I especially liked the language play that you can only truly appreciate reading it in original. The history is not exactly following the facts, but there is quite a few bits that give us the picture of the style of life in middle ages - great picture drawing with not always simple words.
Kept me glued to all three books till I read the last words and left wishing I haven't finished yet. Nov 01, Artus rated it it was amazing. You might know Andrzej Sapkowski as the creator of the famous "Witcher" series that has come to much international acclaim also through the adaptations as video games, board games, I feel like this triology is a true testiment to his growth as an author. His story-telling is somewhat softer, less blunt -- without losing any of it's edge or gravity.

You can read the books without any of that for sure, and pretend it's just a fantasy series. But it's so much more than that. I had no trouble accepting that characters and their development are not at the heart of the author's attention, that between the dozens of well-researched factoids, there are some inaccuracies around the historic context people find a book that really only was written years later , As a last note: I was "reading" these by listening, through Audible, in German language.
He did an absolutely fantastic job, with the voices, accents I loved every bit of it. Chances are not bad that I'll even revisit these books some day. Fully recommended.
