What was that?!!! Basically I think the only part that sort of stayed "true" to the original, was the ending where Andy actually writes for a legitimate paper, instead of a FASHION magazine!

OMG, this book in it's entirety was ridiculous! Pretty much everyone seemed so out of character compared to the first book. Yes I understand that 10 years has passed and people change, but there is no way that is Emily or Andy! Was Andy ever so paranoid and un-trusting of Alex? No! But why does she do that with Max, her pretty much perfect boyfriend/husband?!

So we start off with Andy waiting to get married, only to find a letter written by her future MIL in regards to Andy not being the "perfect fit" to Max and Max running into his former and "perfect" ex. Next thing you know, a million crazy things is running through Andy's mind, from wanting to run from her wedding to throwing up. Yeah total bombshell.... even when she asks Max about it later on, she still doesn't believe or trust him (poor guy). And oh yeah she totally thinks she got STD from Max, when he supposedly cheated with the ex, yeah totally can't be the other possible reason (like maybe being pregnant???)

Her and Emily with their magazine The Plunge .... I feel conflicted. After what happened at Runway, I would have thought Andy would have nothing to do with fashion magazines in that sense.... it's just weird!

And the whole revenge thing by Miranda, it feels all like it was built up in Andy's mind! And this supposed revenge just keeps dragging on and on and on....like where is the intensity and hatred that we are left to believe Miranda will unleash on them?! This so called "revenge" was a total let down and boring! It took too long and nothing really unexpected happened. Snooze!

Basically, don't waste your time with this book. It is not worth it AT ALL!

Overly sappy & uncharismatic. Stick with the original, cause this sequel sucks....

The book starts off solid, but the main premise (the devil returns) is drawn out far too long. The bulk of the book takes place over the course of 3 months or so, and it honestly seems we have to live every one of those days, and the monotony of Andy's fears.

*Yawn*

A patron review from the Adult Summer Reading Game: "After reading some amazing books this summer, this was just okay. Andy is back and has reinvented herself as a successful creator of a new magazine, but her old boss is trying to purchase the magazine, which will make Andy's life torturous."

Highly enjoyed reading this book! Probably not as good as The Devil Wears Prada but it was a fun read.

I expected the sequel to "The Devil Wears Prada" to be full of high drama, high fashion, high heels, and, of course, a larger-than-life Miranda Priestly. Majorly disappointed on all counts. The first 300 pages are boring, syrupy, sentimental, useless filler. This book did not deliver.

I thought this book was slow during the beginning, but the ending totally made up for it. I really enjoyed this book!!!

The revenge wears Prada(The Devil returns) - this title leads one to believe that Miranda Priestly returns in all her nasty avatar and Andy takes revenge.

If anything, Miranda is conspicuous by her absence. One realizes then what an impact she'd made in "The devil wears Prada." The book rambles on and on with events taking a long time to pan out exactly as the reader would probably imagine; no twist in the tale whatsoever. But for the fact that it is the sequel to a bestseller and a hit movie this book has nothing to offer.

I really enjoyed the first part of this book. I would skip the last couple of chapters and use your imagination. It will likely be better. Lauren Weisberger wasted a perfect opportunity to write a 3rd book in this series. Over all in my opinion, it's worth the read!

Very slow and boring. The author put half as much effort as she did in Devil wears Prada. If this becomes a movie will not waste my money.
