -- and too many conversations cut off because someone had to go to sleep. Still, it was a readable read; Niven's obviously having some fun, and there are some interestng new looks at the races of the Ringworld. If you're a big Niven fan, or if you enjoyed the other two books, this one is probably worth getting.

1.0 von 5 Sternen poorly written and terribly confusing 25. Februar 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
As a native of Brasil I had few oppotunities(before internet age) of knowing great SF authors.It was something of a God's gift when, back in 1982 , by chance ,I had the opportunity of reading the entire Known Space series and , as the years went by ,the other Niven`s books.If something really changed my intelectual life was the depth , coherence and (yes) empathy that Niven's characters , plots and technological inventions inspired in me. So I felt duty-bound to write and say to all would-be Nivens's fans:keep away from this book!The plot is so confusing that even I who`ve been rereading the Known Space series for years didn`t manage to follow it.The writing is uncharacteristically poor and at the end I felt like something in me had been...well,maculated.Please,Niven,remeber all the joy you caused and refrain from spoiling the greatest pseudo-universe ever created in Science Fiction with books like this.

1.0 von 5 Sternen I Hated this book! 6. Juni 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
Whatever happened to Larry Niven? When I first got into science fiction about15 years ago, it was Larry Niven's stories I always went back to after reading something terrible, just to remind myself what great stories were like. Does anyone else still remember the feelings they had as they read Footfall, The Legacy of Herot, Lucifer's Hammer or the first Ringworld novel? I sure do, and it was incredible! But let me tell you something; the gig is up. After reading this piece of trash, I couldnt bring myself to touch another Larry Niven work for months. And then when I did, it was a book that was even worse: Children of Beowulf (or whatever its called). I'd like to make a deal with Mr. Niven. If you promise to delete these books from the publisher's catalog, and NEVER speak of them again, I promise to spend my money on your next book. Deal?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excelent reading
Yet again Larry Niven sells the storyline well very good reading. actually I thought I'd said enough but it seems the program demands even more words where less is enough.
