I've loved the movie since before knowing the name of it, I'm looking forward to the book.

11/18 - Awww with the loving!

I couldn't imagine loving the movie any more or less, and this didn't diminish it at all! It's so awesome. The friendship between Inigo and Fezzik, which I loved in the movie, is even sweeter in the book. I loved the rhymes, in particular.

Inigo has always been my favorite character in the movie, and while reading, for the most part, I heard Mandy's voice in my head. However, near the end, he has quite a bit of dialogue, which I imagine is said very rapid-fire. I couldn't figure out who's voice I was hearing, until suddenly it clicked. Instead of Mandy's voice, I heard the Hat from Labyrinth.

It was quite jolting.

Such a love.
