This book is definetly different from the movie, which I liked... The only big problem that I had with it was the narrator. She sounded really dull and monotonous and was putting me to sleep. However, once I got past her narration I was able to enjoy the story... Also, the ending could have been better... I liked the movie ending tons better...
Saw the movie first, maybe influenced how i felt about the book but I was expecting more excitement from the book, both in context and in the narrator's voice that I didn't get. Liked the storyline overall, just didn't have enough umph for me.
This book was okay, much better than the movie. I think it would have been better with a more exciting narrator!
I couldn't quit listening to this book. The characters and situations are so realistic. I think this one is more a memoir than fiction. I do recommend it.
Really enjoyed this book - it was funny & gave a great insight into the shallow world of high fashion. Good escape from one's everyday life in small cities not consumed with the latest Prada outfit or next haute fashion party. Hilliarious.
This book was ok. The readers voice was very monotone. I watched the movie first. I must say the movie was 10 times better.
Very disappointing! I thought it was to be funny & I saw nothing funny about the poor girl who had to put up with all of that. Waste of time. find something else.
Disappointed in the reading, all of the characters had the same bored, monotone voice.
In this book, many derogatory remarks about individuals with low incomes and high incomes. Really, no balance for positive remarks is able with the inferiority between the classes. I am a business student; I was not satisfied with how either the protagonist or the antagonist acted within the book. Truly, women are not slaves for $32,000 a year or for the ability of progression to a better job. No person is a master of another individual in how Miranda continued daily to antagonize Andrea. However, Miranda worked for her position but needs to keep herself in prospective. Truly, the situation relayed in the contents of the book happens on a daily basis with many organizations. The facts are based on low paying wages almost enslave the employee just like Andrea. I had to wonder with the signification of the author having the name Miranda with "m" as in manager. Otherwise, the book has everything true about today's society.
The book is definitely better than the movie. The narrator made it worth listening to. not the most believable storyline. Why would this inexperienced girl EVER be hired to do this job? And would anyone work for such a witch? I guess maybe there are some people out there hungry enough to do it. But all I kept thinking was "Why are you still working there?" No amount of money could make me run my personal life into the ground. I guess it was entertaining. But the movie was even more unbelievable.
