The Princess Bride
- By: William Goldman
- Narrated by: Rob Reiner
- Length: 2 hrs and 32 mins
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.

Really disappointed about the abridgement.
As much as it is my own fault for not reading the description, I was really disappointed to find out about the abridgement *after* purchasing, and *after* gifting it to a friend.This abridgment basically (with a few exceptions) just turns the book back into the movie, and what's the point of that? Would love to find an unabridged reading, it's such a great book.
