The Princess Bride

The Princess Bride - William Goldman When I picked it up,the first couple of pages didn't grab me.I didn't understand why the author brings himself to the story.
All the time I was saying to myself:"why are you reading this if you don't like it."The answer was this:"All the people say it is great and you have to read it."
Now I am very happy that I didn't give up and read it and must admit that it is great.
