The Princess Bride Read-A-Long Week 5
October 31, 2010 12 Comments
October is the month of the Princess Bride Read-A-Long! Chris from Chrisbookarama is hosting this event. I’ve neither read the book before nor seen the movie so it’s all new for me.
This week we read: Buttercup’s Baby.
Buttercup’s Baby is a chapter added to the book at a later stage. It’s missing in earlier prints of the book.
However, I could have done without it! It was not very interesting and if I’m being honest (which I try to be in all non-perilous situations), I skimmed some of it. It was boring, it was jumping from one thing to the next, and it didn’t add anything to the book for me.
The worst was: even more interruptions by the author! I didn’t like the interruptions at all. They were present through-out the book, and while I liked the idea as such, I didn’t like the repeated interruptions with all kinds of nonsensical information.
A great disappointment!
Did you read this book? Do you agree?
