It's about our relationship with fiction, and with the world around us. In his fictional childhood, Goldman learned more about the world from the process of watching the story unfold than he did from the story itself.
And so this book is a story about stories. The actual story is just bonus.
Which brings me, of course, to the film. Let me say that this is one of the very, very few instances where I will put the movie up on par with the book. This is one instance where they are equal in nearly every measure. I'm sure a lot of this has to do with the fact that Goldman wrote the screenplay for the film, so not only is the story intact, but a great deal of the dialogue is almost verbatim from the book.
It was gold in print and gold on the screen. The hardest part about reading the book is trying not to hear Andre the Giant, Christopher Guest, Robin Wright and all the other fine actors and actresses in your head as you read.
So, whether you read the book or see the movie, you're in for a treat. And as you read, just remember the books that molded you into who you are today. Think about the stories that taught you life's lessons before life got around to doing it.
Think about them and appreciate them, and remember that every book is a lesson, one way or another I find it interesting that The Princess Bride can sit comfortably shoulder-to-shoulder with House of Leaves. You explain how i feel about this book perfectly. Im a dork and I am the farthest possible from poetic, so thanks for writing this.
Thanks for that as well! Ive watched the movie too and it is debatably funnier than the book. Jun 17, PM Shelves: fantasy , classics , It's amazing that I've never found time to read this book before. I have seen the movie, but it was years ago and I only really remember the one thing that everyone remembers: The real strength of this book is that is just ticks every box imaginable.
It's a fairy tale, full of action, romance and revenge, and it has that timeless quality that the best fairy tales seem to carry. It was published in the s but it feels like it should be a thousand years old, passed down from generation to genera It's amazing that I've never found time to read this book before. It was published in the s but it feels like it should be a thousand years old, passed down from generation to generation.
It's non-stop adventure, comedy gold and full of some of the most memorable characters I've ever had the pleasure of reading about.
Goldman's writing style for this novel works so surprisingly well. For one, it's such an unusual idea to write a retelling of a story by a fictional author - Goldman claims his father read him the S. Morgenstern classic as a child and then proceeds to tell us the "abridged" version with all the good parts.
It's strange how well his constant sidenotes actually add to the story, rather than take us out of it. Stars Above: A Lunar Chronicles Collection.
