Publisher Description

William Goldman's modern fantasy classic is a simple, exceptional story about quests—for riches, revenge, power, and, of course, true love—that's thrilling and timeless.

Anyone who lived through the 1980s may find it impossible—inconceivable, even—to equate The Princess Bride with anything other than the sweet, celluloid romance of Westley and Buttercup, but the film is only a fraction of the ingenious storytelling you'll find in these pages. Rich in character and satire, the novel is set in 1941 and framed cleverly as an “abridged” retelling of a centuries-old tale set in the fabled country of Florin that's home to “Beasts of all natures and descriptions. Pain. Death. Brave men. Coward men. Strongest men. Chases. Escapes. Lies. Truths. Passions.”

A must read for fans

I saw the movie first. Then I listened to Cary Elwes read his book about the making of the movie. With bits from many who tributed to it. This version has not only “the good bits” but Goldman’s notes on why he left some parts out and what he went through making the book. It is clearly the heart of the beast that Princess Bride to so many of us. Higly fantastic.
