This adventure story has everything you could want: the good guy, some bad guys, the girl, sword fighting, revenge, romance, of course a happy ending, and rodents of unusual size. Join Westley the plucky farm boy, Buttercup the beautiful young maiden, Inigo Montoya the driven, embittered swordsman, and many other strange and unusual characters in this swashbuckling tale of good-natured silliness. It is read by Rob Reiner, who directed the motion picture based on this classic tale.

I'm a big fan of the book and film, which I've read at least twice and seen countless times. The audiobook released here is deeply flawed in that it's massively abridged (the Fire Swamp segment, for instance, only includes the ROUS) and in that the volume level is very low (okay to listen to at home but almost impossible in a car). But it's the Princess Bride! Read by Rob Reiner (he does a good job)! For the price, I'd recommend it with reservations. Don't use a credit on it. Buy it individually.
