Tipping Point has many engrossing characters from the lovable Vicky & her
daughter Lottie to the fearsome Wedge, i am eagerly awaiting the sequel to
this brilliant book.
With a variety of characters operating on various levels of the 'Something's rotten in the state of Denmark' spectrum, the reader is introduced to those who bury their head in the sand, others who believe it's a glitch the government will correct and a happy ending will be had by all, people who thrive on total anarchy, and doomsday folks who planned months in advance. Vicki's journey is very credible, from disbelief at what's happening in her world, to eventual acceptance, and how best to survive and protect her daughter.
This is a disturbing story, not only because of the horrific circumstances and gradual breakdown of society, but also, even though an improbable situation, it's quite believable. That's partly because it's obvious the author did extensive research, but it also just makes sense in a twisted governmental conspiracy type of way.
This is the first in a series, and I'm very glad I won't have to wait long for the second book! I'd highly recommend Tipping Point for post-apocalyptic/dystopian fans. Get started now before the next book releases in September.
I received a digital ARC from the author.
Tipping Point is no different. Straight away I was rooting for Vicky and her teenage daughter, Lottie, to survive the horrors of a deadly virus that sweeps across England. Set in the not too distant future (2024), Tipping Point explores the terrifying prospect of social media being used against the general populace and the terror that would follow if society crashed around us.
On more than one occasion while reading this book I came close to shutting down my Facebook and Twitter accounts – just in case! Tyler does an expert job of bringing our deepest fears to life in such an accessible way.
The story is told predominantly from Vicky’s point of view as she learns about the spread of a deadly virus and is quarantined within her sleepy seaside town. She escapes with her teenage daughter in tow, and they flee in search of a safe house. Vicky evolves over the course of this novel but her reactions to what she witnesses and copes with are realistic to the situation she finds herself in. I look forward to seeing how she develops over the series.
As with all of Tyler’s novels, there is a wonderful mix of characters, and their unique tales are interwoven as the novel progresses. We are introduced briefly to people who, I believe, will make a larger impact in future books – Wedge!
Although the bigger picture, which is the destruction of the human race, is at the forefront of the novel, I loved the personal stories of the characters as they do what I hope we would all do in their situation – strive to survive!
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Tipping Point and think it’s a perfect read for any dystopian fan. I would also highly recommend it whether you like this genre or not – if only to teach you about social media awareness! I can’t wait for the release of the second book in the series.
The story is reminiscent of Survivors - a virus wipes out most of the population - but is so much more than that. The premise behind the unleashing of the virus is brilliantly told, and it's chilling. Terry Tyler's analysis of Britain in the near future is intelligent and utterly believable. The story is told from a number of viewpoints and has exactly the right blend of background and and action to keep the reader hooked - I read it in three sittings and would have read it in one if I'd had the time.
I can't wait for the next part of the trilogy!
