I'm kind of interested with the book's title, but have no idea what it's all about. I don't know, maybe I still have the inner child in me, lol! Perhaps I have to go about the net search for reviews and plot on this, and it has a movie, wonder when was this released coz I really haven't heard of this but it's intriguing. ^---^ ciao!

i prefer the book version.. i got it first...reading the book makes my mind more imaginative or creative than watching it. it's more complete, and i am touched by the story..i love reading the book, more than watching the movie..

The movie version. The book version had William Goldman's psychosis all over it.

Definitely the book!! I have to say that The Princess Bride has got to be one of my favorite books--it just was written in such a unique way & I definitely loved William Goldman's style in this book (though his other book, Magic, was such a letdown). Hehe I was really deceived by Goldman--at first really believing that the author was S. Morgenstern & went so far as researching it online--only to find out Florin was completely made up! & take note--I wans't alone! LOL...oh well. You have to understand though that I found this copy (I first watched the movie & got a nice surprise to find the book version in a 2ndhand bookstore) & the copy was ripped & looked so old so I thought it was a REALLY old book--haha! oh well...how about you?? =)

I much preferred the movie, since the book got kind of depressing when William Goldman would talk about his fictional family divorcing him and his fictional encounter with the Florinese history mafia or whatever. Plus the movie had that 80s kid. Vic or Fred Savage, whatever his name was.
