  1. Bra godbitar
    Richard, 16 november 2011

    The Last Wish är en novellsamling med olika Geralt-berättelser. Vissa hänger samman mer än andra, och vissa storylines återkommer i den efterföljande boken The Blood of Elves. Generellt sett är det bra noveller, som plockar just väldigt intressanta situationer som Geralt har upplevt bland monster och män. Dock anser jag att man bör ha spelat spelen innan för att ha full behållning.

This beautifully written character-based story from Polish author Adrezej Sapkowski is a refreshing champion in a genre that's starting to get a little homogenic. While there is the occasional nod to traditional European fairy tales (Snow White, among others), much of the application of supertext and tropes are from a new point of view. "THE SPECUSPHERE"" It's refreshing to see another take on familiar elements. There's a fairy-tale quality to much of THE LAST WISH. Jonathan Wright, "SFX"" It is [his] world-weariness, combined with his battle-boned powers that make Geralt such an interesting character. Here's hoping THE LAST WISH is merely the opening chapter in his English language adventures. "EDGE magazine"" Sapkowski's 'The Last Wish' is a great collection of short stories centred around a witcher, Geralt - a rare sorcerous breed who hunts down the monstrous but is feared by the innocent. With a wonderous mix of Eastern European folklore and myth, beautiful princesses, mischievious demons and where all is not as it seems, 'The Last Wish' is a great read - perfect for dipping into or just reading cover to cover, as I did. "WATERSTONES.COM"" """The universe of Sapkowski's "The Witcher" is one of the most detailed and best-explored in modern fantasy, offering endless opportunities for fresh ideas ... Complex character relationships enrich this already complex world; this is the sort of series fantasy fans will cherish." ""B&N """ """A breath of fresh air in a well-worn genre. Don't miss it!" ""Dreamwatch""" "Sapkowski's "The Last Wish" is a great collection of short stories centered around a witcher, Geralt - a rare sorcerous breed who hunts down the monstrous but is feared by the innocent. With a wondrous mix of Eastern European folklore and myth, beautiful princesses, mischievous demons and where all is not as it seems, "The Last Wish" is a great read - perfect for dipping into or just reading cover to cover, as I did." ""Waterstones""" ""The Witcher "delivers one of the most intense and rewarding role-playing experiences this year."

The Last Wish is an enjoyable book full of stories both melancholy and comic."--The Wertzone "I really, really enjoyed this book ... None of the characters in Sapkowski's world are black or white; they are all shades of grey, including Geralt and the monsters."--The Deckled Edge "It is [his] world-weariness combined with his battle-honed powers that make Geralt such an interesting character.
