The Last Wish Andrzej Sapkowski Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Geralt the Witcher-revered and hated-holds the line against the monsters plaguing humanity in this first book in the NYT bestselling series that inspired the blockbuster Witcher videogames. Soon to be a major Netflix series.
Geralt is a witcher.
Yet he is no ordinary killer-for-hire.
His sole purpose: to destroy the monsters that plague the world.
But not everything monstrous-looking is evil and not everything fair is good. . . and in every fairy tale there is a grain of truth.

User reviews about this book
Prob a player of the games, and someone who never reads this was amazing. I played all 3 Witcher games before reading this, I have watched all of Game of Thrones but never read the books, decided to give it a go for the Witcher Series and I’m glad I did, might try the Song Of Ice And Fire next but man this book was great can’t wait to read Sword of Destiny
Cannot download it on iPhone X
I’ve read this wonderful book before on my iPhone 6. Recently I bought an X and the download cannot be started. I am wondering if it happens to other devices other than an X.
Deep Intriguing Fiction
By Drew 25252252525262
Well written fictional world, great characters and short engaging stories.
I am looking forward to seeing where the books take Geralt of Rivia next.
I love the Witcher game so much that I wanted to know more about the characters of the game and their history so I could relate more in the game. Reading the book just made me appreciate the characters more and gave me a new understanding of the game. Amazing read!
I played the game first and from that it really intrigued me. The books are great and I really wish there more
Keeps you guessing
A collection of adventures that slowly provides insight into the character of the witcher. Just when you feel like you know him, he makes a decision that surprises you as the reader. You finish the book wanting to go on to the next one.
Couldn’t Put it Down
As a big fan of both the video games and (sadly) short-lived TV series, I’m wishing I’d had the patience to read the books first! Anyone criticising this book’s “lack of continuity” is forgetting that it’s a collection of short stories. It does a fantastic job with character development and setting the tone for future events to take place. Exciting, compelling, unique… Don’t bother me, I’m about to read them all!
A perfect mixture of darkness, humor, mystery, and violence. Throughout all the stories you can always pick out one detail; An ongoing feeling of dark loneliness.. Feeling like deep inside Geralt feels true sorrow for turning out how he is. The witcher is a must read, if you haven't got it, get it.
