Get ready for an adventure on a world from the brilliant imagination of New York Times best-selling author Larry Niven.

Wide and smooth, the Road was seared into planet Destiny's rocky surface by the fusion drive of the powered landing craft, Cavorite. The Cavorite deserted the original interstellar colonists, stranding them without hope of contacting Earth.

Now, descendants of those pioneers have many questions about the Road, but no settler who has gone down it has ever returned. For Jemmy Bloocher, a young farm boy, the questions burn too hot - and he sets out to uncover the many mysteries of Destiny's Road.

    " I always get this book and Glory Road (heinlein) mixed up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Zachary Stewart | 1/29/2014

    " Sorry, this one is bad. Pass. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia Given | 1/7/2014

    " Very interesting ideas with satisfying ending that rounds everything up nicely. However can be a bit slow to come around to that point where it all makes sense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charity Bradford | 1/4/2014

    " I liked this book and how I was able to follow this one person's whole life. It just didn't go anywhere, well, it did, but I got boggled down in the world. I just couldn't visualize it and that made it hard to read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Steven | 11/18/2013

    " Could not get into this one. Read about 100 pages and stopped. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 10/19/2013

    " Good story; the kind you have a hard time putting down. I had a hard time with the large number of strange names and the descriptions of the geography on this world, but maybe it's just me as I'm more of a visual person. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eppie | 9/6/2013

    " Story was really good, but the ending was abrupt and disappointing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John | 7/5/2013

    " Oh dear.. oh dear .... oh deary deary deary!!!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Miyamoto | 6/28/2013

    " surprisingly good for sci-fi "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 3/17/2013

    " I thought the story was ok, but I found some of the plot shifts confusing. It was like the reader needed, or was suppose to already have, a bit more information to make the story smoother and more comprehensible. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/14/2012

    " Read the first 100 pages or so before giving up because I was bored. Nothing interesting or compelling about the characters or the plot. A big disappointment after enjoying the Ringworld books so much! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenneth Flusche | 11/16/2012

    " Adult Fiction, read between the lines for US History "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Billie | 8/27/2012

    " Good book but seems to ramble a bit and at times had trouble following the story. Was bored by the long bits about hiding etc. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 2/8/2012

    " Enjoyed it but not nearly as fun as Ringworld. It was definitely creative though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scythan | 1/29/2012

    " I love this book. Very well written; I have re-read it twice, and it doesn't disappoint. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Harry | 12/27/2011

    " It was alright. Kinda confining story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 TheIron Paw | 12/14/2011

    " Again, Larry Niven creates a fascinating world with an exciting story of a lad trying to understand it. Great science fiction. "
