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.

    " Loved this book, made me laugh out loud and then want to reach in and slap a few of the Characters. Defo good holiday read that you would want to read again and again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hanna Varrone | 2/9/2014

    " This book is fun, quirky,and very entertaining. I had watched the movie before i read it, which is never a good idea but it gave me a whole new perspective on how the story could have been told! I really liked this book! :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rain | 2/7/2014

    " "Ah-dre-ahh, I think I like the movie more. That is all." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise Terpstra | 1/30/2014

    " Easy relaxed read, nothing too mind-boggling. Good for an evening on the couch with a warm sweater and a cup of tea after a long day of work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Selina Velasquez | 1/29/2014

    " The Devil Wears Prada is deffinitley a book for girly girls. It's about a young women who struggles on trying to find out who she is, and trying to find her career. Her boss makes her job almost inpossible. However, she stays strong and doesn't let anything get to her. The girls are very glamorous and big drama queens which causes a lot of the drama is the story. I would say people who like to read girl drama would enjoy this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anne Clement | 12/14/2013

    " I enjoyed the book until the ending. I felt the ending was just too rushed for me. The movie was much better. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laurie | 12/1/2013

    " I enjoyed reading about NYC and the fashion industry but over all this was not the type of book that I enjoy reading. I enjoy this type of book as a movie more than an escape in reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel Snell | 11/30/2013

    " I haven't read this in a few years, but I know I loved it! I have this in my personal library and I look forward to reading it again one day! The movie was excellent as well. The movie actually inspired me to read the book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennavier | 11/27/2013

    " The sad thing is, I liked the movie better. Bitter and odd, but still funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trisha Proud | 11/21/2013

    " A real, raw and insightful read about the politics within the fashion industry with a lovely twist at the end with the down trodden young rookie making good! A heart warm good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jacki | 10/8/2013

    " Was ok was one of my book club books "

    " I loved this book! So funny! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jillian | 3/25/2013

    " Reasonably privileged White girl whines for 360 pages with supporting cast of mostly unlikeable characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rita Salazar | 3/18/2013

    " Kind of reminded me of my own experiences with working with demanding and eccentric public figures. So for that, I took away a star. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Regina | 1/9/2013

    " Review: For me, the story was a "sort-of-boring thingy". You didn't expect those characters in the book will be the same as the movie. As it turns out that the movie is MUCH worth watching than reading this book. The plot is very different. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather Parker | 12/20/2012

    " Enjoyable chick-lit. I'd give 3.5 stars if that was an option! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ☠ PNR Novel Review ☠| 12/13/2012

    " 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? ;-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina Jeademann | 8/23/2012

    " I liked the book much more than the movie "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katelin | 5/27/2012

    " I read this a couple years before the movie was released. It is much more dynamic than the movie and is a fun beach read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gosia | 2/10/2012

    " Not as good as I thought it was going to be, although better than the movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley | 12/31/2011

    " Light and fun, especially for young professional women with impossible to please bosses. Not as gracious as the movie, which I appreciate. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachelle | 11/21/2011

    " 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 Lori Kovatch long | 10/10/2011

    " good light summer read to see how the other half lives "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara | 5/24/2011

    " Meh. I can't believe the protagonist let herself be tortured for 11 months and then just "snapped out of it." Book was just flat, I had to struggle to finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 5/23/2011

    " This was a ton of fun to read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mshodes | 5/22/2011

    " This book was kind of fun, but it mostly stressed me out. I had a hard time believing someone would put up with all that crap without doing something about it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hollie (cloverholliee) | 5/20/2011

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rp | 5/13/2011

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patti | 5/4/2011

    " Movie was 10x better. Way overrated. "
