This audiobook was narrated by Rob Reiner.

I'm a fan of the movie, and wanted to know how the book measured up to one of my favorites.
I wasn't a big fan of Rob Reiner's narration. His accent added some quirkiness to the reading, but his throat clearing, swallowing etc was a bit distracting for me.

Buttercup is a woman who falls in love with Westley, the farm boy who works on her property.
When Westley is presumed dead, thanks to pirates of course, Buttercup finds herself betrothed to Prince Humperdink.

Sword fighting, giants, swamps, horse riding, kidnapping, and jokes galore.

If you've watched the movie, you won't be surprised by the book. It's very similar and incredibly funny.
