Wonderful Wizard of Oz (Penguin Popular Classics)

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz - L. Frank Baum 3.5 stars I enjoyed it but didn't love it. Dorothy isn't a very likeable character. I much prefer the characters of the lion, scarecrow and the tin man; they have so much more depth to them and generally are more interesting as well. Loved that their entire pursuit is sort of useless since they already possess the thing they greatly desire. Also, was a bit shocked by the graphic bits and found it funny that in an introduction he wrote, he didn't like to promote violence. Additionally, I found the heavy sense of irony through out the entire book highly entertaining and for that, I'd read it again. Overall an interesting book. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.Edit - didn't realize the series was a bajillion books long :/
