The Last Wish - Andrzej Sapkowski This had a very interesting setup to it. Because it was originally a bunch of short stories which were put together with a frame story to go in between. So in a sense each short story is like a flashback while the frame story is present time.

For me it was a little hard to get into this book because each story ends after an hour or so and you wish you could read more about. Which I believe is the reason Andrzej Sapkowski ended up writing seven more in regular novel form.

I was drawn to this book because I played the video game that was based on it and really enjoyed that. what I really liked is that a lot of the characters are the same from book to game. Another cool aspect about this book was the references to a few different fairy tales, and when the characters in the book referenced these fairy tales they talk as though they are contemporary events happening during the time of the book. For instance Geralt references a girl who escaped a tower by useing homemade rope (Rapunzel). Also another character talks about how a prince kissed a girl and woke her from a spell he had put her under.

All in all it was a good book but i suspect that I will enjoy the next book, The Blood of Elves, better because its in a regular novel format.
