As You Wish – Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride by Cary Elwes with Joe Layden and a foreward by Rob Reiner – Book Review

as-you-wish

If you are like me, you grew up with The Princess Bride on VHS and watched it a lot. It has fabulous characters, great lines and you love it. You may have even read the book, and been lead to do online searches to try to figure out if it is real or not. You may be happy to watch the film over and over again, and are happy to ignore the dagginess of it – ridiculous ROUS or the obviously fake sets.

If you are like this, then this book is for you. It’s not some freaky reveal of secrets that will ruin the film for you – it’s just a whole bunch of stories from Carey Elwes punctuated by little stories from other cast and crew members. It’s fun, it’s light, it’s nice. And it is definitely for the fans.
