A Lion Among Men by Gregory Maguire

While I like what Gregory Maguire has written in the past – Wicked, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister and Mirror Mirror, sadly enough I did not enjoy A Lion Among Men. The book did not strike a chord with me like his earlier works did. It was supposed to be a part of the Wicked Series and yet it did not have the magic of the story or the prose like that of Wicked and Son of a Witch. All I can say is that one knows about the Cowardly Lion from the Wizard of Oz (barely does he feature in Wicked though) and he is at the centre of all the action in this book, however all said and done there is not a growl left in this one. Not even for a good fairytale reading.
