I started reading Wicked. I know, I am about 2 years overdue. For over a year I've had various and sundry people ask me, tell me, beg me, and talk to me about IT. But they're many reasons why its taken me this long to begin.
First off, my first association with the franchise was NOT ideal. My freshman year of college I became acquainted with Wicked through the continual blasting of the token high notes of Broadway sopranos. To tell you the truth, I don't remember what they were singing about. I do remember my constant annoyance towards my roommate, who, from what I could tell, only listened to John Mayer (who I also loathe), the Beatles, and the Wicked soundtrack. I know, I thought it was a strange combo choice too.
To make matters worse, the first time I tried to begin the novel I was sick with food poisoning from bad Thai salmon. Let me tell you, reading anything is an experience when you're half delirious. When I was recovering from mono (and taking A LOT of Vicadin) I tried to read War of the Worlds. Yeah...need I say more?
Anyway, the point is, it didn't really work. The only thing I remember about the Wicked reading experience was the 'bawdy' show detailed at the beginning of the book. You know what I'm talking about...
