    The sequel you’ve been waiting for: the follow-up to the sensational number-one best seller The Devil Wears Prada. Andrea "Andy" Sachs is on top of the world, running her own very successful high-fashion bridal magazine. But she got there with the help of her rolodex - actually, the rolodex of Miranda Priestly, her former nightmare of a boss. As Andy's success grows, she realizes she'll soon have to face Miranda. 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.

    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.....
