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
