The Princess Bride by William Goldman

Synopsis

What happens when the most beautiful girl in the world marries the handsomest prince of all time and he turns out to be…well…a lot less than the man of her dreams?

As a boy, William Goldman claims, he loved to hear his father read the S. Morgenstern classic, The Princess Bride. But as a grown-up he discovered that the boring parts were left out of good old Dad’s recitation, and only the “good parts” reached his ears.

Now Goldman does Dad one better. He’s reconstructed the “Good Parts Version” to delight wise kids and wide-eyed grownups everywhere.

What’s it about? Fencing. Fighting. True Love. Strong Hate. Harsh Revenge. A Few Giants. Lots of Bad Men. Lots of Good Men. Five or Six Beautiful Women. Beasties Monstrous and Gentle. Some Swell Escapes and Captures. Death, Lies, Truth, Miracles, and a Little Sex.

In short, it’s about everything.

Why I Want To Read It

I’ve always told myself I would read this book and I think my randomizer sensed it because whoo hoo! First book pick 🙂 Maybe this will also turn me into a Fantasy fan

Why I’ve Yet To Read It

This is one of those books I added years ago in like 2008 and completely forgot about it on my TBR pile. I truly need to go through that list because there’s so many books I need to read.

So here we are 🙂 Whats one book on your TBR that you need to get to? Have you read The Princess Bride.

Happy Monday!

  1. I don’t even know if this is even on my TBR to be honest. But I remember watching the movie ages ago when I was in middle school (maybe?) and … I remember being really confused and wondering just WTF was going on and how could this be everyone’s favorite movie!? Haha I feel like I need to give it another go now that I’m an adult 😂
