• Mr H

The Prince Bride - William Goldman

Updated: Jul 23, 2021


Score: 8/10


Arguably the most quotable book | movie of all time. Originally penned as satire on tired Literature tropes. It has become a how-to guide on those same tropes. An unintended classic.


This story has everything: romance, adventure, sword fighting, princes, princesses, evil, good, more fighting, pirates, rope sports, torture and most importantly a happy ending...


Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.

The thing that recommends this story more than any other perhaps is that Mrs H loved it. As a non fantasy reader I had believed this inconceivable, but she proved me wrong and belly laughed, cried and fist pumped her way through this little gem of a book.


My only advice to would be readers, skip the introduction and get right into the meat and potatoes of the story.
