About the Author

Larry Niven received his B.A. in mathematics in 1962. His first novel, World of Ptavvs (1966), was a success and launched his career. Niven has won five Hugos and one Nebula award, testimony that his colleagues in the science fiction world respect his work. Perhaps Niven's most well-known creation mostrar mais is Ringworld, a distant planet that may be taken as a metaphor for Earth, as it was once great but has since fallen into decay.

A modern day retelling of Dante's 'Inferno'. Doesn't name names like the original but well worth reading. This is my second time reading the book.

What would happen if a comet was discovered coming close to the Earth? What if close to earth was wrong and chunks of the comet hit the earth? What could we expect in the aftermath? How screwed up can some people be? How would you prepare for the end of the world?

Welcome to the Stronghold. Welcome to the cannibal army. Welcome to the nuclear power plant. Welcome to Hammerlab above the Earth, and everything and everyone in-between.

I read this as a young adult. I reread it in the last month. I am just as impressed with this book now as when I first read it. It made both Nivens and Pournelle my favorite authors… (mais)

Gah! This is like reading Larry Niven's notes for a novel instead of a novel itself. Technological things go unexplained. Dialogue is never more than a single sentence long. Settings are so sparsely described as to be almost nonexistent. And if you haven't read any of the previous stories featuring the main character (Hanville Svetz), most of this book will probably make zero sense to you.

At about 20% of the way through the book, I gave up on it.

This book made a big impression on me in high school, some mumbledy-mumble years ago. I wonder if it holds up.
