I did not think I would have to start this review with a trigger warning, of all books, but here we are. Trigger Warning: Suicide (There is a line in this that really rubbed me the wrong way.) Fat shaming a child.--- About the suicide, the line is "She had never seriously contemplated suicide befo...

The Princess Bride is yet another one of those classic books that “everybody” has read but that I have just now read for the first time. I don’t think I’ve seen the movie either, although it’s possible I saw it when I was very young and just don’t remember it. A few of the lines in the book were f...

Even though I’ve seen the movie a dozen times, it wasn’t until last week that I picked up The Princess Bride, by William Goldman.

“There are no words to contain all my wisdom. I am so cunning, crafty and clever, so filled with deceit, guile and chicanery, such a knave, so shrewd, cagey as well as calculating, as diabolical as I am vulpine, as tricky as I am untrustworthy . . . well, I told you there were not words invented yet...

Nope. This just wasn't for me. I love the movie, but the book was dull. It had some amusing lines, but over all, it bored me to tears.
