Gregory Maguire

Anybody read Wicked? Awesome book. Then I read Son of a Witch, and thouroughly enjoyed it.

Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, not so much, but OK.

Lost, much better than Confessions, but still not up to the expectations after Wicked.

Just started Mirror, Mirror...

Nope. My wife read it, though. :mrgreen:

Just finished the third of the series after Wicked and Son of a Witch, A Lion Among Men. Great series. The politics of Loyal Oz and The Free State of Munchkinland is a trip.

If you watch the play/read the book, you realize that the ones you thought were the good guys are not in fact the good guys. Kind of like all the Obama voters are realizing right now. :mrgreen:

[font=Comic Sans MS]Never read the books. But I have an ugly step-sister, part Italian has the uni-brow thing going. She went to Europe for a graduation gift (1971), came back smelling. Never used deodorant or shaved her pits againImage. Real pride of the family.[/font]
