Publisher's Summary

A sharp, witty, and hugely entertaining debut novel, The Devil Wears Prada is The Nanny Diaries set in the world of high fashion. Welcome to the dollhouse, baby! When Andrea first sets foot in the plush Manhattan offices of Runway she knows nothing. She's never heard of the world's most fashionable magazine, or its feared and fawned-over editor, Miranda Priestly. But she's going to be Miranda's assistant, a job millions of girls would die for. A year later, she knows altogether too much: That it's a sacking offence to wear anything lower than a three-inch heel to work. But that there's always a fresh pair of Manolos for you in the accessories cupboard. That Miranda believes Hermes scarves are disposable, and you must keep a life-time supply on hand at all times. That eight stone is fat. That you can charge cars, manicures, anything at all to the Runway account, but you must never, ever, leave your desk, or let Miranda's coffee get cold. And that at 3 a.m. on a Sunday, when your boyfriend's dumping you because you're always at work, and your best friend's just been arrested, if Miranda phones, you jump. Most of all, Andrea knows that Miranda is a monster who makes Cruella de Ville look like a fluffy bunny. But also that this is her big break, and it's going to be worth it in the end. Isn't it?

Enjoyable Easy Listening

Having seen the movie, but not actually have read the book, I thought this would be a nice easy listen. I was right. Never boring and keeps you interested. You feel for the main character but you really can't believe that people like this exist.

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.

Love this book

I actually own this as a paperback but just felt like listening to something familiar. Great story. Very different plot than the film. But, it's just nice to be in this universe again.

Endlessly entertaining

I loved the book, which was read perfectly by Laura Lefkow. The characters were varied and 3 dimensional and I really enjoyed hearing the plot develop. The film was good,but this was so much better. Brilliant.
