Weisberger created an incredibly realistic picture of how Andy’s life would turn out. Although one wants to imagine the heroine of the The Devil Wears Prada would be crazy successful, that’s just not today’s world for anyone with media aspirations. Andy maintained her go-getter attitude while revealing her many conflicting emotions. With Weisberger’s mostly spot-on details (I found it hard to believe when Emily slammed her phone shut in Chapter 18—Emily would totally have an iPhone), it was easy to imagine how the characters evolved over the years. And the setup of Miranda’s revenge was perfect.
About the audiobook: Megan Hilty!!! I want Hilty to narrate every audiobook from now on. Her reading was absolutely incredible—she read every thought and dialogue in such a way that I could visualize the characters who were thinking or saying them. I also never had any question as to who was speaking as Hilty gave each a distinctive voice. Revenge Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger was released in 2013 by Simon & Schuster Audio. It runs 13 hours.
