Ironic Contradictions

I'm a long time reader - since way back when I was seven. That makes it over three quarters of my life that I will be a reader for. But it is worth it. When I'm not reading or wasting my time online on here or Goodreads I'll be off playing video games, studying teaching and messing around with friends and pop culture. Or reading some more.
The Princess Bride - William Goldman Warning: Any forthcoming review is resultant from necessary tidying of read and as of yet not reviewed books.

Basically this is every bit as good as the film. I suspect that the brilliance of the film may have altered some perspectives of this as a work of fiction but the book was the original. And the film basically sticks identically to the book. I know the fact that the title includes both 'Princess' and 'Bride' may also have discouraged some potential readers. However it's a trap. The book focuses more on comedy, action and some of the best lines ever.

Go see the film, read the book and next time someone uses the word 'inconceivable' I believe you'll never see the word the same. It's a masterpiece in my mind and will likely become a fully fledged classic in years to come if it isn't already.
