MY Favorite Book
By: Gregory Maguire.

"Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West"

That is my very favorite book on the entire planet ever of all time. Have any of you read it?

2. OK
I guess it counts. The book was pretty deep so I wonder how it was as a musical. Seems odd to me. Then again, West Side Story is pretty deep and my favorite movie and a musical too. I don't, as a rule, like musicals and yet some of my favorite movies are musicals.

8. I gave my book to my best friend.

She is a die-hard Wizard of Oz fan, so I'm sure that she will like it.

My favorite part of the book was the color photos of the musical.

9. She may
It does put a whole different spin on The Wizard of Oz...the Wizard is Evil in the book. Dorothy isn't. She is barely in it but the Wizard is Evil.

4. Yes
I really enjoyed it. I read "Son Of A Witch" as well, which wasn't as good imo. And just bought the wicked step sister one (can't remember exact title). I haven't read it yet.

7. It is My Favorite Book
Was "Son of a Witch" worth the read?
