I like the book better than the movie personaly, because the book has such things as Zoo-of-Death. The albino in the moive the got clubbed over the head and did nothen else, but in the book the albino showed them the way and gave them his wheelbarolw. the only good part of the movie i though was that the maricle man was played by Billy Crystal, and his wife (The witch) was really really scary looking. On the cliffs of insanity the horses weren't white like they were suppose to be and Prince Humperdink wasn't a big masculine guy like in the book he was and could switch horses wile he was riding so no one horse had to bear all of his weight all the way through the ride. In the movie the albino was pushing a "hand-cart" , wile in the book he had a "Wheelbarrol". Again i felt that the book was ALOT better than the movie. In the movie Westly wasn't very well played amd look alittle "odd".

In the movie they left out the Zoo of death which would have made the video a whole lot better, because they would have seen how good prince humperdinck was of a tracker and the pit of despair was just to dull. The albino in the movie got knocked out and didnt help Inigo and Fezzik which didnt give any credit to the albino because he was always trying to help westley. prince humperdinck should have been a fat man with a bad temper and always looked mad because in the movie he was not fat and was not mad all the time.

Goldman is getting credit and money for Morgenstern's great epic, when all he did was cut out of it. The book did, however, manage to keep most of its magic, though the unabridged is much better! Unfortunately, because Goldman put this copy into print, the original is no longer available. You'd have to go to a used or even antique book store to get a copy. Not even most libraries carry an original copy.

The actual book is good, but I think the abridgement leaves out too much. I understood what was going on, but the book could have been much more interesting if few or no passages were removed.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
