Review

RABID READER REVIEW  - "The world is on the brink of an ecological disaster. Climatologists are found dead, and the investigation into their passing takes one man around the globe and into a conspiracy to melt the ice caps and send the world to its tipping point.
While I think Rosser does his best to write a credibly scientific story, I'd be lying to say that I understood every point. That said, Tipping Point is a freaking fabulous thriller. Despite not getting all of the science, I enjoyed this smart and fast read. Not only is Rosser's novel a well-written and fun roller coaster ride, but it makes you think about global warming and what it is doing in regard to the future of our planet."

What the readers are saying;
"Compelling story about a very current issue"

"Tip top global adventure"

"Enjoyable action-thriller"

"Great yarn, couldn't put it down"

"Well-crafted environmental thriller"

"Simmering suspense"

From the Author

Si Rosser is the author of TIPPING POINT, the first book in the Robert Spire series, IMPACT POINT, the second, and MELT ZONE, the third Spire novel.

Fourth Robert Spire Action-adventure thriller, CATACLYSM of the ANCIENTS, has just been released.

The author is now working on VAPORIZED 2 and will soon start Spire 5. Watch this space!

My first writing experience, if you could call it that, came from my love of horror movies. Saturday night would be horror movie double bill night. I'm talking about all the Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee and Vincent Price films, vampires, monsters, mummies and werewolves. I kept scrapbooks of all the films I saw between 1977 and 1981, and still have them to this day. I'd spend hours drawing a little picture of the film and appraising it - the writing part!

Roll on 25 years, I decided to write the factual A-Z of Global Warming to clarify the complex subject of climate change. My thrillers are a mix of ecological and techno-thriller with a bit of Science Fiction thrown in for good measure.

If you enjoyed reading any of my books, and have the time, please stop by and leave a Amazon review. It will be much appreciated, thanks.

I bought this book based on the previous reviews, but found it was not very polished. Punctuation, especially commas (or lack of them, I should say), was a problem throughout the book. There were several misspelled words (yes, I'm aware of the differences between American and English spellings). A couple of scenes had inconsistencies in regards to time elapsed. Probably the most annoying to me was the head-hopping. The character point of view changed in many scenes without a break to give warning of the change.
The character of Robert Spire had some depth to him, but the others were not well-rounded. At a couple different points in the story, I found character actions to be implausible.
While the basic story line was okay, it had too many technical errors for me to enjoyably read.

This is a nice and easy read, and overall likable. I could deduce the following forumla:

- take the science from the 'The Day After Tomorrow'
- take an ex- KGB assassin from Fredrick Forsyth
- mate Jack Reacher (Lee Child) with John Grisham's lawyer to produce a wanna-be James Bond
- Bring in twists and turns of a James Bond movie.
- Borrow a punchline from Bond - "My name is Spire, Robert Spire"!!
- Shake them well

Viola! You have the 'Tipping Point'. Mind you, I am not bad-mouthing this novel, just giving you a feel of what to expect. Rosser has done an appreciable job of blending all the elements together, and such an effort from a working professional balancing his day-time job, family and life, is commendable. I like this for the fun read this was, for the sincere effort of the author, and obviously, the story that was interesting enough for wanting to turn the page.

What a fun ride! I could not put this thought provoking book down! The plot moves along quickly leading the readers on a journey they will not want to end! The story is a skillfully written thriller full of twists and turns. The subject is very a propos with the melting in Antartica. Global warming Is definitely a possibility.

Mr.Rosser is a brilliant author and a superb storyteller! in his standout offering, he gives us a taut action packed thriller!
This week end, my to-do list suffered greatly, I could not put this book down! I will definitely buy everything this author publishes and I recommend this story to anyone enjoying thrillers It is brilliant!

I found the writing overdone. I tried the second book in the series to see if it improved on the first but it didn't. Too wordy and an implausible plot.

The plot for this book is good, and there is a lot of action and a lot of dead people, thanks largely to a nicotine-addicted assassin. The protagonist is sort of a superman, able to leap tall buildings and survive a mind-numbing number of death-defying events. However, there is so much superfluous material and redundancy that I have to wonder if the author is being paid for the number of pages in the book. If pared down with much of the superfluous stuff removed, this could be an excellent book. If this writing style is evident in the follow-on books, I doubt that I will read them.

After reading the entire “Tipping Point” by Simon Rosser, I have come up with a bit of a writing guide for aspiring writers who want to be just like Mr. Rosser. Enjoy!

Creative past tenses
Most people feel that there is only one past tense of lean: “leaned”. Some clever Brits even allow themselves to spell it “leant” which is also cool. Why stick to what “everyone” does? Where’s the creativity in that? Mr. Rosser has invented an all-new past tense of the word “lean”. Who’s to say that it shouldn’t be “lent”, used like that at least 8 times in the book?

Sight? Site? Baron? Barren?
A lot of people get “site” and “sight” confused. Is something out of sight or out of site? Is it website or web sight? When you see a knife standing out of your leg, is it a “horrible sight” or possibly a “horrible site”? Also, why is it that “baron” and “barren” are almost pronounced exactly the same – although they mean completely different and completely unrelated things, it’s very easy to get them confused. If you’re one of those confused people, don’t fret – authors of full-length novels also get confused. Simon Rosser is no exception.

If you want your characters to sound polite, make sure that they say “gentlemen” or “gentleman” at least 25 times in your book.
Some people might say that using the same noun 25 times in the same book is over-using it, but I don’t agree. Neither does Simon Rosser. A polite, well-mannered businessman (or a sexy Russian assassin) will say “gentlemen” every time he or she starts a sentence in a meeting. Anything else would just be rude. Sometimes a character will even say “gentleman” to a group of men, just for the sake of diversity! So, keep it diverse (but not too diverse).

A really good action thriller staring Robert Spire as the worlds first eco-007...I read Impact point the 2nd book in the series first and then went back and read this. I admit it I know next to nothing about global warning and I never thought I would either but you can't help but learn a huge amount about the subject at the same time as being hugely entertained. Spire in this episode is attempting to stop some Saudi oil barons from melting the ice around Greenland to enable the retraction of oil. This would cause a massive global disaster and its a race against time to stop them.

Great read for anybody looking for something different. Well written and cleverly drags the reader through an education without us struggling to keep up.
