Recensioner

Been wanting to read this one for a while, because I absolutely loved the Broadway musical, and I'm super excited for the movies to come out, and it was just as good as I thought it would be! An amazing read and I can't wait to read the rest of the series!

I loved the fresh perspective. The book was a bit too political for my preference, but I did enjoy it. Even though I knew Elphaba would die in the end, it was still devastating. She was so *interesting*.

Read on audio. After seeing the trailer for the new Wicked movie coming out, I thought I'd pick this up for a reread. Its a good take on what the lives of the Witches of Oz (North, East and West) were like before what we know from the original. I had forgotten how much this overlaps with Dorothy and the original Wizard of Oz. Its a very good read. I'll probably get to the other 3 in the series, eventually.

I was drawn to the art on the book cover, combined with the title, not even realizing I’d just listened to something else by the same author. The author is thoroughly versed in the fairy tales of many countries, myths, folk lore, Bible stories, classical ballet stories, and doubtless more, to where I am not familiar with some of the references made—and so am not always sure when an old story is being intertwined, and when something is entirely original. For example, I have no idea if any of the fairy tales that inspired this one might have been aimed at an adult audience and could have been rated R for sexual content, had such ratings existed, like this one is. Hiddensee is the name of a place, but also seems to allude to the idea that fairy tales are fraught with psychological mysteries and hidden meanings, like this one is. 😊
Great narration, by the way, by Steven Crossley.
