The narrators' energetic performances are perfect for this outlandish tale. Cassandra Campbell and Mark Deakins portray Charmaine and Stan, a married couple who have fallen on hard times who join a social experiment called the Positron Project. They're given a home and full-time jobs, but in exchange they must spend half the year in prison. Campbell's character voices are playful, and she gives Charmaine a high-pitched coquettishness. Deakins has broad tones and a booming voice; his characters often sound buffoonish, which is fitting because they are. His Elvis imitation is spot-on, though. Listening to this audiobook is like hearing two people tell you about the terrible things they've done, and their bad choices just continue to snowball.
