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)

    "Entertaining"

    If you are looking for a book to entertain you this will meet your expectations. Its an easy read and its a fun girlie book.
    The reader did a good job at narrating but some of the character voices sounded very stupid. At one point I was wondering if the protagonist was talking to her father or boyfriend; it was very confusing. Other wise I still give it a 4 because I liked it.

    "Wickedly Entertaining"

    Entertaining, snarky book. Supposedly based on the author's own experiences, this book gives a look at the boss from hell, and the people she plows over.

    "And the point was?"

    I think it would be a lot more entertaining to a much younger person. Any adult over 40 will be bored to tears! This story was entertaining on occasion but mostly outrages, utterly absurd, and pointless.

    "TOO LONG"

    I really enjoyed most aspects of this book, however I would strongly suggest that you get the abridged version!!!! WAY too detailed.
    But the story is fun and the characters are interesting. You will find yourself wanting to know what happens next. Just get abridged!!!!!!!!!

    "If you've ever had a boss you couldn't stand..."

    I loved this book; it made me think back on all the 'crappy job' stories I and my friends have ever told! The narrator was fabulous and the story was so engaging I ended up taking it in from my car several times to listen longer.

    "Fun listen, but I hated the ending!"

    So really, it is worth letting someone treat you like shit for a year and completely alienating all your friends and family because you can take your free clothes and sell them and then write up stories and make money off of them. She is clearly enlightened.

    "he buzzed me through like I was someone who mattered" .... what the @#$%^!.

    Terrible ending... But fun listen up to the last hour or so, then I got annoyed.

    "Delightful"

    This book was so delightful that I found myself wishing for more traffic in my daily commute just so I could listen longer. Andrea, the main character, lands a job working for the editor of a popular fashion magazine. A job that, she is constantly reminded, "a million girls would die for." But, of course, Andrea isn't one of them because she doesn't care about fashion, and even those million girls would think twice if they knew what a loon Andrea's boss was. It's light and funny, and a great escape from your own job's frustrations because at least your own boss cannot possibly be this insane! Particularly perfect listening for your commute to and from work each day.

    "Outstanding narration"

    Most likely I would have enjoyed this book far less if I had read it rather than listened to it. The narrator helped soften the underlying whiny perspective of the author. All of her voices were quite engaging and excellent, especially Miranda's.
    I like to listen to a lot of spy thrillers and this was a welcome change of pace. A great listen while driving or ironing.
