The Princess Bride (Continued)
The plot unfolds withmany twists and turns.
This book is well-written in many ways. The authorspends a lot of time developing the characters, each with a distinct personality,which helps readers understand their actions.
Goldman also describes thesetting of the novel, giving places vivid names such as The Cliffs of Insanityand The Zoo of Death. The highlight is the author's commentaries. Throughout thenovel Goldman interjects when he feels the reader may have missed something orjust to keep us on our toes. These remarks make the book more personal becausethe reader feels the author is speaking to us.
The only negative part ofthe book is that it takes a long time to get started. The first 30 pages describewhy Goldman wrote it, which is only somewhat interesting.
