    " The Princess Bride by William Goldman is the basis for the film and the subject of countless blogs and nerd references. Goldman is most known for his television and film adaptations (Valley of the Dolls)and I was surprised the first time I read the book. It is a love story on several levels. The movie adaptation omits the love of a father for his son. The distance that prevents a son from understanding the gift his father is trying to give him and the struggle of a father to give something immortal to his son. Don't get me wrong I love the film but this book is a lovely and deeper love story. "

    " A good read, did not care for the ending, but that is just me I suppose! "

    " Better than the movie, obviously! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nadine | 11/7/2013

    " Loved it, witty, dark, clever. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adelarina | 10/10/2013

    " Some parts of this book have stuck with me.. The rest was a bit odd. But strangely beautiful "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fatma Luka | 9/22/2013

    " I loved it! I thought it was hilarious :D and the adventures are cool. Buttercup, Fezzik, Inigo, and Westley are amazing and fun characters. A very riveting book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn Capern | 9/18/2013

    " You haven't read this book? Inconceivable! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 8/2/2013

    " Filled with tongue-in-cheek witticisms, this book is even better than the movie, if that is possible. It pretends to be a rewriting of an ancient fairy tale, and the back-and-forth between the supposed "actual" author and the Goldman is hilarious. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica Baird | 7/30/2013

    " A great book and well worth the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maggie Whitbeck | 6/24/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nedae66 | 12/4/2012

    " This is an amazing book. There are some parts that are boring, but over all, the author did a great job just leaving in the 'good' parts. The title does not lie: the book is full of adventure. I also recommend watching the movie right after reading the book. So much fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike Gillett | 6/25/2012

    " BEST STORY. One of the funniest, gripping, romantic, sarcastic novels ever! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 6/23/2012

    " Loved the movie, really enjoyed the book. Sometimes Goldman rambled too much in his side notes, but most of them were interesting. Quick read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sep | 3/20/2012

    " This was a fantastic book and it was just like the movie, although I got annoyed with all of Goldman's asides. "

    " Way better than than the movie!!!! Best book ever written!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian Hopps | 7/18/2011

    " So this was the second time I have read this book. It is funny and witty. It reminds me of Snow White by Donald Barthelme. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 5/22/2011

    " I found much of this difficult to read in this day and age, especially the epigramatic dialog but the rest was very good. Not my first time and would recommend as an important classic to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Drucilla | 5/20/2011

    " This novel isn't as well known as Dracula or Frankenstein but it is just as good. In some ways, it is darker than those two as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremiah | 5/20/2011

    " Macabre version of Thomas Hardy. Memorable. "

    " Had a hard time finishing it. Maybe it's because I really don't like him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia | 5/19/2011

    " I feel the urge to add that I have read this in three languages. I guess this sums up how much I like it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wilde | 5/19/2011

    " I've read this book a couple of times over the years and have always enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jose A. | 5/18/2011

    " Exquisite... the word that came to my mind after the last page of this wonderful piece of art. I can't really say much, but its interesting how everything goes around the arts, the beauty and the greed.

    Go and read this, period. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 5/17/2011

    " Clever wordplay, flowery symbolism, tortured souls. Gotta love Oscar Wilde. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ioana | 5/16/2011

    " wonderful story of a man who finds out how life is and who becomes something that he is not. I think this is what happens with all of us at a certain age, we are all good people at the beginning but we have to change during the life. And the metaphor of the picture is great. "

About the Author
Author Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde (1854–1900) was born in Dublin in 1854. He won scholarships to both Trinity College, Dublin, and Magdalen College, Oxford, where he was heavily influenced by the radical aesthetics of Walter Pater. Flamboyant wit and man-about-town, Wilde had a reputation that preceded him, especially in his early career. After publishing two volumes of short stories between 1887 and 1891, his social-comedy plays such as Lady Windermere’s Fan and The Importance of Being Earnest established his critical and commercial success. In 1895 Wilde was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment for homosexual conduct and died in Paris in obscurity a few years after his release.
