Right off the bat I could tell that this was a book I was going to enjoy when Stephen used his skill to make me smell the rainy warm desert air, and remind me of my own youth and the excitement of discovering and achieving new things. As a technology enthusiast and one who likes to learn about advances in physics as a layperson, Stephen kept me reading with very believable explanations of the sci-fi aspects of the story, all the while painting such a great descriptive environment that you put yourself in Ike's shoes and are immersed in his world. Great first publication Stephen!

Falling .... is a well, thought out, organized, filled with dialog, and self reflecting. Could be called how "Flying has inspired me", or "jumping off". It reflects passion and drive. I thought of a Young western Rocket Man.
It represents a break through for me, for it was my first down loaded e-book ever. It was so easy to down load and read. pg

This was a book that I really found intriguing on several levels. I loved the science fiction concept that gravity, like magnetism, has the ability to be both a positive and a negative force and that properly understood, it could become the mechanism through which man could fly. I think we have all wished at some point we could fly, not just from city to city like we do in an airplane, but personally, like a bird, and go wherever we might wish. Unlike much science fiction which takes such a large leap of credulity that it makes it difficult to imagine as real, the author presented this concept in a manner that made it very believable. Indeed, I found myself wondering, is the author really on to something here that could be developed. The story is told through the eyes of a young man in his late teens and it unfolded in a way that caused me to reflect upon my own teen years and those of my children. But I think the part of the book that intrigued me the most was the exploration of the question of where the inspiration comes from that has lead to the most complex and important discoveries of science. Yes, the scientist prepares himself and makes diligent inquiring into the subject matter, but is there something more that at some point helps him or her put it all together and understand things as they have never been understood before. From what I have read of some of the world's great scientist, I think this is an important concept to be explored and understood and I liked where the author led me. I highly recommend the book and think you will find it fascinating. It is a book that would lend itself beautifully to a wonderful movie. I am anxious for a sequel to explore these concepts even further.

The scientific postulate seems believable while being wholly fictional. I really like this book, but since I've read books that coerce me to keep reading straight through, and this one permits me to stop at various points for a breather, I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5.

Falling Into Heaven has an interesting and fast-moving story line which made me want to keep reading. As the story moves along, the characters are developed well and given depth. The technological side was really fun and well done. The concept is fantastic (who hasn't dreamed of flying?!) and it is enough to interest tech types but kept plenty simple to not bog the story down for someone who is not into that. The ending blind sided me, but afterward I felt like I understood better the reasons. (Not to be vague; just trying to avoid any spoilers.) The story is very compelling and will be enjoyed by readers of many ages and backgrounds.

Falling Into Heaven is a book about a boy named Ike who lives with his dad. When he finds out that his dad has invented a suit that allows people to explore the skies he wants to try it out. When Ike is able to try out the suit he finds that he is on top of the world. But there are also questions that he has. Why has his dad not shared it with the world? Why is he reluctant to share everything with him? Why is his dad so nervous about letting Ike use it when he sees it is perfectly safe? I like this book because it makes me think about what we can do as humans and what we can't do. It is very mysterious and it grabs your attention quickly.

A well done first novel. Isaac discovers that his dad has invented an anti-gravity suit that allows the wearer to control how gravity affects them - whether it pushes or pulls. Isaac becomes a test pilot for the suit and tries to convince his dad to share the secret with the world.

The book is a modern re-imagining of the Icarus myth and does a great job of creating a compelling and believable sci-fi technology. The flying scenes were some of my favorites and Mr. Craig has a real gift for describing action sequences in ways that are compelling and understandable, which is no easy feat.

My one criticism of the book is that because Isaac is based on Icarus (who famously died because of his pride.) he come across as a bit of a jerk and isn't always very likable. The scenes with his friends were less compelling than the flight sequences, but still helped round out the character.

Overall, worth the read. A good, solid novel with great a toon sequences and an emotional finish.
