Okay, I have not seen the musical but can only conclude that a lot must have been omitted or changed to achieve a broadway hit. This book is just sort of weird and a little boring. I was more or less relieved when it was done.
My sister saw the play and loved it. So I was excited to get this in audiobook. And though it had lots of promise, I haven't been able to finish it. It is just too crass and painfully slow.

I was surprised. I knew about the book for years and also was aware of the musical --haven't seen the musical yet, but the story is pretty good. The audio is excellent and the story line is creative and entertaining. It's a good purchase and even a better credit worthy choice.
I'm in love with her! I see so much of me in her. I've still about 20 minutes until the end of the book, and even though I know how the story ends according to the movie, I'm hoping for a surprise twist wherein the Witch comes out victorious!
This book had me hooked from go.
It a look a little while to get into the style of the book and then it was quite good for a while. It is WAY too long, though and I never did finish it. It started to move too slowly.
This is the perfect sort of tale for an audiobook! I was sad when it ended. The characters, setting, and writing are all inventive and engaging. Perfect for a long trip with friends and family -- who doesn't love The Wizard of Oz?
I found this "grown-up" tale of the Wizard Of Oz characters very engrossing.Now I can't wait to see the play!
Thanks for this great first of a three part book download. The narrator has a great variety of voices and tells the story well.
