524-Ding! Dong! The Witch is DEAD!

It is official.  I have officially finished Wicked and am glad to be done.  I will say the last 60 pages were the easiest to read since I have seen The Wizard of Oz many times before.  The last 60 or so pages picked up from when Dorothy arrived to Oz, but it was told through Elphaba's perspective which was interesting.  After completing the book, I feel the Wicked Witch of the West has been misrepresented throughout the years.  I look forward to seeing the play, but never again plan on picking up the book or reading the other two books in the series.

Now on to read Disgrace which is counting as my Classic and the genre is Domestic Fiction.

  1. I'm glad you were able to get through it. I will say, as you've probably already heard, that the musical is nothing like the book. They managed to Disneyfy the story, which seems impossible, given the rather adult content of the book. I thought they made the musical plot a little weak, but the music is great.

    I hope you enjoy your next read better than you have Wicked.
