Narrator Suzanne Elise Freeman pulls listeners into this crude yet hilarious romp in a dysfunctional dystopian world of the near future. The ribald dialogue of the main character, Hazel, is augmented by an even smuttier cast of crazies. Freeman gives the voice of Hazel's dying father a raspy dirty-old-man quality that fits a man who insists on having not one, but two, inflatable sex dolls. Hazel's befuddled voice recounts events that run the gamut from her repressed less-than-idyllic childhood memories to her present-day reality. Freeman smoothly transitions listeners to the questionable subplot involving the cross-species sexual attraction of narcissistic Jaspar to a dolphin. Who knew?? One can't not laugh, yet there's much to contemplate in the undercurrent of hopelessness and fear in Freeman's different vocalizations.
