A delightfully dishy novel about the all-time most impossible boss in the history of impossible bosses.

Andrea Sachs, a small-town girl fresh out of college, lands the job “a million girls would die for.” Hired as the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the high-profile, fabulously successful editor of Runway magazine, Andrea finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn, a world populated by impossibly thin, heart-wrenchingly stylish women and beautiful men clad in fine-ribbed turtlenecks and tight leather pants that show off their lifelong dedication to the gym. With breathtaking ease, Miranda can turn each and every one of these hip sophisticates into a scared, whimpering child.

The Devil Wears Prada gives a rich and hilarious new meaning to complaints about “The Boss from Hell.” Narrated in Andrea’s smart, refreshingly disarming voice, it traces a deep, dark, devilish view of life at the top only hinted at in gossip columns and over Cosmopolitans at the trendiest cocktail parties. From sending the latest, not-yet-in-stores Harry Potter to Miranda’s children in Paris by private jet, to locating an unnamed antique store where Miranda had at some point admired a vintage dresser, to serving lattes to Miranda at precisely the piping hot temperature she prefers, Andrea is sorely tested each and every day—and often late into the night with orders barked over the phone. She puts up with it all by keeping her eyes on the prize: a recommendation from Miranda that will get Andrea a top job at any magazine of her choosing. As things escalate from the merely unacceptable to the downright outrageous, however, Andrea begins to realize that the job a million girls would die for may just kill her. And even if she survives, she has to decide whether or not the job is worth the price of her soul.

    " Brought back memories of a similar experience in the fashion industry....you can't make this stuff up. "

    " Interesting fly-on-the-wall insight into That Life. The protagonist was doing what most young adults do either on their way to their first serious job, or at their first serious job---killing themselves to please their boss, barely seeing family and friends, in order to get to where they want to be. Andy could be any law intern or first year associate, journalism major, fashion student, entry level Wall Street wannabe. It's kind of how things work, so I found myself annoyed that her family and friend (is that really a friend, btw?) didn't seem to be able o suck it up and support her for one measly year. That said, I completely identified when she reached her "F this" point, which saves her soul from the devil (never made the Faustian connection before until I read some reviews here---forehead slap!). I thought it was a good book about the price you are willing to pay and the price no one should pay. And the fashion is fun. It just is. "

    " Yes, I am embarrassed I read this, but was surprised by how likable/relatable I found the character. "
