Reading progress update: I've read 264 out of 512 pages.

The Princess Bride: S. Morgenstern's Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure - William Goldman

I have new appreciation for Cary Elwes' sheer charisma in the film. Westley is such an unenjoyable Mary Sue character here. If I weren't reading this for my IRL book club, I would have DNF'd it a hundred pages ago.

 

Prince Humperdinck has somehow managed to become my favorite character in the meanwhile.
