Review on book “The Princess Bride” by William Goldman

5stars. I watched the movie first and liked it so much that I started reading the book while the end credits were still on the screen. I kept hearing the movie lines “Inconceivable!” and “My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die!” These words were in my head, and I couldn’t wait to come across them in the book. It took quite a while, though – more time than I thought – to get to them as well as to the other great parts (which are basically the whole movie). I didn’t expect the story about the book that granddad read to his grandson would develop so much, neither did I predict enhanced irony, but I absolutely loved it! I enjoyed the “extra” parts and reveled in the author’s creativity. The book is remarkably extraordinary and hilarious. I can only imagine how much fun the author had while writing it.

As for the drawbacks, surely they exist. Some parts of the book looked for me too ambiguous and artificial.

Overall, the book is richer than the movie, and I definitely recommend reading it, especially if you have enjoyed the film. In case you haven’t seen the movie, better watch it first to get an idea of the style of this story and see whether it is your cup of tea or not.
