Books I’ll never read #4 – Wicked by Gregory Maguire

I will admit I started reading this book, and the imagery was very beautiful. But what I’ve read in terms of other reviews–how her sister has no arms for no apparent reason–really bothered me and shows that there may not be much reason to the prose’s plot. It is a thick book and the story did not seem promising, so I put it down. And then I watched the play. From what I can tell, the musical greatly improved upon the story line. I don’t want the book to ruin it for me.

Look on Wikipedia if you don’t believe me that there appears to be a huge difference.
