AS YOU WISH: INCOVCEIVABLE TALES FROM THE MAKING OF THE PRINCESS BRIDE by Cary Elwes

Posted on Updated on

As the title implies, this book takes readers behind-the-scenes of The Princess Bride.  The main narrative is from Cary Elwes’ (Westley) point of view, but frequent asides from most of the actors, director, and producer add depth and detail.  The book reads like a story and contains hilarious anecdotes that added to my appreciation of a film I thought I couldn’t possibly love more than I already did.  I listened to the audiobook, which is narrated by Cary Elwes with the voices of most of the original cast reading their own recollections.  But I also had the print book with me while I listened so that I could look at all of the photographs.  I’m not sure it would be appealing to someone who hasn’t read The Princess Bride, but for fans it is a must read!
