Wicked The Life And Times Of The Wicked Witch Of The West By Gregory Maguire

Wicked The Life And Times Of The Wicked Witch Of The West By Gregory Maguire

Rich, detailed, though-provoking and a reminder that not everything is always as it seems. I loved how allegorical the book was, the power struggle emulates many instances in history, namely the battle between King John and the Pope. Elphie was a great character, complex and yet by the end you were pulling for her to somehow alter the ending of the much beloved "Wizard of Oz" (which now I watch and think "Dorothy, you skank.") My favorite of Maguire's books.
