The Gripping Hand – Larry Niven & Jerry Pournelle

While The Mote in God’s Eye is easily one of the best Science Fiction novels of all time, this sequel is barely worth slogging through. All the epic elements are lost, the few good ideas aren’t developed properly and it is just plain boring. Shame.

Note: In the United Kingdom it was released with the title “The Moat around Murcheson’s Eye”.
