Before reading this novel, someone tells me it is very interesting, so I started to read this book with expectation and curiosity. And after Iwas through with it, I was full of respect to the author.

  The novel described a girl, called Dorothy, was blew into an unfamiliar land which was far away from her hometown. Then she tried to find the way home and finally she made it. During her journey, she experienced a lot.

  To be honest, the author is really full of intelligence. His thought is so special that the plots are absolutely beyond my imagination. But it didn't surprise me when Dorothy killed a wicked witch by accident, because every novel could start a story with such unusual coincidence. However, the next happened were really out of my expectation. First of all, Dorothy's comrades were deadfully strange. For example, the scarecrow could speak ,walk and think, it is surprising, after all, his head was stuffed with straw, and just with eyes , nose as well as mouth painted on it to represent a face. It was even more surprising when changed new straws, he was still himself. He went to find the Great OZ because he wanted the Great OZ to give him some brain so that he wouldn't be laughed at by others and could do anying like a real man. The second was Tin Woodman,and his experiences were miserable. He fell in love with a beautiful girl and worked hard for their marriage, but the wicked with wanted to take them apart, so she cut off his legs ,arms head and heart one by one through using her magic. However, he was rescued by tinsmith,who made everything he lost out of tin but heart. So he was urgent to get a new heart. The third was a lion, and in our thought ,lions were expected to be brave and full of right, but this lion was as coward as a mouse, so he joined Dorothy to get some courage.

  The most wonderful thing beyond my thought was the Great OZ. It was said he was so great that was capable of doing everything.But actually, he was a humbug.This really disappointed them,because their wishes might not be satisfied. However, the humbug managed it because he knew they have already got what they wanted during the journey. Here were some evidences. When every time they met trouble, it was scarecrow that came up with good ideas and helped them out; When every time they met monstrous beasts, it was the lion that stepped ahead and protected them. Besides, the Tin Woodman was the one who was always kind to small animals and was sure to cry when he saw others' misery. The only they didn't obtain was confidence. So the humbug gave them confidence by using tricks.

  There are some sentences I want to share with you:"NO matter how dreary and gray our homes are, we people of flesh and blood would rather live there than in any other country,be it ever so beautiful. There is no place like home." "Experience is the only thing that brings knowledge and the longer you are on earth the more experience you are sure to get." "There is no living thing that is not afraid when it faces danger. The true courage is in facing danger when you are afraid."

  This book really worth reading.
