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!

A fun light story for a week when I felt like I never had more than 5 minutes to just sit and read.

Caught at a meeting of Wellington BookCrossers in the Trax Cafe at the Central Railway station in Wellington. Sorry for the delay in registering but I have now read it so can comment herein, albeit rather briefly.

Journal Entry 6 by Sherlockfan at Wellington City, Wellington Province New Zealand on Friday, November 29, 2019
While I can agree with oozy67's comment about "all-time most impossible boss in the history of impossible bosses" I felt total disbelief that anyone could be quite such a revolting employer yet achieving such remarkable apparent success in the wide world.
At times I felt like discarding the journal though I kept getting lured into the astonishing Runway Journey that "Ahn-dre-ah" had chosen to take with a completely different objective. New York's wider cityscape of adherents rushing hither and yon to please their bosses kept dragging me back to the on-going tale. It kept me intrigued and waiting to see how it would unfold. I suppose one could/would give the book a higher rating. Was it a waste of time? It certainly did not give me a wider view of life in the fast lane. Would I recommend the book?
Not to a serious reader whose time was precious.
But perhaps as a filler-in during one's personal down time as it was for me.
What will I do with it - Oh Yes! I'll look through the Wishlists.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

I researched on the WishLists and was delighted to find tigergirlnz from Hawkes Bay, New Zealand, looking for this book. Quite close to me really, and an area with which I am familiar, having lived in both Havelock North and Hastings for a couple of years.
I am always delighted to pass books on to persons who are actually looking for them.
Unlike most of my friends I have not seen the film so it all came as a big surprise to me. Miranda is both unbelievable and hard to get to grips with. Psychologists would have a field day trying to make her out.
I'll be most anxious to learn what tigergirlnz makes of it.
It will be posted on 9 December 2019 - can't get used to the US date format alas.

Received from Sherlockfan (of whom it seems I am actually related to!) - This will go on top of Mount TBR but I do look forward to reading it eventually, especially as I love the movie. Meryl Streep is so incredibly good and I love Emily Blunt. For ANYONE who hasn't seen the movie - oh please do, it's so good! Thank you Sherlockfan :D

Edit as I'm reading this, July 2021: So far I think the movie is SO much better, so if you haven't seen it, then DO! Miranda's characters is actually based on someone (I forget the name as I don't follow fashion) in the fashion magazine world. What a tyrant!

Sadly abandoned at page 127...what can I say? I guess I've been ruined by seeing the movie and loving it. The book came before the movie but I wish the movie was how the book had been written. I just couldn't like any of the characters and found them irritating. The truth is, I'm not into girly fashionista novels. I really couldn't care about fashion and really can't stand 'hilarious' quips about people being fat. I love the movie because even though Miranda is the kind of boss you wouldn't want, all the characters in the movie (roles played by wonderful actresses like Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt) are portrayed in believable ways within the story. What has happened up until page 127 of the book is so un-believable to the point I could have thrown the book at a wall in frustration. I hope the next reader loves this stuff, unfortunately I just didn't and need to move on to something I hopefully will enjoy more :-)
