Highly recommend if you have an interest in human nature and emotions, would like an insight in to the fashion world and what people endure just to be a part of it.
We listened to this book on a long car trip, and we almost ran out of gas listening to it because we didn't want to stop!

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.
