The Princess Bride

Level 1

GOLDMAN, William
Visit the author's website

Weird and wonderful, replete with clichés and memorable characters, this is adventure pure and simple, immersing you once again in the worlds you read about when you were very young. But there’s a new depth to this story; it’s also a combination of a well-wrought story and a parody of heroic fantasy— definitely enjoyable and memorable.
