Based on the Book

This week's feature is The Princess Bride by William Goldman, and I am excited to discover that we have the novel here at the library. The movie is a rather well-known comedic adventure released in the 80's, and has been well received by both guys and girls (despite the word "princess" appearing in the title.) The movie presents the story as a novel when the grandfather reads the book to his sick grandson, who at first doesn't want to hear the "sissy" story but soon realizes that the story is anything but sissy.

There are actually two versions of this book. The "good parts" edition, which I have read, is most similar to the movie. the book has several side comments about parts left out because they are "kissing scenes." :)
