Books by Lauren Weisberger View All. Lauren Weisberger. Lauren Weisberger, Lauren She had a great opportunity to get into the publishing business, fashion business, or whatever else. She just had to hold out for a year. Fine, she's getting four or five hours of sleep a night. I really don't care. Fine, her boss is ridiculous. But Andrea defiantly sighs at her to show her how she feels, which really, just makes her a big baby.
I didn't like a lot of the people I worked for, but if you're a hardworker, you're not going to huff and puff to prove your point that all of this is beneath you. You're going to suck it up and do it. Andrea acts like the super expensive, fashionable clothes that everybody wears are ridiculous, and yes, she sells what she has at the end, but she also puts down Franco Sarto shoes and Ann Taylor or was it Express? She doesn't treat her best friend well the entire time, which okay, sometimes these things get left behind when you're busy, but come on, she was an alcoholic.
Pull it together, Andy, and be a friend. And when she tells off Miranda at the end, God, I really think the author was going for that whole, Yeah, sock it to her, Andy! I wanted to tell Andy to grow up. Wouldn't a decent person and adult have said, "Look, Miranda, my friend has been in an accident.
The Devil Wears Prada
I'm sorry if you want me to stay, but I have to go. Yes, I understand that in the back of her head Andy was probably upset about her friend, but that really didn't come out at all. There's a lot more to complain about, but really, do I have to say anything else? View all 7 comments.
Nov 13, Lyn rated it liked it. Fair question.
The book seemed interesting, fresh and vibrant. And it was. I liked her erudite use of language, she can turn a phrase with the best of them. Most notably it is about her off-the-charts difficult boss, Miranda Priestly.
Why do we put up with arrogance and pitilessness? Weisberger notes how teenage girls and grown women fall over themselves for Miranda, Runway and fashion in general. How many boys and men and men who act like boys will damn near grovel for sports stars?
For all the ridiculous sums paid for a Louis Vuitton product, how many testosterone and beer soaked males drop big bucks for tickets and sports apparel? Weisberger also makes me think about and question our work ethic. Certainly work and a career is vitally important, but so are bonds of affection and through Andy we can get a glimpse at priority and what is important. Good book.

The movie was no great shakes, really, although the cast did a solid job with what they'd been given. Still, I sought out the book because I felt that, as with most film adaptations, a lot of depth had probably been jettisoned, and rightly so, in the translation to the screen. After all, a novel can tackle a lot more than two hours of screen time can.
Imagine my surprise to find that the movie had Not bad, I suppose—especially interesting when compared to the film adaptation, which I'd seen first. Imagine my surprise to find that the movie had more depth than the novel did.
One of the most charming and fully-realized characters relatively speaking, here in the movie was nothing more than a throwaway gay joke in the book. And whereas there's growth and change among most of the major players in the movie, the novel pays only lip service to "your characters must change by the end of the book," and then only to the protagonist, whose "change" is telegraphed from page 1.
The boss, the "devil" of the title, remains exactly the same from beginning to end—possibly intentionally, but I thought the Hollywood treatment of her, though formulaic, was more satisfying. These things would have cheesed me off more if I hadn't discovered that the whole thing was written by a year-old, because lord knows I never could have written something as impressive as this at that age, so I'm willing to cut a great deal of slack.
And the truth is, it is an enjoyable read on a page-to-page basis, even if the whole book isn't altogether satisfying. Empty calories. View all 3 comments. Oct 14, Erica rated it did not like it Recommends it for: View all 5 comments.
Jul 25, Belinda rated it did not like it Recommends it for: NO ONE. I could write for three days about how much I hated this book. I still can't believe I finished it, and the only explanation I have is that it was kind of like not being able to look away from a trainwreck. Actually, "trainwreck" is a compliment to this thing. It assumes that it was, at some point, on track. Not so.
Sep 05, Casey rated it did not like it Shelves: This book was terrible, and I'm someone who enjoys chick lit. The Devil Wears Prada is a roman-a-clef by Lauren Weisberger, a mediocre writer who takes herself too seriously.
The plot is just a series of bad decisions made by the novel's unlikeable protagonist Andy Sachs, who thinks the best way to become a writer for the New Yorker is by becoming an assistant at a Vogue style magazine for a year. Andy spends most of the novel whining about her mundane entry-level job and stealing designer cloth This book was terrible, and I'm someone who enjoys chick lit. Andy spends most of the novel whining about her mundane entry-level job and stealing designer clothes from the sample room.
As the story unfolds, it becomes apparent that the author has a worrying lack of knowledge about fashion, publishing, and human behavior in general. Sure, it's a quick read, but there are better things you could do with your time.
The Devil Wears Prada
Like staring at the wall, or counting the dots on the ceiling. View 1 comment. I saw the movie before I read the book. Several times, in fact. The Devil Wears Prada is one of those movies that they play on TV quite regularly, and is one of those movies that I almost always watch when it is.
So when I saw the book in th 2.
Get it, now. Also, make a reservation at that one place I went to last month. And get my lunch. Just saying. There was also the case of Nigel. Thank God that they gave that role to Stanley Tucci, because he turned it into something fantastic. I think you get the idea — annoying, shoot him, please.
While I read the book quite quickly, I still found it too long. That gets old very quickly. Nevertheless, I really liked the storyline in general, and it had some funny bits. If you can handle that, then I see no reason why you should not enjoy this book. Dec 26, Alaina rated it did not like it Shelves: Reading crime for the month of January. I saw the movie first. I loved the movie.
This is the first time I have read this book. I didn't like the book. Before I begin I should say some nice words. It was like re-watching the movie again but in my head. I'd rather watch the movie - it was less painful. The Devil Wears Prada was not a perfect book. It really wasn't. It was beyond terrible. It had so many flaws that I do Reading crime for the month of January. It had so many flaws that I don't really want to talk about them.
Step one: If you are of drinking age, open the god damn bottle and pour yourself an "Alaina Pour. Step two: Take a huge sip when any character annoys you. I just couldn't like her.
Not even wine could make me like her. This whole not liking her made me so sad because I liked her character a hell of a lot more in the movie but that's probably due to the amazing Anne Hathaway.
Step three: Skim through the boring parts. HA - just kidding! Don't do that. Suffer instead. Enjoy Andy whining throughout the entire book. The entire time I was reading this book, I was whining about her whining and how I would rather participate in a star wars movie marathon. I don't like any of the Star Wars movies. I didn't see the one that came out in December with my family and I'm pretty sure I slept during the movie before that.
I have no regrets - best nap of my life! Sorry to all the Star Wars lovers. I tried to get into them but yeah.. I can't. More for you? Step four: If you see this book.. Apr 27, Rebecca McNutt rated it really liked it Shelves: The Devil Wears Prada I have yet to see the film adaptation , is a quite bizarre yet creative and comedic book that anyone who has ever worked a lousy job will be able to relate to.
Aug 12, Megan rated it it was amazing.
Jun 06, Briar's Reviews rated it it was amazing Shelves: I first read this book in my first year of high school for a book report we could choose ANY book we want, and I was obsessed with the film version of this novel at the time. Since it's been This book was super popular and a sequel has come out which is currently sitting on my to-read shelves waiting for me to dig into it in recent years.
For those who don't know about the first book in this series, I first read this book in my first year of high school for a book report we could choose ANY book we want, and I was obsessed with the film version of this novel at the time. For those who don't know about the first book in this series, we are following Andrea or Andy who gets a job at a famous, fashion magazine similar to Vogue which is run by the insane workaholic Miranda Priestly.
Andrea believes this is the step she needs to get into her journalism career! A job at a high end fashion magazine! But, as we all know, nothing is ever that simple. The movie is not the same as the book, but I like the think the quality of both are insanely good! Despite being different in plot, tone and character personalities, both works were fantastic! If you haven't read the book, I highly suggest it.

It's unique and dramatic! Andrea's journey involves her changing and sometimes growing along the way, as she encounters all of the antics of being in the fashion world: This book is in it's own niche market - it became really popular, but it's not for everyone.
The humor is a type of special, especially since you are following Andrea's life fall apart. For me, it's a five star book! It's interesting to watch the plot spiral out of control as your begging the author to give Andrea some type of happiness in the end. But honestly? It's kind of how life is - not perfect.
Eventually Anne's character loses her fashion victim status and transforms into one of her dreaded Clackers.
She reaches a point where she understands Meryl's character -- even sympathizes but makes a break when enough's enough.
Andrea, instead, distances herself from the fashionistas, makes futile spiteful jabs at Miranda and Co. She doesn't become the trendy girl not until she's far from the scene but does lose her identity by placing the needs of a neurotic insomniac before herself, her friends, and her family. The book delves into her relationships on a completely differnt level actually the movie doesn't even touch them.
Let's do a short list of comparisions, shall we? The book Andrea has a steady boyfriend Ales, and lives with her best friend from childhood, Lily Takes the job because it's the only magazine in New York that offered an interview Puts her personal life on hold to be the beck-and-call girl for a Bitch Meets a hot writer who is totally jonesing for her and offers her several opportunities to, ahem improve her social standing She kinda ignores her failing love life and her best friend's alcohol addiction until it's too late to reverse either Goes to Paris with Miranda because the Sr.
Assistant gets Mono When is Paris she gets the call that her best friend's drinking caused a terrible accident and she must come home Finally has her fill and tells Miranda off, then gets fired Kinda blah ending in which she gets freelance work and gets to waltz back into the Runway office for a potential writing assignment The movie Andrea lives with her boyfriend, and has a small group of friends, one of which happens to be a black girl we could assume is Lily Takes the job because it was available Puts her personal life on hold to be the beck-and-call girl for a Bitch Meets a hot writer who keeps popping up in her life when she desperately needs help and a little pick me up, flirt-wise Her boyfriend eventually gets fed up and sorta calls for a 'break' Goes to Paris with Miranda because the Sr.
Assistant gets hit by a car and is then fired by Andrea because her mind is too adled when sick at an event to immediately recall a guest's name Discovers a plot to overthrow Miranda after she recently viewed a vunerable side and does her best to warn her, only to learn Miranda knew all along and didn't need her help.
This is when she decides she's had enough and litterally walks off the job Happy ending ensues with her getting a crap job and, unknowingly is seen by Miranda, who approves of her own fashion sense If I had read the book then saw the movie, I think I would have been pissed off at the screenwriters.While I read the book quite quickly, I still found it too long. Marian Keyes. Kevin Kwan.
Bridget Jones's Baby. Tania Crasnianski. The absolute worst part? There is a trope in modern culture that women in leadership positions have to fight double standards for acting the same way as their male counterparts, and this is never touched upon in the novel.
