I’m not one for writing reviews, despite buying 2-4 books a month for my Kindle, but felt keen to contribute, mainly to encourage this debut author. The Radio is a truly heartfelt, insightful and warm composition. Despite the darker side to much of it’s content, Lee still manages to keep the reader gripped by the dark humour and familiarity of the characters.

The books strength is in it’s core sense of family and the humour identified in simplicity of daily life. We can all relate to this book and its characters on one level or another.

Mollie and George provide two memorable and long suffering characters, surrounded by those who have lost perspective.

A superb debut, and I look forward to reading his next novel.
