Contraportada:

When Dorothy triumphed over the Wicked Witch of the West in L. Frank Baum's classic tale, we heard only her side of the story. But what about her arch-nemesis, the mysterious witch? Where did she come from? How did she become so wicked? And what is the true nature of evil?

Gregory Maguire creates a fantasy world so rich and vivid that we will never look at Oz the same way again. Wicked is about a land where animals talk and strive to be treated like first-class citizens, Munchkinlanders seek the comfort of middle-class stability and the Tin Man becomes a victim of domestic violence. And then there is the little green-skinned girl named Elphaba, who will grow up to be the infamous Wicked Witch of the West, a smart, prickly and misunderstood creature who challenges all our preconceived notions about the nature of good and evil.

Críticas:

"It's a staggering feat of wordcraft, made no less so by the fact that its boundaries were set decades ago by somebody else. Maguire's larger triumph here is twofold: First, in Elphaba, he has created (re-created? renovated?) one of the great heroines in fantasy literature: a fiery, passionate, unforgettable and ultimately tragic figure. Second, "Wicked is the best fantasy novel of ideas I've read since Mervyn Peake's "Gormenghast or Frank Herbert's "Dune. Would that all books with this much innate consumer appeal were also this good. And vice versa.""--Los Angeles Times""An outstanding work of imagination.""--USA Today.".". [a] magical telling of the land of Oz before and up to the arrival of Dorothy and company.... A captivating, funny, and perceptive look at destiny, personal responsibility, and the not-always-clashing beliefs of faith and magic. Save a place on the shelf between "Alice and "The Hobbit --that spot is well deserved.""--Kirkus Reviews""A magnificent work, a genuine tour de force."--Lloyd Alexander, author of the "Chronicles of Prydain "Maguire combines puckish humor and bracing pessimism in this fantastical meditation on good and evil, God and free will, which should...captivate devotees of fantasy.""Publishers Weekly"Listen up, Munchkins. Stop your singing, stop the dancing. The Wicked Witch is no longer dead. But not to worry. Gregory Maguire's shrewdly imagined and beautifully written first novel, "Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, " not only revives her but re-envisions and redeems her for our times.""Newsday"Children - children of all ages, as Maguire reminds us in this splendid novel - need witches. Gregory Maguire has taken this figureof childhood fantasy and given her a sensual and powerful nature that will stir adult hearts with fear and longing all over again. It's a brilliant trick - and a remarkable treat.""The Times-Picayune"It is to [Maguire's] everlasting credit that he has succeeded so admirably that his book stands as an independent and inspired whole; it is also very close to being an instant classic.... Maguire has hit a home run his first time at bat. That "Wicked is a first novel is remarkable because it is so fully realized, so rich and involving. It is the most seamless interweaving of fantasy and reality since John Crowley's peerless "Little, Big, written in poetic language as graceful as a Ray Boldger tap-dance.""The Commercial Appeal"It is for good readers who like satire, and love exceedingly imaginative and clever fantasy.""School Library Journal
