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.

Oh Andy how I missed you...

If you liked Andy in the first you cant not like this book. Same ol Andy just a little older. I loved the glimpse into her life to see what she is up to now and how people from her past show up throughout. It was well written and I was sad when it ended.

Meh

What did you like best about Revenge Wears Prada? What did you like least?

The reader did a great job. Overall, the story felt even shallower than the clackers at Runway.

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

Not really. It is a sequel designed to make money based on the success of the first, much more enjoyable, novel.

What about Megan Hilty’s performance did you like?

She did a good job capturing the personality of the various characters through her performance.

Do you think Revenge Wears Prada needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Um, no. If there was another sequel and it was any more shallow or predictable, it would probably encourage me to not even recommend The Devil Wears Prada. The story was very predictable with the exception of the character Max who was given short shrift in terms of character development (and in a book about fashion, that's saying something). I felt like I was channeling the movie Clueless and just felt whelmed. While I disliked how Andy's character seemed to deviate from who she was in the first book, I stuck with it and finished it. I guess if you have a credit to burn and time to listen, it's not horrible...but it's just not that great. That's all.

The first is always better

What disappointed you about Revenge Wears Prada?

Felt like the story was forced and conflict just thrown in out of nowhere.

Would you ever listen to anything by Lauren Weisberger again?

Maybe...

What character would you cut from Revenge Wears Prada?

The old boyfriend from the first book, not Alex, but the other. Serves no real purpose.

Any additional comments?

Felt like the cussing was excessive. Let us use real words, please.

Tedious

What would have made Revenge Wears Prada better?

The Devil Wears Prada was a fun look at the underbelly of high-end fashion publishing. I wanted the idealistic and capable characters to triumph. This book is a boring look at the world of mediocre niche publishing and the tired and glamourless new mom who settled for a bland spouse that runs it. There wasn't a second of fantasy that I could aspire to inhabit in this book.

Surprisingly Bad

What disappointed you about Revenge Wears Prada?

The heroine was completely unlikeable. She was self-centered, harsh and unforgiving. Also, the plot really went nowhere. The disjointed book meandered about and totally lacked focus. I liked The Devil Wears Prada and was looking forward to the sequel, but I wish I had not read this as I just hated Nady Sachs. By the end I was pulling for Miranda Priestly.

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

NO, but has turned me of of this author

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator seemed to have no connection with the story she was telling. She used this faux chipper tone to describe serious scenes, and was just far too "precious."

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

disappointment. frustration. anger at the main character.

Where was the revenge!?

Which character – as performed by Megan Hilty – was your favorite?

Megan Hilty was the best thing about this book!

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Such a disappointment. It was an epilogue not a sequel! Especially such a highly anticipated follow-up 10... I repeat 10 years in the making! Blah! Honestly, Lauren Weisberger could have saved us all the expense and made this an epilogue at the end of The Devil Wears Prada the book or one of those "the credit" snazzy things they do after movies. It did not need to be an entire book. It was a waste.

Big disappointment

Bland story without the exciting character story lines of the first book. Completely boring. Waste of money. No real plot.

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

No but has turned me off this author

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

Narrator was fine

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Terrible - Bait & Switch is right!!!

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

If this was actually a sequel to Revenge Wears Prada, this would be 5 stars. Just because you use the same names as a prior book doesn't make the subsequent book a sequel!

What was most disappointing about Lauren Weisberger’s story?

The most disappoint thing was that this was not a sequel to Revenge Wears Prada!!!! It was just a story about people with the same name....and the story was very weak and shallow.

Did Megan Hilty do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes. The reader was fine.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger and disappointment - angry that I wasted a credit and soooooooo disappointed because I love, love, loved Revenge Wears Prada.

Any additional comments?

Don't waste your credits or time with this. Terrible.

Not enough of Miranda

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Not really. I was expecting something more like Devil Wears Prada with the tension and colorful characters and Emily's snippiness. There is almost none of that here; the entire book is focused on Andi and her marriage and baby, with the constant threat of the magazine being sold. Miranda is hardly in the story, and I got tired of Andi's constant whining.

Faux Pas

Would you try another book from Lauren Weisberger and/or Megan Hilty?

Of course. I've enjoyed most other books by Lauren Weisberger, and Megan Hilty did a fine job with the material she was given. This story line was just....defeating.

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

Not at all.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Her performance was fine, but bordered on deflated, as if she were bored with the material. She made Andy, the lead character, seem like a hipster...unimpressed with everything and everyone...of course, this was most likely because the author's doing.

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

The note from her (future) mother-in-law. It should have been something more dramatic. I don't think any bride would have freaked out to the extent that Andy did over a lame note like that...I guess we were supposed to assume that pregnancy hormones were in play? Also...Alex. Ugh, I thought we were done with him. The first book did such a good job of tying up that relationship.

Any additional comments?

This story line just fell completely flat. The fashion aspect that I LOVED in the original is almost completely gone. There is not enough Miranda to make her threats seem viable. Andy is just...annoying. She had the courage to tell Miranda Priestly to go F*&% herself in the middle of Paris Fashion Week, but couldn't find the nerve to ask her fiancé/husband about a note she found from his mother? Come On. The character completely lost her backbone. The most exciting thing she did was charter an airplane for a sick Emily. And don't even get me started on Alex. Whiney, needy, holier-than-thou Alex. UGH.I guess I just find everything a little too unreal...nightmares, therapy, anxiety, 10 years after leaving a job? Andy seems so much weaker than I thought. Disappointed. Totally disappointed.
