Summary:

A delightfully dishy novel about the all-time most impossible boss in the history of impossible bosses.

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 impossibly thin, heart-wrenchingly stylish women and beautiful men clad in fine-ribbed turtlenecks and tight leather pants that show off their lifelong dedication to the gym. 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 complaints about “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 and over Cosmopolitans at the trendiest cocktail parties. From sending the latest, not-yet-in-stores Harry Potter to Miranda’s children in Paris by private jet, to locating an unnamed antique store where Miranda had at some point admired a vintage dresser, 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 with orders barked over the phone. 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 or not the job is worth the price of her soul.

    Way better than the movie. Loved it.

    I understand that this is an old book but this should be re-recorded. The quality of the audio is not at par with the new books and the narration couldve been improved

  • Pinky T

    Book is way better than the movie. Don't know why the other reviewer says the movie is better, but she's crazy nuts! Narrator is outstanding as well!

  • Sarah C

    Another rare case when the movie is better than the book... It was a good book, the narrator was nice. Really hated Miranda from the very beginning!

  • Lindsay H

    Great listen, entertaining.

  • Katrnea

    This book is definetly different from the movie, which I liked... The only big problem that I had with it was the narrator. She sounded really dull and monotonous and was putting me to sleep. However, once I got past her narration I was able to enjoy the story... Also, the ending could have been better... I liked the movie ending tons better...

    Saw the movie first, maybe influenced how i felt about the book but I was expecting more excitement from the book, both in context and in the narrator's voice that I didn't get. Liked the storyline overall, just didn't have enough umph for me.

    This book was okay, much better than the movie. I think it would have been better with a more exciting narrator!

  • Peggy Stortz

    I couldn't quit listening to this book. The characters and situations are so realistic. I think this one is more a memoir than fiction. I do recommend it.

    Really enjoyed this book - it was funny & gave a great insight into the shallow world of high fashion. Good escape from one's everyday life in small cities not consumed with the latest Prada outfit or next haute fashion party. Hilliarious.
