About this item

When Dorothy triumphed over the Wicked Witch of the West in L. Frank Baum's classic tale, we heard only her side of the story. But what about her arch-nemesis, the mysterious witch? Where did she come from? How did she become so wicked? And what is the true nature of evil?

Gregory Maguire creates a fantasy world so rich and vivid that we will never look at Oz the same way again. Wicked is about a land where animals talk and strive to be treated like first-class citizens, Munchkinlanders seek the comfort of middle-class stability and the Tin Man becomes a victim of domestic violence. And then there is the little green-skinned girl named Elphaba, who will grow up to be the infamous Wicked Witch of the West, a smart, prickly and misunderstood creature who challenges all our preconceived notions about the nature of good and evil.

I must admit, I am not one for jumping on the bandwagon when something gets rave reviews. I waited a long time before comming back to this book and I must say that I wish I read it sooner. It is a great read. Easy read, done in 3 days. Story sucks you in and does not let go.

I'm about a third of the way through the book and it is wonderful. I saw the musical Wicked first and am now reading the book. The stories are similar but the book is much more gritty. Highly recommend it for a great read.
