Journal Entry 1 by Vroomfondel from Leeds, West Yorkshire United Kingdom on Sunday, July 02, 2006 synopsis:
"Studded with hilariously anachronistic one-liners, this fantasy aims to teach its readers the important lesson that "life isn't fair," by placing considerable obstacles in the way of the romance between Westley, a talented farmboy who later assumes a somewhat more dashing and mysterious identity, and Buttercup, a sweet, dimwitted, world-record-breaking beauty who becomes engaged to the local prince."

What a good book! I'd never heard of The Princess Bride until three or four years ago. Then I went to see a friend who's obsessed with the filn of the book and we watched it twice in an evening. The book has everything you could ever want: passion, cunning, humour, action and Inigo Montoya uttering that famous line!

I shall like to read the original Morgenstern version of the tale that William Goldman abridged for us here ;)
