The Princess Bride by William Goldman

Into the Wild

Read The Princess Bride Online Free - 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.

It's amazing that I've never found time to read this book before. I have seen the movie, but it was years ago and I only really remember the one thing that everyone remembers: The real strength of this book is that is just ticks every box imaginable. It's a fairy tale, full of action, romance and...

First of all, anyone who's rated this less than 5 stars is just wrong, very wrong. I know this because I was recently instated "Master of all Opinions" where mine is the most rightest. :) The Structure I guess the real place to start with this book is with its structure. You may have noticed that t...

I must say that the humour in this book is quite special. ‘‘I must court her now,’’ said the Prince. ‘‘Leave us alone for a minute.’’ He rode the white expertly down the hill. Buttercup had never seen such a giant beast. Or such a rider. ‘‘I am your Prince and you will marry me,’’ Humperdinck sa...

I consider "The Princess Bride" as one of my all-time favorite films. I think I was about 11 when I first saw the movie and a score or more later, the love of Buttercup and Wesley still brings warmth to my heart. Besides this, how could I forget Inigo Montoya? Mandy Patinkin immortalized this cha...

Okay, I like the movie better than the book. I mean I love watching all of my characters! So There! Anyhoo, I'm adding some pictures from the book. There are a lot of them but I'm just going to add a few. I thought they were wonderful. On the inside front and back pages there is a map but I only...

I am one of the few people in the world who does not think the book is better than the movie here. There is an undercurrent of bitterness in this book that I find off-putting. I am given to understand by a friend that those elements--i.e., the autobiographical stuff in Goldman's own persona--are...

I’m sorry Kate’s favorite book, but I must destroy you. Two stars. Yep, I am one of those people. Cynical. Have no heart. Have no good taste in books. Just want mindless action and independent sword-wielding women as main characters. Don’t like overpowered men. Nor women, for that matter. Don’t b...

Find all of my reviews at: EVERY STAR THERE IS TO STAR!!!!!! Yeah, a little bit. It’s also the best book in the history of ever. Sure it has a little kissing but it also has pirates and bad guys and swordsmen and giants and I’m not writing a synopsis....
