I'd heard very, very mixed reviews of this book, but absolutely loved the musical, and was intrigued by the book, so decided to give it a shot anyway. As the rating indicates, I found it fairly average - not as bad as I'd feared (low expectations always help), but not as good as I'd hoped either. The musical is definitely far superior, and they've changed the plot quite a bit, as the book is a lot darker and sadder. I still liked it through, and while I doubt I'll read more of Maguire's Oz books, I'm glad I've read this one.
