If you want a more complex look into the land of OZ, THIS is the book that you soon get lost in. When I first read Wicked (the 1st in the series) I was amazed at the "heavy"topics of war, class war, and how everyone went from friends to bring faced with choosing sides like lines of morality, finding out who really is a friend or foe, to how much political& religious ideals soon tear people apart& just like our world...as you grow up, life becomes more complex than just running around in a fairy tale. Wicked will probably take you awhile to get "sucked in" but once you do you sure won't see that movie the same ever again.I lived the first, short of liked the 2nd, and fell right into this one,A Lion Among Men. Excited to read the 4th-Amy in Dallas
This whole series is so entertaining and smart. Its so creative how the author takes a well known fairy tale and turns it into an adult story involving political intrigue, romance, questions of childhood influences and other adult themes. I love the narrator, too. I don't think it is possible to read or listen to this book unless you have already heard the earlier ones. I did feel like the ending left something to be desired. I assume that the next book will bring the tale to a proper conclusion.
