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"

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!

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.

I was pleased to read a science-based novel about a subject that the author actually researched. The book was nicely plotted and the characters were recognizably individuals, skillfully given personality without saddling the reader with a pointless history. I only wish he had spent at least a little time learning punctuation! I won't be reading anymore of these novels, because the samples I've seen show the same poor grammar as the first. It's too distracting to me - pulls me right out of the story line and plops me flat in my chair, shaking my head and muttering, "Good grief!" For example, the lieutenant's Smith and Jones (can't remember the characters' actual names) would be two men who belong to some lieutenant. The Lieutenants Smith and Jones are Lieutenant Smith and Lieutenant Jones. "Under the Canadian's noses" indicates that there is a Canadian with two or more noses running around out there somewhere. That one not only knocked me out of the story line, but, fortunately, had me laughing for a while, thinking about that poor Canadian. I think he meant ". . . under the Canadians' noses." I'd think it was an error, but it was too common. It's nit-picky, I know, but I want the narrative to run so smoothly that I don't notice it. In this book, I had to keep backtracking to fill in the missing commas and interpret the usually unnecessary apostrophes and figure out what that sentence actually meant. That's just irritating.

I started this book just about the time everyone else was preparing for a blizzard. The story started out fairly normal. Environment lawyer, Robert Spire, found out he was named a an executor for the will of a climatologist who had died recently. There was some money to be left to a project of his choice. While he was looking into projects to give the money to, another climatologist dies suddenly. Spire starts investigating the deaths and ends up going on an Arctic adventure. In the meantime, our blizzard hit dumping 2+ feet of snow so I settled in with my book. I have to say, blizzard or not, I could not put the book down! The suspense was killing me! I had to get to the end! I cursed all the people (my kids) texting me to find out if I was alright. Just let me read my book! This author reminds me of other authors like Lee Child, Douglas Preston and Clive Cussler, all of whom are favorites of mine. This book was awesome and I can't wait to read others by this author.
