Visit Known Space and you won't want to leave!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
The short stories in Crashlander are wonderful examples of Niven at his best. They're humorous, brimming with imaginative ideas, and, refreshingly optimistic about humanity's future.
What other book might you compare Crashlander to and why?
Known Space books like "World of Ptaavs", "Ringworld", and "Protector", as well as the Dream Park series come to mind for showcasing Niven's vivid imagination and optimistic writing.
Did Christopher Prince do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
Prince's narration was so bad it would have ruined some of the stories had I not remembered the written version I'd read years ago so I knew how they were supposed to go!
He misread words, trampled on witty phrases, and repeatedly emphasized words wrongly so as to make the following text unintelligible.
A shame really--he has a pleasant voice, but his reading was sloppy, thereby damaging the stories.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No extreme reactions other than disappointment at the poor narration.

I love the story, but narration was poor
I love this 'universe' created by Larry Niven. Sadly the spoken dialog is colorless.
