This is one of the few books that I strongly believe is made infinitely better by watching the movie (many many times) first.

Two Things I Liked Better about the Book

Fezzik (the Giant) & Inigo Montoya (the Spaniard) are the definition of best friends in this book and it makes me feel all warm inside to have gotten to know them better.

The narrator cracks me up, especially the long intro involving his hatred of all books and reading when he was younger.

Favorite Quote

I am not trying to make this a downer, understand. I mean, I really do think that love is the best thing in the world, except for cough drops. But I also have to say, for the umpty-umpth time, that life isn't fair. It's just fairer than death, that's all.
