Review: Revenge Wears Prada

Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns

Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns by Lauren Weisberger

Publisher: Simon and Schuester
Release Date: 20/06/13
Pages: 432
Genre: Chick-Lit

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 highend 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...

The Devil's back! Andy has spent 10 years Devil free but how much longer can it last? Andy and enemy turned best-friend Emily create a brand new bridal magazine - The Plunge. With Andy finally working for herself and having full creative control, everything seems to be falling into place. She has the perfect job, the perfect fiancé - what can go wrong? The answer is: a lot! Andy's relationship is not as great as she first thought, rumours are rife about Max and his ex-girlfriend and Andy doesn't know what to believe. And just when Andy thinks her life couldn't get any worse, in walks Miranda Priestly. Emily begins to push for Miranda's support for The Plunge but with Andy being completely anti-Miranda how will the magazine partnership work out for the girls?

I was so happy to check back in with Andy 10 years on. I desperately wanted to know what had happened to her. It was nice to see that she'd settled down and had a job that she loved - I think she deserved at after her year with Miranda. I was surprised to find that Andy and Emily were now friends, I was definitely not expecting that reunion. Emily and Andy didn't leave on the greatest terms when Andy got sacked! Emily had not changed that much since working for Miranda, she was still very much in control but Andy didn't seem to mind, that is why The Plunge worked so well - Emily had everything organised. It seemed at first that Emily had finally reached the same stage as Andy: she hated Miranda - this didn't last long. Emily seemed to completely forget how bad Miranda really was!

The parts of the book with Miranda were amazing! It was interesting to see how Miranda treated the girls now they were successful. She was definitely more of a suck-up around them but you could always see the real Miranda peeking through. I really enjoyed this book, it was lovely to spend a bit more time with Andy and see where her life would lead. I loved that I couldn't predict what would happen. I loved reading about Miranda, I actually wish she was in the book more, she really was such a character.

If you want to find out how Andy is getting on, this is a brilliant sequel that will have you thoroughly entertained, the twists and turns are written brilliantly by Lauren Weisberger.

4/5 Stars

  1. Yay a positive review of this book! I was really disappointed that it was getting such bad reviews as I was really looking forward to this!

    1. I know I was a bit wary! I can understand people's disappointment, Miranda doesn't appear in this book as much as the first one but following Andy's story was still great!
