I constantly feel like I should like Larry Niven's books more than I do. The science is top-notch and the technology he envisions is consistently fascinating. But the actual storytelling itself always fails to interests me.

This books fits right in. I love the descriptions of the Ringworld itself and all of the associated tech (Slaver stasis fields, General Products hulls, etc). But the actual story came close to boring me. I just couldn't get that interested in it.

Maybe it just needed to be co-written with Jerry Pournelle.
