Wiedzmin books (the first two volumes are stories on which this fatal movie is based) and five further volumes i.e. Wiedzmin Saga are perfectly written piece of fantasy literature. I can agree that their author borrowed a lot from Tolkien but he added so much his own spice that at least in my opinion
they are much more exciting that Tolkien's Middleearth Saga.
If only we(Poles) had someone like Peter Jackson to direct the movie based on Wiedzmin Saga (and enough money, but not so much as for LOTR) that potential movie would shake Hollywood.
But for now we can only cry in despair that someone spoilt such piece of great fantasy.
Kind regards, Paul Wiedzmin's(book version) fan
