Staff Reviews


Whenever someone asks me for a book recommendation for an adult that doesn’t really enjoy reading, I recommend The Princess Bride. It is the ultimate adult fairytale that people of all ages and all reading levels will love. And, the movie is an exact adaptation of the novel. This book is just as entertaining and classic and the film. It will have you laughing and crying along!

Praise For…


“[Goldman’s] swashbuckling fable is nutball funny . . . A ‘classic’ medieval melodrama that sounds like all the Saturday serials you ever saw, feverishly reworked by the Marx Brothers.” — Newsweek
 
“One of the funniest, most original, and deeply moving novels I have read in a long time.” — Los Angeles Times
