Lost - Gregory Maguire, Douglas Smith ...that would be Lost by Gregory Maguire... not the TV show, which I still have never seen. Oi.For the record, I am an ardent fan of Mr. Maguire. I've read Wicked a few times as well as several of his other books. I love his style, his gusto, his wit.I did not, however, love Lost. It focused too long on self-centered plot points. It was disjointed, and spectacularly dull, and ridiculously circular... I have never spent so much time on a book where the main narrator did absolutely nothing but walked around, listening to knocks in the wall, and wondering what happened to her absent cousin. Boring. It's a waste of Maguire's skill, and I feel sorry that he polluted his oeuvre with it.I could be more tactful about this... however, this was the title I chose for a book group of which I am a part of, and I am terribly embarrassed to have chosen something so... shudder. It wasn't worth the time to read it, and I apologize to my lady friends for having chose it.1 out of 5 stars. Blech. I have scant few books left to read of Maguire, so I know the rest of his cannon is bigger, and better than this... but... just blah.- review courtesy of www.bibliopunkk.net
