wicked Wicked

Hmm, I don’t usually post before I’ve finished reading a book but thought I’d jump on with my ‘dilemma.’ I’m usually a fast reader but for some reason, it’s taking me a looong time to get through ‘Wicked’, which surprises me as it grabbed my attention very early on in the book and it’s quirky and fun to read. The problem is that I’m not loving it nor feeling it too keenly. I’m three quarters of the way though and even though it’s not a big book at all, I know it’ll be another week before I’m on here reviewing the finished book. What are other people’s thoughts on ‘Wicked’ and other Gregory Maguire books? This is my first one…

    I’ve not heard of them. But some novels do just take slower reading…

      Yes, I think you’re right. I can never understand though how I can race through an 800 page novel in 3 days and then take over a week to read a 300 page one!!

    I loved Wicked and forced it upon all my friends telling them that they must read it. Not one of them even finished it! Now I find myself reluctant to read it again in case I find that they were right.
