Rachel Hi Jen, Thanks for the good advice, I've been debating on this one and now I know not to bother. I appreciate these kinds of reviews, it saves me time!!

Frankenfeld Jen, you put into words exactly how I felt about this stupid book. The musical was much better.

I couldn't connect to anything about this book. Nothing made sense. What was purpose of that elephant scene, anyway?

Sofia I agree. I kept waiting and waiting for something meaningful. Then nothing. Bucket of water and it's over.

Deanna I got all the way through 3 chapters and decided that life was too short to waste on this book.

Ramona Flowers Sadly I discovered this the hard way.. At least it looks pretty green on my bookshelf. The edition is pretty but, the complements only get this far.

Allison James I strongly disagree. I loved this book. Youre right about the play and book being very different. The play was made for idiots, the book was written to challenge minds. Don't say a book was boring if you are not the type of person who likes being challenged when you're reading a book! And I read this when I was... hmm around 19/20... its perfectly fine to read if you're a teenager. Elphaba was a character with passion and strife and yearnings! She was a martyr and worked against dictatorship. It had all elements of mystery and thriller and political intrigue. I also liked all of Maguire's follow up books to this.
