God have mercy, I finally finished this horrific book Honestly, it wasn t so bad, just tedious and repetitive I picked it because a the movie was coming out and b I recognized the title as a popular book, albeit a couple years ago The premise to the book is that a young woman takes a Junior Assistant position at a high fashion magazine and the She Devil who runs the show The movie had the same premise, but that s practically where the similarities endAndrea Sachs I read this a few years ago, and still remember what a rollicking good ride it was I was mesmerized by the horror It was like watching a train wreck in slow motion In a good way, that is I m sure there s a good way to watch a train wreck if we think about it long enough In the interest of full disclosure, I spent several years in what we shall charitably call the fashion industry So young, insecure, underpaid, working for creative tyrants, living on coffee and celery, This is one of the only books I have ever read in my entire life where the film actually improved my perception It took me about three years to read this, and the only reason I ever finished it was because everyone else seemed to think it was so great, I thought I must be missing something I am generally bothered by books and films wherein the main character is offered an incredible opportunity, but because they are worried they are sacrificing themselves, they toss it out the window I am wi This is one of the only books I have ever read in my entire life where the film actually improved my perception It took me about three years
