I totally stole this concept from Bella over at the (for now discontinued) blog Obsessed. Her 70 word reviews are a crack up so I am having a go at it myself.
This week I am revisiting old friends and doing 50 word reviews of 3 Gregory Maguire books which I found in a box the other day (not enough shelf space in my house.)
So here we go...
This book is apparently hated by the masses. Everyone loves the musical but I am the only one on the planet who fell in love with the book!
It’s been years since I read it, but I still feel overwhelming compassion towards Elphaba every time I think of this book.
Confessions of an Ugly Step Sister -
While I didn’t feel as drawn to this story as I did Wicked (I do have a minor obsession with anything Oz) the characters were probably better developed throughout this book. Not a must read, but readable all the same if your inclined to the tale of Cinderella.
Mirror Mirror -
Snow White? Snow White? Where for art thou Snow White? This was particularly hard to read. Characters seemed to lack motivation in their actions and this retelling didn’t keep me interested the way the other two did.You wont find me snuggling with this one in bed any time soon.
Phhhew, that was harder than it looks. Until next time... Happy reading bloggers!
