    Lansquenet sous Tannes, two hundred souls at most, nothan a blip on the fast road between Toulouse and Bordeaux Blink once, and it s gone One main street, a double row of dun colored half timbered houses leaning secretively together, a few laterals running parallel like the tines of a bent fork A church, aggressively whitewashed, in a square of little shops Farms scattered across the watchful

    Like so many people I read the book after I saw the movie I can see why people would be upset with the book after seeing the movie the book is a different story in many ways I think the tone of the book threw me offthan anything I have to say I really enjoyed both the book and the movie I think it is rare to read a book and have it be almost verbatim what you experience in the movie The Princess Bride is the only exception I can think of off the
