Description du produit

Revue de presse

"Is it too late to nominate a candidate for novel of the summer? . . . A paranoid, sarcastic and clattering pop thriller . . . Mr. Shafer gets the playfulness-to-paranoia ratio about exactly right. . . . He's got a sick wit and a high style. Reading his prose is like popping a variant of the red pill in The Matrix: Everything gets a little crisper. . . . Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is a page-turner, yet many more "literary" writers will, I suspect, envy Mr. Shafer's tactile prose. His eye is hawklike. . . . Mr. Shafer has written a bright, brash entertainment, one that errs, when it errs at all, on the side of generosity, narrative and otherwise. It tips you, geekily and humanely, through the looking glass."―Dwight Garner, New York Times

"Shafer's savvy, sardonic take on our social media- and Big Data-worshiping society is as current as your Twitter feed..Just in time for your August beach trip, put Whiskey on your Amazon Wish List. As if they don't already know you want it."―Patty Rhule, USA Today

"Genius techno-­thriller à la Neal ­Stephenson, powered by social-media info-conspiracy à la Dave Eggers."―Lev Grossman, Time

"No summary can do justice to the snap and smarts of this witty tale. . . . A clever book with an entertaining narrator just exploding with personalities."―Jenni Laidman, Chicago Tribune

"Zinging with wit and pop culture savvy . . . Shafer's writing is hip, wickedly hilarious, cutting edge, and ultimately concerned with old-fashioned notions of morality and redemption. . . His inventive, comic, dystopian semi-thriller restored my faith in fiction."―Mark Lindquist, Seattle Times

Présentation de l'éditeur

One of Time Magazine's Ten Best Books of 2014

Selected by NPR, Slate, and Kirkus as one of the Best Books of 2014

Shortlisted for the Pacific Northwest Book Award

Three young adults grapple with the usual thirty-something problems--boredom, authenticity, an omnipotent online oligarchy--in David Shafer's darkly comic debut novel.


The Committee, an international cabal of industrialists and media barons, is on the verge of privatizing all information. Dear Diary, an idealistic online Underground, stands in the way of that takeover, using radical politics, classic spycraft, and technology that makes Big Data look like dial-up. Into this secret battle stumbles an unlikely trio: Leila Majnoun, a disillusioned non-profit worker; Leo Crane, an unhinged trustafarian; and Mark Deveraux, a phony self-betterment guru who works for the Committee.

Leo and Mark were best friends in college, but early adulthood has set them on diverging paths. Growing increasingly disdainful of Mark's platitudes, Leo publishes a withering takedown of his ideas online. But the Committee is reading--and erasing--Leo's words. On the other side of the world, Leila's discoveries about the Committee's far-reaching ambitions threaten to ruin those who are closest to her.

In the spirit of William Gibson and Chuck Palahniuk,Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is both a suspenseful global thriller and an emotionally truthful novel about the struggle to change the world in- and outside your head.

Elle s’appelle Leila et bosse dans l’humanitaire, ils s’appellent Mark et Léo, ont été très amis avant de se perdre de vue. En Birmanie, Leila est témoin de quelque chose qu’elle n’aurait pas dû voir. Léo, avant de perdre pied et contact avec la réalité, a tenu un blog pertinent qui a viré au conspirationnisme. Mark, enfin, est devenu riche et célèbre en acceptant de voir remanier son essai brillant en une sorte de manuel de développement personnel bidon. Ils vont tous trois tremper les pieds dans un truc énorme…
« Thriller pop parano » annonce la 4° de couv et c’est bien trouvé. On est à la croisée de plusieurs genres et le mariage est réussi, on s’amuse comme des petits fous avec les trouvailles ingénieuses et souvent très drôles de l’auteur (et de la traductrice !*), comme les noms que se choisissent les membres de Dear Diary : Matt Moissa, Dune Seultrett, Roman Igance, Sarah Tonine, Tom Ahawk, Brice Glass, Mild Max, Mike Rosoft ou encore Casper Plex, ou même rien que le titre : Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (WTF). Les premières pages – de présentation des personnages – ont tout de suite un ton, auquel j’ai adhéré sans réserve; c’est comme si l’auteur parvenait à établir une connivence immédiate avec le lecteur, on a un peu l’impression d’être dans un roman d’apprentissage, on se sent en prise avec le monde bien contemporain et on a hâte de voir évoluer les trois héros. Et puis ça se décale, on entre dans un roman d’espionnage, toujours plein d’humour (ou d’étrange !

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I don't enjoy novels that end with a cliff hanger 6 septembre 2014
Par reviewerbruce - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Had I know this was going to be the first of a series of books and it was going to end with a cliff hanger, I would not have started it. The characters in the book made it an interesting, although not compelling, read. The plot - bad big brother info gather against good guy info gather - didn't come across as believable. In fact, it reminded me a lot of the 1960's James Bond spy thrillers; including the omnipresent villain in an elaborate lair. The only thing missing was the "villain" petting his long hair white cat while it laid in his lap. This is not to say I haven't enjoyed other authors whose novels are part of a series; I only enjoy the ones where each novel is complete on its own while being connected to all of the others in the series. I was disappointed this book felt so incomplete.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Well-Written 19 août 2014
Par BA - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is a very well-written and at times very witty book. The ending leaves you hanging though. The author spends a lot of time detailing the inner thoughts of the three main characters and, in my opinion, too much time on the drunken/drugged antics of the Mark character. But the book is very well-written and includes keen observations and witticisms to ponder. Examples:
"A reflexive disinclination to believe in political conspiracy theories flows from two beliefs: that human incompetence makes such conspiracies untenably complicated, and that people do not allow terrible injustices to be perpetrated upon them."
"Did she see that he had forgiven himself for not being a genius? Did she see that he was ready to stand up and start pushing back against the world, no longer a fugitive or an apologizer; that it was all due to her somehow, that she had turned a key? Of all the times and places, she lived in this one, and he did too, and they had come upon each other. That could be luck or something grander; either way worked for him."

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book if you don't mind 11 septembre 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I really enjoyed the writing style, the quick pace, and the characters were nicely flawed and quirky.

Timely topic that makes you think, great for the conspiracy minded among us.

I bought the book after reading a recommendation from Seth Godin, and hesitated somewhat after reading the feedback about the ending.

I hate to say I agree, the lack of ending spoiled it for me even though I knew it was coming.

It would be one thing if there was some conflict resolved, but yet another to be addressed "when we meet again."

This one sets up the initial conflict, and just as you are getting interested in what will happen next, the lights come on.

Par Oregon Jess - Publié sur Amazon.com

David Shafer’s debut novel deserves the raves it’s already won from some of our touchiest critics. The New Yorker, Salon, and the New York Times are all onboard with the obvious: Shafer is a grand new literary light in these dark and gabbled times. First there is his craft. Polished sentences, Celtic, rhythmic and true, are honed with a wondrous vocabulary: hypnagogic and kerned and screed, splodge and, yes, gabbled. He’s especially well versed in old English words like “fug.” Look it up. He salts-and-peppers his prose with enough heartfelt swearing to puncture any alleged erudition (another Shaferism.) And we should all applaud his restraint with simile and metaphor, which he clearly understands are controlled substances. We have “stalagmites of magazines” on a bedside table, a hamburger treated to a “sachet of bright yellow mustard,” and “white paisleys” on a "scudding sea." Move over Flannery O’Connor. My favorites are “his head felt like a bag of crabs,” and “Mark found his lighter and ascended the steep steps like an Egyptologist.” Picture perfect. As is Shafer’s character development – Leo, for instance, is a shoo-in for Most Adorably Unlikely to Succeed...and yet he does. And then there is the frightening story itself, especially with the crazy Koch brothers’ current attempt at a prepaid political coup. Do I hear a WTF? It all rushes on with page-turner forward momentum, as any good techno-thriller should. But the real prize, and surprise, is that Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot is a profoundly spiritual work. In a most original and modern way, Shafer lays out the eternal Earth battle between heart and hate, us and me, humanism and fascism, and asks us to find the nerve to stand up and be counted...or at least to get out the vote. Which, for those who managed to miss it, is precisely why Shafer leaves us with a cliffhanger ending. As always, the choice, and the endgame, is ours.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 For scifi fans with discerning tastes 22 août 2014

Three likable,well drawn and initially separate mid-thirties protagonists watch their lives increasingly spin out of control seemingly due to the machinations of highly placed powerful institutions beyond their control. They are drawn closer in a whirlwind of strange events as they struggle to gain some control over the sh#% life has thrown at them. Well written with complex,believable characters that despite(or because of)their quirks had me rooting for them. Seems to me that this fits in more with the present day/near future scifi written by the likes of William Gibson,Neal Stephenson or Walter Jon Williams than the more normal thrillers on the best seller lists. This is very good company to be in and I hope to see more of this author. Cutting edge,highly recommended. Thank you for a good read,Mr Shafer
