Review: Hiddensee

This review does not contain spoilers! Please keep them out of the comments as well.

Title: Hiddensee

Author: Gregory Maguire

Stars: ★★

I was rather underwhelmed with this one. Until the last fifth of the book, the connection to The Nutcracker really didn’t make much sense to me. A dry and frustrating story that touches on coming of age. The charm of Wicked is entirely absent.

There isn’t actually must to say about it. It’s long – but not because of its length – it’s the emptiness in every page. It’s literary fiction. Thick and tiring, but maybe I’m just a bias spec fic junky. Either way, I’d avoid even if you loved Wicked.
