The Princess Bride

The Princess Bride
S.Morgenstern's Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure
by William Goldman


Loved it! I absolutely loved this book. I saw the movie, countless times as a child, and so when the book was recommended to me I was not too interested. I know what that book is about...I am not really into that kind of stuff.

Well, I am so glad that I decided, on a whim, to check the book out. I loved it! I loved the humor, the love story, the heroes, the villains, everything. Everything except the ending. I wished it went on and on. It was a fun read, very different and refreshing from the books I usually find myself reading. In one of the reviews I read on the book, Stephenie Meyer, the author of the Twilight Series said that The Princess Bride should be a required book for everyone in the English language. YES!!! She is right. I will read this book again and again!
