Book Review :: American Subversive

I read. A lot. About 50 books a year. {the trade off? i almost never watch tv so I am culturally illiterate on that front.} Only occasionally do I want to shout from the rooftops, "Go read this book!" I finished one of those yesterday.

What This Book Isn't:
• nice
• comforting
• mindless

What This Book Is:
• thoughtful
• provoking
• culturally relevant
• aching
• sympathetic

It's about domestic terrorism, bombings and the radical underground. If you've ever felt resentment at the direction American is headed you will find that reflected in these pages. The books presents both sides of the extreme elements in our society yet never falls into the trap of telling the reader which one is "right."

This ultimately is a story about people not politics but the ache and the apathy of America is palpable and resonates at the heart of this novel.

Go. Read. This. Book!
