Travis Bradberry once stated, “Everyone knows that life isn't fair. Saying it's not fair suggests that you think life is supposed to be fair, which makes you look immature and naive.” Things don’t always go the way people want them to and sometimes they do not want to accept that. The characters in William Goldman’s novel, The Princess Bride, face difficult trials, where they nearly die in most of them. Additionally, none of the characters get a happy ending. Goldman develops the theme, “life isn’t fair” by providing details from his own life, explaining the complicated relationship between the characters Westley and Buttercup, and describing the situations the characters were in to save Princess Buttercup.
