The Princess Bride

#34 S. Morgenstern: The Princess Bride (William Goldman) (December 2007)

After having first attempted this book in perhaps September or October, I finally read it. I'd been reading it too slow and, figuring the movie would help me gain more interest, I bought the dvd. However, the dvd sat on a shelf beside the book for a couple months before I got around to watching it. Finally there came a quiet Saturday in late November on which I watched the dvd. I picked the book up again the Sunday before last, and while I haven't had much time to get reading done, I finished it this afternoon. I'm just reading an extra bit in the back of the book that takes place after this story.

The movie and the book are one and the same, aren't they? I've never read or watched a book/movie pair that had so much identical stuff... but there a few things you can skip in the book and still it's a great story.
