Cute but abridged
This is a great book, but it is abridged. I would really like the unabridged version.
This book is abridged
I've noticed that nowhere on this page does it mention that this is an abridged version of William Goldman's abridgement of S. Morgenstern's Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure, The Princess Bride. So, buyer beware, if you were expecting the entire book, you will be dissapointed.
Actually this version IS abridged. I'm not talking about the fictional abridged version of Morgensterns's book, I'm talking about an actual abridgment of Goldmen's book. The unabridged would be a great deal longer than 2 1/2 hours and sadly, it has not been made yet. Having read the full book and listened to this, I would suggest you just deal with the printed version and don't waste your time on the audio.. It is not anywhere near the clever, sarcastic, hilarious book you are thinking of...
