So, anyway, what did we all think of Wicked? If you have a thumb to the back of the book there's a reader's guide which may be of use :) I thought it was really excellent - I enjoyed the way that Oz was suddenly this fully fleshed out political machine of a country, and elements from the original stories were blended in really cleverly. I did think it was a bit overloaded with symbols and portents though. Like the scene at the philosophy club with the Tiger. It just seemed that was thrown in to unsettle the reader rather than to advance any plot or character development.
Thoughts anyone? :D
