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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kia Birdsong | 1/22/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ivy | 1/21/2014

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Simi Varghese | 1/17/2014

    " waaaayy better than the MOVIE!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eidalis Vaquedano | 1/15/2014

    " I went into reading this book after watching the movie, which I very much enjoyed. First of all, the book was very different, which I was happy about. The book was a lot more detailed and there was more room for character development, mainly in the main character, Andrea. I really enjoyed the fact the boom was different from the movie because it left me being more surprised rather than knowing what would happen next. One of my favorite thigs about the book was not only the things I put above, but I also enjoyed the aetting of presentday New York i the fashion business. Usually, I enjoy reading a book before watching the movie, but this time I was left content wih my decision. Overall, the book was an enjoyable read and left me pleased! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ciara Leahy | 1/11/2014

    " Found this very similar to my own life in a lot of ways...(!) but really enjoyed it, v v easy to read and also enjoyed the movie. Great casting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chrystal | 12/20/2013

    " I read it already for about 4 times. I really love it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kris Mehigan | 12/16/2013

    " Fun coming of age book (new adult BEFORE new adult was a thing). Lots of good tension and a reasonable lesson learned. However, the coolest thing about this book was the title (My vote for Top 10 best titles ever). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aprairiegirlincalifornia | 12/10/2013

    " I read this book in a few hours... Very crazy book, do girls really survive with osses like that?!?! An easy reader, that mostly just 'croaked me up' :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie Cooper | 12/7/2013

    " Great book- one of the few instances I would say the movie is better "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachelle | 10/31/2013

    " I wish I could give this book 4.5 stars. While I LOOOOOOOOVED it, I think it was partly spoiled by my watching the movie version first, several times, on repeat. I feel like the movie has a happier ending, and was sad that it was apparently an alteration from the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry Gorman | 8/10/2013

    " Great book. Funny. Entertaining. Great Story. Much better than the movie. "

    " I loved this book! If you can't stand your boss, read this book! It makes any most any boss look like a dream! I was disappointed that the movie adaptation left out the best part of the book-the relationship between the heroine and her best friend. Boo Hiss Hollywood. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel Toh | 3/8/2013

    " Kinda thought the movie was better. Been a while since I read this though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ☠ PNR Novel Review ☠| 12/27/2012

    " Loved this book! But wouldn't the storyline have been even better if it had a supernatural twist, and it turned out that Miranda was actually the Devil? ;-) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Joanne Dorfman | 10/10/2012

    " Terrible. Whoever wrote the screenplay is a genius. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gussy | 9/21/2012

    " Book was better than the film, but then again, when is it not? She is witty and the characters really came to life for me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Maria Kinsley | 9/15/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dianna Anderson | 3/18/2012

    " This is the book that taught me to adore chick lit. I loved it. I couldn't put it down once I started. Sooooo funny. After reading this book I went out and bought a pair of Seven jeans, and yes, they are fabulous "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sharon | 3/14/2012

    " Trite and shallow. It's hard to like a book where I don't like any of the main characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aruna Kumar Gadepalli | 11/7/2011

    " Those who read fashion related stories, this one is good. Andrea joins a high profile fashion magazine. Her lifestyle work habits change over a period of time. When her friend's accident news reaches her after a day long gap, makes her realize, what needs to be done. Interesting book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 5/22/2011

    " I stopped reading this, it was just too predictable. I actually told my husband it would probably make a good movie...boy did I call that one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 5/12/2011

    " This is the one time that I liked the movie more then the book. The book had a lot of bad language, and the characters were only, "so-so". It is an okay book, and some of it is really funny, but the movie is just a little better in this case. "

    " Brain candy with a heavy dose of profanity--the movie was much better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Odessa | 5/2/2011

    " The main characters moment of realization of mistreatment was abrupt and unexpected. Her decision to quit her job was unforeseen. Very bad transitioning. All in all a rather enjoyable book. "
