The Princess Bride
S. Morgenstern's Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
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.”
This a one of those books you can read over and over again. The story is masterfully written and the plot is fully of everything a good action, comedy, and romance needs. You can't go wrong with Westley or his beautiful Princess Buttercup. Enjoy it; it's great!
A BRILLIANT tale
After seeing the movie, I simply had to read the book. And let me tell you that I was not let down. The descriptions of the characters are rich, filled with marvelous adjectives. Also, this is a book fit for any reader. It has so much more to offer than romance. It has mystery, comedy, fighting, torture, unusual creatures, and so much more. You won't regret reading this novel!!
