When I attended Phoenix Comic Con this year actor Cary Elwes was in attendance. When he was doing the meet and greet with the fans he said that he had been working on a book As You Wish. For those of us that knows where the title of the book comes from Princess Bride. His character Westly uses it, best line in the movie. The book is a behind the scenes look from the actors in the movie.

I'm a big Cary Elwes fan, so of course I wanted to support him. I pre-ordered the Kindle edition of the book on Amazon. ( Come on how many of love to read books the day that it comes out, I know I do.) One of my friends mentioned that the book was on and that the actors in the movie tell their stories. Who wouldn't love to hear Cary Elwes reading the book, honestly? He has a nice voice, and the book sounded a lot better with him reading it. 

As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride is the perfect book for fans of the movie. There were a lot of parts in this book that had me laughing so cried. It also makes me appericate the movie a lot more. Knowing all of the hard work and dedication that went into the making of the movie.

When the actors are taking about Andre' the Giant  made me love the gentle giant with a big heart even more. He had such a loving and caring spirit about him. According to the actors in the movie he had a great sense of humor.

If you are looking for a good read to add to your reading list. Please add this book, you will love reading or listening to every minute of this book.
