Welcome to Gaia! ::

He has some pretty crazy fractured fairy tales sweatdrop

I can say that I have read:
Confessions of an Ugly Step Sister (Cinderella)
Mirror Mirror (Snow White)
Wicked, Son of A Witch, A Lion Among Men (Wizard of oz series)

I am currently reading Lost, which is basically a novel that is among the lines of Scrooge from Christmas Carol, and Jack The Ripper.

Personally, out of all the books I've read by him...My favorite has to be Wicked, mainly because the storyline is based around the wicked witch of the west and how she came to be, well "wicked."
The storyline goes in depth to how she became a witch, her background, Schooling, How she met Galinda, and how she became to loathe the Wizard of all Oz land and everyone else.

It is very emotional and amazing how detailed Gregory Maguire writes. 3nodding


If you have read any of Gregory Maguire's fractured fairy tale novels, (assuming you've read more than 1) which one is your favorite and why?

I tried to read Lost, but I just could not get into it.

A good friend of mine is pretty sure I just won't like Gregory Maguire, period, though I wouldn't mind checking out Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister.
I read some of his books in high school. I thought they were gripping once you get into the story and very emotional.

I've read Wicked and Mirror Mirror, they were good books but not my favorites. And some parts of Mirror Mirror were just gross.

I have to agree with you on the Mirror Mirror fact.
I didn't like reading on how the wicked step mother liked squid so much...... sweatdrop

I've read Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister and Mirror Mirror. Started Wicked, but never really warmed up to it. I do plan on reading it someday. So far my favorite was Confessions.
