The Devil Wears Prada
Thus starts the phase where she constantly takes order and works like a slave. Miranda is portrayed as a woman who never cares about anything around her but just herself. I mean her spending spree is such that it would cost a major portion of Elias Clarks accounts. But yet Miranda's boss has taken no means of atleast trying to make her understand and he is only one she very readily accomodates.
Andrea often complains about her work to her family and friends but none (even me) seem to understand that her job was indeed very demanding that she cannot spare a minute for her own food, let alone chit chat. Miranda constantly abuses, belittles and tortures her and yet she bears them so that she can get a better career elsewhere. I do not understand how can anyone in a standard organisation treat another employee so bad (I do understand there are all types of bosses but Miranda was just too wicked), just because they were famous and had power.
I think Andrea should have done the last part way ahead and moved on. The whole drama was becoming more and more boring after half the book. I liked the film better though there have been some major differences between them. But the crux was the same and the director had made a better version of the novel. And her relationship with her boyfriend, friends or family is totally indepth in the book and different. I skipped some paragraph about the clothes, the designer labels or the various types of makeups (seriously I had never seen them) and that was the only place I could relate with Andrea. We both were completely lost in sense of fashion. I was totally disappointed with the book and the author.
