Okay so....The Princess Bride movie was my all time favorite movie as a child. So this is why I picked up the book to read in the first place.
I could picture and hear the cast of the movie as I read which in this case was actually a good thing.
This is my one and only time that I found a movie way better then a book.
I enjoyed the book a lot, but ONLY the actual story. And I decided against reading the Buttercups baby portion, and I wasn't fussy of the William Goldman stuff that he inserted here and there and in fact skipped and skimmed over a good portion of his writings in the beginning of the book so I could start right in where the story (from the movie) actually starts. I find that Goldman rambles way to much in the book taking away from the actual Princess Bride story.
BUT with that being said, I picked up the book for the Princes Bride story so I just skipped the Goldman abridged parts and all was well in the world again.
