That expresses an idea that's been in the back of my mind about why I like post-apocalyptic stories and does it better than I could have.

From an article by Joss Ware called "Writing a Post-Apocalyptic Romance":

And I started to think about it. The more I thought, the more fascinated I became with the idea…or, more accurately, the challenge, of writing a romance set in such a dark time. I loved the idea of having a world that had all of our knowledge in technology and science, our pop culture and fashion…but without the infrastructure and civilization that we are used to today.

It would be like writing a historical novel (no cell phones, no computers or cars), but with the ability to know everything we do now. Fascinating.
