I know well from the Computer version of this story the first scene, which was the disenchantment of the striga. I read it with a bland smile, a person who is typical of a familiar region. However the taming of this animal is closely connected to the
wound of Géralt and is thus recovered in the temple of Nenneke. There when talking to some people and wondering, he
begins a trip to more and less distant memories. The tale of the wolf's academy, Vesemir, who he addresses as a dad, present the assumptions
of the witcher's guild, and include a few stories about the monsters he had to beat.
Typically I'm not very interested in such stories. Single stories are incapable of pulling me into a solid story, even if linked by some common assumption or thread.
The situation here however proved
entirely inconsistent with my opinions.
In the main and on the basis of each segment, the boo. Andrzej Sapkowski is totally committed to Slavic culture.
From the past of our ancestors farms, towns, castles and their people. At the same time, everything is dusty and primitive to the era. Sometimes I had the impression that I would describe what areas I visited during weekends outside the city. I wanted to remember the children's stories in this marvelously adult way, and a moment later I had a very masculine game between royal rulers, thugs on the road, monsters, and our brave anti-governor. There are not just bestiary scares, basilisks, ghouls and vampires in our tray. We also speak about the beauty who fled her ball losing her
heel, or her stepmother who lived with 7 gnomes, chased by the princess. Stories at the edge of a grotesque are seriously asked, making it entirely new but narrow and right for existing adages, beliefs and myths. I was forced by curiosity
to shape my own opinion. I can confidently say that all the mystery around the series
is not over-rated by suggesting just this part of the novel. It's a great story, full of surprises, emotional battles, sharp jokes and a lot of fun.
