Am book reader - witcher
What a great story. Fairy tales wound in like days of yore. i’m mostly a sci-fi fan but have been enchanted by Geralt of Rivia and the sorceress Yennifer.. Highly recommend the series.
hjgjgvjvjhgvmhgcjhgvukgg - Nice
Diag0nal - The books only make me love the Witcher more
Started with the games and now I am reading the books. This is by far one of my favorite franchises of all time!
Bashole - Excellent fantasy series
I decided to read the books before watching the series because, let’s be honest, the books are always better.
I’m glad I did, this book is very well done and a true joy to read. The storyline is really well laid out and it’s centered on sarcastic characters.
Having been in many life and death situations and knowing first hand the changes this makes to people it’s a pleasure to read something where the characters are tarnished with their lots in life.
ChrisDQ82 - Excellent
andrzej sapkowski has crafted an amazing collection of tales.
this is a collection of short stories interwoven with a single story that connects them all. each story references a different fairy tale.
the 1st about the princess Renfri is a thinly veiled reference to snow white and the 7 dwarves, following this if you look carefully you will find references to sleeping beauty, beauty and the beast, the bible in the book of revelation, Rumpelstiltskin, and others. and yet, the author takes these stories in completely new and unexpected directions.
despite the obvious inspiration from fairy tales, it’s clear this is the beginning of an original tale that will be epic in scope.
blackdragonashes - Dumb and short I want a refund!
I only read it because I was curious about the Netflix show. The book was SO much worse then I imagined. If I could give it a negative stars I would. I want a refund
Holder30 - Incredible
This book and series has given me a love for reading!
It'sLiterature - Critically Acclaimed Books, Game of 2015, Netflix Original Series
The title speaks for itself. The world of the Witcher is as rich, vibrant, and seamless as any other in the fantasy genre. That being said, do not read these books thinking that they are an extension of the show or video game. The books stand alone and bring something completely different to the table. Rather than being the fulcrum upon which the world’s fate turns, Geralt of Rivia is a largely passive but powerful bystander through which the story is told. Rather than being the one to enact change, Geralt more often than not comes into contact with agents of change and engages in moral and philosophical discussions about the repercussions of their actions. These pseudo-symposiums are punctuated with detailed monster biology, political intrigue, and brutal sword fights. Be prepared to see classic fantasy tropes told through the lens of a truly neutral character.

I didn’t liked
VanillaTaco02 - AMAZING
Just went through about 20 some playthroughs of The Witcher 3, (not joking) and just got the content jitters. Finally picked up the first book and by god, it’s fantastic! I can’t wait to read the rest!
JV@work - Boring...
Bunch of disconnected stories... pretty boring book.
Hdjekemensb7 - Witcher 1 review
This collection of short stories is very good and entertaining. Some are better than others, but I enjoyed it throughout. If you are a fan of the games or want to play them in the future this book is a great place to gain some knowledge on the world and characters.
aminodna - The Witcher The Last Wish
Amazing, very in depth and grasping! Love the story arcs and how it is written! Onto the next book Swords of Destiny!!!
•ΞHΔßż.! ♛ - Amazing
Read this book, it is well written, and it is very interesting and fun to read!! JUST DO IT!
Dylan928371819 - Great title
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
WillYCohle - 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.
Yans977 - Very good
Drew 25252252525262 - Deep Intriguing Fiction
Well written fictional world, great characters and short engaging stories.
I am looking forward to seeing where the books take Geralt of Rivia next.
JoshuaMD86 - Awesome
mrszorak44 - Awesome
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!
Bc5584 - Love it!
I played the game first and from that it really intrigued me. The books are great and I really wish there more
Laladien - 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.
Symwen - 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!
Beasty17379054110064 - Flawless
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.
Nicko 50 - Amazing
Chieftain Keeftan - Fantastic fantasy
I'm a huge fan of the witches video games and that's what drew me to the books. I didn't know what to expect but I can say this book is fantastically written and a page turner. Gerald of Rivia has become my favorite fictional protagonist and his story is becoming one of my favorite fantasy stories ever. If you're a fantasy fan or a fan of the video games this is a MUST
B.H. Vrux - A gripping setting, but thinly developed.
A great start to a world I've come to love, but very little actually happens in the first book.
Als2Sick - 5/5
I liked it
Pie.iz.good.fur.u. - Almost Perfect!
This book is great and tells some great and well written stories about Geralt of Rivia, but a confusing overarching plot with an almost nonsensical cliffhanger holds it back from being perfect.
Victor H. - Definitively Worth It
A fun read about some of Geralt's most interesting adventures. The book is well written, and always gives the reader an interesting twist. Definitively worth the read if you are a fantasy fan, or want to know the backstory to the Witcher games.
SanguiloPraetoris - If Conan the Barbarian (sort of) used Magic...
...he'd be Geralt of Rivia.
I'm not giving my name... - Excellent
Jack Sawyer1001 - Excellent read.
Have the Xbox game Wicher 2 and was curious about how it all began. This book will be my first purchase, I'll be buying the next two. Well written, interesting and different. Very refreshing.
Danzig424 - The Witcher oh yeah !
After playing both Witcher games i became enthralled with the world and characters, amd political and dark themes this book portrayed. Its not your typical medieval tale or tales as this book is made out to be . Geralt is interesting and the way he interacts with people is amazing some very creative writing cant wait for the rest of the books to be translated .
Shootsalot - The last wish
Simplistic, uses slightly altered fairy tales, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Beauty and the Beast and others. A disjointed series of short stories with no continuity.
Snuggalorian - Hidden gem, must read
This book is what I call a rarity. It is not often that I find a book that I read entirely in one single night, and it is a longer book. The book itself inspired an entire video-game series, so needless to say it is one of the best I've read in some time. If you're into ancient mythical times, then look no further.
The plot is fairly complex with both books from this author should you be interested in a second helping, though the read itself is fairly ways to follow. I will be surprised if this book does not create a movie, though casting the right person to play Geralt of rivia should prove to be impossible.
My best opinion for you if you are on the 'I don't know' phase is to grab the sample and just read. I was captivated for the majority of that alone.
Robe & Wizard Hat - A world in gray
A unique and thoroughly enjoyable read from beginning to end. Presents many interesting and fresh takes on fantasy cliches and human nature. The short stories are well written (and translated )for the most part, but occasionally the dialogue and action are hard to follow. Modern words, swears, and phrases are often used which can be immersion breaking for some. All and all an excellent introduction to a very different series.

Steven C Blomkamp - Thoroughly entertaining
Having been introduced to Andrezej Sapkowski's work through the excellent Witcher RPGs, I was still hesitant to read the original literature that inspired the games. To be honest, I don't read novels often. At all, in fact. But one day I decided to take the plunge and thank goodness I did - if you loved the games or even just the sound of dark fantasy grounded with moral ambiguity, refreshingly realistic characters and startlingly realized action, you will definitely enjoy this book.
I'm getting started on his second Witcher book, Blood of Elves, immediately. And then I will probably play through the games again as I can't seem to get enough. enjoy!
Stwear - Not impressed
Reads like a series of short stories with one protagonist and no plot or character development except main character. Unsatisfying but decently written with some interesting adversaries and moral commentary.
Cerberus_17 - Amazing
This book is an amazing read from start to finish.
