Ringworld, by Larry Niven

I know this is a scifi classic, but I wasn’t that impressed. I love the idea of the ringworld itself, and some elements were interesting, but somehow the central focus of this book ended up being a ditzy girl finding true love in a loincloth-wearing barbarian. The book also lost me several times with discussions of technology, theory and more–topics I can often follow in books but didn’t seem particularly well-introduced or explained here. Not a scifi favorite.

And yes, I am back from New York. A real post soon.
