The Princess Bride is the epic story of Buttercup, a young farm girl turned princess, and her true love, Westley. When Westley is lost at sea, Buttercup is reluctantly taken as Prince Humperdinck's bride. It's nearing their wedding when she is kidnapped by Vizzini, a hunchback Sicilian, Fezzik, a Turkish giant (who likes to make up rhymes), and Inigo, the greatest swordsman to ever live, who seeks revenge on the six-fingered man who killed his father.
There seems to be some sort of plot going on; but all of a sudden, this odd guy dressed all in black shows up, chasing after them. Who could he be, and why is he kidnapping the princess bride from her kidnappers? You'll just have to find out!
It can get a little confusing about who wrote this. Throughout the book, William Goldman speaks as though he is only abridging it, and says that it is all a true story, written down by Florinese author S. Morgenstern. But just so you know, Goldman really wrote it, hah! This is one of my favorite books, and the movie is pretty great too.
As for a bit of news--my Nutcracker Ballet show was last weekend! Our Editor, Dina, came to see it; thank you again, Dina! It was great meeting her, and I'm glad everyone enjoyed it. I had a lot of fun! In other news, guess who's turning 15 this week? Yup, my birthday is this Thursday, the 17th :) It seems like it was only a little while ago I was celebrating my 14th.
