A Stunningly Amazing and Unique Novel

The first book about the one-of-a-kind character, by the name of Geralt of Rivia. If you're not the type to read the physical book, you can instead buy the audiobook which just came out. If you're not into books at all, go play one of the games. I'd recommend the second or the soon-to-be-released, third installment of the award winning game series. Personally I love story of The Witcher so much that I wish to do it all. Both the books and the games, or anything else to come out. I highly recommend this book to anyone who's a fan of any novels such as Game of Thrones or even just fantasy at all.
The narrator has a great voice and does a superb job of expressing all of the characters, emotions and attitudes very well. The book starts off rather blunt, with an interesting sex scene between Geralt and a Water Nymph. The scene previously mentioned turns out to be a dream, but such scenes only help you to better understand the Witcher. The Last Wish relates to A Song of Ice and Fire very much in the manner of gruesome and violent fight scene as well as a few intimate sexual moments. However unlike George R.R. Martin's masterpiece this astonishing story has a wider variety of majestic yet wild beasts and monsters. These are just some of the reason why shortly after finishing the audiobook it has become one of my favorite series and I plan to read the others.

Very enjoyable, excellent voice work and pacing.

Bought it as a companion to the witcher 3,was not disappointed. A worthy introduction to the witcher's story, with tales about Yennefer and Dandelion. I can easily recommend.
