- one of my favorite movies of all time
- a really good book
- entirely different
- yet somehow the film is true to the book

very impressive, all told.

ObNothingAtAll: I have "Princess Bride" and "Silent Gondoliers"
shelved under Morgenstern on my bookshelves (I also have "Paarfi"
and "Baggins" sections, but no "Number Ten Ox".  It has to be a
perfect conceit that the book in hand was written by the false
author before I'll do it).

ObDWJ: Er. DWJ takes up rather a lot of shelf space?

Ye knowe ek, that in forme of speche is chaunge
Withinne a thousand yere, and wordes tho
That hadden pris, now wonder nyce and straunge
Us thinketh hem, and yit they spake hem so.  -- Chaucer
