Wicked Gregory Maguire Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
When Dorothy triumphed over the Wicked Witch of the West in L. Frank Baum's classic tale, we heard only her side of the story. But what about her arch-nemesis, the mysterious Witch? Where did she come from? How did she become so wicked?
Gregory Maguire has created a fantasy world so rich and vivid that we will never look at Oz the same way again.

User reviews about this book
Beyond perfection as good as the musical
I could not put it down! I could feel all the emotion felt. Made my heart pound. Cried. Loved the wicked witch. Only wish Fierro and Elphaba were together in the end. I saw the WICKED play this year for the first time. Bought the musical show album. I listen driving to work daily. I always loved the Wizard of Oz growing up since 1960. Thank you for the books . Cannot wait to start on SON OF A WITCH...

i love wicked the musical and i like this book a little bit worse than wicked the musical
Didn't live up to the hype
This book is not at all what I expected from growing to love the play. The characters all meet a very unhappy end. I like something happy to look forward to in a novel and this book didn't provide that for me. The language in which Maguire writes can be hard to follow at times. The story was definitely very inventive and had a lot going on, but it was too political for my taste. I wouldn't really recommend this book. It was alright, not great and not horrible, if that makes sense.
This is simply the best book I've ever read... Not as kid friendly as the musical, and no map, but still amazing!
I thought it was the best book ever
My new favorite book
This book is amazing! I'll never be able to watch "Wizard of Oz" the same way again.
Wicked: interesting, but not meant for young children
Wicked shows the interesting point of elphaba(AKA the wicked witch of the west ) and maguires view on oz. I enjoyed this book, but didn't think it was 5 star worthy, because of some unneeded sexual content and strong language.
It was ok
I honestly hated how hard it was for me to get the whole picture. The language was annoying. I used the dictionary a lot during reading this. I ended up using the spark notes to understand everything. Idk... To each is own.
Why can't we get the book which has the maps? Which is the other cover... Please make it available ... That would be great!
