I am so glad I saw the musical before I read this book. I don't think I would have gone to see it if I had read the book first.

There wasn't one thing I really liked about this book. I think it boils down to it being a story about a woman that was written by a man. I think a female author could have given Elphaba's story some real feeling and emotion.

I know a lot of people loved this book, but it was a chore to finish. :thumbdown

    I'm with you. I didn't even finish the book, I just couldn't get into it. But I LOVED the show. Go figure

    I've had a copy of the novel since 1998 and have tried to read it three times over the years. Just can't get into it. People tell me that it takes a bit for it to get going but once it does, it's wonderful.

    I'm also one of those people that thought the musical was "meh." I'm glad it's popular but I can take it or leave it.
