Escaping the Dead (Whiskey Tango Foxtrot #1) by W. J. Lundy
Updated: May 3, 2018
A very enjoyable addition to the zombie universe of books. This was especially fun since it had such a realistic boots-on-the-ground feel with an isolated military convoy in Afghanistan. The writing was clean and sharp and the military side to everything was sketched perfectly. I found the characters to be believable and attractive and their situation compelling. Finally, realistic zombies that are fast and creepy but that have a (somewhat) believable first cause. I was hooked from the get go and happily rode right beside them page after page.
The text had a few typos and grammar issues but surprisingly few, really. The dialogue was deft, the radio chatter apt, and the growing realization of the extent of their isolation and the world's dire situation was terrific.
I highly recommend this book. I am already happily plowing through the next volume in the story.
