Bought a copy of “The Devil Wears Prada” yesterday. So far it’s been a pretty fun read. Andy’s boyfriend sounded boring and annoying– he didn’t seem to understand just how horrible her job and her boss were. Although sometimes no matter how hard you try, words just don’t seem to do justice to the reality.
I liked the line near the beginning of the book about her fellow college graduates working entry level jobs that were boring and repititive, stuff that they could hire monkeys to do. Tried to look for the exact quote but it’s 1am (what the hell am I doing up?) and I’m having trouble putting sentences together.
The book doesn’t really have a plot. It’s mostly a string of anecdotes. Miranda acts like a spoiled petulant child. It can get repititive.
Want to see the movie. I’ve heard it’s even better than the book.
The writing was okay. Actually I thought it was better written than Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code or John Grisham’s The Firm, both written seemingly for the lowest common denominator. Lord, I HATE John Grisham’s writing. Annoying lawyer who thinks he can write. Blegh. Ptooie!
