This is the first discussion for Wicked by Gregory Maguire. Do not read this thread until you have read the first part of the book. (The first part is titled Munchkinlanders.) If you have already read past the first part, please participate in this thread but do not discuss anything past the first part so you do not spoil it for anyone else. I'll start the discussion thread for the whole book next Sunday.
What do you think of the book so far? I like it. I did not realize it was going to start so early in Witch's life. I'm very curious to see what happens. I expect there is going to be some plot twists to make the development more interesting since we all know how she ends up.
What parts did you like? It surprised me when Elphaba bit that lady's finger off. I thought it was some type of hyperbole at first. I also like that Elphaba's first word was "horrors."
Please post any comments you have about the first part of the book.
