My Review of The Emerald Burrito of Oz

This my review of The Emerald Burrito of Oz by John Skipp and Marc Levinthal, its short but sweet:

The Emerald Burrito of Oz tells the story of Gene from Los Angelos taking a trip to the land of Oz to visit his friend Aurora. You get the impression right away that Gene knows as much about as Oz as most of us probably do, and that would be the 1939 musical starring Judy Garland. This book is about as far away from that movie as you could get. And its absolutely brilliant. Once Gene crosses the gate into the strange world of Oz he is thrust into a situation that may very well spell the end of this happy go lucky world of weirdness. The story itself is told through journal entries between Gene, trying to survive while well over his head, and his friend Aurora who firmly plants herself into the forefront of the action. All the classic characters from the film are present, but you may have to look twice at a couple because you probably wont recognize them. Over all it has a uniqueness to it that will probably appeal to most fans of the bizarro genre.
