    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.

    "Depressing and unlike the stage musical"
    Overall

    After seeing the musical on stage and being entralled with the story, I downloaded this book. Was very disappointed to find that the story lines are not the same. The stage play is uplifting overall, with friendship and love. The book is dark, depressing, with betrayal, infidelity, sadness and overall heaviness. I struggled throught the entire book, seeing spark of ideas that were taken into the stage play but no true common ground. Was really looking forward to this book and wish I had not read it. Will not recommend it to anyone. My disappointment is not in the reader, only the story.
