A classic tale with a princess, true love, sword fights and adventure, with a twist!
What I liked
✅ Fezzik, Vizzini and Inigo were the stand-outs amongst a great cast of amusing, well-written characters
✅ very humorous, clever, playful and a little bit silly (in a good way)
✅ well-written, all-too-quotable, dialogue
What I didn't like ✖ the faux-autobiographical content of William Goldman interrupted the story too often, dragged on and on, and soured the enjoyment of the novel
✖ a long, drawn-out introduction before any of the story is told
✖ Buttercup's Baby (the short story included at the end of my edition) was nonsensical, rambling and didn't add anything to the narrative
Rating 3/5 🌟
Genre: fantasy, children's
Verdict: The movie was better than the book!
