Publisher's Summary

You read Orwell's 1984. Now read The United States of Air.

The National Sewer Agency is spying on people's toilets, looking for food terrorists...

Food Enforcement Agent Jason Frolick believes in America. He believes in eating air. He struggles to get the food monkey off his back. As part of the Global War on Fat, his job is to put food terrorists in Fat Camp.

When a pizza dealer gets whacked in the park across the street from the Thin House, the Prophet Jones himself asks Frolick to investigate. For the first time ever, Frolick solves a murder - but what he finds out shakes his faith.

Will he ever be able to eat air again?

    "For fans of the Daily Show"
    What did you love best about The United States of Air?

    This book is like a cross between South Park, the Daily Show, and George Orwell.

    It's like 1984 only way funnier!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The United States of Air?

    the scene between Frolick and the Prophet near the end. I didn't know whether to laugh or to cry.


    Which character – as performed by J.M. Porup – was your favorite?

    Fatso!!!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Throwing Poo at the Powerful


    Any additional comments?

    the "war or terror" is a buncha crappola you ask me and this book calls it like it is!

    "Eye-rolling, gave up halfway through"
    Would you try another book from J.M. Porup and/or J.M. Porup?

    Nope.


    Would you ever listen to anything by J.M. Porup again?

    Nope.


    What didn’t you like about J.M. Porup’s performance?

    The t's were super crisp, so any word with a t was clipped and jarring. He was trying to act like a clueless wannabe naive idiot, but he just came across as an asshat.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I rolled my eyes at just about every line. I have two little kids so I hear about poop, pee, farts, butts, and the rest every single day. I don't care. But this book was just infantile. The constant references to "poo," "pee," and "wee wees" was just too much for me. I have better uses for my time than listening to something that sounds like my 6-year-old wrote it. I had high hopes for the book because I thought the concept was good, but the focus on poop in the middle of the book just made me give up.


    Any additional comments?

    Ugh. Just ugh.

    "Like South Park!"
    If you could sum up The United States of Air in three words, what would they be?

    Really LOL funny!


    Which character – as performed by J.M. Porup – was your favorite?

    Fatso. The cheesy over-the-top French accent is so ridiculous I laughed out loud!
