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.
