I really didn't care for this book. It was dark but there were some sections that were rather comical. For the most part it seemed to drone on where the author tried very hard to make it interesting but was unsuccessful. It contained too much political nonsense for me and I guess I just expected too much from it. I can't believe there was so much hype over it. Only in the last 10 pages or so of the entire book, where everything finally comes to climax, did it make sense... It is true though, I probably won't look at the Wizard of Oz in the same light again.

I have tickets to see the play, which I hear is totally different from the book. So, I'll be back and to give my review of the play as a comparison.

11/25/09: Play was excellent! Light, fun and quirky. Went with BJ531, we had fantastic seats!
