Wait until they find out about the crazed candy factory owner who enslaves as entire race, forces them to work in self-evidently unsafe conditions, then systematically tortures children he considers "bad" in front of their parents.

Dorothy killed 2 people and used heroin in the original movie.

The involuntary manslaughter before she even set foot in Oz was bad enough, but then to steal the shoes off the victim's feet so the victim's only living relative couldn't claim them and THEN stealing a farmer's property, recruiting a body-armored man with an axe and bringing a wild animal into a public place in the name of forming a heavily-armed gang to commit a home invasion and murder the original victim's sister? That's stone cold, yo.

Let's not forget how she blew all the Munchkins after they had all pulled an anal train on her.

Having read Wicked and its sequels... yeah. Might as well go ahead and throw the R-rating on there now while there's still time.

No nothing at all. The musical is closer to MGM's Oz than it is to the novel. The book was just dreary, no fun at all. The musical I thought was much better.

The book (Wicked), was horrible. It was painful to read, unnecessarily vulgar and cruel. The musical took the concept of the book, and turned it into something pretty interesting and enjoyable.

I think the second one should have been R-Rated because this movie eats the souls of the young.

i recently had this comment sent to me on FaceBook: It's the ultimate Chick Flick, two women are willing to kill each other over a pair of shoes.

More people need to read the actual series. It's way more trippier than what the current Pop Culture at large believes it to be.

I did read "Wicked" because a relative recommended it, I liked it okay, but felt the book was lacking something, and seemed like it was more for working out the author's hang-ups. This is coming from someone who enjoyed the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant.

So much this. The very creatively titled Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz is still a favourite of mine. The whole invisible bears thing may be some of the greatest nightmare fuel in a children's book that I have ever read.

First of all, this description has been floating around for decades.

Secondly, everyone should read the books. My favorite was the one where the heroes found an entire civilization made out of living sentient wood - wooden creatures, landscapes, buildings - all alive and talking. The wooden people objected to the party traveling through their land, so how do our heroes respond? They burn the whole farking civilization to the ground and go merrily on their way. Dorothy (or one of the other little girls that feature in the series - I forget) commits genocide to remove a minor obstacle from her path.

Pretty sure that was from "Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz", same one with the invisible bears referenced up thread. I am making my way through these, picked them up after the wifey started reading them and was saying how good they are. Definitely think they should be a must read, lots of fun and great imagination.

Good one. I still find it interesting how his personality more or less resides in his tin body rather than his head or the other spare parts in Chopfyt. Consequently Nimmie Amee has a twisted "best of both worlds" fantasy in my opinion.

They left out the part where she stole the shoes. makes it much more fun when you look at it as a mugging and a home invasion.

Well *a* decade and a half give or take. It was written by Rick Polito in 1998. It had a revival in late October when it started making the rounds on the Internet after appearing on Reddit. So Fark is only a couple of months behind this time around.

Although I had problems with bits and pieces of the book I liked it overall. Then I went to go see Wicked the musical. Now, I would rate the songs an 8, the art direction a 10 and the book... a 3. God I hated that story and the dialogue was so insipid. I honest to god cringed throughout.

You did not, nobody enjoys the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. Anybody that claims to is just delusional that is like saying you finished Atlas Shrugged.

Read the original stories. Oz was NOT a happy fun-time joy-joy place. Cowardly Lion wasn't all that cowardly when the wild beasts of Oz attacked, and Tin Woodsman used that ax of his a lot. And that's not getting into Ozma, the Nome King, and other nightmare fuel.

Heh. One of the few fantasy books I've ever tried that I gave up on. I even kept on for a few chapters after the protagonist got all rapey for no reason.
