“Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns” suffers from the same problem that plagued “The Devil Wears Prada” in 2003. Great characters are undermined by barely serviceable prose.

Synopsis

With brand-new scenes, The New York Times bestseller and sequel you’ve been waiting for—the follow-up to the #1 New York Times bestseller, The Devil Wears Prada!

Almost a decade has passed since Andy Sachs quit the job “a million girls would die for” working for Miranda Priestly at Runway magazine—a dream that turned out to be a nightmare. Andy and Emily, her former nemesis and co-assistant, have since joined forces to start a high end bridal magazine, The Plunge, which has quickly become required reading for the young and stylish. Now they get to call all the shots: Andy writes and travels to her heart’s content; Emily plans parties and secures advertising like a seasoned pro. Even better, Andy has met the love of her life. Max Harrison, scion of a storied media family, is confident, successful, and drop-dead gorgeous. Their wedding will be splashed across all the society pages as their friends and family gather to toast the glowing couple. Andy Sachs is on top of the world. But karma’s a bitch. The morning of her wedding, Andy can’t shake the past. And when she discovers a secret letter with crushing implications, her wedding-day jitters turn to cold dread. Andy realizes that nothing—not her husband, nor her beloved career—is as it seems. She never suspected that her efforts to build a bright new life would lead her back to the darkness she barely escaped ten years ago—and directly into the path of the devil herself...Featuring all new scenes with the villainess we love to hate (hate to love?), Miranda Priestly, Revenge Wears Prada in paperback is another publishing event!

The Devil is back…sort of. Not as fast-paced or exciting as the original, but diehard Prada fans will want to check it out.

Weisberger adds many plot elements that put Andy and her lifetyle in jeopardy...Andy's character is what drives the book, after all- this sequel is a fun summer read.

The reader is pulled into the glitz and glamour reminiscent of...and the movie on which it was based. Celebrity weddings in exotic locations with extravagant, luxurious details will provide Hollywood with another blockbuster movie.

But unfortunately this second outing reads less like haute couture and more like Nordstrom Rack. The reader is tempted to assume that Weisberger had dollar signs in her eyes, rather than inspiration, when she wrote it.

It happens sometimes that good characters happen to bad writers. Through no fault of her own, Weisberger is a pedestrian stylist and clumsy with plots. She simply does not have the skills to do justice to the fictional woman that Streep developed...

Dare I say it — Weisberger’s plotlines are frivolous? I don’t feel the impulse to run out and buy a book about the weal and woe of Manhattan’s uber-elite.
