Ok, so for those of you not in the know, this book is fantastic, but a little confusing to explain. First of all, William Goldman--writer of Butch Cassidy and the like--wrote this book. Some people get confused at that, thinking that he just edited the work of another author, but don't fall for it. The other author, S Morganstern, is a fictional author. In a way, that makes this novel a book within a book. The author creates a fake story of his own childhood in which his father read him stories from the make-believe novel. Now that he's a grown author, he's taking it upon himself to release and edited version that he calls the "Good Parts" version. I'm not sure if that cleared things up for you or not, but oh well.

About the content I'll say this: it is remarkably close to the film. Goldman wrote the screenplay as well, so that's to be understood, but what really amazed me was how he managed to fit so much of the book into the film without overburdening it with exposition or silliness. A lot of the dialog is straight off the novel's pages, and even some of the subtler story elements managed to find their way on screen (Inigo & Fezzik's rhyming game, for instance). Still, as with every novel, there's so much more to be found than can fit into a movie. I'd definitely say, if you're a fan of the film, you'll love the book. It's like watching an extended version of an old classic. ( )

It's quirky and funny, this book has had me at OMG! I've enjoyed the poetic prose, filled with engaging plots though predictable at some point. Definitely a treat to read this, a breezy one at that. This is a classic you should not missed!

Here's my full review:

1. Westley was clearly written with Young Paul Newman in mind.
2. I continue to feel bad about not "getting" The Princess Bride. ( )

I expected more of a straight fantasy novel, or at most the back-and-forth between a kid and his grandfather the way they did it in the movie. I did *not* expect to hear about the intricacies of local Italian politics and why they're boring or about the author's personal life. Things that are decidedly not meant for kids (especially the introduction). Very meta. Is it weird that I still want to read this to my kids, but without the meta-ness? Is that the point?? Whoa... ( )

Let me down at the end. It just got boring - already knew the story, but none of the good classic lines and moments from the film made it into the book. It's like he was trying too hard to make things seem like an adaptation.

However, the style was excellent, the back story and extended time with the characters was great, and Goldman's interruptions were spot on. It only suffers in that it's the same story only without some of the charm of the film.

Now, if Goldman were to write Buttercup's Baby and EXTEND his characters, I would be very interested to read that work. I hope he does. ( )

The book is clearly a witty, affectionate send-up of the adventure-yarn form, which Goldman obviously loves and knows how to manipulate with enormous skill.
