Review for the Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger

*       This is my second time through the Devil Wears Prada . I liked it the first time around. It was also the first chick literature book I ever read. Who couldn't identify with Andy and her trials in pleasing her boss?

*       The story of the Devil Wears Prada chronicles Andrea Sachs life during her first job. The job is working for Miranda Priestly the Editor and Chief of Runway magazine. Miranda has two assistants Emily and her newest Emily. Andrea finds out that she is immediately over her head in this position but if she can just stick it out her dream job awaits. The first lesson that Andy learns is that she has a rather low fashion IQ. Emily and the other staff take great joy in pointing this out. While Andy feels like she is busy with the tasks that Miranda asks her to accomplish.  She is dying to complain about her job. She does it with the Runway Paranoid turnaround. You are wondering what a Runway Paranoid turnaround is? Well you just have to read the book in this case.

*       Andy also has friends and family to contend with as well. Her family lives in Connecticut and her sister flies in from time to time. She finds herself too busy to even have time for them. Then there is her boyfriend Alex and his career is already set. He is understanding of her career in the beginning but cannot understand Andy's priorities with her friends. Andy spends a lot of time with her best friend Lily. She is supportive of Andy but she does not pay attention because of her alcohol consumption.
  I really liked this book.  I loved the book the second time around!  Pick up this author and sit back for a good time.

Ratings:  5/5
