I haven't read anything sci fi for awhile..but do like sci fi if well written and the world building is realistic and not to over the top...I have been reading vampire and more adventure and fantasy like that lately but I read this and Loved it.. what a wonderful story and what cool but dangerous place! it was very imaginative to make a world like this.. and the book was very exciting.. Id love to read more about ring world.. and the characters were really well written. some books are so good its like your there.. and forget about the real world and this is one of those books.. I highly recommend it!
