I love the Wicked series books for the fact that apparently they are NOTHING LIKE THE PLAY to the point that it angers fans of the stage version If you have time, read some of the one star reviews for the first book It s hilarious how mad these people get It s like they ve been betrayed, tricked into reading this divergence from their beloved baby Since the play is based on the book, shouldn t they be upset at the play for switching things up and I love the Wicked series books for the fact that apparently they are NOTHING LIKE THE PLAY to the point that it angers fans of the stage version If you have time, read some of the one star reviews for the first book It s hilarious how mad these people get It s like they ve been betrayed, tricked into reading this divergence from their beloved baby Since the play is based on the book, shouldn t they be upset at the play for switching things up and muddling their grey matter If they continued on reading the series which there s no way in hell they would no doubt this continuation of Maguire s alternative Oz history would furthe
I ve read a lot of terrible books, but this one possibly wins the distinction of being the worst book that I have ever read It was awful An explanation.I liked Wicked and I have read all of Maguire s other books Every time a new Maguire book came out, I read it and they seemed to progressively go downhill I didn t expect Son of s Witch to be very good, but I wanted to give it a chance.The only reason that this book was possibly written, is due to the success of the stage musical of Wicked I ve read a lot of terrible books, but this one possibly wins the distinction of being the worst book that I have ever read It was awful An explanation.I liked Wicked and I have read all of Maguire s other books Every time a new Maguire book came out, I read it and they seemed to progressi
I made a mistake reading this book I should have known from the ending of Wicked that it wouldn t get much better But I held out hope My hope was that well, maybe the ending I didn t get in Wicked, I ll get here, and maybe that was the plan all along, to fully revise things in a sequel, as that would bethe author s OWN and he d be less pigeon holed Alas, that wasn t the case.Again, 98% of this book is a great read But the two main problems I had with the first book are the problems I I made a mistake reading this book I should have known from the ending of Wicked that it wouldn t get much better But I held out hope My hope was that well, maybe the ending I didn t get in Wicked, I ll get here, and maybe that was the plan all along, to fully revise things in a sequel, as that would bethe author s OWN and he d be less pigeon holed Alas, that wasn t the case.Again, 98% of this book is a great read But the two main problems I had with the first book are the problems I have with this book
As much as I liked Wicked, I had an inkling I was going to like Son of a Witch even better, especially given the beginning, with the spate of senseless scrapings and the discovery of the unconscious boy, who turns out to be Liir, the book s protagonist and the potential son of the Wicked Witch of the West.The beginning was indeed good Engaging I especially enjoyed the brief time Liir spent with the Yellow Brick Road friends from The Wizard of Oz I m a huge WoO nut, but I didn t have any pro As much as I liked Wicked, I had an inkling I was going to like Son of a Witch even better, especially given the beginning, with the spate of senseless sc
Wicked kind of annoyed me from time to time inspite of the fact that I loved reading Elphaba s story If that book fell a little short then this book the sequel completely misses the mark Maguire did okay when he was writing on the basis of someone else s work but here on his own he flounders Whatever it was that did not sit well with me from Wicked is found tenfold in the pages of Son of a Witch At first I thought that it was just Maguire s take on bits of Baum s original Wicked kind of annoyed me from time to time inspite of the fact that I loved reading Elphaba s story If that book fell a little short then this book the sequel completely misses the mark Maguire did okay when he was writing on the basis of someone else s work but here on his own he flounders Whatever it was that did not sit well with me from Wicked is found tenfold in the pages of Son of a Witch At first I thought that it was just Maguire s take on bits of Baum s original sto
I m not sure why this has an average of 3.32 It s a great entertaining and thought provoking book Maybe I m prejudiced toward GM, but I loved it, and think it came to its inevitable conclusion Can t wait for the next which goes into Mother Yackle if anyone s following the series he read a bit at last year s Grub Street conference.I just looked at some of the other reviews and disagree on so many levels The kinship of Elphaba and Liir is demonstrated quite well through his behavior and to I m not sure why this has an average of 3.32 It s a great entertaining and thought provoking book Maybe I m prejudiced toward GM, but I loved i
This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I am angry at Gregory Maguire This will excuse the poor grammar and run on sentences that may follow Very angry Maguire writes books that are impossible to read as such, I opted to listen to Son of a Witch on tape after failing to get past the 1st few chapters onthan one occasion As it turns out, Maguire s books are equally difficult to listen to, especially when the audio reader is the author himself.Although I am now questioning my previous opinion, I had it in my mind that Wicked I am angry at Gregory Maguire This will exc
I really enjoyed Son of a Witch, despite the feeling that it s just an interlude in a larger story With Wicked, I had lots of preconceptions about the characters, and whilst I liked the slant on them that the book provided, I suppose it did get in the way a bit With Son of a Witch, I didn t have those same obstacles to get past.I enjoyed finding outabout Liir I felt he was shabbily treated in Wicked, so it w
