The Princess BrideThe Princess Bride
by William Goldman

Genre:

William Goldman’s modern fantasy classic is a simple, exceptional story about quests — for riches, revenge, power, and, of course, true love — that’s thrilling and timeless.

Anyone who lived through the 1980s may find it impossible—inconceivable, even—to equate The Princess Bride with anything other than the sweet, celluloid romance of Westley and Buttercup, but the film is only a fraction of the ingenious storytelling you’ll find in these pages. Rich in character and satire, the novel is set in 1941 and framed cleverly as an “abridged” retelling of a centuries-old tale set in the fabled country of Florin that’s home to “Beasts of all natures and descriptions. Pain. Death. Brave men. Coward men. Strongest men. Chases. Escapes. Lies. Truths. Passions.”

Darren, I am jealous. You are about to read a remarkable and hellaciously funny book for the first time. My first time was 1977 or 78 in a bookstore behind St Matthews Church in Kenosha, WI, and it has been a favorite ever since.

The movie only prepared you a little for what you are going to experience. Enjoy! Wish I could relive my first time… :)

I'd seen the movie many times but only read the book this last year – hysterical!

Kevin Payne July 22, 2012 at 12:45 pm

WTF?! It was RIGHT THERE on my bookshelf at UofH the entire year we shared a dorm room in 78-79, and you never picked it up and read it? Good lord, man, *I* read all three of the then extant Dragonriders of Pern series because they were on your bookshelf!!!

Ross Schacher July 22, 2012 at 1:43 pm

Kevin, I'm embarrassed to admit this but I'm not even sure where or when I got my copy!! I'd seen it on the shelf for years and finally picked it out and read it. I still don't know how long it was there!

Roxie Cox McBride July 22, 2012 at 12:25 pm

My very favorite book of all time! Everyone should have a copy.

Kim Akers July 22, 2012 at 12:54 pm

One of my favorite movies, too.
