The sequel you've been waiting for: the follow-up to the sensational #1 bestseller The Devil Wears Prada .

Almost a decade has passed since Andy Sachs quit the job "a million girls would die for" working for Miranda Priestly at Runway magazine--a dream that turned out to be a nightmare. Andy and Emily, her former nemesis and co-assistant, have since joined forces to start a high-end bridal magazine. The Plunge has quickly become required reading for the young and stylish. Now they get to call all the shots: Andy writes and travels to her heart's content; Emily plans parties and secures advertising like a seasoned pro. Even better, Andy has met the love of her life. Max Harrison, scion of a storied media family, is confident, successful, and drop-dead gorgeous. Their wedding will be splashed across all the society pages as their friends and family gather to toast the glowing couple. Andy Sachs is on top of the world. But karma's a bitch. The morning of her wedding, Andy can't shake the past. And when she discovers a secret letter with crushing implications, her wedding-day jitters turn to cold dread. Andy realizes that nothing--not her husband, nor her beloved career--is as it seems. She never suspected that her efforts to build a bright new life would lead her back to the darkness she barely escaped ten years ago--and directly into the path of the devil herself...

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.

Weak sequel - entertaining, but somewhat unbelievable. Perhaps its because I will never have rich friends, create my own successful magazine and get millions of dollars in a buyout from Conde Nast (here alias Elias Clark).

Also, that Miranda Priestly would even need to destroy a rival wedding publication seems implausible. Not the best, but a quick and light summer read.
