The story was so sweet, of adventure, love, memories and of finding ones self.

There were parts where you wanted to have a good cry and then parts where you were crying with laughter.

It is a really easy read and i hoghly recommended

You were on your way home when you died.It was a car accident. Nothing particularly remarkable, but fatal nonetheless. You left behind a wife and two children. It was a painless death. The EMTs tried their best to save you, but to no avail. Your body was so utterly shattered you were better off, trust me.And that’s when you met me." A short story about the universe.

The hilarious, heartbreaking novel by the author of the international best seller A Man Called Ove. Granny has been telling fairy tales for as long as Elsa can remember. In the beginning they were only to make Elsa go to sleep, to get her to practise Granny's secret language, and a little because Granny is just about as nutty as a granny should be. But lately the stories have another dimension as well. Something Elsa can't quite put her finger on....

i have seen the film and loved it! i also heard great things about the book so i thought that i would give it as try. I am so glad that i did as it is amazing!
when reading you have to make sure that you dont compare it to the film as they are both different with only a few similarities (like most both to film adaptations).
I am English and sometimes find it hard to listen to an American reader but i found this book easy to follow and it is read so well.

if you are unsure about purchasing this book ... you should do it you wont regret it!

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.
