The original wasn't great literature, but it was fun and lively. If you're expecting more of the same, stop before you buy. This was phoned in. A ridiculous story, poorly written, vapid characters. Save your money.
I think what it really needs is a better writer and a better story
The characters were shallow, the plot progresses like a shopping list, and the main character has been reduced to the worst sort of hapless, whiny female stereotype that any self-respecting woman is going to hate.
I think narration is the least of this title's problems
Let's be honest: Lauren Weisberger is never going to be known for her ability to turn a phrase, but the original book was an amusing read. If nothing else, it was worth finishing just to see what Miranda would do next.Unfortunately, the well of source material appears to have dried up with the first book. If you want to listen to whiny, boring twit Andrea obsess about her playboy Ken doll of a husband for half the book, save yourself some money and pick up a paperback romance out of the bargain bin at your local bookstore. When the Devil finally does appear, she - like all the characters from the first novel - sports a personality transplant rendering her nothing like you'd expect. Then like all of the other unfinished plot points in this train wreck, she slips away without warning.Skip this and wait to see if Hollywood snaps it up for a sequel. They managed to salvage a great story out of the first, maybe they can do them same with this.
No. Someone should fire her editor because this book was terrible.
There is zero action, authentic dialogue or plot turns. Its almost like every chapter is a short story that Weisberger scribbled out for her writing group and then decided to slap them together and sell them as a book. Every single chapter ends with Andy deciding that despite all of her anxiety and internal debate she really does love her husband. Its disgustingly vapid.
She was fine. Its not her fault the book is a dud.
The baby. The husband. Neither are interesting and frankly contribute to Andy being an obnoxiously boring character. Oh and maybe the editor should have suggested including some, I don't know, revenge?
There was absolutely NOTHING special about this book. Typical wealthy New Yorker fairy tale gone bad and then turns out wealthy and happy? Are you serious? And the ending couldn't have been not only more rushed but stupid.
This book was not only a waste of time, but corny.
Megan was fine, the book was just horrible.
Stylish real closure
Andy is a class act in a fashion clad world. She brings a realistic air to the story and keeps you engaged.
There was very little definition in voices between characters, which was a let down.
Andy of course - to discuss mommy attire and sleep schedules.
Overall a good read and great finale to the devil in Prada
I think I made it to Chapter 3 then was soooo bored I had to turn it off. I will try this one again later.
The story line is trite and very difficult to get through; I found myself skipping ahead and then finally just opting out of listening to completion. It felt like one of those books that was written to ride on the coattails of a previous hit; but the author didn't try very hard!
We spent our book club talking about the numerous and frequent eye rolling moments of this book. I didn't connect with the characters and Andy was incredibly self-absorbed and whiney. Would not recommend.
Love books, reading or listening, wine and quiet evenings by the fire. Mystery's, paranormal, history and biographies.
the story was not the riveting story of the first the characters seem to have lost their color. the performance was bland and uninspired.
Yes. I loved The Devil Wears Prada, so I had high hopes for this book.
The main character Andy was very whiney and self absorbed.
