    One thought on “The Devil Wears Prada

    1. Darth J on said:

      3.5 starsIn Defense of Miranda PriestlyThe premise of this novel as most know it is OMG, my boss is a total dragon lady , but I think that is both an unfair assumption and oversimplification Little background is given of the title character other than she grew up in a lower class family, changed her name, and worked her way up the corporate ladder to her current position as editor in chief The audience isn t given much than that to round out her character, though Meryl Streep gives her depth in [...]

    2. Samantha on said:

      God have mercy, I finally finished this horrific book Honestly, it wasn t so bad, just tedious and repetitive I picked it because a the movie was coming out and b I recognized the title as a popular book, albeit a couple years ago The premise to the book is that a young woman takes a Junior Assistant position at a high fashion magazine and the She Devil who runs the show The movie had the same premise, but that s practically where the similarities end.Andrea Sachs takes the job, even though her [...]

    3. Jennifer on said:

      This is one of the only books I have ever read in my entire life where the film actually improved my perception It took me about three years to read this, and the only reason I ever finished it was because everyone else seemed to think it was so great, I thought I must be missing something I am generally bothered by books and films wherein the main character is offered an incredible opportunity, but because they are worried they are sacrificing themselves, they toss it out the window I am willin [...]

    4. Miranda Reads on said:

      The movie was too good Huuuuuuuuge gulf between the book and the film I kept thinking maybe the beginning was just slow Maybe the middle needed a bit time Despite all my deep breaths and meditation, I could not stand this book The main character Andrea is so wholly irredeemable that she ruins the book Sure, she sacrifices her a few years for Miranda ha name buddies Priestly but Andrea whines her way through every little task and I lost all sympathy within the first chapter Her derision towards [...]

    5. Carol on said:

      I read this a few years ago, and still remember what a rollicking good ride it was I was mesmerized by the horror It was like watching a train wreck in slow motion In a good way, that is I m sure there s a good way to watch a train wreck if we think about it long enough In the interest of full disclosure, I spent several years in what we shall charitably call the fashion industry So young, insecure, underpaid, working for creative tyrants, living on coffee and celery, and not being able to affor [...]

    6. Michelle on said:

      A woman came up to me while I was reading this book and said, Oh, how is that book I ve been meaning to read it I answered, Um, well, it s kind of fun She raised her eyebrows at me I see I added, I wouldn t pay full price for it I got it on sale for, like, a dollar She nodded as she began to walk away, Okay, I know what you re saying I can explain if you still feel like reading this book Honestly, I won t stop you from reading The Devil Wears Prada, I just don t suggest you push off absolutely [...]

    7. Belinda on said:

      The only reason I waste words on this piece of trash is that it holds the distinction of being THE WORST BOOK I EVER READ The title was held previously for a good 15 years previously by The Bridges of Madison County, and it took some DOING to surpass that awfulness.I could write for three days about how much I hated this book I still can t believe I finished it, and the only explanation I have is that it was kind of like not being able to look away from a trainwreck Actually, trainwreck is a com [...]

    8. Jack on said:

      Not bad, I suppose especially interesting when compared to the film adaptation, which I d seen first.The movie was no great shakes, really, although the cast did a solid job with what they d been given Still, I sought out the book because I felt that, as with most film adaptations, a lot of depth had probably been jettisoned, and rightly so, in the translation to the screen After all, a novel can tackle a lot than two hours of screen time can.Imagine my surprise to find that the movie had dept [...]

    9. Erica on said:

      this book blows it s poorly written, the author uses the same words over and over, characters just do things at random and don t seem to have identifiable personalities of their own if i was still in 5th grade and decided to write a book about working at a fashion magazine when i m all grown up, this is what it would be like i hate that the girl who wrote this is probably a millionaire i d like to hit her with a rock as far as i can figure, it gets one star because she bothered to type it instea [...]

    10. Casey on said:

      This book was terrible, and I m someone who enjoys chick lit The Devil Wears Prada is a roman a clef by Lauren Weisberger, a mediocre writer who takes herself too seriously The plot is just a series of bad decisions made by the novel s unlikeable protagonist Andy Sachs, who thinks the best way to become a writer for the New Yorker is by becoming an assistant at a Vogue style magazine for a year Andy spends most of the novel whining about her mundane entry level job and stealing designer clothes [...]

      i was reading this book at the same time i was working in a very similar environment as andy, the main character i laughed and cried with her because i could relate to her character so much miranda liked her perrier placed everyday on a certain side of her desk my old boss, mehmet, liked his evian room temperature from the bakery across the street miranda would dump her coat and bags on andy every morning mehmet would hold out his arms for me to put his YSL coat on and bow his head down for me t [...]

      2.5 starsI m going to be quite honest here I saw the movie before I read the book Several times, in fact The movie came out in 2006, when I wasn t a reader yet The Devil Wears Prada is one of those movies that they play on TV quite regularly, and is one of those movies that I almost always watch when it is Because it s a really great and entertaining movie Anne Hathaway s, Meryl Streep s, Stanley Tucci s and Emily Blunt s performances are absolutely top notch So when I saw the book in the librar [...]

      So let me get this straight A girl who doesn t care about fashion gets a job at a fashion magazine, bitches about fashion, fucks up at her job, and turns into the thing she hates by screwing her friends Why does this sound like Mean Girls without the comedy FAIL.

      Reading crime 5000 for the month of January.I saw the movie first.I loved the movie.This is the first time I have read this book.I didn t like the book.Before I begin I should say some nice words While reading this book, I kept picturing the actors actresses from the movie It was like re watching the movie again but in my head I d rather watch the movie it was less painful.The Devil Wears Prada was not a perfect book It really wasn t It was beyond terrible It had so many flaws that I don t reall [...]

    15. Rebecca McNutt on said:

      The Devil Wears Prada I have yet to see the film adaptation , is a quite bizarre yet creative and comedic book that anyone who has ever worked a lousy job will be able to relate to.

    16. Cassandra Babino on said:

      I kept thinking THIS WILL BE A GREAT MOVIE but never a good book I was really disappointed and on a side note when I DID watch the movie I was so disappointed because all I could think was This would be a GREAT book.

    17. Nicola on said:

      Well, that was a waste of time I LOVE the film It s one of my favourites and I ve seen it dozens of times The book, however, was not even remotely impressive The dialogue was just soflat I felt no emotion in any of the characters and none of them really felt individual to me I couldn t bring myself to care about any of them and their interactions seemed so stiff and forced Most of the book is taken up with references to fashion labels, so much so that it was like reading one big giant advertisem [...]

    18. Megan Johnson on said:

      I really wasn t that into this book There were some parts of the book that were great, but mostly it was a VERY slow read and pretty hard to get into I think that it didn t help that I had watched the movie multiple times and LOVED it I had high expectations for this book and it did not deliver

    19. R on said:

      It s funny how you forget about a book I read this when it first came out 10 years ago and thought it was a fast, fluffy read, but nothing else really stuck w me Then, I saw the movie and thought I know it s been a while, but I really don t remember all this happening so, when I saw the book on the charity table, I figured it s only a quid, why not.Criminey, the things you forget like what a whiney and generally unlikeable person the main character is She bitches, she moans and she essentially s [...]

      I love these people so much that nothing else but The Devil Wears Prada could make me want to give them bloodied noses.

    21. Syndi on said:

      Oh I love this chick lit I enjoy the movie I can relate to the characters Having a nightmare boss who demands everything must be ready for her, is just funny as hell This is the ultimate chick lit.

    22. Lau on said:

      Llegu al libro por haber visto la pel cula sino no se hasta qu punto me hubiese interesado por l , y aunque esperaba que se parecieran, terminaron siendo dos historias muy diferentes Se mantiene la idea b sica de la jefa d spota, pero nada m s.El argumento es bastante sencillo, ya que gira en torno al trabajo de la protagonista y las relaciones y emociones pasan a un segundo o tercer plano adem s de que aunque quisiera seguir con su vida, no tendr a tiempo de hacerlo.El diablo viste de Prada me [...]

    23. Jamie on said:

      Where to start with this one Seldom have I ever read a book that actually made my blood boil with rage, but this did it I can, unfortunately, relate to the utter misery that Andy faces while at Runway, while my own clearly does not amount to her cataclysmic year of agony.Having seen the movie well over 20 times, I found the book to be very little like the movie in most regards The book is far depressing, but far real, and thus far enjoyable If you ve never read this book, do so in order to ga [...]

    24. Salwa on said:

      3.5 starsOverall, it was good I m quite suprise how much I love this book Surely, it started with a very slow and almost to the point boring that it took me ages just to reach 100 pages mark I actually stop reading and watched the movie instead But l m glad that it getting and interesting after 100 pages mark.I enjoy the day to day task that Andy had to deal with And Miranda way of bossing and scaring people around her was absolute b h But you can t called Miranda evil wears Prada if she was n [...]

    25. Ana T. on said:

      I finished The Devil Wear Prada last night I had some trouble getting into the book, those first descriptions of Andrea s adventures before joining the magazine were really not that interesting to me After she enters the magazine world I became interested in her relationship with everyone else Meaning I m not that into fashion so some people might actually appreciate the fashion angle in this book than me.Andrea Sachs, a small town girl fresh out of college, lands the job a million girls would [...]

    26. Katie on said:

      I picked this up because it was in the guest room at my aunt s beach house and it seemed like good summer is here, I just finished finals, don t make me think reading I think I read it in about 3 hours, and I couldn t remember a single thing that happened to the main character once I was done.In fact, if they hadn t come out with the movie which I m a big fan of, by the way , the book would have probably disappeared from my radar forever Nothing really happened in the book, which I objected to I [...]

      Desde que vi la pel cula me ena de la historia de Andrea, siempre me pregunte como seria trabajar para una empresa y si alg n d a tendr a una jefa como Miranda, la verdad es que no me ha tocado tan duro como a Andy, pero si me identifico con muchas cosas de esta historia.Siempre quise leer el libro, y al fin lo hice, y me ha encantado Es diferente a la pel cula no en la l nea base pero si en situaciones y algunos comportamientos de los personajes para tener en cuenta Pero la historia de este lib [...]

      Main character Andrea Sachs in her early 20 s wants to be a writer for the New Yorker, and lands a job as a junior assistant to this bitch magazine editor, Miranda Priestly She puts up with all her crap, thinking that perhaps Miranda might give her a good recommendation to the New Yorker after she has paid her dues I think I like the character of Andrea s best friend Lily the best she s such a free spirit although that characteristic gets her in trouble Andrea almost gives up the most important [...]
