    Andrea Sachs, a small-town girl fresh out of college, is hired as the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the successful editor of Runway magazine. Andrea finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn. As things escalate from the merely unacceptable to the downright outrageous, 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.

    Howard says: "You won't be able to stop the player"
    "Wins the award for most shallow character..."
    Overall

    In every other sentence of this book, the main character whines about the unfairness of her boss, trouble with friends, etc. The remaining sentences are designed to try and dazzle readers by mentioning $1000 shoes and the "best restaurants", the "best parties", the "best people", etc. I'm not sure if describing the "glamour" of the fashionistas was meant to try and justify having sold herself out, but I find it impossible to sympathize with a girl that tries to take the easy way to her goals by selling out her dignity, then complains non-stop about it.
