Wicked ~ Musical vs. Book?

I just saw Wicked last night. I had read the book prior to the musical. I want to know other's opinions on how they felt the book compared to the musical. Or if you've only read the book your expectations of the play. If you've only seen the show how likely are you to read the book. Thanks.

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker: The book I thought was fantabulous. I saw the musical post-book but I had listened to the music before I read the book. So in other words, I could take what I wanted from the songs I knew and compare them to the book before I was the musical. Even before I saw the musical I could tell the differences were huge. It's almost entirely different! I really enjoyed both book and show though... I just looked at them in different ways.
