Transcript of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz"

"The Wonderful Wizard of Oz"
The story takes place around the 1900's and the story takes place in Kansas, The Land of Oz, Munchkin City, and Emerald City. The settings of the book impact the story because the settings create different types of moods and thoughts while reading. If the setting is dark and dreary it will create a dull and dreary mood. The setting also impacts the plot of the story because by the setting, it plots out from there what is going to happen next. The setting also impacts what kind of characters are in the story. Just like how in a cornfield, which was the setting, Dorthy found the Scarecrow which was a character.
I know that this book is a fantasy because this book contains magic in it used that couldn't really be done in real life. I can also tell because the settings of the book are made up. Then there is a happy ending which of course always happens in all fantasy books. Some fantasy elements this novel possesses is that the plot is pretty much predictable, there are animals that act like people, there is magic in the book, and there are things in the book that could never happen in real life.
Some of the themes expressed in the book was friendship and home. Friendship was expressed in the book from where Dorthy, Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, Cowardly Lion, were friends. Them working together and sticking together shows how important friendship is, Home is expressed by Dorthy just wanting nothing more than just being home with her family and relatives. Even though the places Dorthy visits are magical and luxurious, Dorthy just wants to be back at home. Other themes expressed was courage and perseverance. The lesson or message the author was trying to convey was what ever the circumstance might be, there is no place like home.

Main Characters- Dorthy, The Scarecrow, The Tin Woodman, The Cowardly Lion, The Wizard of Oz, Wicked Witch of the West, and Toto
The major conflict in the story is how to get Dorthy and Toto back to Kansas. The conflict affects the characters in the novel by the characters are all trying to do something about Dorthy getting back to Kansas. Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and Cowardly Lion are all characters that have affected the conflict to help Dorthy to get back to Kansas. The conflict affected the Wicked Witch of the West by her, wanting to try to keep Dorthy from destroying her and make Dorthy work for her. The Wizard was affected by the conflict by the Wicked Witch being destroyed which helped Dorthy get back to Kansas.
I would rate this book an eight on a scale from 1-10. I would give this book an eight because the imagination put into the book was interesting and exciting but some parts of the book were very predictable which made it not as suspenseful in some parts. I did like how the author came up with a lot of good characters who each portrayed their owned character trait. All of the places the characters visited were also very interesting to read about.
