Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Fine piece of fanfiction. Really, I applaud. 5 stars. Except someone published it.
Beginning was fine. The Oz characters don't act like they're Oz characters, though, and the timeline's uncertain. Also it's all a setup for a series, which is not cool. In the moments where the author had a cool idea and was a decent writer, it was fine. But the reason it was fine was that all the imagining had already been done. As long as it was just fanfiction, it was silly rather than bad.
But the author can't make up her mind. Book or movie? Sequels or not? She goes back and forth, switching backstories and then hastily backpedaling.
And this is the most incomprehensible review I've ever written. I'm going to stop trying and go get some sleep and water.
