The Devil Wears Prada - Lauren Weisberger ... author Lauren Weisberger did a stint as assistant to Anna Wintour, the all-powerful editor of Vogue magazine. Now she's written a book, and this is its theme: narrator Andrea Sachs goes to work for Miranda Priestly, the all-powerful editor of Runway magazine. It turns out Miranda is quite the bossyboots. That's pretty much the extent of the novel, but it's plenty. Miranda's behaviour 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 the real-life antics of the woman who's been called Anna Nuclear Wintour. For instance, when Miranda goes to Paris for the collections, Andrea receives a call back at the New York office (where, incidentally, she's not allowed to leave her desk to eat or go to the bathroom, lest her boss should call). Miranda bellows over the line: I am standing in the pouring rain on the rue de Rivoli and my driver has vanished. Vanished! Find him immediately!

She's the new junior assistant to Miranda Priestly, editor-in-chief of the world-famous fashion magazine, "Runway". The only problem is that Miranda is the most evil boss on earth, who only seems to adore tormenting her assistants and making everyone's lives she comes into contact with a living hell.

After reading so many books recently all with similar storylines, I went in search for something very different. Something that was particularly easy to read and light on the mind. Lauren Weisberger's The Devil Wears Prada was what I found to try and fulfil my simple requests. After being turned into a hugely successful film and the fact that it spent over six months on the New York Times Bestseller's list, was this international hit the very thing I needed? This 'chick lit' novel follows the life of Andrea Sachs, as a newly hired assistant to Miranda Priestly, the most famous fashion magazine editor on the planet. As soon as she steps into the office for the ... Read the complete review

Lauren Weisberger gives a twist to the whiny story of a small town girl working under a high-powered fashion editor-in-chief. Andrea Sachs is fresh out of college and finds herself the junior assistant to THE Miranda Priestley, fashion magazine, Runway, editor-in-chief. She had hoped that this job would land her the dream job at the New Yorker. In a office that revolves around top labels like Prada, Armani, Versace, etc, Andrea stands out like a sore thumb in her G2000. But she is determined to fit in and last out a year of Miranda Priestley's tedious and ridiculously impossible demands. From delivering the not-in-stores-yet Harry Potter to ...

Another original review from ciao! :- I have previously done a review on the devil wears Prada, the film and thought as I also had the book it was time to have reviews of both. PLOT As you start to turn the pages of this book, we are met with a very stressed and unhappy woman who seems like she will snap any minute and have a nervous breakdown. She's trying to remember how to try a stick while under pressure as her boss wants her across town and back again in a ridiculous amount of time, while doing this her boss frequently calls her asking where she is and giving her yet more orders. Her expensive clothing ruined, she only has one thought left. How much ... Read the complete review

All that I ask for in light fiction is entertainment and escapism with perhaps a little empathy thrown in to give flavour to the story. It doesn't bother me too much if scenarios are a little unlikely, after all fiction is escapism and one shouldn't expect any great literary masterpiece. After the hype of the film - which I haven't seen and which I understand has a different ending to the book - The Devil Wears Prada perfectly met my criteria. oooo Written by Lauren Weisberger in 2003, The Devil Wears Prada is written in the first person by Andrea Sachs who lands the job "a million girls would kill for" as personal assistant to Miranda ...
