The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger

There were so many things that frustrated me about this book. I'm sure many will disagree with me but as a devoted fashionista, I have to say I thought Andrea was competely nuts giving up her job. Her friends are adults who are at an age where they are completely capable of taking care of themselves. Lily-she gave up her job for Lily???! A reckless drunk who couldn't get her life in order so she has to guilttrip her friend into giving up a chance in a lifetime??! and seriously, what was up with the ex-bf? Stay out of it, it's none of your efffing business! Eugh! My mind just keeps going back to the accident. SHE WAS DRUNK!! and as a result Andrea had to pay. I think maybe, I'm reading too into this. It was clear that Andy had major issues with her boss and had contemplated numerous times on quitting but contiuned to plod through hell (or her idea of, I'm sure many will think of it as heaven!!). I guess Andrea was never really felt she fit into the world of fashion, she admittedly took the job because she knew that having worked for Miranda Priestly would open doors for her. I guess I would just love the idea of working for a fashion magazine, I would not give up on it so easily. A lot of changes were made to the book when adapting into a film but I loved both!! At first I did think it was going to be one of those rarity's that fall into the "film's better" category but upon completeion i think I enjoyed it as much as the film. It was tres difficult to decide, obviously biased since Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep are in the film-two of my favourite actresses!!
