    One thought on “Halka Dünya”

    1. A very interesting concept.BUT, I have to get on my soapbox for a minute. After reading a few of his books, I have to say that Larry Niven's attitude towards women, what they are like and what they are capable of, is sadly lacking. Though his male characters seem to be pretty well fleshed out (human--even if they are alien--fallible and interesting), his female characters are sadly one-dimensional. It seems to me that most the female character in his books are either clueless, idiot savants, hel [...]

    2. I started this book expecting an awesome experience -- it won the Hugo AND Nebula awards, after all.Too bad it was a hot mess. The smile is because the book was lighthearted.What to say of Niven's prose, other than that it is horrible? The dialog is stilted; often it is impossible to tell what the characters are talking about because their references are unclear or new information necessary to understand WTF is going on passes through the cardboard cutout/protagonist's head only after the page-l [...]

    3. I’d wanted to read this because I’m a fan of the Halo video games, and I’d heard that it was a big influence on those. I gotta say that I’d have liked it more if the Master Chief would have shown up and started chucking some plasma grenades around.Set in 2855, human Louis Wu is recruited by an alien named Nessus to go on a hazardous mission to explore a strange structure that rings a distant star. Another alien called Speaker-To-Animals from a warrior race apparently descended from some [...]

    4. Ringworld is definitely a sci-fi classic, a monumental achievement in world building. Any sci-fi aficionados who don’t like it should be ashamed of themselves.Argh! It’s never pleasant to go against the conventional wisdom but over at PrintSF (online SF discussion community) I see a lot of comments along the line of “I really want to like this book because everybody say it’s great, what am I missing?” I think a lot of people try too hard to like certain books and I don’t know why, it [...]

    5. I can't believe this won three big awards. The story is about as interesting as the trade war minutia of Episodes 1-3 of Star Wars. In non-geeky terms, not very interesting. Actually as I went out to buy a cup of coffee this morning I thought that if Larry Niven had teamed up with George Lucas the prequel episodes of Star Wars could have been totally ruined, and maybe episodes 4-6 could have been reworked too to make them completely insipid and unwatchable. How? Well, Larry Niven seems to be rea [...]

    6. Not much I can say about this. It blew my mind.In order for you to truly appreciate Ringworld you would have to mentally backtrack forty-odd years. Big Ideas in Science Fiction are a dime a dozen. Today.But in 1970…?Perhaps Niven’s vision upstaged his characters. Perhaps. But I could still lose myself on the ring. It fascinated me then; it fascinates me now. This novel made authors sit up and pay attention to just how big you could think if you really applied your imagination. Also, I’ve s [...]

    7. On Luis Wu’s 200th birthday, he is approached by Nessus, a quasi-equine alien species knows as Puppeteers because of the two heads sprouting from their backs that are tethered by strands of skin, to undertake a remarkable journey. Being 200 years old, Luis has seen his share of the universe, so he is a bit skeptical when Nessus asks him to join a force of beings to explore the mysterious Ringworld. So far so good. Enter the rest of the cast. First off, I have no problem with how any alien is c [...]

    8. Radio waves move at the speed of light. This is not particularly noticeable on Earth, but if you were at the sun, it would take eight and a half minutes for a signal to reach you, which would make a phonecall rather awkward. It would be even worse at the next closest star, Proxima Centauri, where messages take four years. Thus, the speed of light is the rate at which information moves, at which change change can propagate.But most people don't think, when watching Star Trek, that Captain Picard [...]

    9. I'm afraid this made me want to punch Larry Niven in the stomach on the behalf of all women everywhere. Along with people who aren't so privileged that life bores them with its comforts, but mostly on behalf of women. A 180 year old man sleeping with a 20 year old woman? Just so wrong, and it keeps going more wrong. He writes things about Teela like"Her lips, he saw, were perfect for pouting. She was one of those rare, lucky women whom crying does not make ugly."It is painfully condescending, ev [...]

    10. this book was silly. the ringworld was a cool idea, and the interplay between the species was intriguing, but there were a lot of strikes against this book.* anthropomorphic cat people that are fierce proud warriors; i imagine the furry contingent had a field day with this one* not much happens in the latter half of this book - mostly a lot of traveling across the ringworld* at several points there are lengthy sections where i'm unable to tell what's going on because i can't visualize the strang [...]

    11. I have a lot of faith in science fiction but this one dented it - it's a daft cartoon of a novel in which there's this really big, you know, I mean giant big big enormous, like, world, and these aliens go there, and they droop and mumble about in it, and it's really big, and one of them looks like a carpet and the other looks like a diplodocus, and the other like an old chinaman cause you got to have an old chinaman in your far future novels, yeah. It was showered with awards but i would have sh [...]

    12. The concept of a ringworld is wonderful - Niven's story, not so much, yet good enough to entice me back into after the mega-structure on't otherside of the universe is currently topical (if indeed, anyone could use the term 'otherside' when talking about our curving and folding universe). Great fun for sci-fi week here on .A Dyson sphere is a hypothetical megastructure that completely encompasses a star and captures most or all of its power output.TED Talk: Tabetha Boyajian · Astronomer. Tabeth [...]

    13. Larry Niven takes a lot of shit. A lot. Without ever reading a word of his before I have heard him called a racist, a sexist pig and a dolt. If the racist statements attributed to him are true, well, that is deplorable but everything I can find about them is 2nd or 3rd hand and seems to be of fairly questionable authenticity. Even in the worst case I can enjoy a Roman Polanski or Woody Allen movie so I should be able to enjoy a Larry Niven book right? He is notthat bad! As far as the sexism goes [...]

    14. This was a blast to read. It was great, escapist, old school science fiction at its best. It's a pretty light read, with fast moving short chapters all in single narrative. The story is a classic exploration tale taking place on an alien artefact that is one of the most amazing concepts ever imagined in my opinion. The Ringworld is an enormous artificial ribbon one million miles wide with the diameter of Earth's orbit. It's basically a partial dyson sphere. "Take Christmas ribbon, an inch wide, [...]

    15. I find it hard to believe anyone got through this one, let alone its whole legion of sequels and spin-offs.The Ringworld is such a cool concept but it's SO poorly described, I defy anyone to picture what the hell Niven is on about. It was black and on the horizon blue, a ribbon, several squares were hovering there like WHAT?! Take some time to do this thing justice, mate! We're gonna be spending a deal of time there It takes too long to get to Ringworld, then when they do, nothing happens. Plus [...]

    16. There's a word often bandied about when people discuss books, particularly fantasy and science fiction books, which often involve the creation of worlds unlike our own. That term is (perhaps unsurprisingly) worldbuilding. And if ever there were a paradigm case for worldbuilding, Ringworld would be it. The eponymous structure is not a planet but, for all intents and purposes, functions as one. With a simple concept and a little bit of physics, Larry Niven has a striking novum that's brand, settin [...]

    17. Being an engineer by nature, and by training (10 yrs at MIT), when I read this book (in the 1970s) I went supernova. Massive engineering on an unimaginable scale, made real by Niven. Fabulous!

    18. The world is coming to an end. A chain reaction of exploding stars at the galactic core threatens to swamp earth and most of known human space. What!? When? Oh in 20000 years or so. Whew, don’t scare me like that. So what’s the rush? Well, there’s no point waiting till the last minute. Or so the cowardly Puppeteer aliens reckon as they hit the panic button, pick up stakes, and make like a chook with its head cut off – make that two heads. Oh but wait, one brave (insane) puppeteer volunte [...]

    19. Niven's Ringworld idea is really, really cool. Cool enough that he got the Hugo for this book in 1970. I know he got the Hugo for the Ringworld concept, because nothing else in the book conceivably justifies it. Wading through the book was very difficult for me mostly because of Niven's Dirty Old Man Syndrome. That's the way I refer to his incredibly chauvinistic depictions of women. The protagonist is a 200-year old cynical man who manages to snag a 20-year-old, naive young lady as his sex-toy [...]

    20. I recently reread this and it's still delightful after all these years. Niven is so much fun because of his fascinating ideas, and the playfulness with which he approaches them. The ringworld is a beautiful work of art, technology, and imagination. Ditto time stasis fields, mirrored focusing sunflowers, using generated gravity as an art form, hurricanes shaped like giant human eyes. Even more fun are the glories of the Puppeteer home planets flying to the edge of the galaxy in a kemplerer rosett [...]

    21. I don't remember anything of the story, let me say at the outset. I think it was entirely forgettable.The only things I remember are the kzin - the huge catlike alien - and Ringworld itself. From an engineer's point of view, this world is an absolute delight: a ring circling a sun at the centre, a whole world existing on it; with shades provided at uniform intervals to simulate nightWhat I wouldn't have given to be part of the engineering team that designed it!

    22. The magic intersection point of the old and new styles of SF basically, Golden Age space opera with cool aliens, but also including sex. (The sex isn't with the cool aliens, in case you were wondering - that's James Tiptree Jr. you're thinking of). If you are an SF fan and have never been to the Ringworld, try and visit them some time! If you're not particularly into SF, well, these days Iain M. Banks does the same kind of thing better, so I would recommend reading "Consider Phlebas", "Player of [...]

    23. What is Ringworld?Ringworld is a curiously contradictory science fiction novel. For a novel so concerned with the finer details of the exact science of alien technology it also features some bizarrely pseudo-scientific fantasy conceptions. However, it's use of technology and its ideas are an indication alone as to why it should be read despite some major flaws which become more obvious as the reader delves further into the story.Larry Niven's novel is claimed as a major influence of the critical [...]

    24. Ringworld - a Young Adult book that exemplifies the key elements of technology-driven fiction, and so embodies the new generation of science fiction and SF writers. Ok, that may be how the review would start if this book were written in the 2010s. But Ringworld is from a different era (the 1970s), a different world altogether (pre-Microsoft Earth). What was then hailed as an innovative narrative style may now be viewed as stunted and disjointed. But for a young mind just opening to the wonders o [...]

    25. Executive Summary: This book is a lot of big ideas, and not a lot of depth of character or plot. If you like that sort of thing, you may enjoy this.Full ReviewThis book was a tough one for me. It makes it a tough one to review as well.I had been meaning to check this one out for awhile, but didn't make time for it. It ended up being one of the picks for July in Sword & Laser so I finally fit it in.I read it over the course of 2 weekends, which with the way I've been lately is a really long t [...]

    26. I liked this book, in fact I got hooked at so many parts. As I am a slow reader and me having finished this book in a couple of days should tell ya something. The book is mainly an exploration novel of another land during the earth year of 2850. The exploration of the Ringwold is magnificent and is detailed crisply into my imagination.It is also about the characters too; a great character building story I must say. In a way I found that the characters in the book and their interactions between e [...]

    27. An interesting mix of Sci-Fi tropes - Big Dumb Object (BDO) mashed up with failed civilization. Niven gets points for an interesting blend of human and alien characters, but unfortunately during large portions of the book they just wander around sightseeing. The female characters' roles were stereotypical at the time the book was written (almost 50 years ago as of this review) and will probably be insulting to the modern reader. Niven's prose leaves a lot to be desired as does the pace of the na [...]

    28. On balance, I do like Ringworld, or at least the concept of the ringworld. The idea is that a forgotten race of wildly talented engineers have built a complete ring around a star and outfitted it with gravity, atmosphere, vegetation, animals, and even sentient life. The scale is so vast that it's nearly impossible to comprehend. (The ring, Niven tells us, has the surface area of roughly three million earths. There are mountains thousands of miles high.) I give Niven a lot of credit for the thoug [...]

    29. Dudé entre el 3 estrellas ("like it") y el 4 ("really liked it") porque después de años (décadas) de escuchar loas sobre este libro famoso, esperaba una historia que me volara la peluca. Pero no.En las misma línea de ciencia ficción absurda/cómica/delirante de casi todos los libros del género que leí este año, encuentro que este no me gustó tanto. El final es muy bueno, sí, quizás lo que hace que me incline por las 4 estrellas en vez de 3, pero el contenido en sí no me gustó tanto [...]
