  • Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West

    Heralded as an instant classic of fantasy literature, Maguire has written a wonderfully imaginative retelling of The Wizard of Oz told from the Wicked Witch's point of view. More than just a fairy tale for adults, Wicked is a meditation on the nature of good and evil.

    "Very Intresting"
    Overall

    I liked it but I think somewhere along the way I missed the point other than we are all people and we all have our own problems

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you ever thought history was boring, David McCullough’s performance of his fascinating book will change your mind. In this stirring audiobook, McCullough tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence, when the whole American cause was riding on their success.

    Mark says: "Front Seat on History"
    "Really good book"
    Overall

    After listening to this book it is amazing that there is an America at all , a shift in the wind , rain or fog , could have killed the whole deal. Amazing

    You probably think you know a lot about the human body. The reality is that most of us know very little about this miraculous, scientific, and artistic system of anatomy. When it comes to your longevity and quality of life, understanding your internal systems gives you the power, authority, and ability to live a healthier, younger, and better life.

    It was intresting but repetative , it didn't have anything I really didn't have some idea about already

    This is a nice listen short quick. I was disappointed though that it was not the book. It is the audio from a PBS Special and Exerpts from the book. I thought I'd be getting the whole book.
