“A Storm of Swords” By George R.R. Martin Review

Of the five contenders for power, one is dead, another in disfavor, and still the wars rage as alliances are made and broken. Joffrey sits on the Iron Throne, the uneasy ruler of the Seven Kingdoms. His most bitter rival, Lord Stannis, stands defeated and disgraced, victim of the sorceress who holds him in her thrall. Young Robb still rules the North from the fortress of Riverrun. Meanwhile, making her way across a blood-drenched continent is the exiled queen, Daenerys, mistress of the only three dragons still left in the world. And as opposing forces manoeuver for the final showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost limits of civilization, accompanied by a horde of mythical Others—a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses are unstoppable. As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords.

This one is the third book in the famous “A Song Of Ice And Fire” series. Which is the fantasy series which everyone should read before they die. 

The plot here is so fucking good that there aren’t any words to describe it in a good way. In this one we have the “Red Wedding” which for me is the most epic moment in all fantasy history ever. The plot here is so deep and easy to connect with that it will take you to a whole new world and you will forget everything around you will you read it. 

Because of the plot this book might be the best fantasy book I’ve read so far at least, which really speaks for itself here don’t it?

The more books you read in the “A Song Of Ice And Fire” series the more the plot gets deeper and deeper but also better and better. Which makes it to the best fantasy series so far for me at least. 

There are so much happening in this book that it won’t keep you uninterested, which makes this book as this whole series to a masterpiece. 

The twist in this book are the best twist I ever read or seen in any fantasy book or movie. Which really says a lot don’t it? This book has endless amazing twist which really made my day every time I’ve read this book.

The writing style seems to improve with every book in this series. And the writting style in this book is just so fucking good which makes this whole book come to live in your head and you can see everything which is happening in this book.

The character here are getting better and better. But also the original characters get fewer and fewer. Which makes this book so traumatising because you connect with all the major characters in this book and when they die you just want to continue reading this book. 

I give this book 5 / 5

“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald: The Original Screenplay” By J.K. Rowling Review

At the end of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured in New York with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escapes custody and sets about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists Newt, his former Hogwarts student, who agrees to help once again, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

This is the second book in the Fantastic Beasts book series which are the original screenplay from the movies. 

In this book we get introduced to French Ministry of Magic and new fantastic animals from the Wizarding World which makes me love this book even more.

The characters here are so fucking awesome, and so well done and presented to us. But that’s just the thing with the Harry Potter universe because every character in this universe are so well written that they feel like real people who I wouldn’t have any problem being best friends with.

The fact that we keep learning more and more about Newt Scamander, Jacob Kowalski and Gellert Grindelwald makes me love this book and this series so much more. And the more I read and learn more about the trio I just can’t help it but love them more and more. And I find myself relating more and more to Newt Scamander after watching and reading the Fantastic Beasts series. 

I gotta be honest and confess that Gellert Grindelwald might be on my top ranking of favourite characters from Harry Potter universe along side Severus Snape. I think that Severus Snape and Gellert Grindelwald are both underrated characters in the Wizarding world. It might be an unpopular opinion but now you know it.

The twist with Credence is so good, that it made me give more points to this book and the whole series. But of course you could see the twist before it happened when the tale with Phoenix was mentioned. 

The writing is the original screenplay so I’m not gonna talk about it because I’m not a screen writer and I don’t know how to review them. 

The plot was fucking awesome, and it was sort of like being a part of this story because you were following the characters so well. 

There are couple of inconsistencies in this book and the whole Fantastic Beasts series but I love the Wizarding wording so of course it won’t bring it down for me. 

And we finally get some scenes from Hogwarts while Dumbledore was still a professor and not the headmaster. And the fact that we learn more about Dumbledore is just brilliant. 

I give this book 5 / 5

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay” By by J.K. Rowling Review

When Magizoologist Newt Scamander arrives in New York, he intends his stay to be just a brief stopover. However, when his magical case is misplaced and some of Newt’s fantastic beasts escape, it spells trouble for everyone. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them marks the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling, author of the beloved and internationally bestselling Harry Potter books. Featuring a cast of remarkable characters, this is epic, adventure-packed storytelling at its very best.

We been waiting for a long time for new Harry Potter books and finally they are here. Of course this is a screenplay of the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them but it was still super fun to read it. Ive watched the movie when it first came out and since that time I forgot things which have happened in it and this book was a good reminder of what have happened. 

This book was super fun to read and it was super interesting and enjoyable as well. I couldn’t stop reading it because it was so interesting and so fun to read it.

Of course we can’t talk much about the writing style and the way it was written because it is a screenplay book of a movie so there are some limitations on how this book can be written. But I’ve still enjoyed it and I had fun reading it.

This book as well as the movie brings the Harry Potter universe to more adult level than the original 7 books of the Harry Potter series. And I loved it. And the fact that we learn more about characters and events before Harry Potter have been born brings more to universe and it makes it feel more real. 

The characters here or so brilliant and awesome. We learn more about important characters in the Harry Potter universe like Newt Scamander, Credence Barebone, Gellert Grindelwald and many more. By learning more about the characters the Harry Potter world becomes so much real and so much interesting.

The fact that the Harry Potter world expends and grows with the readers makes this series so unique.

The friendship between Newt Scamander and Jacob Kowalski reminds me of the friendship between Ron and Harry but also in a way the friendship between Newt and Jacob is unique because as we all know Newt is a wizard and Jacob is a mugle.

The fact that we get introduced to more creatures from the Harry Potter world really makes this books as well as the movie so much more unique because it really shows us that the wizarding world is so much bigger than we thought when the first Harry Potter book came out.

I give this book 5 / 5

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” By J.K. Rowling Review

It’s no longer safe for Harry at Hogwarts, so he and his best friends, Ron and Hermione, are on the run. Professor Dumbledore has given them clues about what they need to do to defeat the dark wizard, Lord Voldemort, once and for all, but it’s up to them to figure out what these hints and suggestions really mean. Their cross-country odyssey has them searching desperately for the answers, while evading capture or death at every turn. At the same time, their friendship, fortitude, and sense of right and wrong are tested in ways they never could have imagined. The ultimate battle between good and evil that closes out this final chapter of the epic series takes place where Harry’s Wizarding life began: at Hogwarts. The satisfying conclusion offers shocking last-minute twists, incredible acts of courage, powerful new forms of magic, and the resolution of many mysteries. Above all, this intense, cathartic book serves as a clear statement of the message at the heart of the Harry Potter series: that choice matters much more than destiny, and that love will always triumph over death

And yet again we are talking about an amazing Harry Potter book and it really hurts to say that this is the last book in the series. 

This book gave the series the ending which it deserved. Of course the ending is said because there are some very popular characters among the fans of this series who die. But this book really gives the the satisfaction that it is a fucking good end to a series which is so amazing as it possible gets. 

And the fact that we learn much more about Severus Snape in this book was what I’ve been waiting for since the first book in this series. And by learning more about him we see that he had much more impact on the whole series than we first thought. Which really made my whole day because as some of you might know he is my all time favourite character from the whole series. 

We also learned more about Dumbledore which was the best thing which possibly could happen because we learned that Dumbledore wasn’t really the all-good character and it changed my opinion about him. I went from liking him to just being “fuck this guy”. And it was because he was raising Harry Potter and teaching him to just wanting to kill him at the proper moment for the greater good. No one in their right mind would do that because how could you do that to a 17 year old child?

The writing style is really the best because as you read the book you can see everything which is described in this book in your head. Which really takes a brilliant author to make it happen. 

In this book there is a much more action than it was in the previous books in this series which I truly liked because you really couldn’t stop reading and once you started to read you just will not be able to stop. 

The only thing which pissed me off in this book was that some of the characters which I truly loved have been killed off. And that’s the only thing which I didn’t like about this book. 

After reading this book I’m kind of bipolar on it because im sad that the series is done but at the same time I’m glad that it is the last book because it was an amazing adding to Harry Potter series. 

I give this book 5 / 5 

“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” By J.K. Rowling Review

The war against Voldemort is not going well; even Muggle governments are noticing. Ron scans the obituary pages of the Daily Prophet, looking for familiar names. Dumbledore is absent from Hogwarts for long stretches of time, and the Order of the Phoenix has already suffered losses.  As in all wars, life goes on. The Weasley twins expand their business. Sixth-year students learn to Apparate – and lose a few eyebrows in the process. Teenagers flirt and fight and fall in love. Classes are never straightforward, through Harry receives some extraordinary help from the mysterious Half-Blood Prince.

Yet again we are talking about an amazing Harry Potter book. To be hoist I think that’s the best Harry Potter so far. Because the main characters are making a better decisions and are not just the children who can’t make good decisions anymore. Which really annoyed me in the first book.

The characters in this book are just wow. They are so well developed and they feel like really people which I would have no problem being good friends with. The characters in this book really feels much better than in the previous 5 books because we already know so much about them from the past 5 books. 

This book is much darker than the 5 previous books in this series but I’m here for it. Because it makes this series so much fun because it stoped to be this fairy tale like series and it turned in this book to be more like real life story. 

There is a twist at the end of this book which I’m sure everyone knows about but still I won’t say what the twist is in case if there is someone reading this review who haven’t read the books or watched the movies. 

The Death Eaters are more involved in this book which I love because the books should have more about the Death Eaters than they have. Because it makes it more fun. 

The writing style in this book is as amazing as it was in the 5 previous book. The writing style makes it feel like you are seeing the whole story in your head instead of reading it which I always love when it happens. 

The plot itself was probably the best Harry Potter plot so far when it comes to a book for itself instead of looking at it as a whole series. 

We learned more about what Dumbledore been up to and what he really knows about the Voldemort and Harry Potter situation. 

But I still missed seeing more of Slytherin house and seeing more of Snape which I’ve mentioned before in the Harry Potter book review that he is my all time favourite character from the Harry Potter universe. 

I give this book 5 / 5

“Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” By J.K. Rowling Review

There is a door at the end of a silent corridor. And it’s haunting Harry Pottter’s dreams. Why else would he be waking in the middle of the night, screaming in terror? Harry has a lot on his mind for this, his fifth year at Hogwarts: a Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher with a personality like poisoned honey; a big surprise on the Gryffindor Quidditch team; and the looming terror of the Ordinary Wizarding Level exams. But all these things pale next to the growing threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named – a threat that neither the magical government nor the authorities at Hogwarts can stop.

Just wow, this book as the entire series is so fucking good that I don’t have words to describe it.

However there is one thing which annoyed me with this book. And that thing is that the main action was left for the last 100 pages of this book and this book is over 800 pages long. And these first 700 pages are mostly about Dolores Umbridge drama and about Harry constantly talking about how he is not involved in anything. Which really annoyed me a lot because who in the right mind would let a 15 year old battle one of the greatest wizards of all time ? Because at the age of 15 you barely know anything at all. 

The writing style here was fucking good. The writing style felt more like a tale told over a fire at a summer camp rather than a 800 + pages book. I truly love when this happens and that’s why mum giving this book extra points for that. 

The characters in my opinion are getting better and better. Because they get more depth in them, they get more unique characters. And in this book we get more interesting characters in this series like Bellatrix Lestrange. The characters in this series feels like real human beings which Im the biggest fan of when it happens in books. 

The fact that we learned more about Professor Snape and about Lily and James Potter really makes this book better and more interesting. Because Snape, Lily and James are these characters in the series which deserve more space than they actually get so far at least. And of course Snape is my favourite character in the whole series makes it even more fun to learn more about his origin story. 

The plot itself here feels for the most part not that interesting as the ending. This is because of what I’ve mentioned before that these first 700 pages are mostly about Dolores Umbridge drama and about Harry constantly talking about how he is not involved in anything.

However the ending is just fucking brilliant and it is the reason why I’ve decided to give this book 5 out of 5 because it was so fucking good. It was so good that it made me forgive it for the death of one of my favourite characters in the series. If you know, you know who im talking about. I won’t say who it is just to not spoil the book for people who haven’t read lot yet but still want to enjoy the book without ay spoilers before they get into it. 

We also learn at the end of the book why Harry needs to go to Dursley’s every summer gives you more insights into how great this whole series actually is. 

I gotta say that I wish to see more of the Slytherins in the next 2 books in this series because I feel like we could have more of them. By the way we are talking about book 5 in the series so I think it’s time to revel which house I would want to belong to because no one can talk about Harry Potter without mentioning this fact. So the house which I would have want to be in is of course Slytherin. 

I give this book 5 / 5

“A Clash of Kings” By George R.R. Martin Review

A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. Two great leaders—Lord Eddard Stark and Robert Baratheon—who hold sway over an age of enforced peace are dead, victims of royal treachery. Now, from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war. 

Another amazing, awesome, incredible and beautiful fantasy book. This one is the second part in the “A song of ice and fire” book series. I gotta be honest here and say that this second book is less impressive than the first book in this book series but none a less it is still fucking brilliant.

This book has a lot to live up to and it doesn’t disappoint the reader. Which in my opinion is very good because when it comes to book series it tends to go down the hill after the first book but it doesn’t happen yet with this book series which im really thankful for because if the rest of the series is so good as the first two books then it might be my all time favorite book series.

The character are so awesome, they feel so fucking real. And every single character is so different from the rest which makes this book and whole series so unique as it is. Every character in this book has depth to them, they have characteristic which are unique only to them. Every character have things which they don’t like and like. As I’ve already said every character in this book feels like real human beings because there are so much into them. 

The writing style here is also as impressive as the characters. Because the writing style is so good that the pages fly past when you pick up the book and you will be siting for hours and hours reading this book without even noticing it. The writing style makes you seeing these things in your head which you are currently are reading about.

The plot in this book is just amazing. There is love, there is drama, there is death, there is the unknown, there is betrayal, there are big families who are fighting for the throne, there are friends, there are enemies, there are lover, there is intrigue, there is fighting, there is power struggle and there is so much more. When there is so much things in a book you just can’t help yourself but love it.

There is also history in this book of what was going on before the current events in this book and before the events in the first book. Whenever there is so much history in a book, how could you not love it ? Because most of the fantasy books now on days doesn’t have that aspect which this series so far has. 

This book also needs to get extra points for being a page-turner. The main reason why I didn’t get into this series sooner is because the size of ever book has always scared me. But after getting into this series I’ve resized that this series (at least so far) is a page turner which really helps because every book in this series is huge. But since it is a page turner you don’t really feel the size of every book because the pages go so fast by.

The dialogs between the characters in this book is also important to mention so here it is. The dialogos here are pretty good but some of them felt little bit off and unnatural but there are few of them. It takes couple points away from the rating but nothing major. 

I give this book 4 / 5

“A Game of Thrones” By George R.R. Martin Review

Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. Sweeping from a land of brutal cold to a distant summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, here is a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens. Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne; and a determined woman undertakes the most treacherous of journeys. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the Starks, their allies, and their enemies hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.

Let me start this review with saying that this book is so far the best books I’ve read so far and Ive read 250 +. Which really speaks for itself if you can tell. 

This book easily takes the cake for me when it comes to the best fantasy book I’ve read so far.

I had this book on my shelve unread for a good time and its because the size of it scared me every time I wanted to pick it up. But now I finally read it and I can honestly say that this book is in my top 10 books so far in life. 

The writing style is brilliant, incredible and amazing in every meaning of these three words. The writing style in this book makes you imagine the scenes in every page of this book. The writing style really drags you into the story and wont let you quit reading until you read the last page. 

This book is long, very long but when you start reading it you wont know when you did finish the book. It goes very fast because it drags you in and you will lose track of time when you first get into it. And thats how every book should be like. 

Because of books like this one I’m a huge book lover and a nerd like I am. 

As you might know already there are millions and millions of reviews on this book, but I felt like I need as well give my thoughts on this book. 

The setting of the whole story is just nothing like you have seen before in any fiction / fantasy book. Because it has so much into it. There are a whole world which George R R Martin have builded for us. There are many different families, places, problems, conflicts, drama, intrigues, conspiracy plots and so much more.

And every character and family has its own problems, roles etc. And every character is so different from each other that you almost cant believe that one person have gotten the idea and written the entire book. 

This book is so different from any other fantasy book because every character has their own behaviour, habits and style of talking, walking, acting etc. But in every other fantasy book the characters are so similar to each other that it is hard to tell them apart. And thats why I love these characters in this book and the book itself so much. Because every character have so much depth into them, sometimes they have so much depth that it feels like these characters are real people because they are so well written.

Sometimes these characters in this book feels like they have more depth and meaning in them than a lots of people in the real world. 

This book has everything a great book should have. It has action, drama, problems, travel, conspires, intrigues, dragons, hate, love, friendship, family bonds and so much more. 

This book should also get huge points for its world build up, because the world in this book is so big that you cant even remember every place which is mentioned in this book. And every place in this book have a lots of unique things about them which makes them stand out from the rest. 

And every big family in this book has characteristics which makes them who they are. And every family stands for something different and something deeper than just people who soon or later gonna die. And when one of these main characters die in this book you will become very sad because you already got sort of a bond with them throughout their journey in the book.

And we all the time get new and good characters which we as well form sort of a bond with them. Which is very good. 

The storyline is deep and it takes a lots of effort to even get a brief imagine of the storyline because it so deep and big.

I give this book 4 / 5

“Baptism of Fire” By Andrzej Sapkowski Review

The Wizards Guild has been shattered by a coup and, in the uproar, Geralt was seriously injured. The Witcher is supposed to be a guardian of the innocent, a protector of those in need, a defender against powerful and dangerous monsters that prey on men in dark times. But now that dark times have fallen upon the world, Geralt is helpless until he has recovered from his injuries. 

This is my favourite Witcher book so far. And gotta say that if the rest of the series gonna be so good or even better than this one Im here for it and I’m gonna keep reading.

The plot is pretty okay, which really surprised me because the previous book in this series was sort of MEH. The plot of this book is simply more or less non existent. 

The writing style is quit not there yet on the level with George R.R Martin but its getting there when we look again at the previous book in this series.

Don’t get me wrong the series is impressive and better than many other fantasy series but its not quit the “A Song Of Ice And Fire” series which if you didn’t know is my favourite fantasy series so far.

To be honest I’ve enjoyed this one a little more than the previous once in this series.

This book is more about Milva and Cahir rather than Geralt, which sort  of disappointed me.

I give this book 3 / 5

“The Time of Contempt” By Andrzej Sapkowski Book Review

Geralt is a witcher: guardian of the innocent; protector of those in need; a defender, in dark times, against some of the most frightening creatures of myth and legend. His task, now, is to protect Ciri. A child of prophecy, she will have the power to change the world for good or for ill — but only if she lives to use it.

So far it is the weakest book in The Witcher series. 

In this book for some reason Geralt stopped slaughtering monsters and began being generally your kind uncle who is arrogant but gives you cash whenever you ask for it. Which doesn’t suit Geralt because he supposed to be the bad ass witcher who is all about justice. 

The writing style again felt like a cross between Harry Potter and A Song of Ice and Fire Series. And again there were times where the writing style goes down hill for awhile. 

The thing which may annoy a lots of people is the vicious and deadly relationship drama attacks between Geralt and Yennefer which happens way too many times to even count it. Because of this, this book felt more like a romance / toxic relationship book than a fantasy book which a lots of people love.

And still women are treated as nothing more than sex toys which of course happened in the previous books as well. The author for the most part offers us a sharp,  splendid, expert, flawless depiction of the gentler females. This book is putting women in such a bad light that it is surprised that the left didn’t make it to the official feminist bible.

The plot was bad in this one. But I need to give the author points for actually trying on this one to take this book somewhere but of course with that plot you won’t get far.

The whole focus of this story was on the drama between Geralt and Yennefer and the action which should be in this book almost didn’t exist on this one. The spotlight in this book was on Geralt, Yennefer and sometimes of Ciri.

The storytelling is terrible and the potential was not even looked at by the author in this book.

The narration itself was extremely boring. Which doesn’t make the book better. 

There are parts where this book gives a huge YA fantasy vibe which again isn’t that great for someone who isn’t a fan of YA.

The characters are pretty okay. There are some good characters and there are some annoying characters. However these annoying characters really takes away this one. 

I give this book 2 / 5
