Well, over the weekend I officially choked down over 100 pages of this "wonderful" book. I am currently on page 260 of 400 and am hoping to complete it by our class on Thursday. Is it getting better? Yes and No. I have finally found a story line I can follow even though at each new section of the book it has jumped years ahead and I spend the next few pages trying to figure out what is going on. Is it still wierd strange crude and just plain gross at parts---yes. As I have described it to my friends, it is porn. I am all about the hot and steamy romance novels that I freely admit to reading. However, this is not HUMAN! These are Wizard of Oz characters and well, I am sorry, but it is just not cool. Not too keen on the way it is talked about either...very vulgar.
Currently, the Wicked Witch is not yet Wicked or even known as a witch, I think. I could be missing some things since I tend to doze off every 10 pages or so....I could put it down right now and never read another page and be totally ok with that.
But, I will finish it just so I can say I did. From what I hear the play is awesome and leaves out the parts that I do not like. So, I will look forward to that.
This now ends my status report on the hardest book I have ever forced myself to read.....
Until next time...Happy reading, Folks!
