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)

    "Lighthearted listen"

    I was excited to know that this reader also provided the voices for Memoirs of a Geisha, a book which is still one of my favorites. Unfortunately for her, she got stuck with "Andrea" the main character who is whiny, wimpy, and pathetic at times....so it makes it hard to enjoy the storyteller. But otherwise the book is good....loved Miranda, the killer boss, and all other workers at Runway. Thought this book would have been better if they continued telling the story without Andrea, but rather kept up with Miranda's antics and such. For as light hearted as it is, I mean really, no depth here in this story, the author tried to get too moral at the end with Alex and Andrea's roommate Lil...that part got boring. Oh well.

    "the title is the most interesting part"

    I really wanted to like this book. I really did. I even enjoyed the Nanny Diary, but this book was rather tedious. The narrator just goes on and on and on and on. My friends and I all kept waiting for something to happen...it never did:( Be forewarned that this book may be a slightly better read than a listen.
