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.

    "Surprisingly Bad"
    What disappointed you about Revenge Wears Prada?

    The heroine was completely unlikeable. She was self-centered, harsh and unforgiving. Also, the plot really went nowhere. The disjointed book meandered about and totally lacked focus. I liked The Devil Wears Prada and was looking forward to the sequel, but I wish I had not read this as I just hated Nady Sachs. By the end I was pulling for Miranda Priestly.


    Has Revenge Wears Prada turned you off from other books in this genre?

    NO, but has turned me of of this author


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator seemed to have no connection with the story she was telling. She used this faux chipper tone to describe serious scenes, and was just far too "precious."


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

    disappointment. frustration. anger at the main character.

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

    Megan Hilty was the best thing about this book!


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

    Such a disappointment. It was an epilogue not a sequel! Especially such a highly anticipated follow-up 10... I repeat 10 years in the making! Blah! Honestly, Lauren Weisberger could have saved us all the expense and made this an epilogue at the end of The Devil Wears Prada the book or one of those "the credit" snazzy things they do after movies. It did not need to be an entire book. It was a waste.

    Bland story without the exciting character story lines of the first book. Completely boring. Waste of money. No real plot.

    No but has turned me off this author


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Megan Hilty?

    Narrator was fine

    Anger due to cost. Huge disappointment

    "Terrible - Bait & Switch is right!!!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If this was actually a sequel to Revenge Wears Prada, this would be 5 stars. Just because you use the same names as a prior book doesn't make the subsequent book a sequel!


    What was most disappointing about Lauren Weisberger’s story?

    The most disappoint thing was that this was not a sequel to Revenge Wears Prada!!!! It was just a story about people with the same name....and the story was very weak and shallow.


    Did Megan Hilty do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes. The reader was fine.


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

    Anger and disappointment - angry that I wasted a credit and soooooooo disappointed because I love, love, loved Revenge Wears Prada.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your credits or time with this. Terrible.

    "Not enough of Miranda"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really. I was expecting something more like Devil Wears Prada with the tension and colorful characters and Emily's snippiness. There is almost none of that here; the entire book is focused on Andi and her marriage and baby, with the constant threat of the magazine being sold. Miranda is hardly in the story, and I got tired of Andi's constant whining.

    "Faux Pas"
    Would you try another book from Lauren Weisberger and/or Megan Hilty?

    Of course. I've enjoyed most other books by Lauren Weisberger, and Megan Hilty did a fine job with the material she was given. This story line was just....defeating.


    Has Revenge Wears Prada turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not at all.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Her performance was fine, but bordered on deflated, as if she were bored with the material. She made Andy, the lead character, seem like a hipster...unimpressed with everything and everyone...of course, this was most likely because the author's doing.


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

    The note from her (future) mother-in-law. It should have been something more dramatic. I don't think any bride would have freaked out to the extent that Andy did over a lame note like that...I guess we were supposed to assume that pregnancy hormones were in play? Also...Alex. Ugh, I thought we were done with him. The first book did such a good job of tying up that relationship.


    Any additional comments?

    This story line just fell completely flat. The fashion aspect that I LOVED in the original is almost completely gone. There is not enough Miranda to make her threats seem viable. Andy is just...annoying. She had the courage to tell Miranda Priestly to go F*&% herself in the middle of Paris Fashion Week, but couldn't find the nerve to ask her fiancé/husband about a note she found from his mother? Come On. The character completely lost her backbone. The most exciting thing she did was charter an airplane for a sick Emily. And don't even get me started on Alex. Whiney, needy, holier-than-thou Alex. UGH.I guess I just find everything a little too unreal...nightmares, therapy, anxiety, 10 years after leaving a job? Andy seems so much weaker than I thought. Disappointed. Totally disappointed.

    "I am very disappointed."
    What would have made Revenge Wears Prada better?

    Okay so is it my imagination or did Andrea turn into a ridiculous whining drama queen. For goodness sakes I am on chapter 8 and I have stopped my audio book I am debating to finish it or delete it. Andrea's character dribbles on so much my energy has been leached out of me and I just can't listen anymore.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I am debating if I have the strength to continue listening to Andrea dribble on or delete the book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Maybe the reader should have listened to the first book and taken some notes.


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

    Silent low irritation.


    Any additional comments?

    I really was looking forward to this book but I just can't get into such a tragic weak character. Really... terror dreams about her boss years later? Did she get stuck in a concentration camp at Runway or something?

    "Ugh"

    I was very disappointed after I finished this book. Although Megan Hilty did an okay job with this book I felt that that author just rushed writing it.

    Not at ALL like the first book. So if I had to do it all over again, I would of passed on this book and purchased something else.

    "Horrible sequel to Devil Wears Prada"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This book would have been ok if it had a storyline or suspense or anything! It was so boring.


    What was most disappointing about Lauren Weisberger’s story?

    There was a lack of storyline, follow through. Andy's character was annoying and whiny. I didn't feel bad for her but I felt horrible for her husband, Max. She was bratty and condescending. Storylines just fizzled out and I had to stop listening because it was so bad.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator could not have made this horrible book any better.


    What character would you cut from Revenge Wears Prada?

    Andy, Max....most of them

    "A perfect way to wrap up in Prada"
    If you could sum up Revenge Wears Prada in three words, what would they be?

    Stylish real closure


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Andy is a class act in a fashion clad world. She brings a realistic air to the story and keeps you engaged.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    There was very little definition in voices between characters, which was a let down.


    If you could take any character from Revenge Wears Prada out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Andy of course - to discuss mommy attire and sleep schedules.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall a good read and great finale to the devil in Prada
