Review of 'Sword of Destiny' on 'Goodreads'
The Witcher, the Sword of destiny is the second collection of short stories by Sapkowski.
It discusses various ethical, moral, and unnatural subjects, such as what makes someone a monster, and a big recurrent motive is destiny. Does it exist? Are peoplebreally destined for each other?
I like the way Sapkowski implies that destiny can only exist when people believe, and strive for it; more is needed than just destiny for destiny to happen. And I think personal beliefs and faith is required for destiny to happen.
Either way, the book really goes more in depth of Geralt as a character, and it elucidates his reluctance to take certain jobs. For example, in "a shard of ice" he ultimately decides to reject a job, because he doesn't perceive certain species as "monsters", due to them having a consciousness.
Ultimately, I'll give it a 4/5.
