The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski
♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦
This series of short stories is just the beginning for the man we know as The Witcher, Geralt of Rivia. We learn how he came to have the name Butcher of Blaviken, how he and Yennefer came to know each other and become entangled in each other’s lives, and many other things. I love how well thought-out all of the characters are, they’re more than just the simple characters that video games sometimes portray people to be. These short stories give us the background we need to understand who all of these characters are and why they are important to us understanding Geralt. A wonderful way to start off The Witcher series.
The reason I started this series is because my husband just finished The Witcher III video game, and I was curious about the books it was based on. So, I’ve started the series and I’m glad to say that I’m very intrigued. So, I plan on going forward and you’ll get reviews of all the books.
Have you ever wanted to read a book a game/movie is based on? If so, what was it and what did you think of it? Leave you comments below and let me know.
