Publisher's Summary

Geralt of Rivia is a witcher. A cunning sorcerer. A merciless assassin.
And a cold-blooded killer.
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.
The international hit that inspired the video game The Witcher.
©2008 Andrzej Sapkowski (P)2015 Hachette Audio

Fantastic! I feel lucky to have found this book.

If you could sum up The Last Wish in three words, what would they be?

The Last Wish is enchanting and clever. The stories are nonlinear, but the links are easy to follow. I fell in love with Geralt and his story, but I was totally won over by the reinterpretation of familiar fairy tales in the Last Wish and in Sword of Destiny.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Wish?

The whole book was memorable- love how Sapkowski incorporates complicated questions about morality, religion, diversity, progress, and love into the stories and the characters. Geralt never disappoints with his perspective or his choices.

What about Peter Kenny’s performance did you like?

This was the first book I listened to that Kenny performed, and now I am choosing books based on his narration-- he's a great performer. I can't believe he actually does all of the voices, each character has a unique and recognizable voice-- even when you don't encounter them for several chapters, they're consistent. I'm sure the books are great to read, but Kenny's performance adds a layer of magic.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I usually listen to books while I do chores like laundry and dishes-- my house was spotless by the time I finished this book. I am so glad it's a series so I can go right to the next one.
