Son of a Witch by Gregory Maguire
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
While I enjoyed the book as a story of a lost young man who may or may not be the son of Alphaba, it was very dark and depressing. As the plot proceeds there is a measure of main character development, but during his wanderings through Oz, he and the readers, is not really sure of who he is or is place in the grand scheme of the book, which is perplexing. As a reader, I wanted more of a climax to the story and it was not there. If you are a fan of Wicked and McGuire's books, as well as a lover of darker reads, this story will fit you well, just don't expect a major resolution to a climactic story, as it is not to be found.
