Wicked

by

I tried to like Wicked, but I failed. I kept going, thinking it would get better, but it didn’t. The idea was intriguing, the Wizard of Oz story from the side of the (not so) Wicked Witch of the West. In reality, very little of the book is about that and, while populated with very novel and interesting ideas, I found it ultimately just strange and unfulfilling.

It’s just a mess of stories, largely following two sisters, one who is green and allergic to water and one with no arms. If that didn’t make it hard enough to empathise, the book is filled with more unsympathetic and disgusting characters.

Trust me, just avoid it.
