Book Review: The Last Wish By Andrzej Sapkowski

“Evil is evil, Lesser, greater, middling, it’s all the same. Proportions are negotiated, boundaries blurred. I’m not a pious hermit. I haven’t done only good in my life. But if I’m to choose between one evil and another, then I prefer not to choose at all.”


The Witcher is quite famous in the gaming community as  I am not gamer so I didn’t know anything about him before. So to me, the witcher was new when I watched The Witcher show on Netflix. I thought it like any other fantasy show like a game of thrones. But I was completely wrong though It is a fantasy show it is quite different from other shows. And I was impressed by the witcher character and Henry cavil did an awesome job of portraying him. I finished the show in 2-3 days. Later I wanted to know more about Witcher and couldn’t wait for season 2 so I started reading the books.

The Last Wish is generally the first book in The Witcher series. It is a collection of short stories. In which book introduces Geralt of Rivia, the witcher who roam around the world to find work. His work is finding a dangerous monster that ravages lands and attacks innocents and killing them for people with a small fee. There are 6 stories which tell various adventures of the witcher.

These stories are beautifully written. Each story is like a fairy tale having different characters where witcher is travelling. Stories are great, where each story explore the witcher universe which contains monsters, elves and vampires and many more. the world building is awesome. Out of all stories, my favourite one on is the lesser evil which is awesome. If you want to know more about The witcher and read short fantasy stories. You should definitely read this.
