This has got to be one of the most creative writing ideas and one of the most creatively written stories I've ever seen. I only read it because my sister bullied me into it. I thought what most people must think: Wizard of Oz yeah whatever I know that story not interested... but 10 pages in and I couldn't put it down. It's NOT the same story, AT ALL. It's amazing. It's a terrific book and I highly recommend it to anyone! The sequel too.

I'm a huge Wizard of Oz fan, so I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. Sooooo incredibly dull. YAWN.

A rather dark, disturbing re-imagining of Oz.
