Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns | [Lauren Weisberger]

Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns

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.

Publisher's Summary

The sequel you’ve been waiting for: the follow-up to the sensational number-one best seller The Devil Wears Prada.

Eight years have passed since Andrea "Andy" Sachs quit the job "a million girls would die for" working for Miranda Priestly at Runway magazine - a dream that turned out to be a nightmare. Now Andy’s on the top of the world: She’s writing and reporting to her heart’s content; running The Plunge, her wildly successful high-fashion bridal magazine with Miranda’s other ex-assistant, Emily; and most importantly, getting married to the scion of a storied media family and the love of her life.

But the night before her wedding, Andy can’t sleep. As happy as she is - as happy as she should be - she’s still haunted by the specter of her former boss. Maybe it’s survivor syndrome? Or maybe it’s justifiable, self-inflicted, paranoia. From the start, Andy and Emily have felt entitled to use their rolodex of contacts - Miranda’s contacts - from Runway as they make their way in the magazine world. As The Plunge succeeds, Andy and Emily realize they’ll soon come face to face with their former tormenter at industry functions, award ceremonies, and even weddings. 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.

Karma’s a bitch. And Andy’s efforts to build a bright new life have led her directly to the one she fled - and into the path of the Devil herself.

    "would rather pull out toe nails than listen"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    people that don't understand english


    What could Lauren Weisberger have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    not written it


    Would you be willing to try another one of Megan Hilty’s performances?

    reader was fine.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment and anger -- the original was a fun read and i was looking forward to the sequel. total disappointment and waste of my precious tim on earth.


    Any additional comments?

    reminded my of watching Anne Hathaway at awards ceremonies -- you knew her over the top reactions were totally bogus, overly melodramatic and didn't really make sense if you had any understanding of reality .... this book was just like that.

    "A wimpy tirade..."
    Any additional comments?

    Not that the Devil wears Prada was the best book ever written but I thought it to be a good listen (read). Boy howdy am I disappointed with Revenge Wears Prada. Andy grew as a character and in strength at the end of the last book but now where did she go? This book just is a long, wimpy tirade by Andy and I grew to not like her - and in turn the narrator. This book lost the innocence and the struggle with the antagonist Miranda. I found myself skipping ahead especially during the trivial details of living with a baby and not sure I will bother to finish it.

    Story
    "Boredom and Bad Prose"
    What would have made Revenge Wears Prada better?

    It would have been better to have not bothered to write this at all.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    A good writer, good prose, great story, something I normally do. This was an extremely bad choice. I have no doubt that the original movie, The Devil Wears Prada, was far superior to the written word.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was fine, however, a lesson or two in pronunciation would have been a good idea.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None I didn't even bother to finish it. It was too painful to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste money buying it.

    "I wanted to like this book"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I loved The Devil Wears Prada and really hoped this would be as good. It wasn't. The narrator was so-so, but the writing was just awful. The endless descriptions of the baby's skin, hair, smell, etc. were nauseating.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator emoted a bit too much, especially when describing Andi's thoughts about her husband or baby. It was annoying.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    This book was a major disappointment.

    "Slow Moving"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I was so excited to start this immediately after The Devil Wears Prada and was a bit let down. The story is slow moving and there were some stark inconsistencies from the first book. It was difficult to relate the characters from one book to the next. I'm trying to enjoy this book independent from the first but it is a challenge. I'm on Chapter 11 and will give it some more time to win me over. The Devil Wears Prada was absolutely gripping so again, this one is a let down.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lauren Weisberger again?

    yes


    Would you be willing to try another one of Megan Hilty’s performances?

    not sure


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    most likely

    "Boring!"
    What disappointed you about Revenge Wears Prada?

    Story line moved too slowly. I kept waiting for something to happen. It wasn't a bad story line; it just could have been told in a short story.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lauren Weisberger again?

    Not sure.


    Which character – as performed by Megan Hilty – was your favorite?

    No one particular character but Megan Hilty did a great job. Created great visuals.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Revenge Wears Prada?

    So much discussion and thoughts throughout about husband's possible infidelity before marriage. It became an unhealthy obsession but turned out she couldn't trust him. Should have gone with her gut to start with and not gotten married to him.

    Anglophile. Prefer only British fiction and mysteries. Good translations of Italian, too.

    Story
    "Curiously interesting"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Revenge Wears Prada to be better than the print version?

    As I am legally blind, I am unable to read a print version. Ergo, Audible.


    If you’ve listened to books by Lauren Weisberger before, how does this one compare?

    I think the Devil Wears Prada was very good. The reader was superb. At the time, it was cutting edge and also very funny while at the same time with serious undertones about real problems.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I cannot answer this question. The sequel was different. What did annoy me a bit was that Andy seemed so incapable of speaking for herself or acting - when she is protrayed as an intelligent, feminist woman. When the reader can "see" what is going on and Andy cannot see this, it is unbelievable.


    If you could rename Revenge Wears Prada, what would you call it?

    I don't know. The title is misleading.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought the character development was lacking in this sequel. I wanted to know more about Lily and found Emily's character not liking. Also, I thought Max was one-dimensional. I would have enjoyed a fun scene with Christian. Also, too much baby-icky details.

    "The first book was more entertaining"

    Let me start this off by saying I was very eager to listen to this book and I loved the first book. This book picks up about 10 years after the original book ends and it starts off very slow. It's not nearly as entertaining as the original book. Overall I enjoyed catching up with your original characters, I just wish that there was more excitement and sass in this book. If you're looking to pass the time this will suffice.

    "Pretty good"

    I wish this story has the same narrator as Devil Wears Prada. Story was pretty good. Andy grew up, got married and had a baby. Completely different person from before. Living proof that it happens. For the purposes of entertainment in the car while on biz assignments, I was satisfied.
