I read the book years ago. I found this to be different than I remembered and different from the movie versions. It is a good listen and I would recommend it for people interested in what we viewed the aftermath of WWIII ti be like from a 1960's perspective.
Anne Hathaway does a very good job of reading and performing the story. It may be a little too dark for very young children. However for older children and adults it offers a very good listen. However, don't expect the storyline from the movie or even from Maguire's WICKED book, if you do you will be disappointed. The characters you know are all there but they are different and the plot is different. I would recommend the story to anyone who want's a different take on the Wizard of Oz story.
A different kind of story in that it takes places after most of the World War is finished. The author interviews various people that took part in the war and the war effort. The actors who portray the people being interviewed are very good at interpreting the characters they are asked to portray. A movie is being filmed and I will be most interested in how they take what is basically interviews and weave them into a coherent film. I have listened to it twice and will most likely listen to it again.
