“As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of ‘The Princess Bride’” by Cary Elwes
2017 Reading Challenge — Book 34: A book of your choice
This was a total guilty pleasure read for this weekend’s quick trip up to northern Kentucky for my cousin’s wedding. Our whole family loves The Princess Bride, and I also love Cary Elwes’ accent. Checking out the audiobook (read by Elwes himself) seemed like a great choice for a road trip read.
Nearly every living cast member, along with the writer, director, and producer of the film, contributed some of their thoughts to the writing of this book, and most of them also lent their voices to the audiobook. Laurie and I were cracking up nearly the entire time hearing about some of the hijinks that went on behind the scenes (particularly the often ridiculous stories about dealing with the size of Andre the Giant), and now can’t wait to watch the movie again!
Definitely a great one to check out for yourself. Get it here.
