" I'm glad I finally read this classic! Although it was not as "amazing" as I thought it would be, and many times very ridiculous, it was still an enjoyable read. " said.

" This is one of those rare books where the movie is ACTUALLY BETTER than the book. I did read this years ago and I did enjoy it, but the movie tops it. Still all the magic is here at the beginning. " said.

" I thought it interesting that in the foreword Baum says he didn't want this to be violent like the fairytales of the past... and yet, a little girl transports to a strange land, kills the first person she meets, and teams up with three strangers to kill again. They also kill various creatures on their path of destruction.Perhaps we could savor all the violence but have a much more abridged version with the following: " said.

"Book 20/100 for 2015

I really, really liked this book! I honestly had pretty low expectations going into this book and thought it wouldn't compare at all to the greatness of the 1939 movie (which is one of my favorite movies), but I was wrong. It was one of the best children's classics that I've ever read and I even loved how it wasn't that similar to the movie, so it kept me interested. I also had a beautiful hardcover Puffin Classics edition, so that make the experience even better! All in all, I'm so glad that I had to read it for my class!

" Ah such fun! I don't think I'll read the rest of the series but I did really enjoy this. " said.

"While I did very much enjoy this book, I honestly think I preferred the movie to the book. It is very rare you’ll hear me say that, but in this case, it’s definitely the truth. The book is excellent but I find the story was much more lively on the screen.

Don’t get me wrong, I adored the book and read it in one sitting. But I just found it lacked a little of the spark that the movie had. It felt like things were rushed in the book, an incredibly important part of the story would only fill 2-3 pages and then there’d be 5+ pages of nonsensical details.

It remained an excellent story nonetheless, and will definitely remain on my shelves for years to come and to be revisited countless times I’m sure!
