Review of "Wicked - Gregory Maguire"
In my opinion, Wicked is a diverse novel, casting a light overthe morals of right and wrong and what it means to be good or wicked. The book has a stong plot, although I would nt reccomend it to younger readers. At some points in the novel( near the middle), the readibility starts to falter, and you are left with underdiscribed characters, where you need to make the rest of the characters background and what they look like by yourself. Saying that though, wicked is a gripping, medium paced read, and is a classic everyone must read. The story is strong in this novel, and after you have tread it, you are left wanting to read it over and over again. After reading the last chapter, the words of the author are left imprinted in your head for months. A Must read

Taking readers past the yellow brick road and into a phantasmagoric world rich with imagination and allegory, Gregory Maguire just might change the reputation of one of the most sinister characters in literature.
