Synopsis

The Princess Bride is a 1973 novel written by William Goldman. It was originally published in the United States by Harcourt Brace Jovanovich. The book combines elements of comedy, adventure, fantasy, romance and fairy tale. It is presented as if it were an abridgment of a work by S. Morgenstern, and Goldman's 'commentary' asides are constant throughout. It was made into a film of the same name in 1987 by Rob Reiner, and an attempt to adapt it into a musical was made by Adam Guettel.

This is an easy book to recommend. It can be appreciated on several levels. Most simply, it is an action filled romance, set in medieval times, chronicling tribulations a young farm boy who leaves home to make his fortune and so win the love of Buttercup. The plot is full of twists and turns, and while it's entirely suitable for young adults, the book shortly reveals itself as gently crafted sendup of both romance and adventure. Golding's finely crafted prose maintains your interest, and the humorous intent gradually builds. There are numerous great scenes ("For you see, I am also not left-handed" and "Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya" come to mind), and the dialog, while uneven, is at time sublime. While this is probably not great literature, and it may not make you a better person, it may very likely provide you with excellent entertainment. The movie adaptation is very well done, but it leaves out much of the subtlety and character development the Golding provides. The Princess Bride is a fun read.
