Publisher's Summary

The hotly-anticipated sequel to The Devil Wears Prada – the million copy bestseller that took the world by storm.

Everything’s in place for the season’s hottest launch: Tall latte (with two raw sugars)? Check. Gucci trench (draped over desk)? Check. Outrageous, unreasonable demands? Check.

Andy has just turned thirty and is an incredibly successful magazine editor, working closely with her best friend Emily, another Runway survivor. She’s about to get married – life’s on track and she’s been careful to stay clear of Miranda Priestly, her dreadful first boss. But Andy’s luck is running out. Miranda Priestly isn’t the kind of woman who hides in the background. She’s back… and more devilish than ever.

Boring Wears Prada

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

This story could have been titled "I have got a husband and a baby and I am the only woman ever to have done this". Pullleeeease!! Nothing happened until the second last chapter when she dumped her husband, admitttedly for a good reason.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I'm going back to the Mysteries and Thrillers list.

Did Laurel Lefkow do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Laurel Lefkow is always a good narrator.

What character would you cut from Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns?

Andy

Fun with interesting real life issues

I had only recently seen the film, The Devil Wears Prada and I certainly recommend seeing or reading that book before enjoying this one. For enjoy you will -- well, I did anyway. And the first rate narrator, Laurel Lefkow, enhanced the characters who were delightfully real.


It's about the racy cut-throat world of New York fashion and is probably as relevant to most readers as a fantasy novel. But the author managed to insert some pretty interesting real life conundrums about the role of the woman in a highly competitive and pretentious workplace and they were artfully, romantically and sympathetically resolved.

Please don't waste your money.

What would have made Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns better?

If the story actually had anything to do with the first book.

What could Lauren Weisberger have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

If the story had more substance and the characters had the same personalities they did in the first book. They lacked every quality that made the first book enjoyable.

How could the performance have been better?

The performance was done the best as the narrator possibly could given the lack of actual story.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None, whatsoever!!

Any additional comments?

This book actually made me fall asleep on occasions! The most boring book I'v ever read and I'v read a lot!!

A terrible first impression

Granted I have only listened to the first two chapters of this book before coming online to write this review but I think it at least says a lot that I was disappointed enough to do so. As a light and easy listen, Devil Wears Prada was a real hit with me- a funny and engaging story that I have returned to more than twice. I'm guessing that most people reading this will have thought the same (and if you haven't already listened to Devil...then navigate away from this page, and download that instead).

A key problem with this sequel is that it is written in the third person, rather than from Andy's perspective as in the first book. This leaves the listener feeling much further removed from the character this time around, and has made me wonder if I just never noticed that Andy was so irritating right from the start. Rather than seeming to be a fairly realistic young modern woman (career minded but still focused on friends, family and having a good time), this incarnation of Devil's central character seems to be almost entirely wrapped up in pink, girlish fairytales of knights, white horses, weddings and dresses (I'm serious- all of these get a mention in the first chapter).

It's fair to say that Devil...wasn't always consistent in the way Andy was portrayed (she apparently had no interest in fashion but for some reason her narration included a detailed description of every shoe, dress, nail polish she cast her eye over), but this is just ridiculous- I thought her dream was to write for The New Yorker..instead she's editing a bridal magazine called 'The Plunge'? Ok, so I haven't persisted far enough with this download to give a really fair assessment but I'm just glad that Audible allow returns- and, as it is pretty much crystal clear that this book was written to cash in on possible future movie rights, I just hope Meryl's got more sense.

(One last note- the only saving grace of this download as far as I can tell is the narrator Laurel Lefkow. I know a lot of people can find American accents a bit grating but Lefkow has a soft, emotive voice that I enjoy listening to. Unfortunately here, she just couldn't save the material- if you like her narration, and haven't heard 'The Time Traveller's Wife' (in which she plays Claire- the '..Wife") then do try that as the male narrator there is also great and the story far outranks its movie adaptation and anything by Lauren Weisberger...

A good sequel to the original.

If you could sum up Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns in three words, what would they be?

A good sequel.

Andie, she really develops over the course of the story into someone you can admire.

Have you listened to any of Laurel Lefkow’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No.

I think this one was "phoned in"

Would you try another book written by Lauren Weisberger or narrated by Laurel Lefkow?

This book was not a patch on the first book. Gone were the intricate characterisations and the fear and loathing that the " devil" caused. There were no detailed plots, no plot turns and nothing that made you feel that you were there. I got the impression that the author was given a large advance due to the success of the first book, but their heart was really not in it. Like many second books/films in a series this was a shadow of the first one.

What could Lauren Weisberger have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Give depth of chacterisation. Add more to the "one line" plot and introduce a few twists. Make Miranda a devil again.

What didn’t you like about Laurel Lefkow’s performance?

The narration was quite flat but I think this was more the book tan the narrator.

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

Disappointment. I greatly enjoyed the first book and film. This was nothing like the first book, even the author must have been bored.

Any additional comments?

Very sad, the first book had so much promise.

Delicious guilty pleasure!

I re-read this often. It's a bit of girly fun - with all drama of the first book. In fact I like this book to the original.
Lots of description about glamorous lifestyles, magazines and clothes. The characters are likeable - or horrible (you know who) and the descriptions of their encounters is amusing.
It's well narrated brining the book to life.
If ever I need a distraction this book does the job nicely.

A mixed bag

This shouldn't be called 'Revenge wears Prada'. It should be called something like: 'A decade on. What's Andy doing now?'. Just as the first book captured that first job feeling when you're in your early 20s in a big city. This one seeks to capture that third or fourth job, mid-30s, everyone you know is having kids moment. And, it is successful at that to an extent. The problem is the first half of the book is dreary stuff. It takes ages for any meaningful conflict to happen. The second half is pretty great. I don't actually blame the author. This could all have been fixed with more rigorous editing, in my opinion. Worth a read. But, just know what you're getting.

Loved it!

I love the film and always wanted to read the sequel book. The narrator did a brilliant job of reading this book makes the characters really come to life! I was so involved I started thinking in her voice!

If you're a fan of the film or the previous book I certainly recommend you read this! I got way to emotionally attached as if Andy & Emily were my friends to. Loved it! Really hoping they make a film out of this.

Good story continuing from the previous novel

Revenge often gets bad reviews. I found it to be a natural successor to Devil. More Miranda would have been great.

The ending scene should've been an hour earlier..

(May be slightly a bit of a spoiler...)but wanted to give this feedback without spoiling the book too much

......With more intermingling with her previous situation that ended too abruptly all round.....

There should've been more apologies and amends made by him for what he did!!!

Reviewed Revenge

It's hard to review without giving away the story. Laurel Lefkow's performance was just as good second time around and the storyline moves along from the original novel ... but .... it felt unresolved in some respects. I would have liked to know whether Andy benefited from what happened; I would have loved to know how the "Devil" herself reacted to Andy's decision. I feel we, the readers, miss an important part of the story. Maybe too much introspection from Andy .... it goes on too long, however, all in all, I enjoyed the sequel and will listen t it again.
