As You Wish by Cary Elwes

As You Wish. Such an iconic line in cinema and in literature. From the young age of 12 when my dad introduced me to his all-time favorite movie The Princess Bride, I have fallen in love with this movie many times over, and as an adult, I love it even more! So when Cary Elwes wrote As You Wish, I knew I HAD to read it and even more when I heard that he narrated it along with Chris Sarandon, Wally Shawn, Billy Crystal, Mandy Patinkin and all the other people on cast and crew for the movie.

 To say that this book exceeded my expectations is nothing short of surprising because my expectations were relatively high. I loved listening to what happened behind the scenes and then watching the movie with completely new eyes. It was wonderful and glorious, and helped me remember all the great times I had with my family, especially experiencing this book during a very dark season of my life when my mom passed away. It was a sparkle of light in the darkness and brought a little more magic and love to are a rather gloomy time.

 I gave this book 5 stars.
