The Princess Bride: Book or Movie?

I REALLY hate it when I have to say this, but I barely even made it through the book. The movie was way better, IMO. I was very, very disappointed in the book.

  • It is not often that I will say that the movie is better than the book but in this case it is.

  • The book was so much better. Far more detail which was difficult to read. For me it was like reading Monty Python. Still liked it way better than the movie. They did do a decent job with the movie, though.

  • I am not a big reader. I would always rather watch the movie. But I have never seen The Princess Bride.
