Ostatnie życzenie º Ohaterem oskarżonym i sędzią kochankiem i błaznem ofiarą i katem Przewrotna literacka robota łącząca walory moralitetu postmodernistycznej zabawy dla intelektualistów i przygodowego czytadła dla każdeg. I'm not one for as seen in the movie or tie in type books so I was initially dubious about reading The Last Wish until I learned it was the inspiration for the video game The Last Wish reads like an adult fairy tale; not because of graphic sex or violence but because of the melancholy and cynicism that permeate the characters It follows the story of Geralt a man who has become 'something ' than a man through training as a witcher Witchers are a specialized guild itinerant killers of basilisks; traveling slayers of dragons and vodniks who generally work for money killing those outlandish beasts that prey on humans Geralt is very much the last of his kind the drifter riding into towns to collect a bounty occasionally welcomed occasionally chasedWriting felt somewhat basic It has that same streamlined style; basic composition limited world building a focus on plot and external conflict Though it could have been told as a straight seuence of stories in Geralt's career Sapkowski has linked them together with Geralt telling one as background on how a particular conflict began or how he met a certain person Thus it slowly builds a picture of Geralt mosaic style Fairy tale lore forms the basis of some of the conflicts but the fairy tales are interpreted in unusual ways There's bits about towers and girls beasts and beauties a woman and some dwarves and so on that make their way into the storiesI could absolutely visualize how this book was turned into a video game though I haven't played it While it may have been written first I'd be surprised if it took much work to translate it into a game I imagine the game might be even interesting allowing for fleshing out of the monsters and world If there was a clear weakness for me it would have been the world building In the first story for instance one of the local headman complains about all the foul things there are preying on humanity In a later story there are hints that these foul things are fewer and fewer and are receding from the current age There isn't really enough background to understand the claims or build a world view; one has to just take these statements as context for this particular taleI also would have enjoyed greater detail on the 'monsters' In general detail was limited to the particular one in conflict with Geralt at that time but Sapkowski is in the habit of dropping far creature names without explanation All sorts of filth has sprung up Mahakam in the mountains is teeming with bogeymen it's kobolds and spriggans wherever you spit werewolves or some other vermin Fairies and rusalkas snatch children from villages These are all incidental but do serve to confuse a bit as I recognize names from a large assortment of ethnic traditions If Seanan McGuire had written this there would be loads of detail about the 'monsters'At any rate it's fun It doesn't all center on killing monsters Woven in are conflicts with sorcerers a fair amount of problem solving to everyone's satisfaction and sometimes problem solving to everyone's dissatisfaction It's diverting but easily finished without being filling kind of like Chex mix A notch up from potato chips a tad spicy and a little bit of difference from story to storyA solid three and a half stars Free read ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Andrzej Sapkowski
