The Princess Bride

The Princess Bride is the classic tale of love, revenge, pirates, chases, escapes, true love, and the ROUS’S (they do actually exist)

Buttercup lives on a small farm in the country of Florin. With her is a farm boy named Westley. Buttercup loves to order Westley about. From polishing her horse’s saddle, to fetching pitchers, to feeding pigs, Westley is ordered about by Buttercup. One day, they are both amazed to discover that they really like each other. Westley, being a poor farm boy, leaves Buttercup and decides to seek ways to make money for marriage, in the lands across the sea.

On his way, his ship is attacked by the Dread Pirate Roberts, who wasn’t in the business of keeping captors alive. So, word reaches Buttercup that Westley is no longer alive, she retreats into her room and shuts herself a way from the world. 

Several years later she is on the brink of marrying Prince Humperdinck but she is kidnapped by a band of criminals, Vezzini the self professed genius, Fezzik the giant, and Inigo, a man who has spent years trying to avenge the death of his father at the hands of one of Humperdinck’s men (the one with six fingers on his left hand) . 

As she is being taken away, there is a mysterious figure that begins to follow them. Unbeknownst to all, the mystery figure is Westley . He eventually rescues Buttercup. He defeats Inigo, Fezzik and Vezzini to save her. 

This is the story that spawned the cult classic movie. (I have five copies of the movie and two of the book). Read this if you want to read about adventure on the high seas, about love, and about what people will do to save those they hold close to their hearts.
