Finally finished, and if you asked me to summarize it for you, I'd say something like "um, the maybe son of Elpheba goes on a quest and stuff, and there are dragons and a princess elephant thing, and doctors. It's good!" It was pretty entertaining, though I have NO IDEA what actually happened. I think it was one giant quest with lots of little scenes. If I got distracted while driving, I didn't bother re-listening. It's not really that kind of story.


It's funny how some books just need to find you at the right time. Apparently I've tried to read this twice, to no avail. This time, I'm enchanted so far.


My mind is swimming from work related stress, so I can't give this the attention it deserves. Very interesting, as was Wicked. Just not the right time.
