There is no comparison. This book takes the classic of Wizard of Oz and turns it on its ear, telling the story from the side of the
The narrartor did a good job, but I did not care for his voice/ tone quality. While he inflected it still felt monotone and made it easy for me to zone out while listening to the story rather than engaging me.

The story was too hard to follow

did not like it at all
I didn't think I would like a book being read to me but I was wrong :) It was great to be able to lie back and just listen.
The reading was well done.
There are many times in the book that I found myself laughing. Also, there are some pretty sad times :(
I highly recommend this book for any

Maybe another presenter?
The synopsis was interesting. The characters were least interesting. Maybe they were undeveloped?
I wouldn't cut a character. But I never became involved with the characters. I didn't care what happened next.
I love science fiction and fantasy. I was disappointed that I didn't like the book.
I really enjoyed the story and the narration. At first I thought it should have been narrated by a female but John McDonough did an amazing job and I could't really imagine hearing it from a female now.

I have heard him read many books. His sonorous rendition and shift in voice for characters is terrific.
Not particularly. These are not characters that are especially attractive.
Friends have not enjoyed this book as I did. The author's command of the language is exceptional. Some words he beats to death, like
Say something about yourself!
Leer was good, nice to be able to bring in a new character.
You couldn't tell the end of a chapter, the way it was broken up left me wondering if my iphone had shut off! Also, the performance seemed to have it's timing off, excited in parts that should have been morose, and just overall leaving it choppy.

Not sure I would like a movie version, but the musical I would like to see, as everyone who I have spoken to about the broadway version say that performance is much brighter.
Just finished this modern take on a classic tale...not sure I was too thrilled with it. From what I hear of the broadway show...this is not what I expected.

The story itself is fantastic, but the language used to tell it made it hard to keep up with and a difficult read.
