In addition, there is just enough of the pre-collapse technology around, that every little bit of it can make a difference. Antibiotics, special weapons, electronic gadgets - every one of them is a double-edged relic that can perform some great act and serve mankind still, but also reminds the characters of how far the world has fallen. There are a number of examples of this in the book, and I really liked how it was handled.
Also, a lot of the dumber tropes of post-apocalyptic fiction are either avoided or handled in a much better fashion. There are zombie/mutant analogues, but they're really just people who live out on the fringes and get sky-high off of whatever chemicals they can scrounge from the ruins. There are evil cults, but they don't seem cartoonish or overly simplified. There are no special mutant powers, no giant killer weasels, no "chosen one" prophesied to save mankind. This is just a well-written, cleverly conceived story, and I highly recommend it to those who enjoy post-apocalyptic fiction.
Though two of the characters are a single mother and her young son, RADIO HOPE is broader in scope than THE ROAD, evoking echoes of THE POSTMAN but with an ending just as nail-biting but that doesn't let you down as THE POSTMAN's did.
No backstory dump for Sean. Like a master storyteller, he weaves the past into the grim present in deft strokes that keep you turning the pages.
As compelling as THE WALKING DEAD but with more believable crises that may very well arise for all of us if our governments and zealot groups do not learn wisdom and restraint. The world is toxic but the human spirit strives on in RADIO HOPE.
And the mystery of the lone radio station broadcasting survival lessons and hope kept me turning the pages.
Like Stephen King, Sean paints characters you root for and whose final fates are uncertain until they claim them. No sure victors in the toxic world he presents ... only a fine story that stays with you long after you've closed the book.
