    1 thought on “Chemical Gardens”

    1. On a personal note, I go gay for the Wizard of Oz. It’s true. So a bizarro version of Oz written by Gina Ranalli was going to be up my alley anyway. Chemical Gardens isn’t a remake of Oz like Gregory Maguire’s “Wicked” series. It’s more of a bizarro translation. It’s as if Ms. Ranalli filtered the Oz story through her own twisted imagination and this is what came out.Filling in for Dorothy, Lion, Scarecrow, and Tin-Man is a punk band called Green Is the Enemy. They’re sent to an [...]

    2. So much fun to read. The whole thing was brain candy that you wish it was a movie and a comic and an action figure line.

    3. A punk-rock version of Baum’s “The Wizard of Oz” fairytale, Gina Ranalli’s “Chemical Gardens” shows us how “not punk” it is to get trapped in a children’s story. A splendid example of the uprising Bizarro genre, Ranalli’s work becomes the antithesis of the contemporary values taught in children’s literature. Children are taught to play by the rules and stay in line; thus, faltering means utter destruction. Ranalli’s cast of characters are adolescent punkrockers determined [...]

    4. This is the book to get if you loved the Wizard of Oz during your childhood and your tastes have become intensely more deranged since then.The book is a heck of a lot of fun. Along with me, Ranalli is part of the bizarro movement in fiction. It's comprised of authors doing some very strange things with literature. But above all, it's about entertaining the reader. And in a world where television, movies, and video games are king, this is a difficult feat. CHEMICAL GARDENS shines through.Ranalli' [...]

    5. This is the third book by Gina Ranalli that I've read and each one is totally different--straight-up, in-your-face apocalyptic horror ("Unearthed"), zombie story with some original twists and tweaks ("Praise the Dead"), and this little Alice-meets-Dorothy bizarro punk-rock homage, which is simply wonderful, an imaginative and tightly wound tale of weirdness involving a punk band, demons, gender bending, cherub bodyguards, giant killer rabbits, and one bad-ass 10-foot-tall Metal Priestess.Bizarro [...]

    6. This book was a fun read. Kind of Wizard of Oz meets dysfunctional Punk band. An ambitious punk band, thrust into a strange world, where each character has their own flaws messed up with a classic Oz character. This they must learn to deal with while on their quest to get home. The new traits always at odds with the "Punk" that they are.I enjoyed this, and would play again in this Garden.

    7. This book was beyond terrible. And i am a huge gina ranalli fan. Hard to believe this same author wrote suicide girls, mother puncher, peppermint twist, etc

    8. I really loved the simplicity of the writing style and the weird imaginationde for an easy and relaxing read.
