This is the story of Andrea Sachs fresh out of college as an English Major aspiring to get a break in the publishing world. She signs up as a Junior Assistant to Miranda Priestly, editor of a fashion magazine. What transpires in the job and how she struggles to survive in a job she hates is the theme of the book.
What I thought about it
I picked this book up when I saw it in a car boot sale. So I paid only 50p for it. When I was not in a mood for a serious read this week, I decided to get a quick read out of this book. It was a funny book with fast paced narration. We can relate to many of the characters - the struggles to please your boss, the effort to achieve work/life balance, trying to please everyone around you when no one seems to see things from your point of view.
The book is also adapted into a movie starring Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep. I think they both did a commendable performance in the movie.
Don't expect a great book out of it, but definitely worth it if you are looking for quick light read.
