 One of the greatest stories ever told...

| | See all nerfherder's reviews (1)

I can't recommend this book enough to anyone. A truly fantastic book. Like most people, I fell in love with the film before the book, but the promise of a book full of fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, and miracles was too good to ignore, so with the knowledge that all books are better than the film adaptations, I decided to give it a read. Well it's true, the book is better than the film, but only just. Both now have a special place in my heart, and I've got a big feeling that it's going to be one of those things that I'll pass onto my kids one day. And to be honest, I'll enjoy reading the book again as much as they will love hearing it... Though maybe not the ROUS's heheh - Nerfy.

 Not as good as the movie

The book is good and the "good parts" story is simply fantastic, as the movie obviously demonstrates.
The pretend part, however, fell absolutely flat for me. The introduction with the fake story of how he came to 'abridge' the Morgenstern 'original' was OK, but it should have stopped at that: I imagine that the obnoxious personal notes which pop up methodically in the middle of the book are supposed to be witty and funny and enhance the plot but, to me, they seem just uninspired, long and boring. Cut the parts in italics (which ironically correspond to the parts that he "cut" from the "original") and the book flows much better and without interruptions.
