You may have heard of The Princess Bride, most likely the movie. How it is also a book, and that book, like the movie, is a story within a story. In the book, Goldman talks of how it is an abridged version of S. Morgenstern's novel. However, this is not the case. The character of S. Morgaestern, and the fictionalized version of William Goldman are just that, fiction. This adds another layer to the story of action, adventure and romance. The main focus is, of course, Westley and Buttercup, two young lovers torn apart and reunited. Dangers and delights are abound in this novel, along with a fair share of humor. It is a timeless tale, and one told very well by Mr. Goldman, who happens to be a fabulous author. I fell in love with this story as a child, and I have continued to love it all my life. Read this story, and you may just fall in love too.
Note: this is a movie, and the movie is just as good as the book, so watch it. But don't forget that the movie is told by a grandfather READING A BOOK to his grandson. Read this book please, it's one of the best ever written.
