Wicked - Gregory Maguire

  • Jan 16, 2013 · 7:15 PM
  • The Freeway Coffee House

Wicked - Gregory Maguire.  Laurie's selection

Gregory Maguire creates a fantasy world so rich and vivid that we will never look at Oz the same way again. Wicked is about a land where animals talk and strive to be treated like first-class citizens, Munchkinlanders seek the comfort of middle-class stability, and the Tin Man becomes a victim of domestic violence. And then there is the little green-skinned girl named Elphaba, who will grow up to become the infamous Wicked Witch of the West, a smart, prickly, and misunderstood creature who challenges all our preconceived notions about the nature of good and evil.

    I'm plodding through this, second kick at the can. Absolutely loved it the first time several years ago and I'm still intrigued, perhaps more so, now.

    I LOVE this book, but unfortunately the flu has hit our home hard. We just found out that it is not an airborne virus but one that spreads through contact. I can't wait to read the feedback from this meetup! I hope you all enjoyed the book as much as I had. It is truly a literary treasure!
    Sass :)
