    Mobi Ü The Next ueen of Heaven ¸ The Next ueen of HeavenThis novel is an embarrassment the euivalent of catching Gregory Maguire picking his nose at a stop light Too harsh? Hey he started it On page 332 Hogan picked his nose and flicked it at Kirk's bouffant where it stuck and hung like a little worm That's pretty much the juvenile tone throughout the book You know a book is going to be bad when the author apologizes for it in the Author's Note For readers who know me primarily as a writer of fantasy the setting and subject matter an

    Mobi Ü The Next ueen of Heaven ¸ The Next ueen of HeavenI must admit I'm a complete sucker for books that are set in small towns If I hear about a book or read the blurb on the back cover and it says something along the lines of A group of characters live in a small town

    Mobi Ü The Next ueen of Heaven ¸ The Next ueen of HeavenThis book was fantastic and is now one of my favourites I've even gone back to read certain sections again something I rarely if ever do It was a joy to read it I loved the characters the small town setting the plots This book was very real with real life difficulties which made the characters crystal clear and believable They also had very believable flaws which made them human Painfully so Yet their perspectives are told with their each uniue brand of humor that what would be a sad book is transformed into something poignant instead And also something very very funny This book has many laugh out loud moments It's the best sort of comedy its emb

    Mobi Ü The Next ueen of Heaven ¸ The Next ueen of HeavenI consider myself a Maguire fan based on my enjoyment of a number of previous books Wicked of course but I think that Ugly Stepsister was monumentally good This book I confess that I gave up after 100 pages Perhaps it gets better after t

    Mobi Ü The Next ueen of Heaven ¸ The Next ueen of HeavenThe only other Maguire novel I've read is his now legendary Wicked The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West 20 years ago when I was a callow graduate student at UCLA I remember liking it for the subversive revision of the children's classic than for any other reason I enjoy that kind of literature Jason M

    Mobi Ü The Next ueen of Heaven ¸ The Next ueen of HeavenFinished this last night and am still mulling it over There were moments as I was reading it when I smiled or chuckled or maybe even laughed out loud at some of the uirky bits and phrases I really wish I'd followed my sometimes pattern of marking those spots so I could dutifully report them here but for some reason I didn't mark themLet me say straight off that there were several things I really liked about this book The main thing was how Concord Press and Gregory Maguire made it available to the reading public It was incredibly generous and altruistic and far reaching Don't believe me? Then see the list of charities and contributions people who have received this book have done in return for the gift everything from the usual spots for donation to 20 Au to a blind Aborigine on the streets of Alice Springs More than 114950 at this writing Generosity based publishing rocks Thank you Concord Press and thank you Mr MaguireI think I went into this expecting this to be a li

    Mobi Ü The Next ueen of Heaven ¸ The Next ueen of HeavenAfter reading this book I can see the correlations between it and the back cover synopsis but can't help feeling that the back cover was misleading For example Mrs Scales does not at any point in the book speak in tongues Also Christmas pageant is the wrong term for the Christmas Eve mass debacle it depicts there are no people just chipped old creche statues and I've always thought a pageant involved real people acting out somethingbut maybe I'm wrong I could live with thatWhere to start? I'm disappointed Clearly Why? Because this had the potential to be a really g

    Mobi Ü The Next ueen of Heaven ¸ The Next ueen of HeavenI really want to enjoy every book I read; that's the whole reason I pick them up in the first place because they sound interesting However every once in awhile you hit a dud and The Next ueen of Heaven by Gregory Maguire is one book that just never got my attention let alone kept it The book is the story of the town Thebes full of eccentric characters including Mrs Scales who becomes a little crazy after being knocked on the head by a Catholic statue her daughter Tabitha who rebels against her mother's religion and just about everything else and her two sons all the result of three different marriages There's also the gay choir director Jeremy who happens to live fairly nearby to his ex lover now married with children is also practicing for a New York musical contest with two gay buddies one of whom is sick with AIDs There's also half a dozen other characters with their own storylines including a Pastor who has an attraction to Tabitha Tabitha's boyfriend
