I just got my Amazon Kindle DX I bought for Bitcoins today! (Got it through http://spendbitcoins.com/
- great site).
So, now I'm deciding which book to start with. I read Niven's Ringworld last year, so I was thinking I'd go with the next in the series (The Ringworld Engineers), but when I looked it up at Wikipedia I noticed that there is more than 10 earlier books taking place in Known Space.
Did anyone here read them all or even a few? Basically I'm asking if reading the entire Known Space series first will add anything significant to the story of the Ringworld series.
I'm hoping you'll tell me to just go ahead and read the Ringworld Engineers, but on the other hand I don't want to miss out on something either...
My second choice is something else entirely - Santa Olivia by Jacqueline Carey (since I liked the Kushiel series a lot).
