The Bride

I have to say how much i LOVED this!(the words below) What a beautiful expression of love from Buttercup.This is my favorite passage:

"There is no room in my body and mind for anything but you.  my arms love you, my ears adore you, my knees shake with blind affection.  Sweet perfect Westley, whipser that I have a chance to win your love..."

I could go on and on cause the rest is really good too.  What I wouldn't give to have lived in those days so that when those words came out of my mouth, everyone wouldn't look at my like I was CRAZY!!
That IS what i think about my own Wesley (who was actually named after Westley in this book.) he is such a hunk too :)

Anyway, this is how Westley would tell Buttercup he loved her (which is such a mans response):

sweet and to the point, yet she did not understand for such a long time!

How are you enjoying the book?  Haven't read it yet and need a copy?  Let me know and you can borrow mine! :)

Wait, I'm FINISHED?!?  What a Great Read!  I didn't even realize I read it so fast. So, I guess I'll start breaking it down, section by section...

Introductions to the 25th and
30th Anniversary Editions:

We read all about the "real" author of The Princess Bride,
S. Morgenstern.
Did you know he is Fictional?  Also, Goldman wasn't married to a "Helen" and didn't have a son, but has 2 daughters. I didn't know until my husband told me and I looked it up on the internet.  What Trickery! It's amazing to me how I believed evey word he wrote.  What a clever way to use that type of literary device!
(this is William Goldman)
