I am not a fan of the lion. In the original oz books he is obnoxiously optimistic. In this, Gregory Maguire seems to have overcorrected and madr him too bitter to be likeable. That being said the lion doesn't start out that way and only gradually as he grows up does he become so whiny, so at least there is some explonation. I found the other characters much more compelling and enjoyed the book overall.
