Perhaps I let myself be influenced by all the positive hype surrounding this book, but Andrzej Sapkowski's The Last Wish fell decidedly short of my expectations. I wondered before I even read it if a collection of early short stories was the best way to introduce this author to a new audience and I feel even more strongly now that it was a mistake. The Last Wish is in fact a prequel to the main Witcher novel – Blood of Elves. With the Allowing the reader to discover more about the Witcher would have made for a much better reading experience. However With short stories, which was all in all quite an interesting way to introduce a character, there was little by the means of world building. The Witcher himself is Geralt, a member of a guild of bounty hunters who are systematically warped by The stories in The Last Wish are intended to introduce us to Geralt and his world. €�The Last Wish” is basically a set of short fantasy stories featuring the antics of Geralt of Rivia, a Witcher who is paid to hunt down various monsters. I liked the short story nature of it, picking out different events and I'm also a fan of series like Dune that introduce you to lots of characters and even jump around in time, which would be awesome to do in a Witcher-based video game world, I think. I had expected to take a little bit of time to Edit: I have since been informed that the Witcher series is actually a sequel to The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny (which is not currently available in English), two collections of short stories about the previous adventures of Geralt. The Witcher series debuted in 1990 with the short story collection The Witcher, the bulk of which was reprinted in 1993, with a few extra tales and a framing story, as The Last Wish. The Witcher 3 will be the final part of a story that began in The Witcher 1, but The Witcher series as a whole will live on. Despite the many different concepts relating to the world introduced in this book, including those of inter-species politics, this was a surprisingly easy read. After I finished the original Witcher on PC many years ago, I hunted down and bought The Last Wish, the only book translated into English at the time.
