Publisher's Summary

Andrea Sachs, a small-town girl fresh out of college, lands the job "a million girls would die for." Hired as the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the high-profile, fabulously successful editor of Runway magazine, Andrea finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn, a world populated by stylish women and beautiful men. With breathtaking ease, Miranda can turn each and every one of these hip sophisticates into a scared, whimpering child. The Devil Wears Prada gives a rich and hilarious new meaning to "the boss from Hell." Narrated in Andrea's smart, refreshingly disarming voice, it traces a deep, dark, devilish view of life at the top only hinted at in gossip columns. From sending the latest, not-yet-in-stores Harry Potter to Miranda's children in Paris by private jet, to serving lattes to Miranda at precisely the piping hot temperature she prefers, Andrea is sorely tested each and every day - and often late into the night. She puts up with it all by keeping her eyes on the prize: a recommendation from Miranda that will get Andrea a top job at any magazine of her choosing. As things escalate from the merely unacceptable to the downright outrageous, however, Andrea begins to realize that the job a million girls would die for may just kill her. And even if she survives, she has to decide whether the job is worth the price of her soul.

Critic Reviews

"Miranda's behavior is so insanely over-the-top that it's a gas to see what she'll do next, and to try to guess which incidents were culled from real life." (Amazon.com)
"Weisberger has penned a comic novel that manages to rise to the upper echelons of the chick-lit genre." (Publishers Weekly)

A light read but entertaining

This book is pure junk food: No substance for a literary mind but a great read for giving your brain a rest. The length is good and the story keeps moving in this abridged addition. There were no preachy or long, whiny diatribes of the injustices Andrea suffered at the hands of her boss, (which I absolutely hated in the Nanny Diaries.) However, it annoyed me that the author weakly tried to tackle a moral/social issue (which is more important, job or friends). I think it detracted from the strengths of the book, which were its gossipy look into fashion publishing and those wonderful interactions with the devil herself, Miranda Priestly.

Could not listen to reader's delivery

The story is similar in theme to "The Nanny Diaries" (young woman works for affluent female "Boss from Hell". I tried to enjoy the story, but the reader's delivery was absolutely unbearable to listen to. The delivery was flat, drippy, emotionless. I think I'll go to the library and borrow the printed book to read.
