    Step Fletcher, his pregnant wife DeAnne, and their three children move to Steuben, North Carolina, with high hopes. But Step's new job with a software company turns out to be a snake pit, and 8-year-old Stevie's school is worse. As Stevie retreats into himself, focusing more and more on a mysterious computer game and a growing troop of imaginary friends, the Fletchers' concern turns to terror.

    Overall

    I bought this thinking Sci Fi. If you are looking for a Sci Fi, this is not the book. But I quickly got caught up in the story. The characters in the book are Mormon in faith and this being a suspense/mystery book about faith, it include aspects of the Mormon faith. I am not a Mormon, and if you can get past that part of the book, this is a great book. The ending was a total shock and surprise. It is one of those books that make you think about it after you have finished reading it. This is a well written book.

    Welcome to Ringworld, an intermediate step between Dyson Spheres and planets. The gravitational force created by a rotation on its axis of 770 miles per second means no need for a roof. Walls 1,000 miles high at each rim will let in the sun and prevent much air from escaping. Larry Niven's novel, Ringworld, is the winner of the 1970 Hugo Award for Best Novel, the 1970 Nebula Award for Best Novel, and the 1972 Ditmars, an Australian award for Best International Science Fiction.

    "A good book"
    Overall

    This is a good book. If you are into the science part of science fiction, then this book must be a staple. If you are looking for a great read however, then this book will be a little slow and dry. I did find the idea of a ring world interesting and more feasible than a full Dyson Sphere. But that is not the only concept the author is pushing. The story was a little slow and drawn out. If you are a hard core Sci Fi fan, then this is a must read.
