Book Review of "The Devil Wears Prada"

I have read this book couple of years ago but I still remember it quite well. If you're into fashion and love reading I recommend you should read this book at least once.

Book Blurb
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! Armani! Versace!" at every turn, a world populated by impossibly thin, heart-wrenchingly stylish women and beautiful men clad in fine-ribbed turtlenecks and tight leather pants that show off their lifelong dedication to the gym. With breathtaking ease, Miranda can turn each and every one of these hip sophisticates into a scared, whimpering child.
THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA gives a rich and hilarious new meaning to complaints about “The Boss from Hell.” Narrated in Andrea’s smart, refreshingly disarming voice, it traces a deep, dark, devilish view of life at the top only hinted at in gossip columns and over Cosmopolitans at the trendiest cocktail parties. From sending the latest, not-yet-in-stores Harry Potter to Miranda’s children in Paris by private jet, to locating an unnamed antique store where Miranda had at some point admired a vintage dresser, to serving lattes to Miranda at precisely the piping hot temperature she prefers, Andrea is sorely tested each and every day—and often late into the night with orders barked over the phone. She puts up with it all by keeping her eyes on the prize: a recommendation from Miranda that will get Andrea a top job at any magazine of her choosing. As things escalate from the merely unacceptable to the downright outrageous, however, Andrea begins to realize that the job a million girls would die for may just kill her. And even if she survives, she has to decide whether or not the job is worth the price of her soul.

The Devil Wears Prada is the novel by Lauren Weisberger. This book is about a young woman named Andrea Sachs who moves to New York city with her best friend Lilly. Andrea hopes to find a career in publishing house. She'll be close to the dream of working in The New Yorkers if she can get a job and survive the job of being the junior assistant to the editor in chief of the fashion magazine Runway. Although she knows very little about fashion world everyone tells her that million girls would die for the job. Because of the crazy job, her relationship with her boy friend Alex is getting complicated and there is nothing left of her personal life. No matters what kind of work it is if her manager asks her to do it, she has to deliver it irrespective of Andrea's personal schedule. She nearly survives a year but at the end, she cannot handle her temper and quits the job that every girl desires. She works on short fiction and finances her unemployment with profits made from reselling her designer clothing provided for her magazine job.
