  1. Here s a conversation I had with a friend regarding the first 30% of this book Andy, you re overreacting NO SHIT YOU RE OVERREACTING.It is one thing to read about a self absorbed rhymes with itch when it comes to YA fiction, it is another thing entirely to encounter such a pitiful, sorry excuse of a human being in an adult contemporary I cannot recall ever having such hatred for an adult main character within a book.This is one of the instances when I was sorry that I have a digital copy of this [...]

  2. Imagine if ABC Family or E were to write a made for TV sequel for the movie The Devil Wears Prada, that screenplay would be better written and believable a sequel than this book The only reason I m writing this review is to DISCOURAGE anyone even remotely curious about this book to read it If you loved the original book, you will not enjoy this one I read the entire thing just so I could confirm that there are no worthwhile parts in all 391 pages Andy becomes such an unlikeable, whiny and overa [...]

  3. I don t think I ve ever written a review before, but I just put this down and I am so disappointed that I can only deal with this by typing up a long, sad rant view spoiler First of all, the title is completely nonsensical The Devil Wears Prada, alright, Miranda Priestly is the devil and she is dressed in Prada I can roll with that But now revenge wears Prada Revenge isn t a proper noun And if Revenge is supposed to refer to Miranda, then that doesn t make sense because she has zero desire for r [...]

  4. In The Devil Wears Prada, I liked Andy because I could relate to her She was young, just out of college, idealistic with big dreams and working this glamorous job that was going to put her on the map except her boss is the worst and the reality kind of sucks I could empathize with Andy and wonder if I were in her shoes, could I do it Could I stand to work for Miranda and could I not get fired In the sequelI hated Andy I found her whiny, self absorbed and overly sensitive about everything She bas [...]

  5. The storyline was horribly off course and the direction Weisberger chose to take these characters were completely displaced The author did a hasty and watered down job with this sequel, not to mention, the characters were boring and lacked depth The author clearly attempted no effort in character building this time around and the book read similar to that of a summary as opposed to a true novel In addition, Weisberger was inconsistent with her writing format considering that she did not continue [...]

  6. While everyone on GoodReads seems to hate the sequel, I thought it was an entertaining summer read I read the first book so long ago that I don t remember the tone of the characters, and actually rather picture them as their movie versions especially Emily Miranda , so I didn t feel let down by a lack of consistency The most frustrating part was how upset by her husband s omission about his bachelor party would she really divorce him over that and the most unbelievable part was Alex s reappearan [...]

  7. This did not meet my expectations at all The title had me conjuring images of the evil Miranda, going out of her way to wreak havoc on Andy s life But, Miranda played a rather minor role in the book.What I didn t like 1 Andy and Emily becoming great friends so much so that they start a magazine together WHAT was a stretch for me 2 The writing was boring I found myself skimming parts of it 3 Miranda played such a minor role, and really, the actual things she did in book could hardly be called rev [...]

  8. What a load of dribble What the hell was this When I saw a copy of this in my local bookstore I almost knocked down 2 children and a women to grab a copy I immediately rushed home and opened the first chapter waiting in anticipation at what horrors Miranda Priestly could possibly put Andy through.Having myself worked in a similar position to Andy I found the original book The Devil Wears Prada very insightful to read But this.what the hell Lauren, if you ever get to read this my advice Don t wri [...]

  9. Just, so, unbelievably bad You really shouldn t write a book unless you have a story to tell The narrative just kind of stumbles around hopelessly between little vignettes she thought would be glamourous or dramatic And I m all for an anti hero but I want to punch Andrea Sachs right in her doesn t realise she s gorgeous, pseudo righteous, spoilt, selfish, miserable face I mean, she s crazy rich and beautiful and successful and talented and spends all her time at the Hamptons or with celebrities [...]

  10. I was so disappointed in this book I thought by the Title that Miranda was going to unleash her fury on Andy for quitting her instead of her being fired I guess i should have read the synopsis fault However, I kept wondering if i got the Devil wears Prada mixed up with the heroine in Everyone worth knowing but then it didn t matter because i liked them both and thought them to be interchangeable Not so with this book, I HATED Andy I wanted to punch her in the face I WANTED Max to have cheated on [...]

  11. What the hell was this I checked the front several times because I simply could not believe that Weisberger wrote this It read like a 15 year old girl decided to write fanfiction based on the original novel The first book was certainly not the Great American Novel, but it was fun, silly, both ridiculous and relatable at the same time, and the characters were entertaining The characters seemed to both devolve and evolve, which is very normal for people fresh out of college, I think But this I do [...]

  12. I loved DWP and counted down to the release of this for months I was so excited and began reading it last night I ve just finished it and I am so disappointed The title is completely misleading, as I never read anything about Miranda Priestly getting revenge or the girls getting revenge on Miranda correct me of I m wrong I grew tired of Andy s unnecessary complaining about how MP ruined their lives its been 10 years, move on.Andy is a character who I neither like nor disliked, I was simply disin [...]

  13. I stayed up most of the night reading this That s not because the book was so compelling, but because I was waiting fruitlessly for either revenge or Prada to factor in The title would be completely misleading, except that eventually a very minor character, so minor she has no actual dialogue, is cited as having a Prada backpack customized with puffy paint Among the failings of this book Andrea Sachs has become everything she hated in the first book The revelation that Emily eats is perhaps the [...]

  14. Two stars for some witty bits It deserves one for everything else.Things I Hated About This Book 1 The protagonist has become an idiot She conceives an angst about her husband s love for her due to a his failure to inform her that he ran into an ex girlfriend during his bachelor weekend and b a note she finds from his mother where the mother discloses that she thinks Andy is a social inferior who will put her career ambitions before her husband future family Despite the husband s obvious love fo [...]

  15. Well, that was a loss of time.First off, I want to mention that I liked Devil Wears Prada I thought it was fun.ough I liked the movie better.Revenge Wears Prada is false representation.You see Miranda a mere 3 times, not even 3 full chapters And she doesn t really take her revenge ISN T revenge It has nothing to do with it NOTHING.I also want to mention that this book is a 381 page of nothing Nothing happens It s boring Boring boring boring.The characters in the book don t even hold their previo [...]

  16. I must confess that I did not actually read The Devil Wears Prada but did LOVE the movie While this book picks up 10 years after Andy Sachs leaves Miranda Priestley in Paris Andy finds herself in a new relationship and running her own bridal magazine The Plunge with frenemy Emily yes, the same one from Runway.At first, it was fun but very quickly the author took this book in a direction that was dull and unrealistic Without giving away major plot points, just didn t have the same appeal that the [...]

  17. The Devil Wears Prada was by no means a literary masterpiece, but at least it was entertaining The same cannot be said of this book I kept waiting for Miranda to make an appearance as she was the best part about the book and the movie But she doesn t even appear until about half way through the book, and even then she s a minor character at best Instead we re subjected to listening to the protagonist Andie whine about anything and everything even while we re informed that she s getting married t [...]

  18. I just finished this book and even though I haven t written a review before this book compelled me to do so I agree with other commenters that the style of writing in this book feels half hearted best I was extremely irritated by just how disjointed the whole thing felt, the flip flopping between the past and present was irritating at best The worst thing about this book is that I genuinely loved The Devil Wears Prada, not particularly well written but a great light hearted read where I genuinel [...]

  19. Epic fail on so many levels, but let me just name a few 1 Lacks the originality and fun mean girl spirit of the first book.2 Lacks that same you are living it feel.3 In the original book, we see a young woman torn between the path to the next stage in her life and giving up because her boss is a beast But we also see how working for Miranda makes some positive and negative changes in Andrea, until she reaches a breaking point and comes to her senses about what is really important to her In this [...]

  20. I admit to being not a huge fan of The Devil Wears Prada book, it was a decent chick lit read, but after watching the film again recently I ve lost count the number of times I ve watched it that when I heard about the follow up book I felt really encouraged in giving it a go And I m so glad that I did because it was the best chick lit book I have read in a long time.In Revenge Wears Prada, we find ourselves back with Andy ten years after she left Miranda Priestly hanging at Paris fashion week Fo [...]

  21. Maybe I ve been spoiled by the extravagant plots of the tv series, revenge , but when I think of that word, it invokes malicious, twisted venomous plots to destroy, maim, torture and humiliate And I was rubbing my hands together with glee imagining Miranda s revenge, after Andy s famous Paris slight of the fashion maverick Unfortunately this sequel doesn t deliver What you get instead is a boring cross between what to expect when you re expecting and a mish mash of all those other dull, predicta [...]

  22. Normally I don t rate a book I DNF because it s kinda rude However, I have read enough of Lauren Weisberger to officially and publicly denounce any loyalty I may have had for her As much as I love classics and fantasy, every once in a blue moon a girl needs some fluff Lauren Weisberger s books were sort of like that for me fluffy books The Devil Wears Prada was actually an excellent book considering it is mostly classified as chick lit I loved it so much that I actually read two of her books on [...]

  23. As a long time Devil Wears Prada fan, I ve been excited about this sequel since I first heard it existed Unfortunately, Revenge Wears Prada fell short of my expectations.Andy still has nightmares following her year as Miranda Priestly s assistant at Runway magazine However, ten years on, Andy has moved on and is doing well She s the co founder and editor in chief of a high end bridal magazine, about to get married to a successful and handsome man and has some fantastic friends in her corner But [...]

  24. This book should of been relegated to the back catalogue of Mills and Boon Biggest load of drivel When I seen this I got so excited and had to read it straight away despite being halfway through a book that was actually decent First mistake right there My second mistake was actually bothering to finish it Maybe I expected to much but I can t be the only one who envisioned Miranda getting revenge in a deeply twisted and cunning way In the first few chapters I thought it would have something to do [...]

  25. I loved Weisberger s debut novel The Devil Wears Prada was outstanding slick, smart, and with a lead character who I fell in love with And then, there was Miranda Priestly She leapt off the page with every barb, every snide remark.But this This is Devil Lite This is Lesser Demon This is Imp.Please don t make me describe the plot I ll start crying Andrea Sachs has been reduced to a caricature a simpering mess of a woman, neither believable nor fun to be around She is impossibly friends with forme [...]

  26. I was looking forward to this book and pre ordered for my Kindle so I d have it as soon as it was available First thing Tuesday morning, I jumped out of bed and grabbed my Kindle, ready to begin my day with breakfast, Andy, Emily and Miranda Unfortunately, what I found was disappointing I REALLY tried to enjoy it In fact, I thought that maybe I hadn t had enough coffee yet I set the book down, grabbed another cup, of coffee and sat back down and started in again I made four attempts to get throu [...]

  27. If you loved the first book, don t read this one What a lazy, predictable effort Who knew I could get so irritated at a chick book Weisberger reduces the Andy character to a whiny, insecure, pushover and, rather than following through and describing what could have been some great confrontational moments, she brings the characters to the cusp of a huge moment and then POOF suddenly skips ahead to weeks or even many months later Nothing is resolved The Miranda character pops in and out intermitte [...]

  28. Summer beach read, or delightful romp, whatever There s a lot of fun to be had in this book but it needs another round of editing and also some better writing The title makes absolutely no sense The plot is just funny Nothing happens, then something happens, then nothing happens, then something happens Name brand this, lavish description of that Andy is a completely different character from Devil Wears Prada It s like she s had a lobotomy Emily is still wonderful Andy s motivations and inability [...]

  29. I respect and admire Lauren Weisberger, so I hate to leave a poor review I expected this book to be a quick summer read, like The Devil Wears Prada It was not The book timeline jumped around so much I had to reread many paragraphs to be clear on sequencing While I anticipated the development of Andy s character, the drags and jumps of the timeline gave me literary whiplash Due to the title, I expected Miranda Priestly s character to have a active role in ruining Andy s life, but the revenge was [...]

  30. This is a pretty weak excuse for a book Basically, a bunch of neurotic New Yorkers runnning around being wealthy and whining, with long boring passages of description of clothes or houses The narrative structure is terrible so much of the action happens in flashbacks um, show don t tell, anyone , so there was no immediacy I hate plots that turn on the characters NOT talking about something that s just lazy, you know The timeline would shift forward 4 or 5 months, and then the characters would sa [...]
