it was amazing
bookshelves: sci-fi

This was the first Sci/Fi book I ever encountered. My dad read it to me when I was 8, and it was awesome. Happily, it's still awesome. New Niven.... eeehhhh, not so much. But as many readers have said, for science fiction? True science fiction? Best there ever was. King of alien species, alien thinking, and theoretical extremes.

Read Integral Trees, Flight of the Horse, The Patchwork Girl (really, any of the Gil the Arm stories), Neutron Star, The Kzin Wars. And don't forget Ringworld, or A Mote In God's Eye. In every single one will you find a sense of the profound. Current science fiction writers are hacks by comparison.
