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.

Cyber World Help :)

Ok so I wanted to stick mainly to reviews for this page but I have a bit of a problem on my hands, and I thought maybe the people in cyber world would like to help. First off as you all know I wrote a review on the book water for elephants well being strictly a bookworm when I mentioned having read it to a friend she filled me in on the movie. I had, had no idea the movie existed so I asked does it actually… at the end? She confirmed that the part I liked the most of the book was actually in the movie so now my interest is peaked, but when I watched the trailer for it on itunes I just kept repeating “that’s not right” just from the trailer! So my question for everyone out there is, Is it even worth it to watch the movie or has Hollywood once again bastardized a movie beyond repair?

Now my next question is, I was at the PX and found a cheap copy of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls by Steve Hockensmith so of course for 5$ I grabbed it. I know it is a prequel to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies but I am wondering if I should read the first book first and then go back to Dawn of the Dreadfuls or just go on and read the prequel?

Thanks Guys! Now I am going to get back to reading so I can have a new review up for you hopefully by tomorrow if my DH will leave me alone lol!
