Book Review – The World of the Witcher

Before going into the actual book review, I first have to mention that one of the reasons why I think The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the best game I’ve ever played is because of it’s beautify story. The main story in the game was written in such a way that anyone how had either […]

Book Review – Lady of the Lake (fan translation)

First and foremost, a huge thanks to the awesome Witcher community for their work on this novel translation. Holyshit, this book is awesome, and the fact that it’s not the official English version shouldn’t persuade anyone from reading the last book in the Witcher saga. It did had a few minor spelling and grammar mistakes, however after all, even […]

Book Review – The Tower of the Swallow

The title of this book sparked a debate on the Witcher subreddit, the US translation has it as “The Tower of Swallows” while the UK has it as “The Tower of the Swallow”. The majority agreeing with the latter, upon finishing reading the book I also agree the correct title should’ve been The Tower of […]

Book Review – Baptism of Fire

The third book in the Witcher saga, and as of the time of this writing the last official English translated novel published. Baptism of Fire, continues Geralt’s journey to rescue Ciri. This book is mostly described by Geralt’s point of view, and on occasions from Ciri, and on lesser from Yennefer’s. NO SPOILERS: In The Witcher […]

Book Review – The Time of Contempt

The second novel of the epic Witcher saga, this book if fucking awesome. Browsing through the Witcher subreddit and forums (avoiding spoilers obviously), a lot of people tend to rate The Time of Comtempt as their least favorite book. In part, I can see why many people would have a hard time liking this book.  The Time of […]

Book Review – Sword of Destiny: Tales of The Witcher

Given that the official English translation of Sword of Destiny was published three months ago, in a way I’m glad I discovered The Witcher fairly late. This book is a collection of short stories and follow up of The Last Wish: Introducing The Witcher. NO SPOILERS: This book is divided into six different short stories. […]

Book Review – The Last Wish: Introducing The Witcher

I loved the main story in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, so it was an absolute no brainer that I was also going to read all the books of this amazing dark fantasy series. The original story/books are written in Polish, so initially I was a little worry the English translation might be either not […]

Goodbye physical books and hello e-books

It’s amazing how far I’ve come along, I recall first hearing about the concept of e-book and e-book readers back when Sony released their first e-book reader in 2006. At that time, and up until a few months ago, I was a total dead-tree format book purist. Man, has that changed. Roll the clock nine […]

R.I.P. Eduardo Galeano

If you’re an ordinary American, you probably have no idea who Eduardo Galeano is. Or yet, you might learn who he was thanks to the incident were former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez gave President Obama a copy of his book “Open Veins of Latina America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent”. Galeano was essentially the Noam […]
