I am so sad about my reaction to this book. It is supposed to be such a good book, and I did not like it at all! It just did not attact me to it. If anything, I found it really boring. There was not a lot of action in it. Yes, it was interesting to see how the characters we know from The Wizard of Oz developed, but other than that I find it a terrible book. I am trying to find something good to say about it, and I suppose he writes good descriptions, the book just seemed to be all about description. I have read other Maguire books and enjoyed them, just for some reason I could not get into this one. It's a sad thing to happen, but just goes to show you the greatest books in the world can be the worst to some people. I just thought I would say a bit, it is hard for me to write a review on a bad book short of saying that I found that nothing was happening, I was forever bored and one page seemed to take a year to read. I tried and tried to get into it, hoping that each new chapter would bring something to get me interested, and it did not. I hate starting out the new year with two lousy books. I am usually good at picking books I will like.



I felt exactly the same way: I expected to love it. I mean, what a great idea! What a premise!

But....meh. If you can believe this, I read almost all the way to the end, but I didn't read the part when Dorothy arrives. (Unbelievable, isn't it?) I put it down a year and a half ago and never picked it back up.

And that green witch and blue man monkey sex...weird.

Yeah, it was a really strange book. I am glad to hear other people didn't like it, because I keep hearing from the people that did! Now I don't feel so weird.

Well, everyone likes different things. I'd personally give it 4.5/5.

About Me

My photo
Since I was a little girl I have been fascinated with books. Early photos show me with a book in hand, even if it was not exactly my reading level... My first word was a made-up word meaning 'book', actually. I suppose I had my priorities at an early age... Over the years my interest in books has become one of the defining features of who I am as a person. You can probably call me a bookworm. While I have other interests, reading will always be the one I talk about the most, even if I am not focusing on it as much as I used to.
