Simply delightful!
If you're a fan of The Princess Bride and want first hand narration about casting and filming, this is a must read/listen. The audio book, narrated by the Man in Black himself, Cary Elwes, was pitch perfect. Plus, the added bonus of other actors narration like Robin Wright and Mandy Patinkin.
My only quibble was the seemingly obsession about Robin Wright's beauty. Yes, I get it, she's beautiful, and the part required princess-like beauty, but she's more than her beauty, right?
It was so fun to turn on the audio every morning at breakfast. The boys loved it too.
Great family entertainment.
