Publisher's Summary

The sequel you’ve been waiting for: the follow-up to the sensational number-one best seller The Devil Wears Prada.
Eight years have passed since Andrea "Andy" Sachs quit the job "a million girls would die for" working for Miranda Priestly at Runway magazine - a dream that turned out to be a nightmare. Now Andy’s on the top of the world: She’s writing and reporting to her heart’s content; running The Plunge, her wildly successful high-fashion bridal magazine with Miranda’s other ex-assistant, Emily; and most importantly, getting married to the scion of a storied media family and the love of her life.
But the night before her wedding, Andy can’t sleep. As happy as she is - as happy as she should be - she’s still haunted by the specter of her former boss. Maybe it’s survivor syndrome? Or maybe it’s justifiable, self-inflicted, paranoia. From the start, Andy and Emily have felt entitled to use their rolodex of contacts - Miranda’s contacts - from Runway as they make their way in the magazine world. As The Plunge succeeds, Andy and Emily realize they’ll soon come face to face with their former tormenter at industry functions, award ceremonies, and even weddings. Still, Andy can hardly anticipate the horrifying reality that’s approaching - a reversal so profound that she will be squarely in Miranda’s crosshairs once more.
Karma’s a bitch. And Andy’s efforts to build a bright new life have led her directly to the one she fled - and into the path of the Devil herself.

Very Disappointed!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I loved The Devil Wears Prada and was very excited when I saw the sequel. I should have listened to the reviews! This book was very disappointing. The characters were shallow and annoying. The witty, smart Andy from the first book has grown up into a whiny woman with no self esteem. In the entire book, she can't make a single decision or deal with any situations that life brings her way.

The story line was another huge disappointment. Two-thirds of this book deals with pregnancy, gory birthing details and describing babies. Not at all what you'd expect from Devil Wears Prada type of book. The last third deals with shallow characters who can't deal with life. Miranda is hardly present in the story.


Would you ever listen to anything by Lauren Weisberger again?

I would, but after carefully reading the reviews.


What didn’t you like about Megan Hilty’s performance?

She was just okay. Should have kept the original Andy narrator.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No. Not even close to what I was expecting and was excited about.


Any additional comments?

If you are looking for a fun summer listen, look elsewhere.

HORRIBLE BAIT AND SWITCH.....WASTE OF MY TIME

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I NEVER WASTE MY TIME REVIEWING BOOKS BUT I AM SO INSULTED BY THE HORRIBLE MEDIOCRITY OF THIS BOOK THAT I FEEL THE NEED TO WARN ANY READER WHO MAY CONSIDER THIS A WORTHWHILE READ.....BASED ON THE FIRST BOOK (Which was also not very good, but at least it had a little drama based onreal life ) This book feels like the writer has done nothing since writing the first book other than attending baby classes and complaining about the world....This could have been at least a 2 star experience if it in any way followed up on the original story, The Devil Wears Prada,or if it had any drama or REVENGE for that matter. THERE IS ONE DINNER WITH THE ANTAGONIST OF THE FIRST BOOK AND THE REST OF THE BOOK IS ABOUT A PATHETIC, WHINY, INCAPABLE GIRL WORRYING ABOUT HER PERFECT HUSBAND NOT LOVING HER ENOUGH, MOMMY AND ME GROUPS, ETC.....TOTAL BORE.....SHOULD BE CALLED "WHINERS CAN'T WRITE". THE ONLY DEMOGRAPHIC WHO COULD APPRECIATE THIS BOOK IS THE TWEEN DEMOGRAPHIC......


Has Revenge Wears Prada turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yes, I rarely read (or listen) to silly books like this but many friends mentioned it prior to its publication, so I read it.


What about Megan Hilty’s performance did you like?

She was quite good. She managed to go from whiny Andrea to the nanny from Australia (or New Zealand or South Africa) without a hitch.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Revenge Wears Prada?

This book is really bad.....If I were editor, I would have been looking back at the Devil Wears Prada and forward to a possible movie deal. I would have had SOME, ANY drama and REVENGE and SOME, ANY Miranda Priestly tidbits....This writer is obviously a ONE HIT WONDER. She has no talent. Given the platform she received from the first book, she completely failed at bringing a decent story.....IF THE MAIN CHARACTER WAS AN ACQUAINTANCE OF MINE, I WOULD HAVE TO SLAP HER. The first half of the book is all about her ridiculously perfect Prince Charming fiance/husband who she (a loser) actually considers not marrying because his mother doesn't approve of her......IF THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE A MODEL OF A HIGH POWERED MAGAZINE EDITOR, IT IS PATHETIC....THIS GIRL WOULD NOT LAST A DAY IN A WORLD WHERE EVERYONE DOESN'T FAWN ON HER....


Any additional comments?

AGAIN, HORRIBLE.....I READ 40-50 BOOKS PER YEAR AND THIS IS BY FAR THE WORST ONE I HAVE READ IN YEARS.....
