    Lost City Radio- Eric Michael

    Lost City Radio by Daniel Alarcorn has the original feeling of a basic post-war story, being told by the citizens back at home. The fiction story takes place in Latin America, and the country's specific name is not given. A large civil war has just taken place, and now, naturally, the country is run by a soulless government. The main character in Lost City Radio is Norma. She lives in the capital city of her country and is perhaps the most well-known person in her country, even though none of her have seen her because she is a radio host.<BR/> Norma's fame is in her voice, which is praised all over the country and recognized by anyone. She is the star and host of the Lost City Radio show, a program intended to reunite listeners with lost loved ones separated from the war. Norma is not allowed to mention the war on air but she is encouraged to spur the hope and longing of her listeners as much as she possibly can. It is quite ironic that Norma's show is intended to hook up long and lost loved ones, because it is Norma herself whose husband has been both long and lost for an extended period of time.<BR/> The story really starts off when Norma is visited at the studio by a boy who calls himself Victor. The purpose of Victor's journey is to bring Norma a list of the names of those missing from his town. It turned out that the town Victor comes from is the same that Norma's husband frequently used to visit. The story winds as Norma travels through many villages on a quest to find her husband. The main message portrayed seems to be the extent of the damage of the civil war on every citizen. People recall how wonderful their country was before the war, and how it seems to have drained all life from the people of the country.<BR/> The characters of this novel seem to be a little two sided. Norma's husband and his father worked both for the standing government and also the IL, the legion attempting to overthrow the current government. There are instances when both of those men recall the fact of one minute working for the government and the next minute being punished by the same people they worked for. Norma herself will cooperate with the government, the same people who she despises for destroying her beloved country.<BR/> There does not seem to be a right side to the civil war, revolution or novel in general. The story holds a different meaning, the worry and shortcomings of the human mind. People on both sides of the war were angry at the other side about nothing in particular, and this seemed to somehow spark a war that tore a country apart. This novel forces a person to look at themselves and the grudges they hold, examining that hatred and trying to find a reason.
