Where are you in Wicked? Do you want me to post some discussion questions? Do you want to post your own? Is anyone able to read in this heat? 🙂

It’s Not Easy Being Green… Or is it?

Posted in Wicked tagged , at 5:01 pm by Ms. Davis

I am addicted to this book! Where are you in your reading? Can we be through Part 3 by the end of the weekend? Or is by next week a better time frame? I think a lot of discussion will open up when we finish the book, but for now, chew on this question!

What is the significance of Elphaba’s green skin? What are the rewards of being so different, and what are the drawbacks? In Oz – and in the real world – what are the meanings associated with the color green, and are any of them pertinent to Elphaba’s character?

What is your response to the story so far? Are you interested in the characters?

Can we be through Part II – Gillikin by next Sunday, May 25? Let me know if you need more time!

Don’t forget that you can post questions or thoughts to stand alone, or you could write a comment in response to a post. Write away! Hope you are enjoying the book, so far!

Our next book will be Wicked by Gregory Maguire. Let’s try to have the first part, Munchkinlanders, done this weekend (Sunday, May 18). Please post any comments or insights! Let’s make this a busy blog!

Also, let’s see if we can get more discussion going about Empire Falls. There is so much to think about!
