Larry Niven is a writer of terrific hard science novels. In "Fallen Angels" he also shows again that he is a political animal with very Libertarian points of view. I first read this novel back in the1990's, way before Owl Ghwore and his ilk made piles of money preaching to the foolish and the indoctrinated about "global warming". Read this outstanding novel, then read it again.

  • Niven and Pournelle wrote this back in the 70s but it holds up incredibly well. Michael Flynn co-authored with the dynamic duo on this and its portrayal of science fiction fandom alone makes it worth the read. The current state of our space program stands in waning contrast to even the modest capabilities showcased in the novel, and it serves as a cautionary tale in that should we abandon space--which is possible as the International Space Station is due to be de-orbited in 2024 as this is written--what we may lose may one day cost us more than we can bear (microwave power satellites, naked dances on glaciers, and life saving discoveries made in orbiting laboratories included).

    The characters are vividly drawn and the interweaving of the fictional culture--the government, fandom, and 'Angels'--sucks you right in. No spoilers here, but if you are a fan of Niven and Pournelle in particular, or science fiction in general, you won't be disappointed.

  • Well written book alluding to climate change. The citations regarding causes and potential changes will alter some to change their opinion on climate change. Well written and apparently well researched. The storyline is set in a time in the future. What happens when the 'Greens' get all of what they want without regard for the human industry and personal freedom. Very enjoyable book.

  • Had a first edition of this years back and it has gone missing. Had to buy another copy to re-read it.

    Also a great book by Walter Dean Myers by the same title

  • No, this isn't Fahrenheit 451. It isn't trying to be. It's a love-letter from three successful and popular SF authors to SF fandom... and, in the process, they manage to poke a lot of holier-than-thou environmentalists in the eye with a sharp stick. Lots of fun, lots of recognizable characters to fen of a certain age. Probably worth four stars, but I'm giving it five to bring the average up from the Grievous Gus types who have reviewed it.

  • I picked up this book because this is probably one of the best pieces of "fun to read" sci-fi I have ever had the pleasure of reading. It's a collaborative work... but it turns out nicely. Basically... it's a sci-fi pulp... but one put together by several very good sci-fi authors... and in the end... it feels like an all-star movie... maybe like a Pulp-Fiction but a sci-fi version (I know... this is a totally different thing... but bear with me). It has the feel of so many unique characters and so many crazy happenings that... somehow... it just feels plausible. The characters feel real. They behave like normal people would behave. I guess what I'm trying to say... is that they're some what humorous. It's a great read. And I'd recommend anyone looking to just enjoy a good read.

  • This book is classified 'Science Fiction' but the science is mostly real. I found the story engaging and relevant. At the heart of the story are the issues of 'Global Warming' and 'Greenhouse Gasses'. Especially, the media faery tales on the subject, as well as the popular pseudo-scientific hype. A quite good read for all those who are fed up with mainstream self-proclaimed science experts.

  • It has many of the classic Niven touches, some wrong guesses on futurism (car faxes and tape casettes in approx 2020 technology?), unclear how much of the writing and storytelling was Niven's.
