Radio Hope has received its first review! The reviewer, blogger Sioux Roslawski, says:
The author has painted a
picture of a world that we might end up with--if we keep abusing our
environment and we if keep being devisive about people, keeping the
"have-nots" separated from the "haves." Although this story takes place
in the future, it's easy to envision it being not too far into the
future...which is the terrifying part.
I appreciate that the
author has given his readers some credit. Too often, books like this are
full of chunks of background information. Different terms and
backstories are explained at the very beginning, which slows down the
story. Sean McLachlan trusts that his readers have brains and he has
ensured that things are revealed in a logical, natural way...as the
story evolves. (He even made us wait until the last page for a tidbit I
was wondering about throughout the entire novel. I was worried I'd never
find out the answer, that it would be just a forgotten detail, but
McLachlan did not disappoint...)
I gave this novel 5 stars
because it is normally not the kind of book I would read. However,
despite it being outside of my reading box, I inhaled it. I read it in
two nights, anxious to get to the end.
Sioux isn't the only person who said they've read it in two days. I take that as a good sign!
My virtual book tour is continuing. Today I'm being interviewed by Paris-based blogger D.G. Hudson.
