Just started reading this book today - so far it's very interesting. Anyone else read it?

I'm glad someone is reading it - it's been on my list 'to read' for sometime now...I've read great reviews and hear it's quite a fun/interesting read. I seen it in Coles the other day, but have so many other books I'm going through that it's going to have to wait.

Man - reminds me I need to get to the library this week to get a card and check out their selection!!

I have this on my list of books to read - just picked it up on Friday night. I'll be sure to post a review on it when finished.

I hope it's good because I noticed the authour has four other books including one related to the evil stepmother in Snow White which intrigued me.

Just finished Wicked (finally!).... it was a good read. I really enjoyed reading someone else's take on the land of Oz.

Am looking forward to reading Son of Witch - which is the sequel to Wicked.

Read it and loved the story. I really connected with the character drawn with Elphaba.

I just finished Son of A Witch and didn't like it nearly as much.

I found it very hard to get into and didn't finish the book. I don't know if I wasn't in the right mindset (although don't ask me what kind I would need to be in!) to get into it...I ended up returning it to the library unread. Bleh. Will try again in a few months.

Don't feel bad Paella. I got halfway through it and started to find it dull - haven't touched it since. I will pick it back up at some point since I don't like to not finish a book but I'm in no rush. I've moved on to something else in the meantime.
