I tried super hard to finish reading this before the New Year, but it just wasn't as interesting as I thought it would be. And when a book doesn't keep your attention for the full 500+ pages, its hard to focus on it. This is suppose to be a story based on the life of the Wicked Witch of The West from the Wizard of Oz, and even though there are some good parts to it, mostly it was just boring. I was very confused on the year in which it was suppose to take place, seeing as how the author just kind of created his own time. And she didn't even really become evil up until she has her run in with Dorothy. Maybe the Broadway play is better.
