    1. Kinda a classic.No kinda about it The first of fourteen stories written by L Frank Baum is almost identical to the 1939 movie, and is the most familiar the other thirteen continue the story, and are very good children s tales, although they are a bit dated Of course, they were written a century ago, but the phrasing is old, and several unintended double entendres exist Still, enjoyable, even though by book 11 I I was ready to have done with it Perhaps I should have paced myself


    2. I ve loved the Oz books since I was a kid, so it was great to have the chance to buy them all in one digital volume and re read them It s amazing how elevated the language is compared to today s children s books I highly recommend these, especially if you ve only ever read The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Reading them all in a row does cast a light on some world building inconsistencies, but considering that Baum never intended to write so many, it s easy to understand how that happened.


    3. Tiring By the time I was finished I hated l Frank Baum, but then I read a biography that said he wrote all of the follow ups because of requests he had received from kids Maybe he hated Dorothy by the time he was sfinished.


    4. a super fun read.ok me back to my time as a child and the profound love I had for the Wizard of OzI hope my children love reading as much as I do, because this is the 1st series of book I will have them readGreat time.


    5. Read them I love these books, I am a adventure lover so I read all of them and loved every moment of them I would recommend this for all adventure lovers.


    6. The book is a great deal different from the 1939 film Lots content especially toward the end.I love the original color illustrations.


    7. And thus I finish reading the original series of Oz There were tons of books written later by other people but I figure this is quite enough It took me two years reading from the local library from pretty amazing reprint versions with the original artwork And it was worth reading and I wish I had read it earlier And I would have read it to my kids But on its own, separate from its obvious impact on the world, this series did not hold up to time and was generally unimpressive There was too much r [...]


    8. I rarely find a book that doesn t exceed it s adaptation to screen but this is the case here While popular in its time 1900 it pales in comparison to the classic movie of 1939 Still a worthwhile read if your curious to discover the inspiration behind the movie.


    9. I m truthfully angry while reading this and no longer masochistic enough to try and finish all 14 books To be fair, The Wizard of Oz might warrant 3 stars The rest is utterly ridiculous.


    10. This was fun to listen to on my ipod while swimming It has so many life lessons embedded in the wonderful story easy to see why it has become a classic.



    11. This was hard work to read I regretted my own vow to never leave a book unread The stories are a collection of mini stories in short stories if that makes sense Unusually for a childrens book there did not seem to be any morals within them.Some fantastical creatures described which are fit to fire the imagination.


    12. Silly, Entertaining readHope you can enjoy this as much as my son and I did This is an entertaining book for parents to read to their young children It deserves 5 stars for creativity.


    13. I have to admit, it was tiresome to get through all the books, but the first one is a classic Towards the last books it got very repetitious in their formula.



    14. Finished at last 6 months later It dipped a bit in the middle, around books 3 7 but picked up again after that.



    15. This e book collection of the Oz books is perfectly functional, and has some useful appendices in the back, but I really wish it had the John R Neill illustrations as well as the Denslow ones.




    16. It s a pretty daunting task to review a huge collection of works such as L Frank Baum s Oz books You could do this by reviewing them one by one, but I decided to not do this, and to do what you find here A sort of review in which I touch on themes as well as look at the different books I must also explain my 5 star rating of this collection because, obviously, I do not think all of these 14 books are worthy of 5 stars, as a matter of fact a couple might be no better than 2 in my humble opinion , [...]


    17. I decided to rate this book 3 stars because all the stories are great separately However, it gets repetitive and tiring after some stories and I was left with a feeling of overdose halfway through the book I had to stop reading it for over a year and I seriously considered dropping it, but then I picked up from where I had left and was able to finally finish it In short, the stories are great, but they would work a lot better if they were read as separate books, since that way you could read oth [...]


    18. Never too old for OzThe Wizard of Oz was one of my favorite movies and I still cherish the memory of receiving my first book I did not discover the rest of them until I was much older I will return to this book over and over.


    19. You re in for the long haul with this oneOver 30 hours of reading Wowzers And unfortunately I found myself getting bored the further the stories went Saying that though, my daughter and I still had fun reading it at bedtime so was probably worth it after all


    20. After years of seeing the movie, and after reading all of Maguire s modern Oz books, I had never read the Wonderful Wizard of Oz When I watched the movie The Witches of Oz I decided that I should finally read the source The movie hinted at other books, but it wasn t until after I read it that I found out that it was the first of 14 books written by L Frank Baum about Oz This book is a collection of all 14 of those books The Wonderful Wizard of OzThe Marvelous Land of OzOzma of OzDorothy and the [...]


    21. DOROTHY OZMA LOL THE FIRST ONE IS THE WEAKEST ONE THEY ARE GRATE, WEIRD BOOKS AND THE MOVIE S DID NOT REMOTELY DO THEM JUSTICE MAKE SURE YOU GET EDITIONS WITH THE ORIGINAL ILLUSTRATIONSC ME A BOOK YOU L VERY MUCH, EVEN IF IT S EMBARRASSING.OZMA OF OZ I STILL WANT A CHICKEN NAMED BILL.I READ ALL OF THE OZ BOOKS IN THE SUMMER BETWEEN FOURTH AND FIFTH GRADE AND IL D THEM SO MUCH ALL OF THE RECENT OZ ADAPTATIONS MAKE BB ME SO ANGY.I CAN ACTUALLY THINK OF FAR MOAR CHILDREN S BOOKS IL THAN TEEN BOOKS [...]


    22. Well I ve finally finished my trek through all of 14 of the Oz novels written by L Frank Baum If you ve seen The Wizard of Oz movie, you have an idea of how most of the stories go, but I think they would still be enjoyed by younger audiences Binge reading them in my opinion really highlights the similarities in the stories, so as an adult, it s probably best to dip into the collection now and again I think my favorite stories were The Tin Woodman of Oz and The Magic of Oz, as the initial premise [...]


    23. I had not read the Oz books in a very long time, but the recent anniversary of a loved one s death made me want to re read them I loved them just as much as I did when I was little, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to delve into a magical world full of mystery I ve always considered it to be a series designed to encourage girls to realize how strong they are, and that even if they do want to become a Princess someday they could still be incredible leaders with great strength It also embrac [...]


    24.

    25. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz I enjoyed the first book very much, even if once getting to a climatic scene it then skipped over it in just a few sentences My major problem in the story line is this Dorothy summoned the Winged Monkeys to get past the head butting people with no arms at the top of the hill She requests that they take her and her friends to the land of the Quadlings Surely if you are on a journey to the castle in the south you would ask them to take you all the way there Maybe I am ju [...]
