    I have a confession I wanted to read this book because I saw the Broadway show, and the idea of a Broadway show based on a book based on a movie based on a political satire intrigued me I heard the book and the show were quite different, so I wanted to see the difference.The biggest difference is that the show is good, and the book is not I don t want to be mean to the poor author Gregory

    I hated this book Maybe it was because I was expecting so much with all the hype, maybe because I thought the original idea was so great, whatever End result, I freaking hated this book This is a book that makes you want to sit down and re write it yourself because it is such a shame that such a great idea was so mishandled I loved the idea of delving into the witches and their past and see

    I love my physical edition of this novelwhile the reading experience wasn t as good as always thought that it would be MANY SHADES OF GREEN A thing that I got amazed when I started to label this book, in the process of my review, in my virtual shelves of Goodreads was how many different genres the novel touches Politics, Religion, Romance, Humor, Fantasy, Magic, Mystery and even Espionag

    Dostoyevsky meets Frank Baum This was not as much fun as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies maybe because it is revisionist than mash up, parody or spoof This is actually, strangely a very mature work but set in Oz and from the perspective of Elpheba the wicked witch But it was amusing, entertaining, thought provoking, head scratching, etc etc.Published 2 years before Harry Potter and 4 years befo

    This book as become increasingly popular, mostly due to the success of the musical by the same name the truth is however, its not very good There are many interesting and intriguing plotlines in the book, and you wait for them to be clerified, and expanded upon, but many never are many fantastic characters are introduced, and are hinted at playing an important roll later in the book. doesnt happe
