Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh! Bought this at the airport while stuck on a layover, thought it would be entertaining, the first half was. I was pleasantly surprised but it started to lose steam half way though. Movie was definitely better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not terrific. One of the instances in which the movie is much better then the book. The pace of the book and its descriptiveness suit a visual medium quite well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Annoying I read this years ago when it was originally being raved about. While the first half of the book leads to all sorts of 'omg I can believe she said/did/acted like that' moments, the second half of the book just becomes hard to read. It becomes whiny and I had myself questioning who would ever let a situation get so ugly and so far. It left a lot to be desired in terms of a satisfying read.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Bother I honestly preferred the movie. The book was dull, whiny, and annoyingly excessive in it's descriptions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Go see the movie I found the book to be dull, the main character whiny, and reading slow going. I highly recommend the movie - blows the book of out the water, hands down.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Prefer the movie Here's the thing - the writing is needlessly heavy and it really detracts from the book. There is a lot more backstory in the book and that part works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Devil Wears Prada centres around Andrea Sachs, who takes the job as Miranda Priestly's assistant as a step to get to her dream job. What she doesn't realize is how demanding the job is as she struggles to keep up with her social life. To be honest, this book it not really for me. The majority of it is Andrea whining about how hard her job is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fashion Industry At It's Best If you are interested in the fashion industry and it's insight this book is certainly for you. I came into this book with a clear because I had seen the movie I did not want to compare it and of course the book is better. I do have to say that Meryl Streep did an amazing job with the character of Miranda Priestly. All in all this is a great read and the best that Lauren Weisberger has written so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great read!!!!! This was a great book and I could easily call it my favourite. It was very entertaining all the way through and easily relate able. I LOVED it!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This book was really good. I am not one to know much about designer clothes or fashion, but it seems like a lot of money goes into it and I don't know if I would put myself in the main characters position just for some shoes. The movie was better than the book, but they should have kept the books ending. Overall an okay read

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Devil Wears No Name After falling absolutely head over heals in lust with the movie The Devil Wears Prada, I decided to give the novel a try. My friend was always on my case to read it, saying it was “the best novel ever” and I honestly never had the chance to read it besides I thought it would be superficial, shallow and stupid… and I was right. Although the movie focuses on the actual characters, the novel focuses on clothes. The amount of times I had to read what each character wore for each day was disgusting. I would say 1/3rd of the novel was used to describe clothes. If I wanted to know what clothes looked like I would stand in front of a Holt Renfrew window. The story is about a young fresh out of university woman, Andrea Sachs, who wants job in publishing, where she can do what she does best, write. It’s in first person narrative and I honestly believe that some words written in the novel were put in after using a thesaurus. Andrea lands a job at a fashion magazine, Runway, where she is constantly told “a million people would die for your job” She ends up working as an assistant to one of the cruellest workaholics in the industry, Miranda Priestly, the editor-in-chief of Runway. As the story progresses we see Andrea caught in a situation where her personal life merges with her work life until work becomes her life. Aside from the two main characters we get the supporting characters, Alex, the understanding boyfriend, Lily, Andrea’s best friend, Christian, Andrea’s “work crush” and Emily, Andrea’s co-worker along with other meaningless and pitiful characters not worth mentioning. There was no major makeover, nor was there really any character development. The characters all pretty much remained the same in the end just a little more angry and self centered. The plot line is atrocious, the main character is annoying, and the only thing that saves this novel is Miranda Priestly who is wonderfully callous and believable as the “b*tch-boss” from England. Perhaps if I read the novel before I watched the movie I would not be so biased and I would appreciate the novel more, however I cannot appreciate something that is so overwhelmingly shallow as this novel was. But that’s my opinion anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laugh out loud hilarious! I thought this book was absolutely hilarious. Many times I laughed out loud and some of the amazing situations the main character found herself in. I loved how I was able to really hate Miranda yet at the same time understand her. I also loved the ongoing comentary about the fashion industry and how it objectifies women. All in all, if your looking for a light, funny book to pass your time away this is the book for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great if you skip over the fashion bits I enjoyed the book and read it pretty much to the end in one sitting because I was curious to see what would happen to Andy after 1 year on the job. I eventually took to skipping the Prada/Gucci/Jimmy Choo ravings in favour of reading the more interesting parts of the story. All in all I was drawn in to the story and bored by the whining at the same time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A guilty pleasure Overall the Devil Wears Prada is a worthwhile read for those lazy, lay in the sun summer days. The combination of humour and well-developed, interesting characters will pull you in and make you not want to put the book down until the end. Even though the book tends to drag on a little near the end, it is a great read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Read Such a great read for anyone whose had a less than perfect boss! As a personal assistant I can see where Andrea is coming from but this book relates to everyone whose come out of school and started working in the "real world". Great book!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable Funny and fast-paced. Great summer reading. A must read for all budding fashionistas!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Summer Read I read this book in a couple days...couldn't put it down! It's definitely entertaining, but I found myself getting stressed out with Andrea. I was reading it before bed and actually had a dream that I was stressed out and being chased by crazy Miranda Priestly! I'm definitely looking forward to reading Weisberger's new book, I enjoy her writing style.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I felt the title was the most original part of this book and it fell flat after the first page. Why anyone would want to endure this book is a mystery. Pick up something else if you want to be entertained.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok I wasn't that impressed. Reading about someone who doesn't ever stand up for herself was rathering uninspiring.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Fun! A great read, on life in the fast lane. Fun to visualize and put yourself into someone else's shoes. I hope that Lauren plans to write a contiuation to the story.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast Paced I really enjoyed this book. I had a hard time putting it down. I had really expected this girl to go through awful things....but it was nice. In this book you are really on her side. You become envious of her job perks, and wish you were there if ONLY for the Prada! She starts out as your regular girl next door...but turns into Manhattan fashionista. You really see the development in the girls character...and it was nice...I would definitely recommend the book...and am looking forward to her next.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from ..thats it? okay, nice title, but it really leads you on. If you want to hear someone complain for 360 pages about a lady that they are scared of and are forced to worship for personal gain (useless asskissing) , you could probably talk to some random people on the street and get a condensed version of such, the only difference is that this involves fashion, which makes it just that little bit better. The ending, well, our heroine didnt exactly win what she was going after, so if you're into the whole metaphorical prize kinda stories then this works. and yeah thats it, it wasnt so great. bye xD

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Stinker this book started off on the wrong note however it slowly started to get more appealing.....BUT WAIT just when i thought hey this book is not that bad after all it got worse...i kept on reading and reading and nothing would happen it was the most dissapointing novel ever read i didnt even bother reading the ending. Thank god i only waisted a gift card on it not my own money,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great!! Couldn't put it down!! This was an amazing book that I simply couldn't put down! I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a fun, amzing novel to read!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from somewhat above average The climax was barely recognizable and I doubt that if she didn't have such a cute way of writing, the book wouldn't be half as famous as it is now. Lauren is very talented and even with a horrendous storyline, she made it work. Otherwise this book would deserve a three.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What is woman literature? This book is so fantastic! I had never heard about Anna Wintour and didn't have any interest in fashion world so i can tell that it was really the wonderfull narrative that kept me laughing for the 410 pages. The only thing i can't understand is why it is classified as woman literature. What is that? I am sure men like to laugh and to read a good story as much as us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Devil Wears Prada Excellent read! Too funny! Actually made me laugh out loud. This is a very easy read and I would reccommend it to anybody who wants a nice light entertaining read. A definate addition to your library.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing Picked the book up after the funny title and enjoyed reading about the first 2 chapters. The climax was hugely disappointing. I enjoyed this author's quirky writing style--a nice change, too bad the climax took forever to be reached and it was awful at best. The only thing I actually enjoyed was her writing style. I did laugh out loud once or twice on the subway...but in general I was disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why did I just read that? Sometime during a two hour ferry ride I decided to do something other than hide from 'That guy who keeps undressing me with his eyes'. Thus I found myself in the gift shop with this book in one hand and my visa in the other. Another massive blunder. This storyline had a lot of promise, unfortunately it just couldn't get started. I kept wondering if somehow I had managed to miss the climax, or if I had even started climbing the hill. From cover to cover it was a struggle to continue, if you have insommnia then this is the cure you've been looking for. By the last page I couldn't help but wonder why I didn't buy that snowglobe instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great read! couldn't put it down! This is my second time reading this quirky novel. I couldn't get enough. I loved the humour and the put downs of the fashion world. Even though we all know it's not really like that (paris hilton-say no more!!) I thought it was a great novel, and i don't think that it was long enough, I could have sat for five more hours!lol

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Devil is boring I bought this book to take with me on a trip after finding it in a discount bin. The reason it was on sale quickly became evident. I found it uncompelling, trite, and plodding to read. I kept hoping the story would pick up and go somewhere. I was hugely disappointed.
Date published: 2004-09-04
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Long I had heard great things about this book; I was very disappointed. It could have been a better book had it been edited a bit better. I think the book repeated itself a lot to demonstrated the craziness of the fashion world. In the end the payoff was just not there. The end did not climax the way I had hoped it would.
