The Princess Bride by William Goldman

What happens when the most beautiful girl in the world marries the handsomest prince of all time and he turns out to be...well...a lot less than the man of her dreams?

As a boy, William Goldman claims, he loved to hear his father read the S. Morgenstern classic, The Princess Bride. But as a grown-up he discovered that the boring parts were left out of good old Dads recitation, and only the good parts reached his ears.

Now Goldman does Dad one better. Hes reconstructed the Good Parts Version to delight wise kids and wide-eyed grownups everywhere.

Whats it about? Fencing. Fighting. True Love. Strong Hate. Harsh Revenge. A Few Giants. Lots of Bad Men. Lots of Good Men. Five or Six Beautiful Women. Beasties Monstrous and Gentle. Some Swell Escapes and Captures. Death, Lies, Truth, Miracles, and a Little Sex.

In short, its about everything.

Featuring giants, duels, man-eating swamp rats and, of course, true love, Goldman's funny and poignant lampoon of the fairy-tale tradition has inadvertently become a classic of the genre. Mythologised by the author as the 'Good Parts' version of a magnificent book by the 'great Florinese writer', S. Morgenstern, The Princess Bride is a gripping tongue-in-cheek fairy tale.

Morgenstern had written a boring royal history that William Goldman had abridged into a masterpiece. I realized my mistake. There was no Florin. But it was a rather depressing thought. Framing devices can be awkward, weak, but so many of us were fooled, or allowed ourselves to be fooled. Goldman was. Part of the brilliance of the framing is that Goldman never once wavered.
