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.


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."

Bob's wife says: As others have stated the title is incredibly misleading and the book itself is incredibly boring. Andy moves from one self-invented crises to the next and none of them are all that compelling. Oh no, my mother-in-law wrote a mean letter about me! Oh no, I'm pregnant while being married to a wealthy supportive man! Oh no, my old boss wants to give me millions of dollars for my magazine! If you want to read it, skip straight to page 300 where things finally start to pick-up beyond accounts of Andy's daily routine and of course her angst over become a millionaire in her own right.

I have fond memories of reading The Devil Wears Prada, so I was eager to read this sequel. Sadly, it doesn't hold up, and the letdowns start with the misleading title. Miranda Priestly is really a bit player in this book; the story is much more about Andy and how she feels about her marriage, her unplanned pregnancy, her wedding magazine co-founded with erstwhile enemy Emily (and how did that happen, anyway? Wasn't she done with the high-end fashion magazine world at the end of The Devil Wears Prada?).

There was enough here to keep me reading, so that bumps the book into the ‘above-average’ category, but there was also a lot that bothered me. The book as a whole feels strangely shallow: Andy seems to have become firmly a part of the world she so detested ten years earlier, fully invested in high fashion, living the New York dream life (whose wedding actually gets written up in the New York Times, really?) in an enormous, expensive apartment, and while I could identify with some of her grievances, sometimes it all got rather much, particularly in light of her continually refusing to actually discuss them with the other people concerned. And the ending wraps things up a bit too simply and neatly for me.

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

Read this book because I saw the first as a movie; the plot is good but the writer's style is that of a screen writer--all action and dialogue; immature style. Did the author assume it would become a movie and save them the re-write??

I thought I would have enjoyed this book as much as the first one, but it was not to be. Just reading the first couple of chapters was enough. Shame really.

Had to abandon reading this sequel. The first few chapters were slow, boring, not very well written and didn't seem to be going anywhere. Characters not very likeable , not even the heroine. A wasted opportunity for a great sequel to Devil Wears Prada.

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 kept waiting for the revenge plot to start and it never did. Feel as though the title is misleading. The book was fine but I agree that Andy is highly unlikable. Actually, all the characters are pretty unlikable.
