Wicked by Gregory MaGuire

The saga of the Wicked Witch of the West is imagined in this story that became a hit Broadway play which I get to see next month, a Christmas present from my BFF.

I found the book over long with too much description and not enough flow.  I felt sympathy for Elphaba and her search for forgiveness but she never was softened into understanding and compassion.  I remember there were several well-stated observations about human nature, but I didn't mark them and they were drowned in all the words.  My own version of crankiness, I suppose!
