The Time of Contempt Finally, sorry but this was nottttttttt my type of plot I meanCiri her storyline is great but the rest and it was mostly the rest was so boring Soooo political, too many names and I just dont know who is screwing who So sadly I got detached from the plot.Putting this series on a break till I get ba I am odds with this series The Last Wish is a million miles away from what these have become, which is just generic fantasy that is badly written or translated In The Last Wish we have good battles with monsters, re tellings of our own fairytales and interesting characters In this series, which is made up of what are supposed to be full length books, we have absolutely none of that and it s very disappointing.The dialogue is the worst thing of all There is an abysmal attempt at humour, and an attempt to make the characters I suppose normal , or at least, not speaking in thees and thous However, it goes too far and all the characters speak the same, swear the same, call every woman a slut the same and are just dull and ridiculous both I don t know if it s the translation, the transcription or the original author, but a translator can only do so much with what they re given.Beyond the dialogue, everything is is pretty much just generic fantasy with battles, swords, magic and men calling all females sluts or bitches There is a small attempt to make interesting female characters, but just giving them magical powers doesn t do that All the female characters are at odds with each other, bitching about them behind their backs, wanting their men, talking about men, doing nothing but bitching or talking about men There is a wonderful opportunity here to make excellent female characters with power, working together, being helpful to each other, Krieg K Ndigt Sich An Ein Konvent Der Zauberer Soll Kl Ren, Wie Sie Sich In Dem Bevorstehenden Konflikt Verhalten Werden Am Vorabend Der Besprechungen Sieht Sich Geralt Einem Dickicht Undurchsichtiger Intrigen Und B Ndnisse Gegen Ber Der Geheimnisvolle Rience, Sein Alter Gegenspieler, Verfolgt Ciri, Die Prinzessin Von Cintra, Die Unter Geralts Schutz Steht Es Kommt Zu Einer Blutigen Konfrontation Ciri Gelingt Es Zu Fliehen, Doch Dann Findet Sie Sich In Einer Entsetzlichen W Ste Wieder Ein Verirrtes Einhorn Ist Ihr Einziger Gef Hrte Der Zweite Gro E Roman Aus Andrzej Sapkowskis Siebenb Ndiger Geralt Saga. If A Game of Thrones books were penned by Andrzej Sapkowski, he would ve written a whole installment on Red Wedding. This is my favorite book in the series so far Ciri and Geralt really go through some difficult changes which makes this novel all the interesting So whereas Blood of Elves sets up the idea of Ciri being at the center of courtly intrigue and politics, with Geralt and Yennefer trying to protect her Time of Contempt goes deep into that same intrigue and politics with an absolute cluster of a battle in the middle of the story Though the focus is split halfway between Ciri and Geralt, Ciri s tale is interesting this time around Her story manages to go through quite a lot of settings and conflicts over the course of the novel, which I really enjoyed For the first half of the book, things aren t happening as much as they are revealed Yet when things finally kicked off, the book was impossible to put down The reader gets to spend time in a relatively central position during the inciting incident, and most of the story after that up close and personal, instead of the typical description narrative afterwards.Andrzej Sapkowski s writing, as always, is impressive Whoever did this translation took painstaking care to make sure that the result is well written and beautiful Time of Contempt is many things It is Ummmm These books are maybe not worth your time I m reading them to get ready for the show coming to Netflix It s giving me great insight into the character, but since I ve never played the game, I feel a piece is missing.This one was enjoyable than the first I wish they weren t so c 4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum the first time ever, the English translations of the novels in Andrzej Sapkowski s The Witcher Saga series are being made into audiobooks, and I have been enjoying them immensely Thus far, four Witcher books have been published in this format, including the short story collection The Last Wish Today I ll be reviewing The Time of Contempt, the second full length novel in the sequence.The story beings where Blood of Elves left off, following Yennefer and Ciri s journey to Gors Velen where the sorceress hopes to continue her young apprentice s education by enrolling her into a school for magic Unhappy with these plans, Ciri devises a plan to escape and seek out Geralt, whom she has been told is not far from the city However, on the way she is intercepted by the Wild Hunt and given an unexpected choice.Meanwhile, political intrigue and back alley negotiations are happening in the shadows A power struggle is developing, and the players must choose sides How is a Witcher, sworn to neutrality, supposed to deal with this Especially if that Witcher, a staunch and princi Cuando se compara Gerarlt con Canci n de Hielo y Fuego hay una conversaci n del libro que ejemplifica muy bien la diferencia En el escudo, un pez de plata y corona alternado sobre campo cuarteado de azul y gules Que le den a la her ldica, Fenn El rey Qui n es el rey all As es, mientras G.R.R Martin dedica p ginas y p ginas a her ldicas y casas reales, en la saga del brujo van al grano, se dejan de pajas y lo hace r pido Si se huele guerra no hay que esperar 500 p ginas, la batalla sucede en el siguiente cap tulo A mi me encanta, se hace una gozada leerlo Al no profundizar en reyes y casas, lo malo es que uno puede perderse entre nombres, a n as no deja de ser secundario y no hace que se pierda el hilo de la historiaDe momento es el que m s me ha gustado de la saga La saga es de Geralt de Rivia pero la protagonista, tanto de este como del 3 , es indiscutiblemente Ciri La escena del cruce de la Sart n es lo mejor hasta ahora y aun abus The person everybody was searching for in the previous book was still at large with Geralt being one of the two people who could guess the whereabouts This means everybody was still conducting the search, but this time it became clear that the aim was to make sure the person in question is really dead just like the rumors started by Geralt stated As we all know sometimes little people can get in the way of movers and the shakers of the world and make them very much inconvenienced by just being alive and breathing This was exactly the case here A big political game went on with different parties hoping to outsmart and backstab everybody else In this climate nobody wanted any additional complications which Geralt and his prot g seems to bring despite the fact that he continued to do his damned to remain neutral Would it be a big spoiler to say he miserably failed at the end The first half of the book looked exactly like the previous one lots of talk and behind the scene machinations, but not much action Some secondary players that happened to be in the way of the mighty got removed, but nothing major happened The moment I hit 50% according to my ereader I was sure I would rate this one with 3 stars as I already saw practically the same happenings in book 3 In the second half it all began innocently enough Geralt woke up in I mistook stars reflected in a pond at night for those in the sky The narrative commences at what seems like a time of contempt indeed The Kings aren t conversing with the Mages as they have previously, the Nilfgaardian army is still planning for war, and the Scoia tael Squirrels are attacking humans in forests and villages Many parties are all still looking for the elusive Lion Cub, the child of Destiny, Cirilla After an interesting and quite tragic point of view chapter following a King s messenger called Aplegatt, where the worrying and uneasy times that the world is currently facing are expressed, we are introduced back to Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer Geralt is doing typical Witcher work and trying to find out about the mysterious magician Rience We are unfamiliar with the mage s motives or who his employer may be but it s clearly known he wants Ciri Yennefer and Ciri are travelling to Thanedd which is where a conclave of mages and enchantresses is set to take place shortly to discuss these times of contempt and how it aff
