So begins an extraordinary journey into the dark soul of modern America - from a back-to-the-land community in the Smoky Mountains to a Weather Underground-like bomb factory in Vermont; from Fishers Island, isolated getaway of the wealthy elite, to the hip lofts of Manhattan's Meatpacking District.
American Subversive is David Goodwillie's sharp and penetrating take on the paranoia of our times - and its real, untold dangers. In examining the connection between our collective apathy and the roots of insurrection, Goodwillie has crafted an intoxicating story of two young Americans grasping for a foothold in a culture - and a country - that's crumbling around them. With this debut novel, Goodwillie announces himself as a major new voice in American fiction. Expertly written, relentlessly suspenseful, and bitingly funny, American Subversive is both an unnervingly realistic tale of domestic terrorism and a perfectly observed portrait of Manhattan in the digital age.

Did I miss something? Not a 4star book.
What did you like about this audiobook?
Story unfolded quickly.
How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?
Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?
Not really. A bit like a made for TV movie. There's a story line but it's not plausible and the characters are fairly shallow.
What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?
They were okay. They were limited by the shallowness of the characters.
Do you have any additional comments?
It passed the time. I did finish it. That's why I gave it 2-3 stars rather than less.

Interesting set up, poor reader
The book has two readers, and the woman, Tavia Gilbert, does a good job. But I found David Drummond's reading to be excruciating and eventually stopped listening. The plot was mildly engaging, but not enough to make me suffer through.
