Best of the Trio,
By A Customer
This review is from: Confessions Of An Ugly Stepsister (Paperback)I do not include LOST in the category of Maguire's best novels, since it is not like the other three. Having read all, however, I'd have to say COAUS was my favorite.
I think if you read this book, you'd either love it or hate it. My mom tried reading it and couldn't get past the prologue. I read it, and bawled my eyes out in the epilogue.
It was a bit slow, but that's the style of his books. From what I gather, you're supposed to savour every word and detail.
Iris is incredibly likeable, as is her older sister (don't remember the name).
I loved both the novel and stage adaptation of Wicked, and didn't think anything could beat it, but COAUS is my favorite book. Mirror Mirror was also thrilling, but there really wasn't much read there.
