A fantastic, easy read that's a must for any fan of The Princess Bride. I loved Cary Elwes' anecdotes from behind the scenes and his sneak peeks at everyone involved in making the movie, which sounded like a blast. A wonderful reflection on one of my favourite movies.

Fellowship of the Ring once meant...

While at times it is slathered with sticky-sweet perfection, I truly believe that everyone had a fantastic time making the movie. I really appreciated that there was no bashing or dirt...
