I think the bigger question is how on earth there are SO many people who don’t even know it’s an actual book and not just a fantastic movie??!!??
I love the book because it’s brilliant. I love the book because it has true love, humor, action, and rodents of an unusual size. I love Westley, I really, really do. He’s the perfect fairytale man. I love Fezzik. I love, love, love the writing. But more than anything else, I get goose bumps every single time, I love Inigo and these words:
“Hello! My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father, prepare to die.”
“Offer me money-”
“Everything,” the Count said.
“Power too. Promise me that.”
“All I have and more. Please.”
“Offer me anything I ask for.”
“Yes. Yes. Say it.”
“I WANT DOMINGO MONTOYA , YOU SON OF A BITCH!”
And that folks, is why you absolutely must, for the love of all things, read the book. It’s fan-flipping-tastic. It’ll make you smile. I promise. Here’s the link to it on Amazon, get it today. You won’t be sorry.
