Publisher Description

Introducing Geralt the Witcher - revered and hated - who holds the line against the monsters plaguing humanity in the bestselling series that inspired the Witcher video games and a major Netflix show.

Geralt of Rivia is a Witcher, a man whose magic powers and lifelong training have made him a brilliant fighter and a merciless assassin.

Yet he is no ordinary killer: he hunts the vile fiends that ravage the land and attack the innocent.

But not everything monstrous-looking is evil; not everything fair is good . . . and in every fairy tale there is a grain of truth.

Andrzej Sapkowski, winner of the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement award, started an international phenomenon with his Witcher series. The Last Wish is the perfect introduction to this one-of-a-kind fantasy world.

So Done With B*obs ,

Only one issue.

Everything in this book (and the whole series, at that) is good, except for one, exceptionally distracting thing.
Sapkowski is entirely unable to go more than four pages without describing some poor woman’s (and occasionally a child’s) br*asts. Constantly thinking up situations in which to “accidentally” reveal them to the characters, so that he might monologue for a bit about how beautiful their chests are. Understandable in a more steamy scene, but it’s not limited to those. At any moment, my unsuspecting eyes, expecting a sword fight or interesting spell, once again fell upon a description of some random woman’s voluptuous bosom. Utterly infuriating, and really distracting from the storyline and pacing.
If you ignore that though, the story is pretty good.

Almost perfect

I thought that this book was really interesting, however I rated it only four stars because the story was very hard for me to follow and it kept jumping to random times, without really explaining how or why geralt is there. Maybe they explain it more in the second book, or maybe I missed some things, but the story was genuinely interesting given the fact that I had no idea when it was or how it was relevant to the last chapter

The Last Wish

A very engaging read - the short chapters make for a page turner! So many fairy tales entwined in this book. Looking forward to reading the next instalment.
