The Devil Wears Prada

I started reading this book knowing that I was going to see the film but gave up halfway through and thought the time invested in finishing was probably not worth it. And I am so glad I did. The movie, and the book for that matter, are great examples of pure escapism which can be just what you need sometimes. It is an easy film to watch and an easy book to read which no doubts accounts for its popularity. The only trouble I had with the transition from book to film is that Meryl Streeps character in the film shows some even tiny signs of humanity under all those designer clothes. That aspect is lacking in the book and so I do think the film sold out a little to make the "Devil's" character a little more palatable. All in all, worth seeing but not worth queuing in line for!

I've seen this movie and Meryl Streeps is great...i find the story really great as being strict isn't because your boss is bad or something like that...they were just being professional and that they want you to be good also on your job...you'll definitely learned from them too...but there are job that will really take a lots of time still it'll be your decision...
