Bowl of Heaven by Gregory Benford and Larry Niven

In spite of the title, this is not a dish of death by chocolate ice cream.  In some what stereotypical Niven fashion,  a starship comes upon an immense artifact (ala Ringworld) on their way to explore a new planet.

The artifact is a shipstar, no typo, a ship being powered by a star full of new sights, strange creatures and great adventure.   In spite of the comparison to Ringworld, the book isn’t just Ringworld warmed over.   The premise is somewhat similar but it ends there.  

There are three groups of protagonists as the story plays out.   Each group has it’s own flavor and message.   The story stops somewhat abruptly and lets you know there is more to come. 

I enjoyed it.

I recommend it.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
