This book I liked more than the first since it gave more information on the history and physics of the Ringworld.  It also explored the larger Ringworld universe a bit more, which was nice to hear about.  I was surprised at they way they killed off a few of the characters and the huge focus on sex.  I was surprised at the way the book started and the way the Puppeteer was handled in the book.  It didn’t seem at all consistent with the way a puppeteer would act given the aversion to danger.  The ethics of the books was interesting as well but only minimally so.
