American Subversive, by David Goodwillie

This novel is about domestic terrorism in 21st century America, about yuppie disaffection, and is also a love story of sorts.   Alternating chapters describe things from the point of view of our two main characters (I'd almost called them heros, but thought better of it):  a young woman seeking a way to avenge her brother's death in Iraq and a blogger barely making his way through the day.

Interesting, and difficult to put down, but an unsettling and not very pleasurable read.
