      THE REVIEWWhy this book?I always been a fan of anything of Oz in general so I thought why not read the original Oz booksWhat I thoughtThis was one hell of a journey!! Not only do you see Oz in these books but you see other magical countries like one that snows popcorn, and one that lies the Gnome King. These books are full of fantastic characters; like the famous Scarecrow of Oz, The Patchwork girl Scraps, The shaggy Man, Princess Ozma, Dorothy and so many others. Each book you get spend time wi [...]

      I have gone out of my way to rate this particular Collection because not all the mobile versions are well edited. This one has indexes for every book and displays all the relevant content. For example, how frustrating is it to get to the description of the notes about Tic Toc in the third book to find the text missing because it is an image in the original books? This version has the text. If you want the Oz books compiled on your shelf in one book, until they come out with one containing the or [...]

      I love the classic film and as a parent, had seen it some hundred plus times over the years, thanks mainly to a daughter who was obsessed with it at one point. I had read the first book when I was much younger, seeking more of the color and pageantry and spectacle of the movie and remember being vaguely disappointed. That's what happens when Hollywood magic fills your imagination. I saw this complete collection on r recently, read the great reader reviews of the edition, and frankly, the low pri [...]

      Thanks for the nook lend Mychael! Very much like the Narnia books in the easy, deceptively simplistic style of writing. As much as I enjoyed the lighthearted, breezy tone of the book perhaps it wasn't the best idea to try and read the whole thing through (over the course of two weeks more or less). Towards the end the stories became more contrived, big surprise there. The little notes by the author speaking to his child readers were appealingly whimsical at first but became more and more tiresom [...]

      I am such a huge fan of the entire Oz series by L. Frank Baum. Other authors have tried to continue the series and it just isn't the same. I've read them all, some are better than others, hands down my favorite is the Tin Woodman of Oz. There is some carry-over in story line from book to book, but each stands alone as it's own story. They can be read out of order (that's how I did it as a kid) w/ no difficulty.

      The myth of eternal return concealed in a children tale.

    • Erica says:

      I’ve read _The Wonderful Wizard of Oz_ a couple of times, yet I can’t seem to find all the social/political commentary everyone seems to think is there. In the sequels, though, it’s pretty obvious. I think the sequels delve into slightly more adult themes under the guise of children’s fantasy than _Wizard_. Sure, _Wizard_ had live inanimate objects (the scarecrow and the tin man), but _The Marvelous Land of Oz_ takes it to a new level: Jack Pumpkinhead, the saw horse, and the weird anima [...]

      The 1st book is VERY different from the movie! This was a great read.I have not read the other books yet.I started one and wasn't in to it.I really just wanted to read the 1st one.So I am calling it done!

    • Andy Angel says:

      picked up the complete set of Oz books on for Kindle for just £0.72 (yup, 72 pence for 15 books) that's what I call a result.

    • Misfit says:

      A whopping $.99 on Kindle. No pics like in the originals though :/

      *Note: I would read one Oz story after every other book I read this year. It was a great way to break up some of the more "adult" reading I was doing. My average rating for all 14 stories is 4.142857.1- The Wonderful Wizard of Oz - 5 starsSince I'm familiar with the movie, I was pleasantly surprised at the parts that weren't in there: the Queen of the Field Mice, the Porcelain Town, the Witch of the North, the fact that the flying monkeys were actually good. And the Emerald City wasn't really gr [...]

      I've been reading this over the past 5 years. it's a noble series darker than I had imagined, especially after having watched MGM's resounding The Wizard of Oz many times from childhood on. The Wizard carried a pistol, the Wicked Witch of the West sent a horde of wolves to tear Dorothy to pieces and a hive of bees to sting her eyes out. There are even books written in blood. The fourteen books in the series have the same style of plot, usually involving a rescue of some sorts. There is no romanc [...]

    • Jadie says:

      Wow, finally finally done. Were these amazing books? No. Did I get a better sense of Baum, as a (children's) author, by the end? Absolutely. His opinions on a multitude of subjects ranging from higher education to wealth accumulation to what it means to be a decent person are not-so-subtly scattered throughout all of these books. Perhaps it is more subtle if you're a child. :)Everything is a fast read, and while I would not say that each of the stories is repetitive necessarily, they are not gri [...]

    • Joy says:

      I only got through about half. I probably would have enjoyed it more as a kid but as an adult I found it repetitive and not fun after the first 3 stories or so. And I generally enjoy children's literature.

      Really long time in the land of Oz

    • Audrey says:

      I read the first book many years ago as and loved it. When I discovered the entire series in a Kindle version I was quite pleased. The rest of the books are as charming as the first. I noticed a few discrepancies but in a book of fairy tales do they really matter? Anyone who hasn't outgrown a children's love for fairytales will be delighted with this book.

    • Edward Davies says:

      01. THE WIZARD OF OZFor many this is considered the best and, outside of the USA, only Oz book. Many people don't realise just how many of these books there were, and this is the one with the most consistant plot (if any - some of them don't have a plot).02. THE MARVELOUS LAND OF OZFor a kids book that's 100 years old, this has a pretty clever conceit to the progression of the story. Not to spoil things but the main character is far more important to the future of the Oz books than first appeara [...]

      Really fun to read so many tales of Oz that I had no idea existed! I also really enjoyed L. Frank Baum's biography, and learning about his feminist leanings. Viewed through this lens, his tales are quite progressive for his time. The recent movie seems like it deviates from his original themes and intention horribly (he never included romantic love as a plot device in his books because he thought children wouldn't be interested in that, and he always had strong and independent female characters) [...]

      Since becoming a Kindler, I've made an effort to read books I somehow missed in youth. These include Lord of the Flies, My Antonia, and Of Human Bondage, books most read in high school. And what the heck, I thought, I may as well read a few I should have read when even younger. So while some read the shady Gray books on eReaders because bystanders can't see the covers, I read Mr. Popper's Penguins, The Secret Garden, and all 14 of L. Frank Baum's Oz books. Reading one of these every few books, I [...]

      A childhood favorite re-visited.Is the story as good as I remember? – YesWhat ages would I recommend it too? – Five and up. Length? – About two weeks worth of stories.Characters? – Memorable, several characters.Setting? – Fantasy, alternate dimensions.Written approximately? – 1900 - 1920.Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? – Ready to read more.Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? Yes. Many children today will be confused that the characte [...]

      From Book 2, The Marvelous Land of Oz:As they passed the rows of houses they saw through the open doors that men were sweeping and dusting and washing dishes, while the women sat around in groups, gossiping and laughing."What has happened?" the Scarecrow asked a sad-looking man with a bushy beard, who wore an apron and was wheeling a baby-carriage along the sidewalk."Why, we've had a revolution, your Majesty as you ought to know very well," replied the man; "and since you went away the women hav [...]

    • Tommy Grooms says:

      I've only read the first five of fifteen stories in this volume.I was initially concerned when I read L. Frank Baum's introduction to the first book: "Modern education includes morality; therefore the modern child seeks only entertainment in its wonder tales and gladly dispenses with all disagreeable incident . . . [The Wonderful Wizard of Oz] aspires to being a modernised fairy tale, in which the wonderment and joy are retained and the heartaches and nightmares are left out." Baum unfortunately [...]

    • A. says:

      Baum's Oz books were some of my favorite as a child, imaginative and insane and full of overwrought, terrible wordplay. Part of that was Oz itself and part was the books' age: I felt like I could time travel to the life and mind of a child in the 1910s. I read them now, and Baum was not very good at constructing plots. Or, rather, I get the impression he had no need for an book-long story arc so long as something exciting was always happening. The books tend to blur into one another, as they all [...]

    • Brandon Kessler says:

      I really tried to give the Wizard of Oz a chance. I did. Since the Wizard of Oz is a major pop-culture icon, I though I should see the source material. That was a mistake. The first book was interesting enough, and had the same vibe as Through the looking glass, with a vibrant and kooky world, an insane plot, and oddball characters. The writing is definitely early 20th century which just adds a little challenge of figuring out what older turns-of-phrase meant, or references to tools or people th [...]

      I'm a huge Oz fan. Unusually for me, I've been re-reading theseat's something I rarely do. However, I am planning to write something about Oz myself, and I wanted to see them from the perspective of the piece and to get all the details right.I have to point out that this ASIN is going to the wrong version. The cover shown here is for another edition (which I also own), and which is no longer available. Their contents are also different. What I'm re-reading are the "Famous Fourteen", the fourteen [...]

    • Ali says:

      This was a solid series. I would definitely consider reading these books to my kids because that is truly who Baum wrote these books for. Forget any veiled symbolism you might have heard about them (especially the first one). These books are fun, silly, quirky, bizarre, and don't make you worry too long when they occasionally take a dark turn or two. Reading all 14 in a row did get to wear a bit thin, I have to say. They definitely got a bit repetitive. If you have ever wanted to know a bit more [...]

    • P. says:

      Great classic series from Frank Baum. It's definitely much scarier than one would imagine for books that are meant for children. But it has a great sweetness and even the evildoers are generally not too heavily punished throughout the series. The main draw of the Oz Series is the characters, which vary and are really amazing in description and personality. And it's refreshing to see strong female leads for a change. In fact, the world of Oz is quite dominant in female leaders, from Dorothy to Oz [...]

      Everyone has seen the movie The Wizard of Oz. However, few people today know the actual book that the move was based on. Fewer people know there were a number of books in the series.

      I've been a huge Oz fan since my early teen years, and I am a collector of the vintage books, and fan, still. This series is wonderful for the young and the young at heart. I love reading them with my children. For me the stories never get old. Some of the books in the series are better than others (I just chose this one, since it has all 14 books in one). But all of them are magical, whimsical, witty, and worth reading. Oh and an added bonus, in my eyes, are the illustrations by John R. Neill ( [...]
