#Beatthebacklist The Devil Wears Prada; Lauren Weisberger

Hello Fellow Readers,

I finally completed a book from my Book to Movie Challenge, as well as a book off of Beat the Backlist challenge.

Title: The Devil Wears Prada
Author: Lauren Weisberger
Genre: Romance, Contemporary, Fiction
Publication Date: January 1st 2003
Rating: 1 out of 5 stars
Favorite Characters: N/A
Least Favorite Character: Andrea
Where to read: In your favorite boutique

I am just going to go ahead and say it. I did not like this book. I tried, I really did, but I just couldn't muster up anything. This mainly had to do with the main character. I really did not like her, to me she just seemed like a spoiled, whiny, 'intellectual', who felt she was too good for anything. so I really couldn't muster up any sympathy for her when she was put into a impossible situations by Miranda. 

The Character Andrea seems largely to wallow in her self to the point where she completely ignores the people in trouble who are close to her, until it's too late. I kept reading because I felt that I was missing something, something that other people were reading and were liking but it never did come. I was really disappointed and I wish I had kept this book off my challenge list. I'm still going to watch the movie and I'm crossing my fingers that it's better than the book. I won't write a comparison because I didn't like it enough to and I have better things to do with my time honestly. 

There's one thing I can say about the book as a positive, it does hold up well despite it being fourteen years old.
