Inhalt und Details

A delightfully dishy novel about the all-time most impossible boss in the history of impossible bosses.

Andrea Sachs, a small-town girl fresh out of college, lands the job "a million girls would die for." Hired as the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the high-profile, fabulously successful editor of Runway magazine, Andrea finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn, a world populated by impossibly thin, heart-wrenchingly stylish women and beautiful men clad in fine-ribbed turtlenecks and tight leather pants that show off their lifelong dedication to the gym. With breathtaking ease, Miranda can turn each and every one of these hip sophisticates into a scared, whimpering child.

THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA gives a rich and hilarious new meaning to complaints about "The Boss from Hell." Narrated in Andrea's smart, refreshingly disarming voice, it traces a deep, dark, devilish view of life at the top only hinted at in gossip columns and over Cosmopolitans at the trendiest cocktail parties. From sending the latest, not-yet-in-stores Harry Potter to Miranda's children in Paris by private jet, to locating an unnamed antique store where Miranda had at some point admired a vintage dresser, to serving lattes to Miranda at precisely the piping hot temperature she prefers, Andrea is sorely tested each and every day-and often late into the night with orders barked over the phone. She puts up with it all by keeping her eyes on the prize: a recommendation from Miranda that will get Andrea a top job at any magazine of her choosing. As things escalate from the merely unacceptable to the downright outrageous, however, Andrea begins to realize that the job a million girls would die for may just kill her. And even if she survives, she has to decide whether or not the job is worth the price of her soul.

From the Hardcover edition. "[A] funny, biting, low-cal treat."
-Rush & Molloy, The New York Daily News

"A deliciously witty and gossipy first novel."
-Publishers Weekly

"[An] on-the-money kiss-and-tell debut.
-Kirkus

Ganz anders wie der Film
von Olivia am 21.06.2016

Im Film mögen die Angestellten von Runway Andy überhaupt nicht. Aber im Buch ist das nicht so außer Miranda natürlich. Im Großen und Ganzen ist das Buch schon cool aber ich fande den Film viel besser (normalerweise ist das immer umgekehrt...hier nicht!)

Nicht schlecht...
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 06.11.2007

..ich habe das buch sowohl auf englisch als auch auf deutsch gelesen und fand es beide male super!!

Muss man nicht gelesen haben
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 10.09.2006

Nachdem sich der Klappentext so überzeugend angehört hat, war ich vom ganzen Buch aber eher entäuscht. Man kann einfach nicht nachvollziehen warum Andrea nicht einfach kündigt. Ich bin schon gespannt, ob sich im Film die Handlung auch so furchtbar lang hinzieht.
