Book Review: “Out of Oz” by Gregory Maguire

I think my biggest problem with the book was its time-scale. I realize that makes me somewhat of a hypocrite, given that my favorite book takes place over about the same scale (ten or so years) and its sequels occur almost twenty years after that, but there was just something about the way Maguire cavalierly tossed off “a year passed” or “a year later” that turned me off to the story.

My review of “Out of Oz” by Gregory Maguire is now up on Escape Pod.
