The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger Review

The Devil Wears Prada
By Lauren Weisberger

Andrea Sachs has recently graduated college and is trying to find a job that will someday lead her to working for The New Yorker, when she is hired by the most exasperating and demanding woman on the face of the planet, Miranda Priestly. Throughout the novel Andrea is forced day after day to do increasingly demeaning tasks and sacrifice her relationships with everyone around her, when she begins to change into someone unrecognizable even to herself she decides enough is enough.

The entire book is a satirical look at having a demanding boss which I am sure everyone can appreciate in one form or another. It’s witty and well written the only fault I have with it is that Lauren Weisberger seems to have some problem with southern people and describes them as tasteless, the main character even belittles the fact that her sister and brother in law live in Houston and have started to speak with southern accents. I am not quite sure why she finds this necessary but coming from Texas, I didn’t enjoy it whatsoever. It is completely unlike the movie which is a good thing I didn’t particularly enjoy the movie, the ending of the book was very lacking however it almost feels as though it didn’t end at all she just decided to quit writing. This is definitely a book you will have to read for yourself to see if you like it or not as for me it had its good points and it’s bad so I am not even sure if I did.
