Angela Really? You only give this a 3? I liked it a lot, as I recall. I read it several years ago, but I recall it was quite inventive.

Cara I wanted to like it so much more than I did. I thought he did do a great job of creating Oz as a complicated, layered society full of interesting characters. It didn't mesh with the original as much I had hoped, and that kind of thing BUGS me. I also didn't feel like continuing with the sequels - I was quite done with his world at the end of Wicked. I'd see the Broadway play.

Angela I never read Wizard of Oz, and I hadn't seen it in a while. Didn't bug me. But I did read one of the sequels and it didn't grab me. Right now I'm struggling through the end of Zelda. Maybe she'll be catatonic in the last 8 years of her life and it will be a quick last chapter.
