This kind of thing is delicious fun to read about, though not as well written as its obvious antecedent, The Nanny Diaries. And therein lies the essential problem of the book. Andrea's goal in life is to work for The New Yorker--she's only sticking it out with Miranda for a job recommendation. But author Weisberger is such an inept, ungrammatical writer, you're positively rooting for her fictional alter ego not to get anywhere near The New Yorker. Still, Weisberger has certainly one-upped Me Times Three author Alex Witchel, whose magazine-world novel never gave us the inside dope that was the book's whole raison d' etre. For the most part, The Devil Wears Prada focuses on the outrageous Miranda Priestly, and she's an irresistible spectacle. --Claire Dederer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I thought this book was a great, entertaining, fun read.
I think we get it by the first page Andy has a horrible boss, did you need to write a book saying pretty much the say thing through out the whole freaking book.
I liked the premise of the book, however, found it to be very poorly written with weak character development.

This is the type of story that is original and can't be compared to others. I enjoyed Ms. Weisberger's witty writing style and was captivated by her characters and their antics.Published 14 days ago by Susan Reads Romance

This is one of those exceptions where the movie is actually more entertaining than the book. That said, this was a fun and worthwhile read, if only to "live" in New York... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Beth Barnhart
