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.

    "Very Disappointed!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I loved The Devil Wears Prada and was very excited when I saw the sequel. I should have listened to the reviews! This book was very disappointing. The characters were shallow and annoying. The witty, smart Andy from the first book has grown up into a whiny woman with no self esteem. In the entire book, she can't make a single decision or deal with any situations that life brings her way.

    The story line was another huge disappointment. Two-thirds of this book deals with pregnancy, gory birthing details and describing babies. Not at all what you'd expect from Devil Wears Prada type of book. The last third deals with shallow characters who can't deal with life. Miranda is hardly present in the story.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lauren Weisberger again?

    I would, but after carefully reading the reviews.


    What didn’t you like about Megan Hilty’s performance?

    She was just okay. Should have kept the original Andy narrator.


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

    No. Not even close to what I was expecting and was excited about.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for a fun summer listen, look elsewhere.

    "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.

    "HORRIBLE BAIT AND SWITCH.....WASTE OF MY TIME"
    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.....

    A school administrator and avid reader and listener of books. At least an hour of every day is spent in the car, and that's where the bulk of my listening is done. I tend to listen to books on "faster" mode so I can get through more books!

    "Not worthy of Prada"

    If you must read this book, read it, don't listen to it. The narration by Megan Hilty is painful and should be avoided, which is a shame since she is a darling on Broadway.

    The story is so unsatisfying as to be a near, if not complete, waste of time. There is none of the charm of the original book, and this contrived story is only a meager attempt at reprising the original greatness.

    "Silly and Tedious"

    What a mistake this book was. If you are looking for another Devil Wears Prada this IS NOT it. I was so looking forward to this sequel. In fact, I listened to The Devil Wears Prada again to provide more context and really enjoy this book. I was entranced and very much enjoyed TDWP yet again. It really highlighted how dreary and boring this book is.

    If you want endless descriptions of Andy's baby, pregnancy, baby, delivery, baby routine, baby crying, baby, baby, baby mommy hood, baby Clementine, having to go to work and missing baby, and constantly thinking about baby then you will love it. I found it terribly tedious and I really wanted to like it. When you are not hearing about the baby Andy spends an inordinate amount of time being sick, being sad, whining and being totally unreasonable about the opportunity to sell the magazine she starts with Emily (from the first book).

    Do yourself a favor and skip this one. It is not worth the credit and it is hours of my life I could have spent doing something more enjoyable, like washing the dishes.

    "Worst listen ever!"
    What would have made Revenge Wears Prada better?

    A bonfire!


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

    Absolutely


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

    Narration was fine.


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

    Don't bother to put pen to paper with contrived, boring drivel.


    Any additional comments?

    Hated this book. I wish I could get my credit back.

    "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.

    "An interesting read"

    if you are thirteen. The first book was a fun read but this one is full contrived angst. It features a navel-gazing "heroine?" who consistently avoids dealing with her problems. When she finally gets around to taking action, the author serves up a jump in time--eg. she has a huge fight with her husband and best friend and suddenly it is a year later. No insights about dealing with the conflict, only the results. I kept envisioning Meryl Streep in the movie and hoping for a follow up. It is a good bet that we will not see Ms. Streep in the sequel because hopefully, Hollywood will overlook this bit of nonsense as should most readers.

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

    This author has done it again. The Devil Wears Prada was perfect -laugh out loud funny. Since reading it, I've tried one other book by the author and now Revenge. How this woman wrote Devil I don't know because Revenge will be the second book by her I'm not going to finish. The story is thin and not funny. The narrator is horrible. She basically reads the book to you with a slight attempt at some actual expression which falls flat. I can't believe I paid $20 for this.


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

    No.


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

    Anyone!


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

    So far, most.

    "Expected"

    When I heard that Lauren Weisberger released another "Wears Prada" book I was psyched. But sadly this one just didn't hit the mark. The quick witted and darling Andy Sachs returns. She becomes "besties" with Emily, her former nemesis from the "Runway".office. Andy is in a relationship with darling, handsome, patient and kind Max (who later in the book completely violates Andy's trust pretty much out of the blue with no real explanation). Andy and Emily start their own upscale bridal magazine called "The Plunge". Once they become successful, near the middle of the book finally Miranda appears. I had been wondering where is Miranda, that devil in Prada? Miranda is alternately sweet, kind and then her old predictable horrible self. Overall her interactions with the girls are fairly limited leaving the reader/listener wishing for more.
    This could have made for a fun quick paced story like the last one but it falls somewhat short.This story lacks cohesion. I'm not sure it's because this is a sequel or some other reason. However I'm still glad I listened... but wished for more.
