The next day Bobby is a bit exhausted but glowing with satisfaction about his new "mistress," Carmen, a blowup doll. Loath to cheat on his possibly-frigid wife, he believes he's found the perfect solution. Imagine Bobby's surprise when he returns home to find Babe, naked and sated in the arms of none other than Carmen! Bobby's secret becomes Babe's compulsion as she finds her sexuality suddenly wide awake; like Lottie (Cameron Diaz) in Being John Malkovich, she discovers her true sexual calling in one scene in using her husband as a sort of human sexual surrogate to make love to the doll she has fallen for. In another scene Babe goes to the mall to buy Carmen sexy underthings and to find a man to service her. Meanwhile nosy neighbor Shirley Gordon keeps pestering Babe, who has been staying home from work to be with Carmen.
When Shirley Gordon's son comes knocking to return a borrowed axe, with which he has accidentally cut himself, she and Carmen together seduce the young boy. Babe and Bobby decide they have to dispose of Carmen, and drive her away to dump her by the roadside. They are pursued by Shirley Gordon, spin off the road and crash into a tree and both are killed. The novel closes with the final sexual fantasies of Bobby and Babe as their bodies slide into the incinerator at the crematorium, while Shirley Gordon drives away with her son and her prize from the accident-Carmen, who, like Stephen King's Christine, has no intention of going away.

This book didn't follow a story line. It jumped from one place to another. You couldn't even follow it. I would not recommend this book to anyone. It made no sense what so ever.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
