So I just finished the book Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West. I know it made a hit a few years ago (maybe more than a few) when it came out then went on Broadway so I’m behind reading it. The marketing of the book is really smart. How many green books do you see out there?
I bet its really interesting to see on Broadway. I just hope that what’s used to make the witch green is safer than what was used in the movie the Wizard of Oz. I mean the witch almost burned up.
Throughout the whole book there is the question of what is evil, where does it come from, and when is someone evil. I think those are good questions for someone considered the wicked witch of the west. I mean she gets labeled as evil but is far from the most evil character in the novel.
I admit to being biased when starting the book because the image of the wicked witch of the west from the movie was in my mind. Now I kind of want to go back and watch it. I’ve also never read the original books by L Frank Baum.
PS. Don’t you wonder what Glinda is whispering?
