My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is the third book I have recently read by Roy Dimond and I am really impressed with the way he gets really important messages about our human life across to the reader. He makes you think about your life and how you are living it.
The Rubicon Effect deals with how the way we live our lives is damaging the planet and endangering the future for our children. A Rubicon means a situation where there is no turning back from. Originally written several years ago, there are surprisingly similar events described in the book that have come to real life fruition. For instance Roy has a character Pope Agapetus III a Pope born in South America who is called a Papal reformer. This character echoes values that the current Pope Francis believes in.
The fate of the World lies with the people and the choices they ultimately make. Sam Albright is a scientist and environmentalist, he’s spent years fighting against global warming. Coming up against forces in Governments and the oil industry whose only belief is power and profit. The book deals with the race for the next American Presidency, again with some astonishing similarities to real life situations.
How many of us are fed up with politics? Lethargic about voting? And are demoralised by the endless paperwork shuffling by bureaucrats who spend our taxes without our say? What will it take to make us change our ways? The characters in the Rubicon Effect call for a Grounds Up Revolution, returning the power to the people. They vow to stop the World from being ruled by fear and negativity and turn it around to a World of hope, hope for the future. Now I think that’s not a bad idea for the real World that we live it today.
Read one of Roy’s books today and open your mind to change.
