it was ok
Read in August, 2012

Maybe i was too novice, but half the time i felt really lost reading this book.

In the beginning i had totally no idea what this book was about. Maybe i was trying too hard to link it up with 'The Wizard of The Oz', because this book is like on its own world on its own.

Well from my limited understanding of this book, it is about the life story of the Wicked Witch of the West, Elphaba. It is a darn sad story if u ask me. A very messed up life with messy connections (however direct or indirect) which somehow contributes in their small little ways in messing her life up. And this book made The Wizard of The Oz seemed like a lie.
