Wicked continues October 29, 2008

Posted by fetzthechemist in Uncategorized.

I just ordered the new book A Lion Among Men by Gregory Maguire. It is the third book in his Oz variants, following Wicked and Son of a Witch. Those tell a very different spin on the land created by L. Frank Baum. I was so captivated by Maguire’s angles that I read all sixteen of Baum’s original Oz books. Baum creates a sunny, cheery world where good always triumphs. Maguire’s are darker and more real by miles than Baum’s fairy tale world. It is a feudal, medieval society. I really anticipate reading this new one.
