Leaving Earth, the crew of the spaceship Discipline were prepared for a routine assignment. Dispatched by the all-powerful State on a mission of interstellar exploration and colonization, Discipline was aided-and secretly spied upon-by Sharls Davis Kendy, an emotionless computer intelligence programmed to monitor the loyalty and obedience of the crew. What they weren't prepared for, however, was the Smoke Ring-an immense, gaseous envelope that had formed around a neutron star directly in their path. The Smoke Ring was home to a variety of plant and animal life-forms evolved to thrive in conditions of continual free fall. When Discipline encountered it, something went wrong. The crew abandoned ship and fled to the unlikely space oasis. Five hundred years later, the descendants of the Discipline crew living on the Smoke Ring no longer remember their origins. Earth is more myth than memory, and no recollection of the State remains. But Kendy remembers. And just outside the Smoke Ring, Discipline waits patiently to make contact with its wayward children.… (lisätietoja)

With so many characters introduced so quickly, i found this hard to start. Once i got going, it still had some big introductions. But in the end, it was a good story. ( )

Meh. Just not that good. The first book in this trilogy wasn't great, either, and this one was worse. Skip. ( )

The story here concerns the descendents of Earth travelers who, five hundred years earlier, chose to settle in an array of massive, free-floating trees that orbit a neutron star. During a particularly lean time, a small group is sent out to search for additional resources, and then an environmental disaster strikes...

By this point in their history, the tree people have lost most of their technology, and scientific knowledge is limited, so (like Anne McCaffrey's Pern novels) this is a science fiction adventure that feels a lot like fantasy most of the time. Still, there is plenty of hard science used to describe their strange environment and how it works, so it may satisfy both camps.

Characterization is not the novel's strong point. All of the characters are stereotypes - the bossy alpha male, the science guy, the cranky old guy, the inexperienced guy, the young girls with nice breasts... - and never move beyond that. I didn't care too much about any one of them. This is a book you read for the bigger concepts. Those ideas are interesting enough that I may read the sequel at some point. ( )

Another masterpiece of inventing a new world from Niven. In a gaseous ring surrounding a neutron star there exists free fall life forms which provide all the comforts humans could want. So the crew of the star ship Discipline mutiny and flee the ship leaving behind only one sentient being. Sharls Davis Kendy is a cyborg and so he is able to wait five centuries to track down the mutineers' descendants. ( )

Listened to this 7+45 hour book for an hour and a half; it never really gelled in my mind and I had better things to do then listen to "Charlie Brown's teacher." Put this one in the category of "did not finish." While the teaser held promise, it never developed. One must either be a die hard Niven fan or a dedicated sci fi nut to complete this book. I imagine that I'll look askance at Niven books after this one. ( )

This book is dedicated to Robert Forward, for the stories he's sparked in me, for his help in working out the parameters of the Smoke Ring, and for his big, roomy mind.

Prologue:

It was taking too long, much longer than he had expected.
Text:

Gavving could hear the rustling as his companions tunneled upward.

Wood snapped explosively, spattering Gavving with splinters as he leapt across the bucking, tearing bark. A million insects poured from a sudden black gap that must have reached a klomter into the heartwood. Gavving cried out and waved his arms through the buzzing cloud, trying to clear enough air to breathe. The tree was everything that was, and the tree was ending. If he’d stopped to think, his fear would have frozen him fast. He held to the one thought: Get the meat and get out! The nose-arm legs tumbled loose within a cloud of burning coals. One haunch was in reach. Gavving caught a line to pull it free of the coals, then jumped to catch it against his shoulder. Hot grease burned his neck. He yelled and thrust himself away. Now what? He couldn’t think in this end-of-the-world roar. He doffed his backpack, tied it against the nose-arm leg, braced against the pack, and pushed himself into the sky. Clouds of insects and pulverized wood half hid the shuddering, thundering tree. Dagger-sized splinters flew past. Gavving braced one of his jet pods against the pack and twisted the tip. Seeds and cold gas blasted past him. The pod ripped itself free of his hands, spat seeds into the flesh of his face, and was gone. His hands shook. Beads of blood were pooling on his cheek and his neck. He dug out his remaining jet pod and tried again, his tongue between his teeth. This time the pod held steady until it had gone quiet. The world came apart. He watched it all while his terror changed to awe. Fiery wind swept past him and left him in the open sky. Two fireballs receded in and out, until the home tree had become two bits of fluff linked by an infinite line of smoke. Awesome! Nobody could hope to live through a bigger disaster. All of Quinn Tribe must be dead…the idea was really too big to grasp…all but Clave’s citizens, and they’d lost Jiovan too, and who was left? He looked about him. Nobody? A cluster of specks, far out. He’d used both his jet pods, and now he was lost in the sky. At least he wouldn’t starve…
