  • Quite a treat! Jul 18, 2013
    by AuntieBella

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the movie, so it stands to reason I would enjoy the book as well. William Goldman is an imaginative author.

    I enjoyed the movie "The Princess Bride" and
    decided to try the book. I was not disappointed. It is a very unusual treatment
    of a fairy tale that could be enjoyed by both
    adults and older children. I especially loved
    the way the author occasionally put into
    parentheses his own comments about the
    original story published years ago and his
    reasons for deleting certain "boring" parts.
    It was funny, romantic, action-filled and
    dramatic all at once. I enjoyed it very much.

  • Well worth it even if you have read the movie! Apr 20, 2007

    My fiance and I live a great distance from each other and regularly read aloud to each other in order to share the experience. We have read the Harry Potter series in the past - but I have to say that it is not nearly as much fun as reading this book out loud.
    Is the book very different from the movie? No - but it does provide a little more insight and a WHOLE lot more humor. It is just plain fun, and I can't wait to read it to my kids!
