The Princess Bride by William Goldman

The Princess Bride : S. Morgenstern's Classic Tale Of True Love And High Adventure : The "Good Parts" Version, Abridged. By William Goldman.

This is a love story for all times with language and style more accessible if you find William Shakespeare's Tragedy of Romeo and Juliette a bit too difficult to get through. You might also appreciate Goldman's story full of passion, duels, miracles, giants, humor, and true love (with a happy ending) rather than Shakespeare's which concludes with the unnecessary deaths of star-crossed lovers and heartbreaking sorrow for all those involved. To all those who enjoy adventure, danger and everlasting love, I recommend this fantastic tale. Check catalog for availability.
