    This book sounds wonderful! I’ve watched the movie numerous times and LOVE it. I don’t know why I’ve never read the book or even thought about doing so. But now it’s on my tbr list!

    Thanks for a great review!

    Yay! Yes, it was silly and I’m glad I read it too.

    Oh boy. Now I feel the need to read this book. The movie was so fun! But you’ve made it one of your Favorite Books of All Time, so I am feeling like I’ve missed out on something really good…

    I’m also glad I read it (I think), because it was quite a novel way of writing a story.

    Fooling the reader into thinking there was a longer book by S. Morgenstern, and the interruptions by the author during the story, were things I hadn’t encountered before.

    But the interruptions also bothered me a lot and in the end, I didn’t really enjoy the story all that much.

    My review (of the whole book) is here: http://leeswammes.wordpress.com/2010/11/02/the-princess-bride-by-william-goldman/

    I really enjoyed this except for the intro and added ending. It’s hard to categorize, isn’t it?

    The movie is one of my top 5 favorite movies of all time, literally…and I’ve always wondered if I would enjoy the book as much as I do the movie. Your review makes it sound as if I would, so I’m definitely going to seek out a copy!
    Hope you’ll stop by my review when you can.

    Different strokes for different folks, I suppose, because I couldn’t stand the book. Love the movie, though!

    So glad you enjoyed it! I was happy to finally read the book. I’ve been meaning to for years. I agree that Goldman’s asides really added to the book.
