The Integral Trees, by Larry Niven


To complete my series of gigantic covers this week, I give you The Integral Trees, by Larry Niven. I've never actually read this book, but I remember seeing it in the Queen Anne Library as a child, and the cover has fascinated me ever since.

Anyway, that is all. Have yourselves a wonderful weekend!

Interesting. Looks a bit Peter Pan-ish.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Agree with Josin. It does look like Peter Pan. Have a great weekend.

You need to pick it up sometime.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I thought it was a retelling of Peter Pan based on the cover. I've never heard of it.

You have to read it, Matt, and tell us if it's any good. :D

Yes, you're right. This makes me want to check out what the story's about. Good covers are SO important. Have a great weekend, Matt.

OMG, I loved The Integral Trees. Definitely not anything like Peter Pan. I don't remember the plot too well, but I remember loving the book. (Sorry. It's been 20+ years since I read it.) And now I need to go find myself a copy. Thanks, Matthew. =o)

I think I saw that vest at the discount store.

The title makes me think mathematics are part of the central plotline, because I'm probably reading it wrong.

LOVE LOVE the Integral Trees!
I'm with Alex, you should pick it up some time. it's a quick read

Haha, I recognize this cover! Because I did the same thing at the library as a kid. We're like, "haven't read the book but I've always liked this cover" twins. Is that a type of twin?

Nancy Thompson said...

Covers are everything! Especially to a kid. I didn't start reading until I was 13. Hate to think about all I missed.

Who did the artwork? It has a Michael Whelan feel to it.

Andrew Leon said...

I have that book, but I've never read it.

Writer Pat Newcombe said...

How fabulous! What a stunning picture! Never read the book but the cover looks tempting.

Angela Brown said...

With a cover like that, I can see why it would catch anyone's attention. I wonder if it has to do with Earth conservation importance told in a fun yet dark way?
