Hmm, not at all what I was expecting. The author of "The Princess Bride" I clearly had some high expectations for this one.

The story is strange, seeming to be almost half written in my opinion, and while there are brief moments of his genius that reminded me of what made The Princess Bride great, that's all it did. Reminded me of his genius in another place, while not making me feel of his genius in this instance, does that make sense?

Also, there were two startling instances of profanity, perhaps more startling because there were just the two and they seemed so out of place.
