Description - The Princess Bride by William Goldman

The beloved novel that spawned the cult classic film. Embark on a tale of true love and swashbuckling adventure like no other.

Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father; prepare to die!

Beautiful, flaxen-haired Buttercup has fallen for Westley, the farm boy.

When he departs to make his fortune, she vows never to love another. But when she hears that his ship has been captured by the Dread Pirate Roberts - who never leaves survivors - her heart is broken.

Buttercup’s charms draw the attention of the relentless Prince Humperdinck who wants a wife and will go to any lengths to make her his bride. But there are other plans afoot. Plans involving mercenaries, giants, criminal philosophers, villainous counts, and pirates. So begins one of modern storytelling’s most beloved tales.
