it was ok

This sequel to Ringworld was largely disappointing when compared to the original. The sense of wonder and adventure was muted, and although the character's internal conflicts were amplified at times, they seemed to function more as plot devices than actual character development. The plot seemed much more contrived, and at the climax of the book, I found myself not particularly caring about the moral crisis faced by the characters.

The sexist elements were also much more prominent in this book than in Ringworld, and I found them much more offputting.
