      God it has taken me forever to finish anything, but now that I am done with my undergraduate I can actually write some reviews of books. So let's start with this collection of the first three books in the OZ series: The Wizard of Oz, The Marvelous Land of Oz, and Ozma of Oz.The Wizard of Oz: [3 Stars]For people who are fans of the amazing film, I can not say that this book is really for you. I mean there are similarities in terms of general content: Dorothy gets transported to Oz, meets her thre [...]

      Very easy and enjoyable reads.The Wonderful Wizard of Oz-Lovely worldbuilding. -Dorothy was a decent enough character. I did find it kind of badarse that she took a nap when she was in a middle of cyclone.-I really didn't understand why Dorothy was so desperate to go back to Kansas, her aunt and uncle seemed unlikeable… And Oz was so much more fun.-I kept rolling my eyes at the Scarecrow, Tinman and Lion respectively wanting a brain, a heart and bravery — it was bloody obvious that they alre [...]

      Started my journey to read all the original Oz books and a wonderful start it was. All the creativity, wisdom and characters are brought back to life and we see that he was creating worlds like Rowling has done a century later. Volume two awaits.

      The Wonderful Wizard of Oz: 3.5 stars.Hehehe. This story is so funny, so absurd! But in a good way. I really enjoyed reading this story and it was interesting to see just how different it was from the film adaptation. If the characters in the story were like the characters in the movie, you'd have to call it a comedy. Overall it was quite an easy read and I thoroughly enjoyed it.The Marvelous Land of Oz: 3 stars.Though I did enjoy this story, I didn't like it as much as the Wonderful Wizard of O [...]

      Wonderful stories last year i was in a barnes & noble and came across this beautiful graphic novel -(The wonderful Wizard Of Oz) - i couldn't put it down . when i finished the book it the back it had sketches of its charters also had the cover to the next book (the marvelous land of oz) . now let me tell you i had no idea there was an oz series so just a few days ago i ordered the second graphic novel .just as good as the first i finished it in hours .just couldnt put it down. now you mig [...]

      This post is for finishing OZMA OF OZ, but with the omnibus I'm reading out of. CUTE FACT: ALL OF THE OMNIBUSES IN THIS SERIES SHOW COVERS WITH ONLY MALE CHARACTERS OR NO CHARACTERS AT ALL. A whole bunch of people REALLY, DEEPLY understood the books they were publishing, huh? :D :D :D :D :D :D

    7. Daniel Richardson

      The books definitely get better as they go along. Billina is one of the greatest Oz characters.

    8. Crystal Pressley reiter

      My little one and I loved reading this together. today was the first time she requested that we read this during the day, as we usually have it as part of our nighttime routine. We read the last 4 chapters today because she just kept saying yes to me reading more! This first collection of the three books, had everything we love! Adventure, friendship, equality, humour, and love. Over the entire three books was one constant theme: friendship, and goodness prevailing in times of evil. A much neede [...]

      three different stories - the wizard of oz was the only one I could really stomach though I forced myself through. I feel like the screen writers did a wonderful job of rewriting a very simple story. Typically I like the book better - not in this case

    10. Jes

      This is a good kid's book. There's a bit of satire to keep the adults smiling if they are reading these stores to kiddos.

    11. Julie

      What a wonderful series that is still fun to read and share after being printed over a 100 years ago. I never read this as a child and am glad to have discovered these classic stories. On to Vol. 2.

    12. Justin Deveau

      The first three Oz books. I loved these as a kid. High on whimsy low on plot, but still entertaining.

      FINALLY, IT'S OVER!Ratings:Book 1 - 3 starsBook 2- 1 starsBook 3- 2 StarsRound up: 2 starsRant( read at your own discretion):I read The Wizard of Oz a few months ago and gave it 3 stars ( my rating hasn't changed) and I had heard that the following books were even better so I thought I would give it a shot. And I have to be honest and say that at times reading this book was like torture. It was painful and I dreaded reading it every time I laid eyes on it. It took me so long, TOO LONG, I have ne [...]

    14. Katie Wilson

      This collection contains the first three books in the Oz series. The first one is The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. This is about the journey that Dorothy takes with the scarecrow, tin woodman, and the lion. It's different from the film in the way that there is less extra parts that are not needed. For example, the beginning of the book doesn't have so much of a lead-in, which I actually really liked. It's the classic story, with a few changes. In the end, Dorothy has to go back through the Land of Oz [...]

    15. Mimi

      For years I have always wanted to read all the stories of 'The Wizard of Oz' and this year I decided I was going to do it. 'The Wizard of Oz' I found was easy to read and made up of interesting characters. The Tin Woodsman I liked the most and thought it was interesting the way he ended up being made of tin. The story is good but it just isn't exciting enough for me. 'The Marvellous Land of Oz' I just did not like at all. It starts off completely different to the first story with new characters [...]

    16. Shaxar

      I'm so glad I found this set; all I've been able to get my hands on before is just The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Now I'm finally able to see more of this funny world as written by its creator. ^_^This is really a delightful collection. Oz really is a straight-up fairytale world, very sweet and clever and whimsical. The characters are simple but clear, and the tone is very light and adventurous. In the further books, we get to see much more of Oz than we saw at first, and it's clear Baum had fun wi [...]

      There is a lot I could say about the first three novels in L. Frank Baum's Oz series, but the most salient one is that, to my surprise, the sequels were better crafted than the famous initial novel that started it all. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is difficult to read with fresh eyes due to the iconic popularity of the movie, but to the extent that I was able, I found it odd and poorly wrought. In the latter half it felt like Baum lost interest in the story and substituted summaries for actual sto [...]

      Have you ever had those moments where you've seen a bunch of awesome adaptations of a classic book, and then you're kinda disappointed when you go back and read the source material? This is one of those moments for me.Not counting the 1939 movie everyone's seen, I'd recommend these versions of Oz:-Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire-Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige-Emerald City Confidential (Steam is about the only place this amazing game can be bought [...]

    20. Edward Davies

      01. THE WIZARD OF OZFor many this is considered the best and, outside of the USA, only Oz book. Many people don't realise just how many of these books there were, and this is the one with the most consistant plot (if any - some of them don't have a plot).02. THE MARVELOUS LAND OF OZFor a kids book that's 100 years old, this has a pretty clever conceit to the progression of the story. Not to spoil things but the main character is far more important to the future of the Oz books than first appeara [...]

    21. Joyce

      Read this bound of the first three novels in the Oz series. I highly recommend this novel. It is quirky and very funny. It is for all ages. I found myself laughing out loud at some parts of the book. I love the characters so much. They are so unique. They each have an attribute that we should learn from. I love the evolution each character have as the book progresses. I'm so sucked in the Oz world. Really amazing and MAGICAL! A must-read for everyone.

    22. Bridget

      3 stories.1 Volume down4 volumes and 12 stories to go! -----------------------------------My thoughts?Ozma of Oz wasn't a favorite (Wizard of Oz is) but it was really cute and fun to read!This was a story/book I started a while back but never finished and wanted to get it done! Finally got it done! :-)----------------------------------(This book went towards my personal goal of the TBR takedown and the "Read a 20th Century Classic" for the Popsugar Reading Challenge 2016)

    23. Carl

      In truth I have read only the first book of the three. I plan to spread them out and use them as palate cleansers.Haveing only seen the Movie version with Judy Garland et al, Reading L. Frank Baum's orginal novel was refreshing and great fun. It's a touch more violent and much more extremely fantastic than the celluloid take. It would be exciting if someone made a version more true to the novel with today's special effects. It would have to be better than that godawful prequel garbage with James [...]

    24. Lauren

      I never realized that The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was the first book in a 14 book series! These are the first 3 stories, and they're delightful! They read like an Aesop fable, the story line is very simplistic and far-fetched, but engaging and juvenile (in a good way). On a note about the physical book-I LOVE the look and feel of these books-the illustrations are beautiful, and have a nice sheen/metallic accent on areas of the picture. The touch of the books is also great-not typical glossy, but [...]

    25. Dave Maddock

      Wow are these books overrated! My son enjoys them, but the prospect of reading the remaining dozen books in the series makes me want to weep. A sympathetic critic might call these books "whimsical." I find them lazily conceived and executed. I can only hope against all evidence to the contrary that they improve. They've got to, right? I mean, no one can write 14 consecutive novels without learning something about writing novels, right? Right?!

    26. caro

      I loved it I had already read the first oz book but rereading it now opened my eyes to the whole series that Lank wrote it was very very hard to put down. During FCA a club I'm at on campus i remember my friends had to tell me to stop reading it since we had a speaker which was really hard. Im in love with the oz books cant wait to find out what happens next.

    27. Wayne Farmer

      A wonderful collection of the first 3 Oz novels. While The Wizard of Oz is considered the Classic out of them all I actually preferred the second and third books. Baum has my sense of humour and his novels surprised me by the little jokes scattered throughout. Well worth reading if you've never read them before.

    28. Zinnia Rose

      I've only read the first tale, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz so far, but I do mean to read the rest eventually as I liked the first one, though not as much as the movie, which I adored as a child. It's such a sweet tale of adventure, and a very light, uplifting, easy read.
