The Princess Bride

Goldman, William(1998)
The Princess Bride

Did you know the movie “The Princess Bride” was adapted from William Goldman`s novel of the same name? Within the first lines of the introduction, Goldman creates a sham autobiography of himself, an imaginary folklorist named S. Morgenstern, and a sweeping fairy tale from the land of Florin. This is the story of true love between Buttercup and Westley, along with the adventures of a colorful cast of characters, all of which Goldman claims to have culled from a drier and denser volume by Morgenstern. This no romance novel, though! It is an epic full of swashbuckling swordfights, treachery and laugh-out-loud moments. If you’re looking for a book that will both thrill and amuse you, The Princess Bride is the book for you.

Reader's comments about this book

When I read this book 10 years ago, I was enthralled. You will want to run to the library to read everything else William Goldman has written. His other books are all good reading too!
