OMG yeah he must, I never thought of that. Does anyone know where he lives?... haha!

I think I will read the whole book first.. probably a couple of times and then I will listen to the audio. That is if I can afford it!

need to find out where he lives hummm how to find out.
I have preordered my audios and they will probably come about three days after the release which means i can read the book at least once before they arrive which is good.

I read the book Wicked last summer and I absolutely LOVED it. I don't usually get into stories like this but I read it like five times over. By far my favorite book :D

I was also thrilled when I got "Son of a Witch" for christmas. It was a decent continuation, though the end makes me sooo want to read a continuation!

The last sentence just forces Gregory Maguire to write another book continuing this story. I'd highly recomend this book to anyone who liked the first book.

Now from the book to the musical, story-wise I was a little disappointed... Don't get me wrong, I'm now obsessing over the musical rather than the book, and I know that they had to change these things, but I just sort of wished things wern't so different.

I'm reading the book now, i must admit i get slightly angy at some parts cuz it ruins itfor me lol! like nessa having no arms....hmmm :| and other little things, but now ive overcome that and am really enjoying the book! i sort of see it as a different story but more a different way of looking at it, i agree with what people have said before about the book being very realist and the musical being...a more fluffy, happy ending, but i like it that way so i guess im not a realist at heart lol. im the type of person who thinks 'oh well it'll all work out in the end' hehe.
so yea.. the book is great but i enjoyed the musical a lot more, and it touched me more than the book has..
i think the musical creates more sympathy for elphaba
that is all :)

yea i agree, i just prefer the show myself. i think its because the soundtrack just really adds to the magic, and thats somehting the book doesnt have, but the book has its own greatness :)
