The sequel you’ve been waiting for: the follow-up to the sensational #1 bestseller The Devil Wears Prada.

Almost a decade has passed since Andy Sachs quit the job “a million girls would die for” working for Miranda Priestly at Runway magazine—a dream that turned out to be a nightmare. Andy and Emily, her former nemesis and co-assistant, have since joined forces to start a high-end bridal magazine. The Plunge has quickly become required reading for the young and stylish. Now they get to call all the shots: Andy writes and travels to her heart’s content; Emily plans parties and secures advertising like a seasoned pro. Even better, Andy has met the love of her life. Max Harrison, scion of a storied media family, is confident, successful, and drop-dead gorgeous. Their wedding will be splashed across all the society pages as their friends and family gather to toast the glowing couple. Andy Sachs is on top of the world. But karma’s a bitch. The morning of her wedding, Andy can’t shake the past. And when she discovers a secret letter with crushing implications, her wedding-day jitters turn to cold dread. Andy realizes that nothing—not her husband, nor her beloved career—is as it seems. She never suspected that her efforts to build a bright new life would lead her back to the darkness she barely escaped ten years ago—and directly into the path of the devil herself...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Revenge destroys the franchise! I was so excited to see a companion novel to my all-time favorite chick novel/movie. I was not only disappointed but bored by this predictable, brand/name dropping, puff piece. The book opens with a fantastic wedding between Andy and Max that jumped between the events its self and where Andy is in her life. Shockingly so (sarcastic) Andy’s biggest obstacle in her relationship is finding a letter from her mother in law to her son, stating that she doesn’t like Andy. Who in all honesty even likes there mother in law let alone would complain and act like a twat just because she doesn’t like you? Oh no my perfect Prada world is being shattered because someone who is perfectly nice to me in person doesn’t think I’m the best choice for their son….waaaa! I need to go run to my million dollar apartment and laminate over my life choices! The story moves on predictable to Andy being pregnant, Oh no! what could possibly be wrong with a young woman who pukes every morning! Oh the suspense! At this point in the story Andy and Emily who co-own a wedding magazine receive an offer from Elisa Clark, a major publishing house and at its helm is the devil herself, Maranda Priestly. All hope for revenge is shortly dashed as Maranda is more than kind in her psychopathic way. In no way is there any form or retribution or revenge for past grievances in any form. The book ends miserably in Andy being hurt by Emily and Max, when they legally decide to sell the magazine from under her. She then in one sweep divorces her husband and cuts Emily from her life, I’m quite sure she takes all her designer clothing, purses, shoe’s and let’s not forget millions from the sale and starts anew with her baby girl and full staff of nannies. All in all, this book was a complete waste of time. Such a sad pathetic end to a once reputable and enjoyable tale.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Boring Being the sequel of such a good first novel I would have expected so much more. I found it difficult to read, the story doesn't take off and nothing jumps off the pages. Quite disappointed in reading the whole thing to discover that it wasn't as exciting as I'd expected.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from REVISITING ANDY, ET AL More than 10 years after Andy threw her cell phone into the fountain in Paris and told Miranda Priestly to **** off, she is back and publishing her own magazine. Even more surprising is that her arch-nemesis Emily has become her best friend and business partner. Things are going swimmingly for Andy … after a few hiccups she is married … although unexpected, she has a baby on the way and the magazine is doing well. Until – dumm-da-dumm – Miranda Priestly steps back into the picture. This could have been such a good sequel to The Devil Wears Prada. All the elements were available to make this a wonderful story but Ms. Weisberger changed Andy’s “voice” so much that I could feel no happiness, compassion or outrage for her as she was going through her life in this book. Andy just seemed beaten down by the most mundane everyday things and whined throughout the whole book. I kept turning the pages and reading on in hopes of finding the strong independent young woman from the first book, but unfortunately never did. I’m sure the planned movie version will be great (if they reassemble the original cast) but, for me, the book fell short.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please don't waste your time or money This book was seriously disappointing. I loved the first one and eagerly awaited the sequel. In the end, what I read was terribly written, the characters were unsympathetic and their behaviours never made any sense. And worst of all, I was bored!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seriously? Is Andy not completely unaware that the entire ending of this book was her own fault? I don't care if she's happy in the end, her impulsiveness and stubborn nature don't paint an independent heroine in my mind. How annoying. An entertaining read regardless, but what a disappointment to finish. I never thought a chick-lit novel would leave me angry.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not great I liked this book but it wasn't amazing. For me, it's one of those novels that when you get to the end you think: Oh, okay, is that all? Although the author did make a huge effort to give a memorable ending that you may not have predicted, in the end there were so many plot points that basically fizzled into nothing or had a lacklustre conclusion. I would have thought that the plot could have been much more interesting. The book is full of messy, complicated relationships and friendships and I felt like Andy didn't make sensible decisions to communicate with people around her and improve her happiness- she allowed hard times to just come and hit her and she never even tried to do anything about it other than run away from her issues and the people involved. The book was well-written and fun to read, I love the author's writing style, but the story and the plot were definitely disappointing. Miranda Priestly and Emily are both back in Andy's life, but don't expect anything too juicy or exciting. They're just....there. I wouldn't necessarily recommend this to a friend, but it's not a bad read if you're curious what's happened to Andy since the first novel. It starts really great and really got my interest about what was going to happen, but nothing really came of the most interesting parts of the beginning. Andy floats through the book without doing or saying much or finding much happiness in these chapters.

Extra Content

Read from the Book

chapter 1as long as she livedThe rain fell in sideways sheets, cold and relentless, the winds whipping it in every direction, making an umbrella, slicker, and rain boots nearly useless. Not that Andy had any of those things. Her two-hundred-dollar Burberry umbrella had refused to open and finally snapped when she tried to force it; the cropped rabbit jacket with the oversize collar and no hood cinched fabulously around her waist but did nothing to stop the bone-chilling cold; and the brand-new stacked suede Prada pumps cheered her with their poppy fuchsia color but left the better part of her foot exposed. Even her skinny leggings left her legs feeling naked, the wind making the leather feel as protective as a pair of a silk stockings. Already the fifteen inches that had blanketed New York were beginning to melt into a slushy gray mess, and Andy wished for the thousandth time that she lived anywhere but here.As if to punctuate her thought, a taxi barreled through a yellow light and blared its horn at Andy, who had committed the grievous crime of trying to cross the street. She restrained herself from offering him the finger-everyone was armed these days - and instead gritted her teeth and hurled mental curses his way. Considering the size of her heels, she made decent progress for the next two or three blocks. Fifty-Second, Fifty-Third, Fifty-Fourth . . . it wasn't too far now, and at least she'd have a moment or two to warm up before beginning the race back to the office. She was consoling herself with the promise of a hot coffee and maybe, just maybe, a chocolate chip cookie, when suddenly, somewhere, she heard that ring.Where was it coming from? Andy glanced around, but her fellow pedestrians didn't seem to notice the sound, which was growing louder every second. Br-rrring! Br-rrring! That ringtone.She would recognize it anywhere for as long as she lived, although Andy was surprised they were still making phones with it. She simply hadn't heard it in so long and yet . . . it all came rushing back. She knew before she pulled her phone from her bag what she would find, but she was still shocked to see those two words on her caller ID screen: MIRANDA PRIESTLY.She would not answer. Could not. Andy took a deep breath, hit "ignore," and tossed the phone back into her bag. It started ringing again almost immediately. Andy could feel her heart begin to beat faster, and it got more and more difficult to fill her lungs. Inhale, exhale, she instructed herself, tucking her chin to protect her face from what was now pounding sleet, and just keep walking. She was less than two blocks from the restaurant-she could see it lit up ahead like a warm, shimmering promise-when a particularly nasty gust propelled her forward, causing her to lose her balance and step directly into one of the worst parts of a Manhattan winter: the black, slushy puddle of dirt and water and salt and trash and god knows what else so filthy and freezing and shockingly deep that one could do nothing but surrender to it.Which is exactly what Andy did, right there in the pool of hell that had accumulated between the street and the curb. She stood, flamingo-like, perched gracefully on one submerged foot, holding the other one rather impressively above the watery mess for a good thirty or forty seconds, weighing her options. Around her, people gave her and the slushy little lake wide berth, only those with knee-high rubber boots daring to tromp directly through the middle. But no one offered her a hand and, realizing that the puddle had a large enough perimeter that she couldn't jump to escape in any one direction, she steeled herself for another shock of cold and placed her left foot beside her right. The icy water rushed up her legs and came to a stop on her lower calf, subsuming both fuchsia shoes and a good five inches of leather pant, and it was all Andy could do not to cry.Her shoes and leggings were ruined; her feet felt like she might lose them to frostbite; she had no option for extricating herself from the mess except continuing to slog through it; and all Andy could think was, That's exactly what you get for screening Miranda Priestly.There wasn't time to dwell on her misery, though, because as soon as she made it to the curb and stopped to evaluate the damage, her phone rang again. It had been ballsy-hell, downright reckless-to ignore the first call. She simply couldn't do it again. Dripping, shivering, and near tears, Andy tapped the screen and said hello."Ahn-dre-ah? Is that you? You've already been gone for an eternity. I'll ask you only one time. Where. Is. My. Lunch? I simply won't be kept waiting like this."Of course it's me, Andy thought. You dialed my number. Who else would be answering?"I'm so sorry, Miranda. It's really horrid out right now, and I'm trying my best to-""I'll expect you back here immediately. That's all." And before Andy could say another word, the line was disconnected.
