This Hugo-nominated work is a classic of Niven’s Known Space saga.

Phssthpok the Pak had been traveling for most of his thirty-two thousand years. His mission was to save, develop, and protect the group of Pak breeders sent out into space some two and a half million years before.

Brennan was a Belter, the product of a fiercely independent, somewhat anarchic society living in, on, and around an outer asteroid belt. The Belters were rebels, one and all, and Brennan was a smuggler. The Belt worlds had been tracking the Pak ship for days, and Brennan figured to meet that ship first.

He was never seen again—at least not by those alive at the time.

    " Phssthpok the Pak was by any definition an epic hero. Too bad Mankind is so frightfully independent! Protector is perhaps my favorite book in Larry Niven's Known Space universe. I have read more than a couple paperbacks to death over the years, and now have a kindle version which should last longer. But my new love is audiobooks in my earbugs while I work, so I purchased a copy from audiobookstore.com. It was my first purchase from them, and I didn't know what to expect. Needless to say I was very pleasantly surprised! The narration easily adjusts itself in my mind to the countless readings I've done of the book over the years, and really brings it to life! Well done! "

    " The Protector was a genius. Great classic sci-fi with great ending. "

    " Just love the idea that humans are meant to undergo a metamorphosis and how it neatly fits in with human physiology after age 35 or so. "

    " Awesome quick read. Probably most interesting if you've read the Ringworld or other Known Space books, but will stand on its own. "
