Son of a Witch by Gregory Maguire

I cannot say that I liked this book very much. It was a let down after Wicked, that’s for sure. Nothing in this book made me care about Liir; and, so it seems, what happened to the Land of Oz after Dorothy killed the witch. Two burning questions that Liir had throughout this book were answered at the end, but they never seemed like mysteries to me. What occurred is what I believed all along. It seemed to me that Liir is the only person in this world or the other that couldn’t figure it out for himself. One question that I did have ~ what happened to Nor ~ was never answered concretely and that was the only storyline I had any real interest in. Oh well… Macguire must be saving that for the next book. If anyone ever reads it, please let me know. I can’t say that I’m interested enough to find out for myself.
