Publisher's Summary

Andrea Sachs, a small-town girl fresh out of college, lands the job "a million girls would die for." Hired as the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the high-profile, fabulously successful editor of Runway magazine, Andrea finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn, a world populated by stylish women and beautiful men. With breathtaking ease, Miranda can turn each and every one of these hip sophisticates into a scared, whimpering child.

The Devil Wears Prada gives a rich and hilarious new meaning to "the boss from Hell." Narrated in Andrea's smart, refreshingly disarming voice, it traces a deep, dark, devilish view of life at the top only hinted at in gossip columns. From sending the latest, not-yet-in-stores Harry Potter to Miranda's children in Paris by private jet, to serving lattes to Miranda at precisely the piping hot temperature she prefers, Andrea is sorely tested each and every day - and often late into the night. She puts up with it all by keeping her eyes on the prize: a recommendation from Miranda that will get Andrea a top job at any magazine of her choosing. As things escalate from the merely unacceptable to the downright outrageous, however, 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.

What the Critics Say

"Miranda's behavior is so insanely over-the-top that it's a gas to see what she'll do next, and to try to guess which incidents were culled from real life." (Amazon.com)
"Weisberger has penned a comic novel that manages to rise to the upper echelons of the chick-lit genre." (Publishers Weekly)

    "If you've ever had a boss you couldn't stand..."

    I loved this book; it made me think back on all the 'crappy job' stories I and my friends have ever told! The narrator was fabulous and the story was so engaging I ended up taking it in from my car several times to listen longer.

    "Fun listen, but I hated the ending!"

    So really, it is worth letting someone treat you like shit for a year and completely alienating all your friends and family because you can take your free clothes and sell them and then write up stories and make money off of them. She is clearly enlightened.

    "he buzzed me through like I was someone who mattered" .... what the @#$%^!.

    Terrible ending... But fun listen up to the last hour or so, then I got annoyed.

    "Delightful"

    This book was so delightful that I found myself wishing for more traffic in my daily commute just so I could listen longer. Andrea, the main character, lands a job working for the editor of a popular fashion magazine. A job that, she is constantly reminded, "a million girls would die for." But, of course, Andrea isn't one of them because she doesn't care about fashion, and even those million girls would think twice if they knew what a loon Andrea's boss was. It's light and funny, and a great escape from your own job's frustrations because at least your own boss cannot possibly be this insane! Particularly perfect listening for your commute to and from work each day.

    "Outstanding narration"

    Most likely I would have enjoyed this book far less if I had read it rather than listened to it. The narrator helped soften the underlying whiny perspective of the author. All of her voices were quite engaging and excellent, especially Miranda's.
    I like to listen to a lot of spy thrillers and this was a welcome change of pace. A great listen while driving or ironing.

    "Lots of fun"

    This was a fun, light "read". I loved the narrator's/Andrea's wit and sarcasm towards her boss! Don't do the abridged, listen to the long version! Makes my past "bad" bosses look good!

    "Can't say enough"

    I loved this book and was surprised I did. I hadn't anticipated this much fun and laughter. The narrator matches the author's voice perfectly! Also, this provided some new insights to the fashion world, which I could appreciate.

    "Like listening to a train wreck (in a good way)"

    You can not help but to realize that your job is not that bad when listening to this poor girl's day to day life with the boss from hell. I would strongly recommend as a great listen for escapism!

    "Boring, poorly written and poorly read"

    I was really hoping for another fun book like the Nanny Diaries, but was very disappointed. It was just not very interesting. I couldn't like any of the characters, including the main charachter, Andrea. The narrator made all the men sound sleazy, even the "nice guy" boyfriend. The writer often repeated lines and comments where it wasn't necessary, so I kept thinking I had somehow skipped backward.

    Don't waste your time or money.

    "So much fun"

    What a fun book. Great timing and pace, I loved it, actually laughing out loud with regularity. The name "Andrea" will never be the same to you again. Listen to this sharp book and you'll know what I mean.

    "Eccentric bosses are so annoying"

    I thought "I" worked for an eccentric boss, but this one takes the cake!! Good story, easy listening and lightly entertaining and I learned a bit about Fashion which I didn't know. Reader was really good at getting sarcasm and subtle hints across to the listener and she was easy to understand.
