The Wizard of Oz From the first sentence to the last letter The Wizard of Oz had me wanting to die. This book was so boring I could barely stand to read all of it. But I guess if you like that, you'd read it. The Wizard of Oz is a story of many conflicts and one main conflict. The conflict of man against man is set between Dorothy and The Wicked Witch of the West, because Dorothy was accused of murdering the Wicked Witches evil sister The Wicked Witch of the East. Another reason for The Wicked Witch of The West to hate Dorothy was that she had her sisters ruby red slippers. Dorothy is the protagonist in the story. She is a farm girl living with her aunt and uncle, and is swept away to an unknown place when a tornado occurs. The Wicked Witch of the West is the antagonist in the story. She frightens the good citizens of Oz on a daily basis for fun. She lives in a gigantic castle with all of her evil minion flying monkeys, and soldiers. Another conflict in the story is man against himself, with the characters scarecrow who wants a brain, the tin man who wants a heart, and the friendly lion who would like very much to have some courage. Another conflict is man against nature, when Dorothy and her friends are trying to get to the emerald city to see the wizard of oz and the field of flowers there running through slows them down by making them all fall asleep. Another character is Glenda the good witch of the north who helps Dorothy on her journey through oz to get home. There is also an entire city called munchkin land and is inhabited by munchkins. The characters in this story are mostly stock. Most of the conflicts are not reasonable. The themes are all revealed quite satisfactorily. There is some humor in the book as well as suspense and action. In conclusion I think people should read this book or at least a couple pages to see if they would like it or not. It would probably be good for a rainy day or a good beach read. It is mostly teaching you the moral of never take advantage of your family and always know that they love you no matter what. But in my opinion I think this book was as "dull as dishwater" as my teacher would say.
I'm a parent of a third grader that had to do a project which they were suppose to read a book and pick one character from the book to dress up as. My daughter was determined to do the story "The Wizard of Oz", and dress as the bad witch. One major problem, we could not find a book on her reading level. Not one public library or school library had anything appropriate.The kids center of the library had a version of this story but it was 287pgs. long. This book was perfect, just what I was looking for. The story, pictures, etc. was awesome. I was 100% satisfied. I'm glad my daughter was so persistent on us finding this book because it's a great old time favorite to add to any book collection.
Ohh my god it is so good I nread that book like six times and i have never gotten bored of the book.I recomand to the people who are reading this to buy the book trust me you won't regret.It's even better than the movie Well check out the book!!!!!!!1
