Lost Gregory Maguire read online review & book description:

“A brilliant, perceptive, and deeply moving fable.”
—Boston Sunday Globe

Publishers Weekly calls Gregory Maguire’s Lost “a deftly written, compulsively readable modern-day ghost story.” Brilliantly weaving together the literary threads of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan, Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, and the Jack the Ripper stories, the bestselling author of The Wicked Years canon creates a captivating fairy tale for the modern world. With Lost, Maguire—who re-imagined a darker, more dangerous Oz, and inspired the creation of the Tony Award-winning Broadway blockbuster Wicked—delivers a haunting tale of shadows and phantoms and things going bump in the night, confirming his reputation as “one of contemporary fiction’s most assured myth-makers” (Kirkus Reviews).

    I love this book. I have read all 4 of his oz books, the Cinderella one, the snow white one and by far this was my fave. It wasn't nearly as slow starting as all the others, and let's be honest it takes Mr. Maguire a while to get into it and you just have to suffer through...this book was a great modern piece full of crazy people, possessed animals, supposed ghosts, and a stubborn broken heart all wrapped up in miserable yet somewhat romantic English weather. In fact reminiscing over this read makes me want to pick it up again...
  • Good story but felt like a chore to read

    I loved Maguire's Wicked and Tales of an Ugly Stepsister. Son of a Witch was tolerable but I felt like it was overwritten. I felt the same way about this book. The little supernatural teasers weren't enough excitement to make muddling through the endless monologue of the narrator. It reminded me of someone who is high...and as a result says 200 words to get out what should be a five word statement. I stayed up till 2 am last night to finish the book just to be done with it. I liked the story line, but the payoff in the end wasn't worth comprehending the English jargon and self-indulgent ramblings.

    This book was slow at the beginning or didn't seem like it was going to lead to anything. But it finally got interesting about half way through. Generally I don't have the patience for something so slow, but I like the author and I had alot of sleepless nights when I was 9 months pregnant. So I should say I was pleasantly surprised and glad I stuck with it.
