Finished it! (and still not seen the movie, but I promise I will as soon as I can)

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


I don't know what's funnier. This book or the one-star reviews on Amazon where people have clearly missed the point that the entire book is one glorious piss-take in the style of Spinal Tap or (for those of us who listen to Radio 4) I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue. These one-star reviewers searching for S Morgenstern's original version of The Princess Bride, are also probably trying to find the rules to Mornington Crescent. 


The 'inserts' from Goldman about why he removed 23 pages of Buttercup packing her suitcases, or why he took out the full details of the Duchess's headgear had me in stitches.


All very cleverly done, and extremely funny.
