I was a little upset about the ending of this one, but I understand how it happened. I wasn't going to comment on it but ahh, Sapkowski just makes me care too much.
So here's for the icky bit. If Ciri is bisexual I'd be totally up for it.
More LGBT characters in fantasy please! Mistle female saves Ciri from being raped by Kaleigh male but then rapes her herself. This little girl is scared and alone, about to be raped by this dude. Along comes this woman who sends him packing, putting herself in the position of saviour, then lays down with Ciri herself. She's already traumatized and Mistle seems the better option over Kaleigh. Ciri who is young, scared, and curious is kind of into it for a second, which happens to people and makes sense, but Mistle totally took advantage of her.
Not cool. I think he wrote it well, more subtly and less glorifying than many authors. I'm not sure what I expected.
All of the relationships are so angsty that Ciri was going to have something bad happen to her at some point. I'm happy that the author doesn't shy away from that shit. If the next book picks up in the same place, or if the incident is ever mentioned again, I hope that he treats things properly.
He's been really good with his female characters so far, but I'm still nervous. I just feel so bad for Ciri. Who knows, maybe it's never mentioned again. It just seems like he was setting up The Rats to be characters in the next one, which I'm up for. Maybe I'm a horrible person but I enjoy being made to feel like crap over my favourite characters. Just handle it well, please. I know that characters don't need love interests to be interesting, especially in this genre, but Yennefer and Geralt are just such a fascinating love story that I expect it out of Sapkowski to do something like that for Ciri, who now seems to be his main character.
I just want her to fall in love with some awesome character, male or female. Give me that please! I recommend this series! George R. Martin fans, get it. Patrick Rothfuss fans, get it maybe? This series has that character growing up and learning their craft element, just seems like a similar subgenre.
Except this is better in my opinion, obviously. Video game nerds you were probably already here before me , get it! For a better review, check out the one I wrote for Blood of Elves linked below. I don't know what happened here. View all 17 comments. Apparently these books are rather big in Poland. I know this because a Polish woman told me so.
Apparently there are some rather successful videogames that have been based on these books. I know this because I've played one of them. It was good. Clearly these books have never been that big in the West, they haven't even all been translated yet and they were written in the early 90s, and it makes you doubt what's going on in the fantasy book publishing world.
It makes you wonder if there's a profo Apparently these books are rather big in Poland. Martin and Steven King. No wait, they just love making money and you can't make money from a Polish book, can you? It's a shame, the lack of hype surrounding these books, because they are really rather good; both well written, highly original and dare I say it ahead of their time.
On the face of it these books are steeped in the usual cliche, magicians, elves, swordsmen, monsters and a chosen child litter the pages and you'll find a lot of what you expected to find when perusing an extended fantasy epic series. No, these books don't reinvent the wheel but rather than running around and around it, doing the same old song and dance, they certainly have a bit of fun with it.
Firstly, these books are a weird mish-mash hybrid of fantasy styles. The Witcher, Geralt, is your typical brooding, loner, Sword and Sorcery protagonist making his way in a dangerous world filled with monsters. You'd expect him to be out there earning money and bedding women.
And he is, until he gets a fixation with the young child Ciri and decides to raise her as a Witcher. Genres clash and much of the tale is told from Ciri, the chosen one's point of view and we spend time watching her grow up in a dangerous and alien world. Secondly these books are stylistically very odd. It's a 5 book series but really they make up one whole rambling story and not individual chapters, each volume so far has just ended in the middle with no indicators or allusions to the end of this, or the beginning of the next volume.
More relevantly, the books have a weird episodic feel to them and each chapter tends to tell a scene that is only loosely connected to those around it, but taken as a whole the larger narrative slots into place very elegantly. Each chapter tends to be told in a dramatically different style and the story can easily shift from action scene, to political intrigue, to coming of age tale to sketchy flashback narratives.
It's audacious and I wonder sometimes if it really all works, but what's exciting is that the story constantly feels fresh and whilst one usually knows where these kinds of narratives are heading, there's an air of ambiguity and interest here that 80s fantasy epics began to lack.
This is a series that really bridges the high fantasy of the 80s with the gritty politics of the late 90s and as such it deserves to be read more.
I've only so far read the first two volumes didn't review 1 because it didn't feel self-contained but at this point I expect the quality to be maintained and this to be a thrilling ride to the finish.
Worth seeking out even though it hasn't actually been translated yet. Sorry, what's that all about again? I need more Geralt. Don't get me wrong, I love reading about Ciri, and Yennefer, and the random people they encounter, and the politics But I read these books for Geralt, and when he shows up the whole thing is just on a whole different level.
Basically, what I'm saying is that I'm still really enjoying the series, but I'm really hoping we get more of the, you know, main character?
That would be nice. Taking into account only the books of this saga that I have read so far,I can say that this is one of the rare few series where the sequels are better than the first book. I can't wait to read the next novel in the series and I hope that I won't be disappointed at the end. Feb 18, Nikola Pavlovic rated it really liked it. Serijal postaje sve bolji. Radnja konacno krece da se povezuje na pravi nacin.
Jos jedna knjiga i stizete do vrhunca serijala. This book is explosive and I can't wait to read the next one! First thoughts after finished reading: I don't want to judge too quickly, so I'll only rate this book after I finish reading its prequel which is waiting for me in the library. Still, I need to rant about a certain character: I know, she is only a 14 years old girl in this book and teenagers aren't supposed to be mature and considerate and I know her parents and grandmother were killed when she was just a kid and she still has nightmares over the whole traumatic experiences and all, BUT sh First thoughts after finished reading: I know, she is only a 14 years old girl in this book and teenagers aren't supposed to be mature and considerate and I know her parents and grandmother were killed when she was just a kid and she still has nightmares over the whole traumatic experiences and all, BUT she really hasn't endeared herself to me in this book.
I mean, by the end of the book view spoiler [she gets transmitted magically and accidentally to a deadly desert and she is forced to struggle for survival AND THEN suddenly she decides her two guardians, Geralt and Yennefer have always been lying to her and she doesn't care about these two anymore!?
She hasn't even once considered Geralt and Yennefer are out there doing what they can to save her, not once? And she doesn't care enough to check what have become of her guardians during the chaos? Added thoughts after re-reading: It's a 3. I like the story but I think there isn't enough action and stuff, the story is going somewhere but it isn't fast enough. However, I guess I just have to bring up more patience for the story, the characters and the author, which I'm pretty willing to do.

I'm so bummed. This series really isn't capturing my imagination and soul like I anticipated it would. I think I expected more monsters. More Geralt. More of a linear story. This is all world-domination and switching POVs and political conniving. I'm going to do it, guys.
I'm going to finish this series! The awesome game franchise is owed that much on my behalf. But I'm just super bummed on this one. Dare I say, I may actually It's not even in the book! I'm calling false advertising on this bullcrap. I think this is were I say goodbye to this series. There wasn't enough witcher-ing for me, too much "romance", and oh all the terrible women. I've had it with the bitching and the backstabbing, and the obsessing over looks. This was amazing. After almost nothing really happened in Blood of Elves, there is a lot happening in this one.
Yennefer and Geralt reunite, Ciri is still in danger but isn't that aware in the beginning, there are new great characters and all of this is told in wonderful little occurrences that made me happy, even though near the ending the book got really intense. I always love Sapkowski's style of writing characters and dialogs and how he has a partly poetic suffisticated writing style but doesn This was amazing.
I always love Sapkowski's style of writing characters and dialogs and how he has a partly poetic suffisticated writing style but doesn't mind getting close to vulgar at times. For the first time since The Last Wish I loved the plot just as much as the writing.
What I did notice within the first two witcher novels is that they aren't like normal books within a series: With other books I wouldn't like it but in Time of Contempt I still felt that it worked very well on its own. Also I'm finally beginning to like Ciri and being interested in her personal story. I never disliked her but the adult characters just really stole the spotlight from this standart teenage girl. After what happened at the last third of this book I finally feel like I really care about what's happening to her and she doesn't just feel like a motivation for Geralt anymore.
Sometime in the s, fantasy's center of gravity shifted. Moral ambiguity, violence, greed, vice, corruption and, above all, politics reigned in their stead. The gritty revolution was, and remains, a reaction to all the ridiculous tropes a Sometime in the s, fantasy's center of gravity shifted. The gritty revolution was, and remains, a reaction to all the ridiculous tropes and cliches that once defined fantasy. Regardless of whether and to what degree gritty fantasy has grown captive to its own tropes, it was at one point inarguably fresh and inarguably revolutionary.
The revolution did not, however, occur overnight. Rather, the transition occurred over the course the s; as a result, most of that decade's major works straddle both worlds.
Andrzej Sapkowski's Witcher cycle is one of these hybrid beasts, and perhaps the most profound and significant of them all. On the face, you have an Elric clone questing through a Tolkeinic world populated by nearly every sentient non-human creature ever touched upon in fantasy yes, there are even centaurs, werewolves and unicorns.
He is handsome! He scores with hot chicks! He has a wisecracking sidekick! He kicks ass and everyone knows it!
Only, if you peel off the bark of of this colorful and very traditional-seeming fantasy world, you discover the rot inside Read the full review on Nerds of a Feather, Flock Together! Esto se pone bueno.
I wasn't crazy about this installment. The cleverness and charm of the short stories is all but dead in this second novel. The first half of the book was awesome. Action packed with Geralt leading the story. Then Geralt is severely injured and exiles himself to Brokilon.
From here we receive another muddled up middle where Dandelion t finds Geralt and tells him what's going on in the outside world. We experience Dandelion's story through quickly changing POVs instead of having a dialogue explaini I wasn't crazy about this installment. We experience Dandelion's story through quickly changing POVs instead of having a dialogue explaining the events leading to the outbreak of all out war.
It was very confusing having to meet several new characters that we never see again just to tell a little story. Clever idea, poor execution. Perhaps it's mind blowing in Polish. I don't know. Then Geralt is absent for the second half of the book. We follow Ciri through some junk. She gets in trouble. Not terrible. But not great. Mildly recommend. The political intrigue turns up a notch in this second full-length Witcher novel.
Geralt is only in a small portion of the book, but the other characters—particular Ciri—are strong enough to carry the tale. It is an entertaining and fast moving book. Sapkowski is highly skilled at writing dialogue and crafting and refining his characters with their words.

A new favourite. Y eso tiene una pega: Toda la parte de los hechiceros es muy guay. Sigo adorando a Yennefer, sigo deseando que Triss se caiga de un precipicio y se abra la cabeza Simplemente UGH.
Ok, refleja muy bien el sufrimiento del personaje en ese momento. Aunque hay un detalle un poco WTF. En definitiva: El libro tiene cosas que me han gustado mucho y otras que no tanto. A list of complaints: Geralt, the morally ambiguous, fighting all kinds of monsters and also coming across all kinds of monstrous people.

And superficial. This is all so extraordinarily accurate and so fabulously point on I might faint any second now.
I mean, we all know that all women care about is bitching about each other. And bitching about men. And discussing men. And fighting over men. And shamelessly trying to seduce men while wearing barely-there, virtually nonexistent, see-through clothes. And hooking up with men. And bitching about other women who spend their time either discussing men or fighting about them or trying to seduce them while wearing barely-there, virtually nonexistent, see-through clothes, either before or after hooking up with them.
Something just occurred to me yes, it hurt. Very badly! Sapkowski doesn't devote half the quarter of the third of the time he spends detailing sluts and bitches' women's lack of clothing he does describing what men wear.
Strange, isn't? He probably forgot about it. Yeah, he must have. Besides, the men in his story have better, much more important things to do than worry about silly clothes. I mean, they are MEN, for fish's sake! They do great, serious, manly things and stuff. They have no time to waste on foolish frivolities. Something just occurred to me again if I keep this up I might end up in the E. Her name is Ciri. Sapkowski wanted to make her a badass.
