Review on: The Devil Wears Prada
It was a very beautiful book, a far cry from the plot of the movie version. It was chic, fashionable and gave a very good insight on how people in New York, or in the fashion industry might be living. Aside from that, the book was great because it gave very detailed details on even the small things, such as clothes or venues or events that took place in the story.
I think that the only problem with the book is that due to the meticulous detail given to explaining everything, some parts of the book can get a tad bit boring, especially if all that’s being talked about are simply explanations to very simple matters within the story. Also, if one is not familiar with some fashion terms, there may be some difficulty in understanding what the author is talking about.
Also, despite the fact that there are similarities between that and the movie version, there are a lot more differences than there are similarities. The movie of course had it’s visual pros as compared to the book, because you can see how beautiful and astonishing the fashion world really is. Yet, I would much rather prefer the book because it gave the viewer a more in-depth look into the fashion world that the main character was living in, and it gave a much more detailed explanation without leaving the reader hanging.
Of course as in all movie adaptations, there are many things that have to be cropped out to save on money and time. This is why I usually prefer reading the books first before I watch the movie. And the reason why I usually prefer the book to the movie adaptations.
