    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.

    "Not What I Expected - Didn't Like This Book"
    Overall

    I knew I would never get to see the play and I liked the premise of the "wicked witch who was really just misunderstood," but this book never delivered on my expectations. It is wierd and made me feel like I wasn't following the story. It felt like the same characters were being reintroduced in many different (unrelated) story lines without feeling like any of the stories revealed their arc or reached a conclusion. I love science fiction and am not squemish about sexual content. I didn't like this book because it wasn't well told, not because the content offended me. Don't waste your money. I'm sorry I wasted mine. I would give it zero stars if I could.
