5.0 von 5 Sternen Heaven in Book Form
I fell in love with the movie first, but then discovered from the credits that there was a book counterpart. I quickly found & ordered the book. I'm not even finished yet and I love this book dearly. I find myself thinking of Inigo, Fezzik, Westley, and Buttercup through the day. I find myself smiling at the parts that the movie takes directly. I thought I loved...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing if you love the movie
This was a decent book, but I feel my open-mindedness may have been compromised by my intense love of the movie. At first glance, I was sure it would be merely an on-paper adaption of my favorite movie of all time- not so. It has much author commentary which helped me appreciate many aspects of the film, and the history of the story. Be warned, however, this short...

1.0 von 5 Sternen THE GOOD PARTS? LIKE HELL., 30. August 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Princess Bride (Taschenbuch)
Firstly, I would just like to make it clear that there is NO S. Morgenstern. He is not real, and the pretence that he is is what ruins this otherwise marvelous book. The story itself is magnificent, and could become a classic. However, the wonders of the story are destroyed by Goldman's gimmick (and by destroyed, I mean beaten bludgeoned stabbed strangled run through a shredding machine chewed up into nasty wet clumps and spat into a volcano that a meteor is about to hit). For some unfathomable reason, Goldman made up the gimmicky idea that this was an abridged version of an existing tale, and instead of just abridging it, he rambles on and on. Some of the interuptions are amusing (mostly the ones in the film), but there are places where he will interupt and go of on tangeants for several pages. Worst of all, though, is the opening. As if the constant interuptions weren't bad enough (a pity; the story itself has a wonderful flow), he starts of the book with 30 pages of him rambling and insulting his wife and kid. 30 pages! If Morgenstern were real, then I don't think his ramblings could have been any worse than Goldman's. Actually, the worst is the ending. I know the book should be cynical, but jeez!
It's sad, really, that this great story is so frequently interrupted by the author, just so he can tell you what making Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid was like.
I rarely say this, but the movie is better. On their own grounds, the stories are farely equal, and basically the same. The movie suceeds though, by leaving Goldman's interludes out, and it deserves to be the classic that the book isn't. Oh, and don't feel that the movie is a blasphemy towards the source material. Goldman wrote the screenplay.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good, 11. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Princess Bride (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I thought that this was a good story and I loved the movie, but I found Goldman's comments quite annoying and even if he doesn't really have a son I didn't find his rude remarks funny. I did always wonder why Goldman's name was so large and Morgenstern's so small but now that I know that there is no S. Morgenstern I get it, I also get the rather modern twist on the classic princess story. I advise you to skip that Italic portions and just read that story. I also reccomend not buying the 25 anniversary edition, I did because I thought Buttercup's Baby was included but it was just the first chapter and even that wasn't very good. I recommend just buying the paperback or better yet get it from the Library because it is not worth the money. I really did like the movie though (which I thought was just as good as the book) and I think the story is great, but there are better books out there. My favorite line is "Life is pain Highness, and anybody who tells you differently is selling something." (not an exact quote) I also enjoyed Buttercup's dumb blond personality, sorry if I offended anyone by using the term dumb blond. I don't mean to sound to negative here I really did enjoy "The Princess Bride" I would probably recommend for some afternoon when you are bored and want some funny entertainment because it is funny, also skip the introduction chapter (I quit half way through and went to the real first chapter) it is not worth reading.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Suprisingly BAD, 9. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Princess Bride (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I loved the movie, and perhaps it was that that ruined this book for me. I found the fact that he kept pointing out WHERE he was skipping over the princess going over her zillion dresses and whatnot EXCEPTIONALLY dull.... I know why they left all of that out of the movie, it is boring. I usually keep a hold of all of the books I read. I don't own this one anymore.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Princess Bride (Taschenbuch)
After watching the movie countless times, I finally purchased and read the book. I found it to be something of a let-down. The characters are unrealistic and often one-dimensional, and the plot doesn't hold together in places. If you love the movie, go ahead and get the book for background information -- it's interesting, and I wouldn't say it's a complete waste of time. However, for those of you (are there any such people?) who have never seen the movie or read the book, SEE THE MOVIE! The book is, in my opinion, secondary.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Mean-spirited, misogynist, and tiresome, 12. August 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Princess Bride (Taschenbuch)
Given all the rave reviews, I feel the need to register a dissenting opinion. I found this book mean-spirited, misogynist, and tiresome. Not funny. Searingly dull in parts.
This is the only case I can think of in which I read a book, then saw the movie based on it, and liked the movie better. The movie is cute and funny. (Actually, I'm surprised that I ever went to see the movie, given that I loathed the book so deeply.)
Anyway, if you don't like this book, you don't need to feel like a freak: you're not alone.

1.0 von 5 Sternen William Goldman's destruction of "The Princess Bride", 15. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Princess Bride (Taschenbuch)
This version of The Princess Bride annoyed me in many ways. For instance, William Goldman deleted whole sections of the original story. As if he knew exactly what the reading public wanted to read. I for one, would much rather read an original classic than to read a butched story and spoon fed only selected portions. The title of this book should read "The Princess Bride as written by S. Morgenstern as destroyed by William Goldman. Shame on you Mr. Goldman for destroying what could have been an enjoyable reading experience with your pointless cuts and intrusive ramblings.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Upsetting, 13. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Princess Bride (Taschenbuch)
I am appalled that starting with the title-"A Hot Fairy Tale"-was included. I am also appalled that this book has been okayed for children to read when the publishers have included in the introduction that there is a Little Sex in the story when there is none. It is misleading information such as this that has ruined this book as well as others by not allowing Junior High students to be able to read it.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Shameless profit taking and pablumization., 16. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Princess Bride (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I find this book quite offensive. Mr. Goldman is certainly not the rediscoverer of Morgenstern's book, which was never really lost. Rather he has produced a film edited version that is proof that modern publishers and producers have no confidence in the intelligence of their readership. Bypass this abridgement and seek rather for the original masterpiece.

Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Princess Bride (Taschenbuch)
W. Goldman has abridged this classic by omitting over 100 pages of the original. If anyone has an available copy of the original by S. Morgenstern or knows somewhere to get it please email me!!! I would be much abliged. Thank You Very Much!
