The Princess Bride - S. Morgenstern's Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure by William Goldman


Yeah, a little bit. It’s also the best book in the history of ever.

Sure it has a little kissing

but it also has pirates

and bad guys

and swordsmen

and giants


I’m not writing a synopsis, I’m not writing a review. I’m just telling you if you have not already read it, read it now.

“What if I don’t like it?” you ask??? INCONCEIVABLE!

“Come my love, I'll tell you a tale
Of a boy and girl and their love story
And how he loved her oh so much
And all the charms she did possess

Now this did happen once upon a time
When things were not so complex
And how he worshipped the ground she walked
And when he looked in her eyes he became obsessed

This love was stronger than the powers so dark
A prince could have within his kingdom
His spells to weak and steal a heart
Within her breast but only sleeping

He said "Don't you know I love you oh so much
And lay my heart at the foot of your dress?"
She said "Don't you know that storybook love's
Always have a happy ending?"

Then he swooped her up just like in the books
And on his stallion they rode away
My love is like a storybook story
But it's as real as the feelings I feel
My love is like a storybook story
But it's as real as the feelings I feel"
