Publisher's Summary

Jeremiah Stumpf is certain of two things: he loves his country, and his next door neighbors are terrorists. Between counting and recounting his cache of gold and silver coins, cleaning his assault weapons, and emailing Paul Ronsen, his Libertarian superhero, Jeremiah devises a plan to deal with his neighbors in a way that is uniquely American. Unfortunately, his neighbors are not what he thinks they are. They are something much worse, something beyond his comprehension.

Funniest book I've come across in years

Would you listen to American Zeroes again? Why?

I would, because it was entertaining and I enjoyed it.


What does Joe Quirk bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The performance was excellent, and the different accents were very well done. The one thing about the performance that I'd say wasn't perfect was the speed of it. The delivery seemed slower and more drawn out than most others. I would suggest starting this book at at least 1.5 or 2 times the normal speed.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It definitely made me laugh. It's certainly unsettling and makes you think, but there's nothing to make anyone cry.


Any additional comments?

Just about everyone knows someone like the main character, who is a paranoid, over-the-top, right-wing conspiracy theorist. It's a little unsettling to be inside the head of someone like this, but the books still manages to be hilarious.

This book pulled me back in

American Zeroes. First and foremost allow me to set up my listening environment. It was November 9th 2016, the day after... Being though I was about to swear off a lifetime of interest America's politics as well as worldwide political issues for the next 4 years.
This is the book that pulled me back in.

The character's thoughts and actions shared a creative microcosm of truth about us all. We may not speak outside of our immediate circles of our political or even religious vaults. We may make comments even prejudge. I say we, because we are not Jeremiah Stumpf. This character has the type of crazy honesty that oddly is relatable. I know this guys. Sadly, I know this guys. I've seen him on social media, seen him walking through Walmart, I've seen this guy on the news. This guy is an American fixture. Be it good or bad it make us America. I would love to see this played out as As far the performance of the audiobook, I salute you, Joe Quirk. You gave a cool performance, of John DiFelice's words. I'm going to most definitely give it a few more listens. I look forward to future titles from John Difelice.
