Stylishly written, "Maneater" narrates a story of a spoiled social climber whose goal in life is to marry a rich man with a club foot named Aaron. Please join her as she journeys through the realizations and lessons of what really matters in life, the joys and pretensions of Los Angeles, and the pains of growing up at 28 (31). Clarissa, the heroine, is a charachter you'd love to hate. But trust me, she will make you curl up into a ball LAUGHING. A must read!
This has to be one of my most favourite books in. the. world. Unlike SATC, Clarissa (the protagonist) can't be bothered with a high flying career as her and all her friends find it much more fun to catch men. Any men. Call me stupid, but this book is quite easily the funniest book i have ever read. So it might be SATC, but these four girls have more gumption then any of those half soaked NYC "women". This book has a simple message - go out, have fun! Live your life...don't turn into a perma-tan ex-AMW chatting up any old person with a pulse. Girl power at its peak!!!
