Devil Wears Prada, T (Lib)(CD)

Devil Wears Prada, T (Lib)(CD) - Lauren Weisberger, Bernadette Dunne Actual rating: 3.5 stars

Initial thoughts: I watched the movie years ago when it came out, so I only remembered the overarching storyline. Since I did find the movie entertaining, I expected the same of the book. I was not disappointed. The entertainment value was there, which was elevated by Bernadette Dunne's narration. Given that I graduated from university only a year ago, I could definitely relate to Andrea's plight of finding a job, and then constantly overworking herself, wondering if it'll be worth it in a bid to pursue her goals. Occasionally though, I thought that the plot was driven thin and so was a tad repetitive. In any case, I think the book is good for anyone looking to read about someone in their 20s looking to break into the job market.
