Kp Wait, really? But they made a musical out of this.
Five minutes ago, I was in the National Bookstore and *almost* bought this book for my plane ride home. Its sequel is out.


I bought Anansi Boys, instead.

What was wrong with this book? You avid little reader; you'll never stop, will you?

Mary The play and the book are completely different, think Cinderella and the evil step-sisters different. If I could wipe out my memory of this book, other than the fact I hated it, I would.

This will probably just make you want to read it and find out for yourself if it's really so terrible, but don't. Haha! :) Your choice seems much better and more satisfying. No one in our book club liked Wicked (the book), but I really want to see the play.
