it was amazing
bookshelves: constantly-rereading

This is one of the books that leave me speechless. But this book, left me speechless for a different reason. I can NOT decide if it's a pretty good book or if it's one of those books I am going to love until the end of time and say "Ooooooh, thaaaat book" everytime someone mentions it. (The books I call Dasfalia-books. F.ex. the Inktrilogy and the Stravaganza-serie. While I read these books I get the so called Dasfalia-feeling which feels a bit like nostalgia, except... better).

You see, this edition (The 30th anniversy one) have two exceptionally long introductions; and I absolutely loved them. I got really caught up in the story of William Goldman, and his grandson Willy and how The Princess Bride had affected his entire life and everything. So consequently, I obviously had really high expectations when I was going to start reading Chapter One - The Bride the next night. (After reading the intros I even got the Dasfalia-feeling)

I stayed up 'til about half past four, finished the book - and did not know if I loved it or not. It is very possible that I was too tired (I've slipped out of my Nocturnal routine) but... I'm going to stop here. Because there isn't really anything else to say.
