Reviews for Whisky Charlie Foxtrot
Whisky Charlie Foxtrot
I was first intrigued by the contents page, which designated a chapter to every letter of the two-way alphabet (Alpha, bravo, Charlie, Delta, Echo...etc.) It lured me to turn the page, and I entered the world of Charlie, who is one half of a set of identical twin brothers. The other half is William, aka Whisky, who seems to excel at life and have everything handed to him on a silver platter...until he is hit by a car and ends up in a coma. Charlie is forced to confront his deep-seated issues towards his brother and make amends, but is it too late?
The book travels in a non-linear fashion as it flashes back to unearth the story behind the brothers' tumultuous past. It travels forward at the same time as Charlie tries to deal with Whisky's accident, and he faces the fact that he might not ever get to speak to his brother again. The emotion-laden writing will have you crying, cringing, laughing, wondering and most of all; hoping.
This book is wonderfully written; it is engaging, suspenseful and enjoyable. It is so easy to relate to the characters, or at least get the feeling that they remind you of someone that you know. This is because the characters have depth and seem as real as you and I, warts and all.
Annabel Smith seamlessly strings the story together, and she offers the reader a unique take on an unusual situation by providing a distinct voice and a flawless style.
This is the best book that I have read in a long time. by Asten Nunn
