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

  • Wicked

    By Moosie55
    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

    By kittenring
    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.
  • Wickedly amazing!

    By Frostbite128
    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

    By Smosher98
    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

    By Holabacho
    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

    By TheyLovinTheCruuuz
    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.
  • Maps??

    By snitro
    Why can't we get the book which has the maps? Which is the other cover... Please make it available ... That would be great!
