The Princess Bride, by William Goldman

The Princess Bride, written by William Goldman, is a fictional tale which involves romance, adventure, and a great deal of memorable characters. It involves a normal "farm boy" who seeks desperate measures to win the heart of his princess. Don't be fooled by the typical title or plot line - it's a true classic. I enjoyed this book so much, and can say it's one of my favorites. It has so many dimensions to it that it's almost certain you'll love this story. It's an addicting and quick read; my four-hundred-some pages were done in four hours.
