This is one of the only books I have ever read in my entire life where the film actually improved my perception It took me about three years to read this and the only reason I ever finished it was because everyone else seemed to think it was so great I thought I must be missing something I am generally bothered by books and films wherein the main character is offered an incredible opportunity but because they are worried they are sacrificing themselves they toss it out the window I am willing to add the film What a Girl Wants to this general category I had no sympathy for the lead character in this novel if she had true sense of self she could keep her job while not becoming her boss While I realize that these stories are supposed to be inspirational tales of right triumphing I always feel vaguely disgusted when I finish them to a great extent they remind me of what we are told at the beginning of law school If you go into your first year with good morals an awareness of right and wrong and a need to help people you can come out of law school and make a difference despite the grueling courses and backstabbing classmates If however you are scum law school will refine your techniues If the heroine in Prada was truly strong she would not have had to sell her soul she could have kept the job and realised it was just that A JOB Just plain disappointing Do yourself a favour if you feel you MUST muddle through this rent the movie Streep plays a truly inspired bitch

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 Devil PDFEPUB or 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 breatht. 35 starsIn Defense of Miranda PriestlyThe premise of this novel as most know it is OMG my boss is a total dragon lady but I think that is both an unfair assumption and oversimplification Little background is given of the title character other than she grew up in a lower class family changed her name and worked her way up the corporate ladder to her current position as editor in chief The audience isn’t given much than that to round out her character though Meryl Streep gives her depth in the movie adaptation—which isn’t saying much since Streep could star in the biography of a paper bag and still win an Oscar #ueenInstead we see Anna Wintour Miranda Priestly through the doe eyes of Andrea “Andy” Sachs who doesn’t realize that perhaps she is the real antagonist of the novel Through her own confession she has no clue about the company nor her potential boss when she takes on the role of Miranda’s 2nd assistant nor does she seem to really care While her coworkers at Runway are said to be vapid and stuck up they have a much better work ethic than the lazy Andy who complains about every part of her job except all the perks of which there are plenty She is ungrateful for the experience and the contacts she gains while doing Miranda’s errands instead she focuses on moaning about having to actually earn her dues I see her as an unreliable narrator since nearly all of her commentary comes from the place of entitlementPriestly is cast as the villain because she is difficult and demands efficiency though one could argue that this book wouldn’t be given nearly the mileage or popularity if the accusations hurled against her were by a male main character instead of speshul snowflake Andy There is a trope in modern culture that women in leadership positions have to fight double standards for acting the same way as their male counterparts and this is never touched upon in the novel Can Miranda be cold and condescending at times Yes however it is important to understand how much she has accomplished her worth to the magazine and the fashion world and the respect she has garnered in the industry She wouldn’t have gotten where she was if she didn’t have talent and gumptionIf there’s an unlikeable character here it’s unappreciative Andy who doesn’t like that she has to live outside the bubble she grew up in While she keeps being reminded that hers is a job that “a million girls would die for” and that working for Miranda for a year would save her 3 5 years of experience elsewhere she decides to blow up at her boss in the 11th hour While the author was probably looking for the audience to cheer at the childish outburst of “Fuck you Miranda Fuck you” p 342 and the resulting flouncing from Paris I found this tantrum to be déclassé and further proof of Andy’s wanton unprofessionalism

The Devil Wears PradaLattes 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 From the Hardcover edition. A woman came up to me while I was reading this book and said Oh how is that book I've been meaning to read it I answered Um well it's kind of fun She raised her eyebrows at me I see I added I wouldn't pay full price for it I got it on sale for like a dollar She nodded as she began to walk away Okay I know what you're sayingI can explain if you still feel like reading this book Honestly I won't stop you from reading The Devil Wears Prada I just don't suggest you push off absolutely everything else in order to do it There are many many worthy booksThe main character AndreaAndy is just really not likeable I wish she was I kept trying to see her point of view But she really bothered me She had a great opportunity to get into the publishing business fashion business or whatever else She just had to hold out for a year Fine she's getting four or five hours of sleep a night I really don't care Fine her boss is ridiculous But Andrea defiantly sighs at her to show her how she feels which really just makes her a big baby I didn't like a lot of the people I worked for but if you're a hardworker you're not going to huff and puff to prove your point that all of this is beneath you You're going to suck it up and do it Andrea acts like the super expensive fashionable clothes that everybody wears are ridiculous and yes she sells what she has at the end but she also puts down Franco Sarto shoes and Ann Taylor or was it Express which made Andy pretty hard to relate to since most people reading the book are probably wearing those things She doesn't treat her best friend well the entire time which okay sometimes these things get left behind when you're busy but come on she was an alcoholic Pull it together Andy and be a friend And when she tells off Miranda at the end God I really think the author was going for that whole Yeah sock it to her Andy thing but that's really not how I felt I wanted to tell Andy to grow up Wouldn't a decent person and adult have said Look Miranda my friend has been in an accident I'm sorry if you want me to stay but I have to go Which okay that's not the best ending either but really don't bring up the whole friend in an accident thing and then have Andy blow up and uit because she couldn't get Miranda's two kids some passports Yes I understand that in the back of her head Andy was probably upset about her friend but that really didn't come out at all There's a lot to complain about but really do I have to say anything elseWeak
