Charlie is a washed out Hollywood producer sinking into debt with no way out. Then a mysterious man shows up at his Debtor's Anonymous meeting with an offer he can't refuse. Soon Charlie is deeply mired in a reality show about an Uzbek warlord, madly dodging bullets and tweaking subtitles, trying to stay alive and to keep his crazy show alive. Eventually it will all fall apart, the only question is when. Hilarious! The Manhattan Beach Project is the perfect parody of the reality show craze. Peter Lefcourt has no mercy for anyone connected to the show or any aspect of this insane world. Yet his characters are so likable just because they are so flawed. I was cheering for Charlie even as I was groaning at each indiscretion and phony setup. Tom Weiner is the reader for this audio and he does a superb job. His deep, gravely voice adds just the right touch of irony. I highly recommend this audio book if you need a good laugh!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
