    Gregory Maguire's Wicked Years series became national best sellers and the basis for a hit Tony-winning Broadway musical. Now, Maguire returns with the final installment in his transformative work, a thrilling and compulsively readable saga in which the fate of Oz is decided at last.

    Story
    What did you love best about Out of Oz?

    I feel that it's a fitting end to the Wicked Years. It wraps things up nicely, and the author answers some questions that seem to arise. Gregory adds some pretty wicked humor at the right times to give a good chuckle. Like wise, if you've fallen in love with any of the characters you'll experience tragedy as well. Most of all I love how the author re-wrote the world of Oz so that you find out that the Wizard of Oz may not have been everything youve known it to be.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Oh, there's so much. I guess, how attracted I got to some of the characters, and how much I detested some others.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Grandma Beaver was pretty great.


    Any additional comments?

    I agree with many of the other listeners who have listened to Out Of Ozz and the earlier books. These books aren't for everyone. At times Gregory seems to just ramble on and you begin to wonder what he's getting at. There's a few things I would like to point out with The Wicked Years. To start with, this is not a series for your young daughter. If you watched the musical and then decided to read the book, Wicked, be aware that this series was written with a mature audience in mind.

    This is a very introspective series. As you listen ( or read) you can somewhat see the author's own philosophies and questions that he's writing into his book. You can take it at face value of whats going on in the story or you can also follow his thought trains. He tends to derail sometimes and play around with some ideas. I think this is why many may not appreciate it. It's also not a book/ or series for people who think that every story needs to end on a positive note. As I said its introspective and I feel the author writes his own thoughts on life into the series.
