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)

    "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.

    After nine surgeries on my brain and looking at a tenth, audio is the choice for me to feel whole again. I am myself in the world of books!

    "Loved this book!"

    The writer and and the reader make this a great book. I have known bosses like that and found the same thoughts floating around my mind and I was thrilled to have someone carry them out for me. I think all working women should read this book!

    "What a Devil!"

    Loved this book; it was such a piece of wonderful fluff. I love the moral dilemma that Andrea experiences working for the boss from hell and the description of the fashion world was engrossing. I would have gotten the book sooner had I known the narrator was the same lady that did Memoirs of a Geisha--also a great book!

    "Very Addictive!"

    I spend 75% of my working day driving and although usually tedious, couldn't wait to get back on the road to continue listening to his story. After listening to Andrea's typical day, my own job doesn't sound so bad!

    "enjoyable"

    This was a very good book. It kept my attention and kept me from doing the things I should have done for a couple of days. The narrator was great. The story was good, although the main character was a little whinney. I liked it and would reccomend it to you!

    "Warning: Characters are Chic Fiction Flat"

    If you like the Nanny Diaries read by Julia Roberts than you'll love this book. Here again we have an abridged book read by first quality talent and a plot full of characters that are as flat as John Denver after the crash. The author of Bridgette Jone's Diary at least gave her characters some dimension. Here all the models are weight conscious snobs, all the assistants are sicophants, all the men are either exploitive or dependent dweebs and only our heroine has any degree of integrity. This novel falls into the first person trap of a world that solely depends on our narrator. Sure there is some truth to these portraits and sure there is a message to be found in keeping your career in proportion to the rest of your life, but more than anything else I felt like I had just listened to a parade of catty stereotypes and they had done nothing the least bit interesting or unexpected. My suggestion is if deciding between listening to this book of sitting in a cafe for an hour listening to other people conversation, go with the second. It'll be a lot more interesting.
