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.

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.
NO, but has turned me of of this author
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."
disappointment. frustration. anger at the main character.
Megan Hilty was the best thing about this book!
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
Narrator was fine
Anger due to cost. Huge disappointment
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!
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.
Yes. The reader was fine.
Anger and disappointment - angry that I wasted a credit and soooooooo disappointed because I love, love, loved Revenge Wears Prada.
Don't waste your credits or time with this. Terrible.
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.
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.
Not at all.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I am debating if I have the strength to continue listening to Andrea dribble on or delete the book.
Maybe the reader should have listened to the first book and taken some notes.
Silent low irritation.
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?
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.
This book would have been ok if it had a storyline or suspense or anything! It was so boring.
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.
The narrator could not have made this horrible book any better.
Andy, Max....most of them
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
