Beware! This is the first in a series ( )

DNF. I probably shouldn't give it a rating but the fact that I could not finish it says something about the book. The reader was overwrought at points in the story that didn't need it. ( )

This book is clearly designed to capitalize on the recent interest in the darker side of children's fairy tales. I found it to be a very engaging twist on Baum's original universe and characters. She does an excellent job of casting Glinda and Dorothy as Oz's mean girls and the Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Lion as their twisted sidekicks. I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of the series. ( )

I really liked Amy. She finds herself in an Oz that has been turned into a terrible place by a despotic Dorothy.
Amy is in over her head. Everyone tells her - "You shouldn't trust anyone - not even me."
This is the start of a series so of course things are not resolved.
Loved that this includes characters from the books that are not in the classic Judy Garland movie. ( )

I liked this book a lot. It definitely had problems and its wasn't my favorite book ever but I did really enjoy it. I loved the concept of having Dorothy return to OZ and seizing control. I loved the Oz books and the movie as a kid and the characters in this book brought back a lot of those memories. I didn't love the character of Amy at first. I didn't dislike her, but there were things she did and said that bothered me but as I read this book I came to really love her character. I think the author did a really good job of getting me to either love a character or hate a character and all the characters had really strong personalities. The only character I didn't love was Nox. I know some of this was part of his character, but he felt really insincere at times and I didn't care about him as much as the main character did which was a little frustrating. I really liked the world the author portrayed as well. Obviously some parts of the world were already established in the original Oz books but I liked the way the author adapted it. I also liked the way that the author explained the magic in Oz as well. There were some parts of the story where I felt like the pacing was a little off. At the beginning everything seemed to happen really, really fast. I never want too much exposition in stories but I would have liked a little more in this case. I know part of that is because Amy doesn't know any of what is going on so as the reader, we don't know whats going on but I felt like I was thrown into action right away and I could have used a bit of a breather just to figure out what I had just read. The ending had similar weird pacing. It didn't feel really like the ending of a book. The ending made it feel like I needed to read the next book right away. I guess that could be a good thing but I wish that this book had ended a little bit more neatly. I was also really confused by the fact that at the end (and I don't think this is a spoiler) the wizard told Amy that to defeat Dorothy she will need to take the Tin Woodman's heart, the Lion's courage, and the Scarecrow's brain like it was the major plot twist because 1) it is written on the back of the hardcover copy of the book and 2) it felt like to me that that bigger and more plot twisty things happened at the end. I honestly don't understand why they put that on the back of the book. Putting that on the back of the book made it seemed like the courage, brain, and heart stealing would happen in this book but really it wasn't even revealed to the main character that she needed to do those things until like the last 10 pages. I know that probably has nothing to do with the author but it was still very weird to me. besides those few things that are small mistakes in my mind I did really enjoy this book. I am very excited to read the next book in this series and see where Amy goes next and to see what happened to everyone that was in the order of the wicked. I would say if you liked the Oz stories or the concept of the books seemed interesting to you and you think you could ignore some weird pacing, I would recommend this book wholeheartedly. ( )

I first discovered I was trash three days before my ninth birthday - one year after my father lost his job and moved to Secaucus to live with a woman named Crystal and four years before my mother had the car accident, started taking pills, and began exclusively wearing bedroom slippers instead of normal shoes.
