Try Kobo maybe, that's where I got my copy. And you can probably use the coupon c4auto40 for forty percent off.
Thanks for this, but I think I must be going mad. I can't find The Princess Bride on Kobo at all...

And The Princess Bride by William Goldman it is!

Put me down in the ranks of those who never heard of the book or the movie.

I'm on chapter five now, the movie follows the books quite well, but obviously they changed a few details.

The movie has a bit more comedy though.

I bought the movie, which I've never seen, for my daughter for her Birthday yesterday. Never let it be said I let an opportunity pass me by . I'll wait and read the book first, though.

Probably a good plan. This is one of the (very) few cases where the book is not as good as the movie. At least in my opinion.

I don't think it matters which you watch/read first, I like that I watched the movie first, then I don't have to get used to the new faces and/or think they didn't pick the right people.

The movie is a work of art.

How could you not have heard of The Princess Bride!

The movie is a Cult Classic, kind of like Napoleon Dynamite...... you have seen that right?

I haven't seen Napolean Dynamite . But I've watched The Princess Bride many times. I have it on DVD at home. Love the movie.

No, not like Napoleon Dynamite at all. Napoleon Dynamite is garbage where The Princess Bride is very good.
