Andrea Sachs is the personal assistant to Miranda Priestly, the high-profile, fabulously successful editor of Runway magazine. As can be imagined, the relationship of Ms. Priestly to Ms. Sachs is one of unmitigated oppression, enormous egoism, and blatant disregard for human feeling. Andrea is given a series of increasingly degrading and mind-bogglingly menial tasks, and must complete all of them, around the clock, without complaint. What induces Andrea to suffer this treatment? It is the dangled promise that a recommendation from Miranda will get Andrea a top job at any magazine of her choosing. But as her burden increases, she realizes that she may have made a deal with the devil, and that the price of a future job may be her very soul.… (mais)

Okay.... Honestly, I'm rather dissapointed with this book. I hate to say this, but the movie was better.

The book wasn't badly written, I just really, really disliked this version of Andy. In the book she's a whining, self-centered, stealing (yes, stealing. Making all those extra expenses and charging them to the company is stealing. She even admits she does it to spite her employer) and disrespectful person.

Also, Miranda isn't nearly as evil as the title wants you to believe. She's just demanding, and rightfully so (in my opinion. She didn't get were she's now without working hard).
As for the complaints for being on call 24/7: Andy was hired as a personal assistant. That comes with the territory, everyone knows that. And the promised pay-off for a year of servitude isn't bad either.

Here's the big difference between the movie and the book: the girl Ann Hathaway portrayed seemed to have a nice personality, Andy Sach's personality is bordering on vile.
It takes her best friend having an almost-fatal accident to have her consider anyone else then herself, and even then, I, as a reader, am not convinced this is a lasting change.
The subjects of her freelance stories (which sound like they're bordering on tell-all vengeance) seem to support this.

Oh, and the way Andy leaves Paris? Rather immature. I understand the stress of the past year building up, but really, I don't believe that warrants the cursing.

This review was probably a bit of a rambling, that's just because my thoughts on the book. If it hadn't been for Andy Sachs, I would have liked it. ( )

I needed complete brain candy when I read this and it didn't disappoint. It was a breezy quick read, but not as bad as I expected. I've read some chick lit that are just terrible, but this one was actually decent. The main character's complaining got a bit old, but I hated her self-righteous friends and boyfriend even more. I actually sided with her when they bitched about her job. I also really enjoyed the peek into the fashion/publishing world, and the boss was just as deliciously evil as I wanted her to be. Meryl Streep is fantastic in the movie but made Miranda a bit too likable at the end. I loved the bitch on wheels in the book. ( )

this was exactly what i wanted right now. i'm not sure how much i'd like it at a different point of time, but this was the perfect light palate cleanser, reset that i needed. i thought it would be more about fashion than it was, thankfully. the main character actually knows nothing about fashion when she ends up working for the biggest fashion magazine and the most "important" fashion diva around. it was more about that awful experience, and how someone's priorities can totally shift, or maybe how easy it is to make excuses for yourself. i know that i related more than i wish i did to the main character, and to making the decisions she did, when she shouldn't have.

there are some continuity issues with the writing - a couple made it genuinely hard to understand what was happening at some points. but overall this was an easy, fun, sometimes cheeky read that reminds you of what matters. ( )

Miranda was, as far as I could tell, a truly fantastic editor. Not a single word of copy made it into the magazine without her explicit, hard-to-obtain approval, and she wasn't afraid to scrap something and start over, regardless of how inconvenient or unhappy it made everyone else.
