Teen Book Review: The Princess Bride

The Princess Bride by William Goldman

Review by Fallon D., Northwest Branch

Buttercup, one of the most beautiful women in the world, lives on a farm; her joys riding her horse and taunting the farm boy that works there. When an unexpected visit of the count and countess arrive, she realizes she loves the farm boy.  She professes her love, and he goes to America to seek his fortune so they can eventually marry.  Soon, she finds out that he has killed by the Dread Pirate Roberts.  Devastated and not caring about her life anymore, she agrees to marry Prince Humperdink, but the adventure doesn't stop there.

Loving the movie since I saw it  years ago, I wasn't disappointed. The movie was very close to the book, only leaving out minor scenes.  The book was really well written and has humor, though not maybe as much as the movie.The characters were very interesting and likeable, and the storyline was great. If you liked the movie I would definitely recommend this to you, but even if you haven't its a great book.
