Reviews - What do customers think about The Complete Book of Oz?
Great stories in a sub-par format Dec 29, 2007
The Complete Book of Oz offers all of Frank L. Baum's "Oz" stories in one volume, but still leaves a lot to be desired. While the stories are all included, unedited, this over-sized volume omits all illustrations. If you're looking for the William Wallace Denslow-drawn illustrations from the original books, they're not here. Instead this volume packs in all the stories in a plain text-only format. The beautiful cover art is simply a tease for what you won't get in this volume.
The layout of the pages is somewhat sloppy too. With a strange margin width, pages are visually text heavy. The stories are laid out in sequential order with no breaks or images between. The only way to tell what book you're reading is to flip backwards to each book's table to contents, as the pages' headers do not reference the individual book titles.
The content is still the classic, top-notch fantasy fiction we've all come to know as children. For those that only know of Oz through the 1939 MGM film, you will be shocked and delighted to know that the history and people of this fictional land are much bigger and richer than the screen portrays. Further stories expand on themes introduced in the first book as well as bring in a variety of characters you've never heard of before.
This is a great value for someone that wants to read all the books without having to chase down the individual volumes. Children will NOT enjoy this format, since the inside resembles a college text book more than a storybook. I'd only suggest this particular edition for adult readers or for literary study.
