A magical satire
Growing up watching the movie over and over again didn't come close to preparing me for the cheerfully satirical tone of this well-known story. Even though I knew exactly what to expect next, I couldn't drag myself away.
Until, that is, the second last chapter, when I quietly closed the book, burst into tears and called my mum to say that I couldn't bear to finish it, because that would mean it was the end. She told me to get a grip. I did. I finished it, I loved it, I cried some more. I'll never get to read 'The Princess Bride' for the first time again, but I will re-read and re-read and re-read it! by Rebecca Battersby
