Description

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is a introduction into the apocalyptic world of Staff Sergeant Brad Thompson.

The radio goes quiet while on convoy in Afghanistan, a lost patrol alone in the desert. With his unit and his home base destroyed, Staff Sergeant Brad Thompson suddenly finds himself isolated and in command of a small group of men trying to survive in the Afghan wasteland. The local population has been afflicted with an illness that turns them into rabid animals. They pursue him and his men at every corner and stop. Struggling to hold his team together and unite survivors, he must fight and evade his way to safety.

W. J. Lundy is a current member of the U.S. Military with service in Afghanistan. He is donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book to the Wounded Warrior Project.

The full novel follow up, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot: Tales of the ForgottenComing Soon.

Could not listen

I could only listen to about 10 min of this. The narrators voice just turned me off. It is a too bad as I think the storyline would be a great concept.

WTF, Love the Series

Where does Whiskey Tango Foxtrot rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This was my first audio book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character in the book is Sergeant Brad Thompson. Sergeant Thompson finds himself in the worst possible position a soldier could find himself, alone in the desert with his convoy with no radio at the beginning of a zombie apocalypse. With no base camp he must lead his surviving unit through the desert to find other survivors. I love zombie novels that include a lead character with military experience. You just know these combat trained men and women just stand a better chance of making it.

What about Eric Vincent’s performance did you like?

Mr. Vincent’s narration flowed. I did read that one of the problems with audio books is that sometimes the voice will change, which could be an indication that there was a correction made in the tape editing. I heard none of that.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

WTF:FUBAR

Any additional comments?

I am a huge fan of W.J. Lundy and his WTF series. His third book in the series, Only the Dead Live Forever, is supposed to be out sometime in October (can’t wait). This series is great because the books are so original and different from other zombie novels I have read. Mr. Lundy’s series contains everything that I like about the zombie genre. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to WTF and did so in one sitting. I really respect this author, not only does he serve our country he also donates a portion of the proceeds from his books to the Wounded Warrior Project. Mr. Lundy is a great writer, dedicated military man, and a super nice guy who truly appreciates his fans.

Seat of the Pants Entertainment!

If you could sum up Whiskey Tango Foxtrot in three words, what would they be?

WHAT THE FOXTROT. This is a new twist on your standard zombie book. I really enjoyed it.

What did you like best about this story?

The realism, the way the soldiers come together to survive, Even the warring parties get against their differences to join a common fight. The Story is fast paced and very tense, I found myself sitting in the driveway waiting to finish it..

Have you listened to any of Eric Vincent’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. I have not, but plan to in the future. Eric has a knack for entertaining, instead of a standard monotone read, he really gets into the characters. I don't understand the negatives, I think his excitement adds to the adventure, it doesn't distract at all.

Who was the most memorable character of Whiskey Tango Foxtrot and why?

The lead Brad Thompson, I can't wait to learn more about him.

Any additional comments?

Proceeds from these books go to the wounded warriors. Makes this a very worthwhile purchase.

Story may get more than 3 stars

I'll start by stating that I couldn't finish this audiobook, Eric Vincent is a horrible narrator. It sounds like he would be a great character actor but with this book he sounds like the love child of George W Bush, William Shatner and a robot.

As for the story, I have moved to reading the Kindle version. I'm about halfway through and so far its pretty good.

Great story.

Would you listen to Whiskey Tango Foxtrot again? Why?

I already have, its not to long, so you can listen to it on a short day trip.

What did you like best about this story?

The intensity and tension.

What does Eric Vincent bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His attitude adds to the excitement.

Who was the most memorable character of Whiskey Tango Foxtrot and why?

The Primals.

Any additional comments?

Sometimes it gets a little fast for me. Waiting on the sequel.

Typical Military Zombie Sci-Fi

I don't have a whole lot say about this, it is a typical Military Zombie story, with a high body count. Some may not be happy with the Taliban connection, I make no judgement. I did not get this for free and I never do, cause I can not be trusted to be enthusiastic about everything I read. It's your money.

The narrator's voice ruined it for me.

It took a few chapters for me to really start to dislike the narrator's voice. It was a chore for me to get through this book. The book itself isn't anything new in the apocalypse/zombie genre. Most likely will not be purchasing any other books in this series.

WTF.

the story was good, but the narration distracted me. Too nasal and didn't sound like soldiers talking.

So-so story, horrible narration

I struggled to want to like and listen to this one but the narrators strange cadence, which sounded like a poor impression of William Shatner, along with odd pronunciation and accenting of certain words made it unlistenable. The story seems to have some potential so I may check out the kindle version and if it's better (as some have suggested) will update the review, but in the meantime I'll be returning this oneafter listening 1/8 of the way through. Totally not worth the credit.

narrator sucks.

story is interesting, zombie outbreak in afganistan, army and spec ops seals fighting zombies while trying to get home.

This story is right up my alley, the narrator makes it unlistenable. need some one like Duke Fontaine, or some one who doesn't sounds so weaselly.

Great story-horrible narration

Love the books and storyline, w.j Lundy has a lot going for him. The narrator however was poorly chosen and I came close to nearly giving up on the audiobook because of it.
