Easily one of the funniest and most entertaining audiobooks in memory, MANEATER, masterfully performed (not merely read) by Uma Thurman, is a must listen if you like razor-sharp, no-holds-barred wit, including catty, cynical, merciless humor, and writing that wastes no opportunity to entertain. Shocking, hilarious, and ultimately heartbreaking, MANEATER recounts the life of Clarissa Alpert, a clueless, blonde 30-something (she says she’s 28) Beverly Hills native who takes her stereotype into the stratosphere and back in her search for a husband. You’ll wish her story were twice as long--it’s that much fun. Thurman seems completely familiar with the characters and lovingly injects three-dimensionality into each. She knows how to play comedy as well--no easy task for most actors. Put on your Prada and enjoy, like, now! D.J.B.
