The Princess Bride, by William Goldman

How could I encapsulate The Princess Bride better than S. Morgenstern himself:

"Fencing. Fighting. Torture. Poison. True love. Hate. Revenge. Giants. Hunters. Bad men. Good men. Beautifulest ladies. Snakes. Spiders. Beasts of all natures and descriptions. Pain. Death. Brave men. Coward men. Strongest men. Chases. Escapes. Lies. Truths. Passion. Miracles."

If you loved the movie, then you will giggle, snicker, and laugh out loud at the book.  (Even if the snobby, selfish, teenage Buttercup gets on your nerves, like she did mine in the beginning of the book.)  :-)

Read it. Watch it. It's "Tr...oooo...luv..."
