This is one of those extraordinarily rare cases when the film adaptation sometimes prompts people to say the uncommon phrase “The movie is better than the book.

Danger awaits the characters at every chapter and the obstacles they are faced with and their ways of dealing with them are peculiar.
Even if you try to, you will not be able to take the story seriously More than half of the characters a Okay, I like the movie better than the book The Princess Bride I mean I love watching all of my characters! So There! Anyhoo, I'm adding some pictures from the book The Princess Bride 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 added one part of the map so you can get the idea =) Happy Reading! Mel ♥MY BLOG: Melissa Martin's Reading List I am one of the few people in the world who does not think the book The Princess Bride is better than the movie here There is an undercurrent of bitterness in this book The Princess Bride that I find offputting I am given to understand by a friend that those elementsi.
, the autobiographical stuff in Goldman's own personaare actually fictional But I found that they soured my enjoyment of the story they framed I couldn't enjoy the writing of a writer who seemed as misanthropic and hateful as Goldman came off to me TPB is still a great bookbetter than three stars, but I couldn't quite bring myself to give it four.
Stick to the movie It has the opposite problem, but you can always fast forward through the saccharine Fred Savage bits.

0 stars HOW AMAZINGLY GOOD IS THIS book The Princess Bride YOU ASK?.
so good it is almost This is a literary treasure and one that I can not recommendhighly Let me start by saying that prior to reading this book The Princess Bride I had probably seen the movie version a dozen times or so and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!! I only mention this so that you know where I'm coming from in case you are not a fan of the movie as I think if you like one you will like the other and, conversely, if you didn’t like the movie, the book The Princess Bride may not appeal to you as much As for the book, I was AMAZED at what a superb adaptation of the novel the movie was Along with the Lord of the Rings trilogy and No Country for Old Men, this may be the best adaptation of a classic novel that I have ever come acr
If you love the movie, read The Princess Bride the book The Princess Bride and don't let yourself get bogged down in the long, offbeat intro (Skim it if you need to.
) You'll get a lot of background history on the various characters, which can be extremely funny, and a little poignant The movie is in large part very true to the book, but William Goldman has a dry, satirical sense of humor that doesn't entirely come through in the movie (The part about the Greatest Kisses Ever cracks me up every time.
)But it's still about Beasts of all natures and des It's amazing that I've never found time to read The Princess Bride this book The Princess Bride 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 The Princess Bride is that is just ticks every box imaginable It's a fairy tale, full of action, romance and revenge, and it has that timeless quality that the best fairy tales seem to carry It was published in the 1970s but it feels like it should be a thousand years old, passed down from generation to generation It's nonstop adventure, comedy gold and full of some of the most memorable characters I've ever had the pleasure of reading about.
Goldman's writing style for this novel works so surprisingly well For one, it's such an unusual idea to write a retelling of a story by a fictional author Goldman claims his father read The Princess Bride him the S Morgenstern classic as a child and then proceeds to t

But that's also the genius of this book The Princess Bride You see, S Morgenstern's Classic doesn't actually exist, only this abridged, Good Parts version, created wholly by William Goldman This may not be the first time I expound upon the genius of this narrative.
