    Inhaltsangabe

    Writing separately, Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle are responsible for a number of science fiction classics, such as the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning Ringworld, Debt of Honor, and The Integral Trees. Together they have written the critically acclaimed best-sellers Inferno, Footfall, and The Legacy of Heorot, among others.

    The Mote In God's Eye is their acknowledged masterpiece, an epic novel of mankind's first encounter with alien life that transcends the genre. No lesser an authority than Robert A. Heinlein called it "possibly the finest science fiction novel I have ever read".

    one of my most favorite stories.

    while i love the story, there is one issue i have with the audiobook. The reader does not use a wide enough range of voices. many of the navy man sound alike.

    stale, outdated, lack of vision

    Book:
    Most books are an expression of the times in which they where created.
    This is very much the case in The Mote in God's Eye, which was published in 1974.
    Though some ideas might have been somewhat new and even thought provoking at the time, today's readers (2014) will find the depicted society terribly outdated.
    One could argue, that this might be deliberate, but I believe it is merely a lack of vision.

    The caracters are 2 dimensional and resemble stereotypes of the 1960.
    Cardboard cutouts, all of them. The Russian Admiral, The Brave Aristocrate, The Sientist, The Female Heroine, The Scottsman..

    Narator:
    LJ Ganser reads the book like an American sports commentator from the 50s. One could have brought some depth into the text and maybe even some life into the characters, but all we get is a "thrilling adventure" in a yankee twang.

    Personally I was quite disapointed.

    An old yet timeless look at first contact

    I knew next to nothing about this going in, but I was pleasantly surprised. Recommended!

    A real Larry Niven story.

    Amzing the plot, the fantasy, I loved it. As with most science fiction one can disagree with some details but it does not spoil the story. I hope there is coming a sequel.
