View all 6 comments. Sapkovski i ovde briljira. Moj naklon za ovo. Eighteen years after its original publication in Polish, this concluding volume of The Witcher series finally has its official English translation.
While fan translations have been around for quite a while now, honestly I thought it was well worth the wait, if nothing else because I got to enjoy the excellent audiobook edition. I started off by reading the books, but then on a whim decided to switch formats once I got to 3.
La dama del lago 1
I started off by reading the books, but then on a whim decided to switch formats once I got to Baptism of Fire and never looked back. Anyway, the final book of a series is always something special. By this time, the story vel taken over your mind and the characters have wormed their way into your heart.
You start to wonder to yourself what the long awaited finale might be like: Well, in the case of The Lady of the Lake, my thoughts were mixed. The story begins cryptically, with Sir Galahad of Arthurian legend fame stumbling upon Ciri bathing in a pond.
After the knight mistakes her for the Lady of the Lake which causes Ciri to correct his error, the two of them start talking and she begins to recount the tale of what she has spakowski up to since the Tower of Swallows.
It seemed that the portal she entered there had taken her to a different world, one where the Elves reigned. Seeing that she was trapped and at his mercy, the Elven king had proposed a bargain: Ciri could have her freedom…but only if she would agree to bear his child.
Meanwhile, back in her home world, the northern armies and the Nilfgaardian forces are still at war. Rama the middle of all this, Geralt and his companions are also continuing their search for Ciri, but with the recent abduction and imprisonment of Yennefer, the Witcher now has even more troubles llago his hands.
It vexes me admit this, but The Lady of the Lake was probably the most confusing of all the books. Not that any of them have shown much linear storytelling, but for this one Sapkowski takes devices like flashbacks, dream sequences, POV switches and time ddama to extremes. This not only made the book feel very disjointed and hard to follow, it also llago my enthusiasm for the story especially when we went on wild tangents that added zilch to the main plot or followed characters I could not care less about.
If it were up to me, I would also have axed much of the ending. In my opinion, too much of the fluff that came after the climax spoiled a lot of the impact. This was one of the aspects I fell in love with when I first picked up The Last Wish so long ago, and it just seemed so apt for this last book to bring me back to those memories.
In spite of everything, it was well worth it to see this saga through to the end. As always, Peter Kenny brings his best. His narration was a big reason why I stuck with the audiobooks for this series, because when he reads he brings the stories and characters to life.
And so ends the Witcher Saga, which I’ve been steadily reading throughout the last year. Everything is tied up, from the Wars with Nilfgaard and the Scoia’tael to the fates of most of the minor characters. There’s a lot of different endings here, many of them bittersweet. Heroes die, heroes survive, villains triumph as far as anyone can even be called a hero or villain in this series anyway.
Even though everything is resolved, you get the sense that the world is still a broken place, with future atrocities right around the corner. All of the above is refreshing stuff when you consider most other series in the genre. That being said, this was the weakest of the Witcher books.
The timeline jumps all over the place in this one, leaving you not always sure where you are. This has been used to great effect in previous instalments, a useful way to set the scene for big moments.
However, this time round Sapkowski goes off on some major tangents, not always leading anywhere and making me wonder what the purpose was. The final scene also baffled me, seemingly coming out of nowhere and leaving me scratching my head even now. This book still had its share of great moments, particularly the events of Stygga castle, which had me tearing through the pages to see how it would turn out.
Any scene with Bonhart was both fascinating and horrifying. What a great villain. Overall, this is still a fantastic series well worth a read to experience the epic journey. And if you don’t like the ending Feb 21, Isabel Bitterblau rated it really liked it. Sep 18, M. I thought the book overall was really good I was a bit disappointed in the conclusion, but only slightly as the witcher 3 the wild hunt kind of picks up the story from there. I think I finally figured out the thing that’s been bugging me about these books There’s a narrative technique, fairly common in film or TV, where a group of characters is having a discussion might be a full-on interrogation; might be a group of friends in a bar booth and somebody says, “So, we were in the village square, asking directions to the inn, and this urchin comes up to us And this is som I think I finally figured out the thing that’s been bugging me about these books And this is something that Sapkowski is doing constantly in the Witcher books — a discussion about past events which then transitions directly into relating those events.
So this is the final volume in Geralt’s original saga. As things begin, he and a group of companions are still hunting for his one-time ward Ciri, whose flight from much less pleasant pursuers has led her to some entirely unexpected places. Without wanting to give too much away, let’s just say that the title’s Arthurian allusion isn’t entirely poetic license. But, since this is the final volume, stakes will be raised even higher, there will be reunions, both desired and undesired, and things will reach what I found to be a satisfactory conclusion, albeit one in a bit of a minor key.
All told, despite any confusion I may have had, a worthwhile journey; and one of these years I’ll need to sit down and read the entire series straight through to see if that addresses any of the issues I was having. Uprkos tome, dajem i ovom delu visoku ocenu jer me je iznenadio, nasmejao, zabavio i svakako ostavio utisak na mene.
The woman smiled, jingling melodiously. How does it happenthought Ciri, what can it be ascribed to, that in all worlds, places and times, in all languages and dialects that one word always sounds comprehensible? I must ride to my mamma. My mamma is waiting for me.
Which is much less charitable than previous Witcher books — I really really like this series! I just wish it were shorter. And for example, this bit of dialogue when a sorceress takes on a new apprentice: As has been said before, you may make free use of it.
Caution, naturally, is advised. Moderation is particularly recommended during attempts to make brooms carry buckets of water. This whole book is concerned with the impact of legend, and the story of the witcher and the sorceress and the witcher girl having passed into myth.
The ending is dreamlike and ambiguous as a result. After thinking about it for a while, though… I find myself heartily recommending the first two Witcher books, i. Someday eventually I will get to play The Witcher 3! I found this book series all the Sapkowski books on my shelf here from playing a video game series The Witcher series by CD Projekt RED based on the universe of the games. Of the 7 books I read, 5 were fan translations I found via the internet as no English versions were available or on any foreseeable horizon.
The star ratings I have given the books are more based on the quality of the ideas behind the saga than on the actual writing Hopefully much was lost in translation. That being said, the ideas of the world of this series were refreshingly different I liked the idea that nothing was black and white The tone of the stories were on the grim side at times All in all, I enjoyed learning the origins of the world and the histories of the great characters I found so engrossing in the games which had far better writing than the English versions of these books.
So many things happened in this book that I can barely remember the first half, despite starting it a week ago! This series has always seemed to move slowly, which I like.
