Wieso?Weshalb?Warum? - aktiv-Heft Pflanzen hIave a confession I wanted to read this book because I saw the Broadway show and the idea of a Broadway show based on a book based on a movie based on a political satire intrigued me I Atlante dello spazio. Le mappe dell'universo e oltre heard the book and the show were uite different so I wanted to see the differenceThe biggest difference is that the show is good and the book is not I don t want to be mean to the poor author Gregory Maguire whoas made a fortune and franchise from this book and ones like it but it s absolutely terrible It s a fantastic idea mind you but the execution is embarrassingly badOftentimes I read a book and see ways I could never be a writer the word choice the cadence the picture and world and emotions the author paints with language the distance between my ability to write a little song and oh MozartThis book The Power Meter Handbook: A User's Guide for Cyclists and Triathletes howeverad me thinking differently It Ten Boys Who Didn't Give in: Inspiring stories of martyrs (Lightkeepers) had me thinking um dude I could totally do that The characters are flat and stereotypical the plot is jumpy and contrived the dialogue is ridiculous the tone is wildly inconsistent when it tries to be funny it winks too much when it tries to be a political tale it s too obvious and I could go on and on about its badnessTake this passage for example Not only does it read like the author is framing each paragraph around a 5 word but also the construction is well a little juvenileJournalists armed with the thesaurus and apocalyptic scriptures fumbled and were defeated by it A gulfy deliuescence of deranged andarnessed air a volcano of the invisible darkly construed To the pleasure faithers with tiktok affections it was the sound of clockworks uncoling their springs and running down at a terrible speed It was the release of vengeful energy To the essentialists it seemed as if the world Sofonisba.

E author was determined to present every possible political view Confederate Waterloo head and one way or the other force it into the story But as Beyond Words: Daily Readings in the ABC's of Faith (Buechner, Frederick) he got writing and trying to actually write a STORY as opposed to an editorial opinion piecee lost track of what The Eatonville Anthology he was saying or the pointe was trying to make So many themes and ideas were a complete mess Not explained fully explained too fully so vague and complicated they were impossible to understand or often than not forgotten altogether I would The TM Techniue An intro Transcendental Meditation Teachings Maharishi Mahesh YOgi Arkana have appreciated ANY resolution even skewed to the author s opinions rather than whate often offered which is nothing It also felt so smug and superior it seemed like Das Glücksbüro he referenced things for the sake of feeling smart or provinge was informed like a college student mentioning Nietzsche in conversation not because Bodies in the Bog and the Archaeological Imagination he really wants to discuss the ideas or whatever but because it sounds smart and provese s beyond such things as keggers I just didn t like anything about this book I stuck with it to the end Daughter of Moloka'i hoping that maybe things would change or maybe things would come together in a way I didn t expect but nope I can only assume that it was so popular because of the interesting concept of the book or the fear to admit that they didn t get it or the broadway play which Iave The Santa Cruz Haggadah - Leader's Edition (Regular) heard is great and might better explain of the popularity of the book People loved the musical and bought the book thinking they would like that too Anyway I wouldn t recommend this book to anyone I ve pretty much stopped buying lunch at my work cafeteria because no matterow often the description of the day s entr e induces those salivary glands into action the end result is always terribly disappointing The food looks like it should be good braised beef that seems savory fresh looking tomatoes to impart a robust flavor colorful specks of This Could Be Our Future herbs thatint of a certain deliciousness and make the tummy grumble So it s a fresh shock to the system almost every time when it turns out to be nothing but a ruse Doesn t it takes a special kind of talent to start with what appear to be such promising ingredients and to produce with them a dish as utterly bland and as pitifully uninspiring as that cafeteria food invariably turns out to beWell doesn t it I love my physical edition of this novelwhile the reading experience wasn t as good as always thought that it would be MANY SHADES OF GREEN A thing that I got amazed when I started to label this book in the process of my review in my virtual shelves of Goodreads was Keepers of the Record: The History of the Hudson's Bay Company Archives how many different genres the novel touches Politics Religion Romance Humor Fantasy Magic Mystery and even EspionageAnd I was very tempted to select Military too but I opted notAnd certainly the mood and themes of the story embraces all those genres and maybe I knew about this book series some years ago while I was researching about the topic of Oz in general and since then I thought that it could be good to read it LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT FOR A BOOK S EDITION Some months ago 2013 by chance I found this edition in a shelf of a local bookstore I recognized the title of the book and I took it by impulse The cover was gorgeous with the poster of the musical version BUT what stunned me was the detail that this particular editionas the edges of the pages colored in greenGREENAh Honestly I can t think in something cooler to make irresistible this editionThose marvelous green edges on the pages of the book sold me the novel right away and I couldn t took back the book on the shelf Thanks goodness the wicked magic of the credit card allowed me to go out of the bookstore with the novel THIS IS NOT KANSAS Certainly when I started to read the book I knew that I wasn t in Kansas any Geez The Cowardly Lion and the Tin Woodman kiss their mothers with those filthy mouths The introduction of the book is like a slap to the readers to make them understand uick and Interaction Concepts of Personality hard that this is indeed an adult bookYou know I am not a prude not in the least but I think that Maguire made aard effort to make sure that this will be an adult novel since I think that many of the issues touched Entdeckungsreise in Die S�dsee Und Nach Der Berings Stra�e Zur Erforschung Einer Nord�stlichen Durchfahrt Vol 1 here could work just the same without the need of some big words and sex scenes while the drugsad to stay Lace Leather hehehe since indeedere the drugs played an important purpose on key momentsIt was like well since we Instrumentation and Sensors for Engineering Applications have sex drugs and rock n roll well no no rock n roll really not even on the musical version this is a story for only we the adults sorry kids you willave to keep busy with the Baum s
cute books meanwhile you grow up some yearsWell CS Lewis said that any children sbooks meanwhile you grow up some yearsWell CS Lewis said that any children s that it can t be enjoyed by adults just the same it s a poor children s taleSo facts of life first kids aren t dumb they can understand Cold Calling Techniques (That Really Work!) heavy topics even the new generations that grow up with internet as nanny and second adults don t need sex drugs and r you got it to enjoy an intelligent story IT S NOT EASY TO BE GREEN Since this is a really smart tale but maybe Iad some expectations that affect my final rating of the bookFirst there are really big jumps between the chapters and while there some unexpected turns and twists that one can think that it s something good but some of those twists were ah With Les chatons magiques - tome 01 : Une jolie surprise (01) him Really Geez And romance left the building Later I really expected an explanation ofow a person "can turn to be evil or be seen as evil but "turn to be evil or be seen as evil but turned out to be wicked not as evil but as crazy and for reasons really odd Also since the beginning there is something that I don t understand Elphaba born with green skin okay HERE in our beloved Kansas and the rest of the Earth around it could be a real trouble but Before We Were Yours hey they aren t in Kansas any that s Oz a land where animals can talk and people can do magic How odd really can be a person with green skin over there Honestly I could be freak out for a talking goat or lion than watching a person with green skin Also the green skin resulted an odd issue again at some point you see Elphaba is iniding but Queer, There, and Everywhere: 23 People Who Changed the World hey she is walking around the cityow good can be in The Texan hiding for several years if she is supposed to be the only woman with green skin in all Oz What The Gale Force recluted colorblind people Geez Also Iave my theories about the physical problem of Nessarose Elphaba s sister but since it wasn t approached beyond of being just a birth defect I don t see the point of The Indoor Pirates her problem Even I think that the story was evolving uite fine until Maguire tried to put togetheris own story with the original story when Dorothy arrives to Oz WICKED READING Besides all my complaints the book is still a smart vessel to touch sensitive topics of politics religion and social interaction without worrying *To Be Subjected To Harsh Critiue Since He Smartly Uses *be subjected to Fisher Investments on Industrials harsh critiue sincee smartly uses and themes in Oz and you Timelines of American Literature have to deduce those allegories on your own and at the end they will be your own ideas and not necessarily what the author wanted to sayHowever the book lacks of some action all stuffappened in a very appeased tempo Nevertheless I want to try in the future the other books by Maguire on this Wicked series and is other stand alone novels based on retellings of classic children s books This book as become increasingly popular mostly due to the success of the musical by the same name the truth is owever its not very good There are many interesting and intriguing plotlines in the book and you wait for them to be clerified and expanded upon but many never are many fantastic characters are introduced and are Het Achterhuis hinted at playing an important roll later in the book doesntappen the book doesnt even really give you the background you want on the witch it is made clear from the beginning that she Valuation: Measuring and Managing the Value of Companies has an eversion to water but you never find out why there are some vague mentions of some connection to the ocean but it is never followed through You never even get a really Good explanation to why she is green that part of the story is very uick and pretty unintersting The book is full of cool little interesting things that you swear will play a part but dont I really wish someone would take this book and expand it to its true potential the idea for the story is so cool but the ideas are just so unorganized that it was truly a let down My advice borrow the book see the musical it is completely different from the book but the story is much thought out the most disappointing part of the book for me whas the ending just awful very laim its like the author gave up and just leter melt no explanation no insight into the witch now Im being pretty The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes: A Hunger Games Novel harsh I should say that I loved the beginning of this book the firstalf even but well the last alfwhat a letdown. S about the nature of good and evilAn astonishingly rich re creation of the land of Oz this book retells the story of Elphaba the Wicked Witch of the West who wasn't so wicked after all 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 literatur.
review Wicked The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the WestE so simple wouldn t uman beings find less struggles I love Wicked The once negatively portrayed green ueen of evil from Oz as I liked to call Adoniram Judson her is thrown into very sad situations situations that seem so bizarre and yet she feels things the same way we all do It allowed me to look at people Iad once considered enemies and see they Числа haduman nature built into them long before they became my enemies they Is Your Networking Net Working? had feelings that led them to wherever theyappen to be nowMany people might not find a cut and dry moral in this book they may think it s dry or that it fails to meet the standards of The Wizard of Oz I m not afraid at all to say this darlings but we re not in Hollywood s Oz any Fact is if you properly read Baum s original Oz books Oz was a pretty morbid and cynical place Aside from names and places Wicked The Wizard of Oz movies or Baum s Oz books really don t The Revolutionary Paul Revere have much to do with eachother Theyave their own missions Just like Elphaba and Dorothy Tainted Breeze: The Great Hanging at Gainesville, Texas, 1862 had their own missions Dostoyevsky meets Frank Baum This was not as much fun as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies maybe because it is revisionist than mash up parody or spoof This is actually strangely a very mature work but set in Oz and from the perspective of Elpheba the wicked witch But it was amusing entertaining thought provokingead scratching etc etcPublished 2 years before Harry Potter and 4 years before Phantom Menace the influence on both series is apparent I did not love it but this was a fun book and I may read from MAKA MAKA Vol1 him Here is yet one instance that supports the old adage thatindsight is 2020 because All About Light Rookie Read About Science had I knownow much I d Secrets Sequences (Secret Coders) have enjoyed this book I dave read it sooner I Sanando El Alma Eterna - Perspectivas de Vidas Pasadas y Regresion Espiritual have no one to blame but myself for taking all the negative reviews so seriously For starters there are several types of people who should not read this book because it will make them angry The biggest one is that group of folks who is opposed to S E X appearing in books The sexy scenes in this book are not graphic They aren tot They aren t anything except ye olde average sex scene that for most of us who are over the age of consent isn t worth getting bent out of shape forAnd on top of all that the book is also jam packed with all kinds of issues that make people uncomfortable Politics Religion Science Racism Magic The Occult Sexism Class based societies Etc Mix that with a cherished fairy tale that a majority of us Crown of Cinder (Wings of Fury, have some childhoodistory with and you ve got a sensitive subject The story and the characters are one we re all familiar with Dorothy the Wizard of Oz the Wicked Witch of the West the Scarecrow Tinman Cowardly Lion etc But in this novel Maguire How to Draft Basic Patterns has taken these beloved characters and twisted them to suitis purposes The final product is something you will either love or Crafting Novels Short Stories hate As if the rating didn t already say it clearly I m a fan I picked this book up because of theype and The Road from Damascus had no expectations for reading any of the subseuent novels Maguireas published But now that the book is over I find my curiosity A Seat At The Table: A Novel of Forbidden Choices has been piued and I wouldn t mind following up with Son of a Witch to find out whatappens next in the political fiasco in Oz and the surrounding territories Instead of my usual griping style we ll do this review in list formThings That I Really Wish Gregory Maguire Had Bothered To Explain That Might Have Made Wicked Worth Reading Why Elphaba is green Why Elphaba cannot touch water The Philosophy Club which seemed to be some sort of bizarre sex club which was introduced towards the middle of the story and then never mentioned again How it s physically possible that Elphaba gave birth to a son but may actually not Soul Unchained (Sons of Wrath, have because she doesn t remember it Maguire s explanation is that she was drugged up on sedatives for the entire pregnancy and therefore cannot tell if she actuallyad a kid Umlisten Greg I know you re a guy but I assure you there is no drug on this earth or on Oz that makes a woman unable to remember giving birth What the Hunted Wolf (Seraphine Thomas, hell the Clock of the Time Dragon was andow it s able to give puppet shows revealing the Deep Dark Secrets of characters pasts Why Elphaba wanted the magic slippers so much The backstory of the Scarecrow and why The Jewish People: 2Their History and Their Religion heated the Wicked Witch of the West The Tin Man and Lion are explained but I guess by the time Wilhelm Van Gloeden head to come up with a story for the Scarecrow Maguire Samotny rejs OPTY had used up allis creative juices As a result the Scarecrow just appears with the others at the witch s castle and even Elphaba can t figure out why the LEGO Legends of Chima: Wolves and Crocodiles (Activity Book helle s thereUPDATE I didn t want to be a jerk about this but I am forced to deliver the following public service announcementATTENTION POTENTIAL COMMENTERS I appreciate the fact that you wish to take time out of your busy to day to offer explanations for some or all of the uestions I posed above HOWEVER before you do this I advise you to read through ALL THE OTHER COMMENTS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN POSTED explaining various aspects of the book that I am too stupid to grasp IF after reading every single comment you still feel that you Omega Beloved -

guest and your comment If not please be aware that the book s many flaws The Nalco Guide to Boiler Failure Analysis have already been explained to me by dozens of people and one person telling me it s a really good book you justave to read it twenty times before you understand MaGuire s genius will not convince me to alter my one star rating in any wayThank you and Who Is Esau Edom? have a nice day Iated this book Maybe it was because I was expecting so much with all the Weeds Among the Wheat Discernment Where Prayer and Action Meet hype maybe because I thought the original idea was so great whatever End result I freakingated this book This is a book that makes you want to sit down and re write it yourself because it is such a shame that such a great idea was so mishandled I loved the idea of delving into the witches and their past and seeing them from a different view point I loved the idea of the politics of the different realms of OZ There was so much source material to interpret in so many ways But no the biggest thing I Sesame Street Elmo's Easy as ABC Book and DVD Flap Book and DVD hated was the timeline It would start with the witches childhood and get really in depth into it chapters of the family and their day to day lives and the family dynamic And then it was like the author realized that if they continued on this way the book wouldave to be a series and every book in it a tome So the next thing you know abruptly Productive Christians in an Age of Guilt Manipulators A Biblical Response to Ronald J Sider he jumps forward in time And the explanation of whatappened in that gap is only briefly described if that It is so jarring I also felt that the characters were fleshed out during those brief times but after the jump And then it would seem almost like they were different characters Or a variation of the character you ad come to know If there were life altering events during the gap that changed the character s personality you can t just skip it Don t spend that much time making the reader get to know the character and then change them without showing ow and why I The Body Scoop for Girls hated the way the author would spend enormous amounts of time describing certain places or characters or situations in a way that gave the reader the idea that it would be significant and play into the main story Nope Which makes you feel so unsatisfied Imagine an entire chapter and a long wordy one at that devoted to a certain character or group of people and then then just drop out of the story completely Where did they go Whatappened to them Why spend so much time on them to just go no where with it Also after awhile it really seemed like the author You Don't Own Me: How Mattel v. MGA Entertainment Exposed Barbie's Dark Side had a definite AGENDA ande spent so much time forcing the characters and the plot to fit *that agenda that it disrupted the flow and felt forced I often felt like the characters *agenda that it disrupted the flow and felt forced I often felt like the characters t FREE AUDIOBOOKS 01 How to download Free AUDIO BOOKS MP3 File Human Read or Computer Generated TKP 0027 have acted that way givenis own description of them I don t like being preached to If you want to really write a political book with obvious leanings then do so But don t package it like this And this book could The Art and Making of The Expanse have been a great vehicle for a basic statement on many different things animal rights our ideas of others our treatment of people different from ourselves a broad idea of what is good and evil as opposed to what people often label good and evil but didn tave to be so skewed to the author s personal beliefs Animal Farm 1984 and many others come to mind I really that this story COULD Insurgence havead the potential to be a classic ad it not been so mishandled So of these concepts were brought up and then abandoned Or they were brought up and dealt with in a talky solilouy and without any real opposing view or anything It was like th. Where animals talk and strive to be treated like first class citizens Munchkinlanders seek the comfort of middle class stability and the Tin Man becomes a victim of domestic violence And then there is the little green skinned girl named Elphaba who will grow up to become the infamous Wicked Witch of the West a smart prickly and misunderstood creature who challenges all our preconceived notion.my guest and
