I'm about to start Son of a Witch, the sequel to Wicked. Go ahead and revoke my lit degree now.
I loved that book, though not as much as I loved Wicked. It's an enjoyable read...then again, I've enjoyed almost every Gregory Maguire novel [except for Lost ...I just can't get through it ].
Currently and still working on getting through Journey to the West by Wu Cheng'en [translated by W.J.F. Jenner]...it's a fantastic Chinese classic, though I need to take occasional breaks from it and read something else. I'd do well to look for James Rollins' Oracle sometime soon...or I could always reread something from my collection.
