::: Wicked (Maguire)

Jeez, talk about depressing. I wasn't expecting it to be so dark. We saw the show in Chicago and I didn't realize how much they happied it up, so some of the events in the book were a bit of a shock, to say the least. It's well done and definitely an original retelling of the story from, as it were, the other side, but by the time I finished the book I felt kind of sick.

This is not the emotion I read for. I don't mind sad stories, or dark tales that don't have Happy Endings, but I do very much mind stories without a point, and so far as I could see Elphie's life didn't have a point, other than futility and grief and desperation. Bleah.
