Review: The Princess Bride by William Goldman

THREE STARS

I really enjoyed the humour in this book. I loved Fezzik–all the characters, really. Unfortunately, I can’t help finishing it and feeling disappointed. It just didn’t feel complete to me. I mean, there was no real ending to what I read, so I guess there’s no getting around that. A friend of mine adores this book. It’s her favourite of all time, so I think I went into it expecting so be so blown out of the water that I’d never recover.

It was fun. I enjoyed the anecdotes and little notes in the abridged version, and it was really the silliness combined with the darker elements (torture, death, etc.) that kept me going.
