I did enjoy this book. Although unlike his short stories this book starts a series. It takes the perspective of Geralt, Dandelion, Ciri and Triss Merigold. Maybe that's why it doesn't get great reviews as the short stories. Because it isn't solely about Geralt. But that is why I like it. Anyway I thought it was good.

Good for the elaborate world Sapkowski creates. Not so good for the marginally interesting political intrigue plots and some characters being as thin as gruel. Geralt, the anti-hero protagonist, is utterly devoid of a personality in this title. All we know of him is his devotion to Ciri, his mystical ability to have sex with every women he meets for no reason, and his sarcastic quips between periods of long silence and sparse words in all of his conversations. He's a boring character, but also a badass. Just give him a sword and read about him killing people and one-upping his more bookish comrades. Don't think about it too hard beyond that.

This book is rather uneventful for what is meant to be an introduction to the series. However, the last chapter is an absolute masterpiece, in my opinion, and made me beg for more from Sapkowski. He knows how to tell a story when he wants to.

Mixed feelings about this title. Some of the chapters were as gripping and iconoclastic as the most excellent stories in The Last Wish, but it nearly lost me when it got bogged down in the internal and external politics of imaginary kingdoms/wizards guilds, etc. Sapkowski is definitely at his best during the clever dialogue-only bits, or when sending up the foibles and vanities of authority figures. I will definitely carry on to read The Time of Contempt.
