    One thought on “The Tower of Swallows”

    1. How can I give an outline of the plot of the sixth book of a series without giving huge spoilers So here you are, a huge spoiler Sufficient to say, the book picks up right where the previous left which is logical considering that nothing whatsoever was resolved by the end of that one actually I had a feeling it ended practically in mid sentence Let me just say that we will see the fate of all interesting major people from the previous installment None of them ended up with happily ever after sit [...]

    2. Believe it or not, the hero of this installment is not the Witcher, Yennefer or Ciri It s Andrzej Sapkowski and his masterful storytelling technique, which utilizes various POVs, narrative styles and multiple timelines across the centuries and locations He weaves a narrative yarn which should have been confusing but surprisingly turns out to be fresh, sharp and fun to read.I bow down before you in supreme awe.Mild spoilers are the necessary evil, they are necessary Sreyas, the tales of SPOILERS [...]

    3. Buddy read with Celise I m Ciri from Kaer Morhen I m a witcher I came here to kill Daaaamn.Quite possibly the best book in the main saga.Ramblings to come.

    4. This review can be found on Amaranthine Reads.The Witcher series by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski continues, with the Child Surprise Ciri travelling around with a bunch of thieves and bandits called the Rats, whilst Geralt, sorcerers and the Emperor send out people to find her.This series has plummeted to the very depths of tedium Every book has melded in to one and it s difficult for me to remember this particular one, though I do recall my consternation at the random change of narrative styl [...]

    5. 3.5 of 5 stars at the BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 2016 05 24 I am so in love with these audiobooks Peter Kenny is the incontrovertible voice of this series, making all my favorite characters come to life with his authentic reading style and superb acting Fan translations of these books have been around for a while, but I don t mind waiting longer if it means I can enjoy the audio editions every time I jump into a new book, it s like coming home to old friends.The Tower of Swallows picks up from [...]

    6. Buddy read with Markus, who actually led me to discover this amazing series in the first place.The previous book in The Witcher series was a little bit choppy, with each change in point of view requiring some adjustment By comparison, The Tower of Swallows is like a river being fed by a bunch of little streams All of the different characters scenes flow easily together to tell the larger story, and as a reader it s so easy to be carried along the current while observing all of the terrible thing [...]

    7. Tengo que admitir que este hombre cambia la forma de escribir en cada libro como se le antoja, pero me ha gustado mucho Me gusta c mo va creciendo el personaje de Ciri, curti ndose y no siendo una ni a de papa que tan s lo o vive mal o vive bien Se sabe salvar ella mismaTengo que admitir que tengo amor y pasi n por la literatura fant stica, pero odio esa literatura fant stica destinada a princesas y elfos blandurrios y sosos, con la misma moral y pensamiento, sin picos en personalidad Este libro [...]

    8. Qu barbaridad La mejor novela de la saga con diferencia M s de 300 p ginas donde casi todo son di logos que nos van mostrando los ltimos meses de la vida de Ciri Sapkowski nos lleva adelante y atr s en el tiempo para ir mostrando poco a poco lo que quiere Y todo esto, repito, con di logos, sin necesidad de meter con calzador informaci n Los personajes hablan sobre el mundo que les rodea y gracias a eso nosotros como lectores lo descubrimos Absolutamente brillante.Eso s , no s a qui n se le ocurr [...]

    9. No s qu decir, el final me ha dejado sin palabras Tengo que leer pronto el ltimo libro.Espero que Ciri y Geralt se reencuentren y no acabe muy mal la historia para ellos.

    10. Leave it to Mr Sapkowski to grant your wishes with a bucketful of lemons to suck on Not enough POVs, you said Here, have half a dozen of theem in every single chapter Too many jumps back and forth in the timeline, you said No, there wasn t enough of them Here, have some jumps back and forth And so on Personally, what I found most jarring was the late introduction of a certain revelation that came completely out of the blue, without the remotest of remote hints in any of the previous books, and [...]

    11. I did not read the official translation I read a fan translation Was still very good The tone was not lost from the official translations of the previous books I read Grammar and slang are great too Do not hesitate to read the fan translations They are free to download all over the place Just make sure to purchase the official copy later so Sapkowski and his translation team do not get shafted.This is the darkest of the books in the series Sapkowski adds a few new characters that you will love t [...]

    12. The best Witcher book so far After being absent most of the last book, it s good to see Ciri take centre stage She becomes a much darker character as the story progresses, thanks to the brutal mercenaries sent from different sides of the conflict to hunt her down Definitely still my favourite character and I can t wait to learn her fate in the final book There s a lot plot progression compared to Baptism of Fire which, while very well written and entertaining, seemed to suffer from middle book [...]

    14. Not the best, but still pretty good Lots of action, bit of intrigue and very little of the Witcher This book focuses on Ciri and her quest to find the Tower of the Swallow The Saga doesn t move on very much, but still an entertaining read Suffers from the Sane thing book three suffers from, stretching a story out to fill books I feel we could have got to this point midway through book 3.

    15. When I began reading the Witcher Saga, as I made progress through the series a fear began to grow in me Although I dismissed it at first now I ve come to the realisation that it was true Sapkowski had a story big enough for a novella and stretched it over five books Even though the book starts well and one gets the false sense of hope that the book is finally getting somewhere after the disaster of the previous books But one soon realises that despite turning page after page we get no where beca [...]

    16. Continuiamo con la storia da dove eravamo rimasti, cio con Ciri assieme ai ratti, Yennefer ancora dispersa e Geralt che cerca, in maniera discutibile, di trovare ciri.Partiamo proprio da Ciri, perch resta con i ratti sono stupidi, stupidi, stupidi e lei quando assieme a loro diventa altrettanto stupida Farsi fare tatuaggi per rendersi ancora pi riconoscibili ha un senso Per fortuna alla fine sono morti tutti quanti quindi non potranno fare altre stupidaggini nei prossimi libri.Triss per fortuna [...]

    17. I have enormous eyes, all the better to see you with shrieked the great, iron wolf I have enormous paws, all the better to seize and hug you with Everything about me is enormous, everything, and soon you will discover it for yourself Why are you looking at me so strangely, little girl Why do you not answer The witcher girl smiled I have a surprise for you Flourens Delannoy, The Surprise, from the book Fairy Tales and StoriesI finished this last night and then fiiiinally started the first Witcher [...]

    18. The I read into this series, the I have doubts with it For example, why people in this high fantasy swords magic world are using terms which are very similar with us modern men and women Why they seem to know about genetic engineering Does this mean the humans in this world had once come from our world Still, aside from my doubts and the lack of explanation, I still found myself enjoying this series The characters are still going strong whilst the political schemes plots are getting quite tire [...]

    19. Re read after 15 years.I think it s my favourite part of Witcher Saga Not only the tension reaches its peak the plot dashes wildly with the intensity of a hurricane, but author excels in using few clever tricks to keep the flow for instance he smartly continues 1 thread plot between scenes while changing characters, location time, but with keeping the focus on the same pivot element simple, but nicely done helps with the flow a lot.In general no complaints, well, maybe just one simplification of [...]

    20. It was good, not great.Three stars A good instalment in the series, but doesn t reach the heights of the previous books A little drawn out The story focuses mainly on Ciri, with cameos by Geralt that may or may not have happened The story was generally well told but a bit dull in parts, and I hope the author has saved up all the good stuff for the last book.

    21. Fu allora che si lev lo spaventoso gemito di una beann shie, annunciando una morte rapida e violenta, e attraverso il cielo nero come la pece si lanci al galoppo la caccia selvaggia Ciri fuori di testa, ormai logico Come rovinare un bel personaggio una guida di Andrzej Sapkowski Per fortuna si riprende un po nel finale ma passa tutto il libro ad essere odiosa e ooc da matti.La storia con Miste un nonsense completo All inizio ho pensato wow due personaggi lesbici il primo Filippa, anche se pure l [...]

    23. Well this novel is the dreaded Set up for the final battle tome Andrzej Sapkowski get all the characters moving towards each other to set up the final book in the series, which has finally been published in English in 2017 Plus for some reason the narrator Peter Kenny after 2 books decided to call Dandelion like the flower and not Dan de leon which just sounds better So why the 5 stars Because the novel had a lot of nice touches It slowed at times when the writing shifted away from the Witcher, [...]

    24. Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested Let me tell you The tower of Swallows should definitively be swallowed I am such mark for Witcher series but nevermind that this I awesome book I m Ciri of Kaer Morhen I m a witcher I ve come here to kill you At this point, you are on board with that you only thing you can say I go, girl, because the story told is that compelling.Shame only one book left.
