    3.5 stars In Defense of Miranda Priestly The premise of this novel as most know it is OMG, my boss is a total dragon lady!!!, but I think that is both an unfair assumption and oversimplification. Little background is given of the title character other than she grew up in a lowe...

    God have mercy, I finally finished this horrific book! Honestly, it wasn't so bad, just tedious and repetitive. I picked it because (a) the movie was coming out and (b) I recognized the title as a popular book, albeit a couple years ago. The premise to the book is that a young woman ta...

    This is one of the only books I have ever read in my entire life where the film actually improved my perception. It took me about three years to read this, and the only reason I ever finished it was because everyone else seemed to think it was so great, I thought I must be missing some...

    The movie was too good. Huuuuuuuuge gulf between the book and the film. I kept thinking: maybe the beginning was just slow? Maybe the middle needed a bit more time? Despite all my deep breaths and meditation, I could not stand this book. The main character (Andrea) is so wholly...

    I read this a few years ago, and still remember what a rollicking good ride it was. I was mesmerized by the horror. It was like watching a train wreck in slow motion. In a good way, that is. I'm sure there's a good way to watch a train wreck if we think about it long enough. In the...

    A woman came up to me while I was reading this book and said, "Oh, how is that book? I've been meaning to read it." I answered, "Um, well, it's kind of fun." She raised her eyebrows at me. "I see." I added, "I wouldn't pay full price for it. I got it on sale for, like, a dollar." She n...

    I really wasn't that into this book. There were some parts of the book that were great, but mostly it was a VERY slow read and pretty hard to get into. I think that it didn't help that I had watched the movie multiple times and LOVED it. I had high expectations for this book and it...

    Well, that was a waste of time. I LOVE the film. It's one of my favourites and I've seen it dozens of times. The book, however, was not even remotely impressive. The dialogue was just so...flat. I felt no emotion in any of the characters and none of them really felt individual to me. I...

    Oh I love this chick lit. I enjoy the movie. I can relate to the characters. Having a nightmare boss who demands everything must be ready for her, is just funny as hell. This is the ultimate chick lit. ...

    Where to start with this one! Seldom have I ever read a book that actually made my blood boil with rage, but this did it! I can, unfortunately, relate to the utter misery that Andy faces while at Runway, while my own clearly does not amount to her cataclysmic year of agony. Having s...

    *3.5 stars Overall, it was good. I'm quite suprise how much I love this book. Surely, it started with a very slow and almost to the point boring that it took me ages just to reach 100 pages mark. I actually stop reading and watched the movie instead. But l'm glad that it getting more ...

    I finished The Devil Wear Prada last night. I had some trouble getting into the book, those first descriptions of Andrea's adventures before joining the magazine were really not that interesting to me. After she enters the magazine world I became more interested in her relationship wit...

    Maybe because I saw the movie before reading the book; I can't say I enjoyed this book. Found it far too long for the story it tells, and although the subject was intriguing the writing style was nothing special for me. ...

    God have mercy, I finally finished this horrific book! Honestly, it wasn't so bad, just tedious and repetitive. I picked it because (a) the movie was coming out and (b) I recognized the title as a popular book, albeit a couple years ago. The premise to the book is that a young woman ta...

    This is one of the only books I have ever read in my entire life where the film actually improved my perception. It took me about three years to read this, and the only reason I ever finished it was because everyone else seemed to think it was so great, I thought I must be missing some...

    The movie was too good. Huuuuuuuuge gulf between the book and the film. I kept thinking: maybe the beginning was just slow? Maybe the middle needed a bit more time? Despite all my deep breaths and meditation, I could not stand this book. The main character (Andrea) is so wholly...

    I read this a few years ago, and still remember what a rollicking good ride it was. I was mesmerized by the horror. It was like watching a train wreck in slow motion. In a good way, that is. I'm sure there's a good way to watch a train wreck if we think about it long enough. In the...

    A woman came up to me while I was reading this book and said, "Oh, how is that book? I've been meaning to read it." I answered, "Um, well, it's kind of fun." She raised her eyebrows at me. "I see." I added, "I wouldn't pay full price for it. I got it on sale for, like, a dollar." She n...

    Not bad, I suppose?especially interesting when compared to the film adaptation, which I'd seen first. 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 adaptatio...

    The only reason I waste words on this piece of trash is that it holds the distinction of being THE WORST BOOK I EVER READ. The title was held previously (for a good 15 years previously) by "The Bridges of Madison County," and it took some DOING to surpass that awfulness. I could wri...

    this book blows. it's poorly written, the author uses the same words over and over, characters just do things at random and don't seem to have identifiable personalities of their own. if i was still in 5th grade and decided to write a book about working at a fashion magazine when i'm a...

    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 th...

    2.5 stars I?m going to be quite honest here: I saw the movie before I read the book. Several times, in fact. The movie came out in 2006, when I wasn?t a reader yet. The Devil Wears Prada is one of those movies that they play on TV quite regularly, and is one of those movies that...

    I really wasn't that into this book. There were some parts of the book that were great, but mostly it was a VERY slow read and pretty hard to get into. I think that it didn't help that I had watched the movie multiple times and LOVED it. I had high expectations for this book and it...

    I kept thinking *THIS WILL BE A GREAT MOVIE* but never a good book. I was really disappointed and on a side note ... when I DID watch the movie I was so disappointed because all I could think was * This would be a GREAT book. ...

    It's funny how you forget about a book. I read this when it first came out 10 years ago and thought it was a fast, fluffy read, but nothing else really stuck w/ me. Then, I saw the movie and thought "I know it's been a while, but I really don't remember all this happening" - so, when I...

    I love these people so much that nothing else but The Devil Wears Prada could make me want to give them bloodied noses. ...

    Well, that was a waste of time. I LOVE the film. It's one of my favourites and I've seen it dozens of times. The book, however, was not even remotely impressive. The dialogue was just so...flat. I felt no emotion in any of the characters and none of them really felt individual to me. I...

    Oh I love this chick lit. I enjoy the movie. I can relate to the characters. Having a nightmare boss who demands everything must be ready for her, is just funny as hell. This is the ultimate chick lit. ...

    Where to start with this one! Seldom have I ever read a book that actually made my blood boil with rage, but this did it! I can, unfortunately, relate to the utter misery that Andy faces while at Runway, while my own clearly does not amount to her cataclysmic year of agony. Having s...

    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. ...

    Reading crime #5000 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. While reading this book, I kept picturing the actors/actresses from the movi...

    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...well, years...it's about time I finally give this book a review to add it to my collection!...

    I really wasn't that into this book. There were some parts of the book that were great, but mostly it was a VERY slow read and pretty hard to get into. I think that it didn't help that I had watched the movie multiple times and LOVED it. I had high expectations for this book and it...

    I kept thinking *THIS WILL BE A GREAT MOVIE* but never a good book. I was really disappointed and on a side note ... when I DID watch the movie I was so disappointed because all I could think was * This would be a GREAT book. ...

    It's funny how you forget about a book. I read this when it first came out 10 years ago and thought it was a fast, fluffy read, but nothing else really stuck w/ me. Then, I saw the movie and thought "I know it's been a while, but I really don't remember all this happening" - so, when I...

    I love these people so much that nothing else but The Devil Wears Prada could make me want to give them bloodied noses. ...

    Well, that was a waste of time. I LOVE the film. It's one of my favourites and I've seen it dozens of times. The book, however, was not even remotely impressive. The dialogue was just so...flat. I felt no emotion in any of the characters and none of them really felt individual to me. I...

    Oh I love this chick lit. I enjoy the movie. I can relate to the characters. Having a nightmare boss who demands everything must be ready for her, is just funny as hell. This is the ultimate chick lit. ...

    Where to start with this one! Seldom have I ever read a book that actually made my blood boil with rage, but this did it! I can, unfortunately, relate to the utter misery that Andy faces while at Runway, while my own clearly does not amount to her cataclysmic year of agony. Having s...

    Llegué al libro por haber visto la película (sino no se hasta qué punto me hubiese interesado por él), y aunque esperaba que se parecieran, terminaron siendo dos historias muy diferentes. Se mantiene la idea básica de la jefa déspota, pero nada más. El argumento es bastante s...

    *3.5 stars Overall, it was good. I'm quite suprise how much I love this book. Surely, it started with a very slow and almost to the point boring that it took me ages just to reach 100 pages mark. I actually stop reading and watched the movie instead. But l'm glad that it getting more ...

    I finished The Devil Wear Prada last night. I had some trouble getting into the book, those first descriptions of Andrea's adventures before joining the magazine were really not that interesting to me. After she enters the magazine world I became more interested in her relationship wit...

    Maybe because I saw the movie before reading the book; I can't say I enjoyed this book. Found it far too long for the story it tells, and although the subject was intriguing the writing style was nothing special for me. ...

    God have mercy, I finally finished this horrific book! Honestly, it wasn't so bad, just tedious and repetitive. I picked it because (a) the movie was coming out and (b) I recognized the title as a popular book, albeit a couple years ago. The premise to the book is that a young woman ta...

    The movie was too good. Huuuuuuuuge gulf between the book and the film. I kept thinking: maybe the beginning was just slow? Maybe the middle needed a bit more time? Despite all my deep breaths and meditation, I could not stand this book. The main character (Andrea) is so wholly...

    I read this a few years ago, and still remember what a rollicking good ride it was. I was mesmerized by the horror. It was like watching a train wreck in slow motion. In a good way, that is. I'm sure there's a good way to watch a train wreck if we think about it long enough. In the...

    A woman came up to me while I was reading this book and said, "Oh, how is that book? I've been meaning to read it." I answered, "Um, well, it's kind of fun." She raised her eyebrows at me. "I see." I added, "I wouldn't pay full price for it. I got it on sale for, like, a dollar." She n...

    Not bad, I suppose?especially interesting when compared to the film adaptation, which I'd seen first. 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 adaptatio...

    The only reason I waste words on this piece of trash is that it holds the distinction of being THE WORST BOOK I EVER READ. The title was held previously (for a good 15 years previously) by "The Bridges of Madison County," and it took some DOING to surpass that awfulness. I could wri...

    this book blows. it's poorly written, the author uses the same words over and over, characters just do things at random and don't seem to have identifiable personalities of their own. if i was still in 5th grade and decided to write a book about working at a fashion magazine when i'm a...

    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 th...

    I really wasn't that into this book. There were some parts of the book that were great, but mostly it was a VERY slow read and pretty hard to get into. I think that it didn't help that I had watched the movie multiple times and LOVED it. I had high expectations for this book and it...

    Well, that was a waste of time. I LOVE the film. It's one of my favourites and I've seen it dozens of times. The book, however, was not even remotely impressive. The dialogue was just so...flat. I felt no emotion in any of the characters and none of them really felt individual to me. I...

    Oh I love this chick lit. I enjoy the movie. I can relate to the characters. Having a nightmare boss who demands everything must be ready for her, is just funny as hell. This is the ultimate chick lit. ...

    Where to start with this one! Seldom have I ever read a book that actually made my blood boil with rage, but this did it! I can, unfortunately, relate to the utter misery that Andy faces while at Runway, while my own clearly does not amount to her cataclysmic year of agony. Having s...

    *3.5 stars Overall, it was good. I'm quite suprise how much I love this book. Surely, it started with a very slow and almost to the point boring that it took me ages just to reach 100 pages mark. I actually stop reading and watched the movie instead. But l'm glad that it getting more ...

    I finished The Devil Wear Prada last night. I had some trouble getting into the book, those first descriptions of Andrea's adventures before joining the magazine were really not that interesting to me. After she enters the magazine world I became more interested in her relationship wit...

    Maybe because I saw the movie before reading the book; I can't say I enjoyed this book. Found it far too long for the story it tells, and although the subject was intriguing the writing style was nothing special for me. ...

    Desde que vi la película me enamore de la historia de Andrea, siempre me pregunte como seria trabajar para una empresa y si algún día tendría una jefa como Miranda, la verdad es que no me ha tocado tan duro como a Andy, pero si me identifico con muchas cosas de esta historia. Si...
