A few days ago I finished listening to the audiobook for The Witcher: The Time of Contempt, the narration was a lot better than the first book which was read at a faster pace than other books. The story unfolded and was good in places, I enjoyed Ciri’s I’m never lost mindset and that was referenced nicely in the Witcher 3.
After playing through all 3 games, I was able to better picture the vast amount of characters and a much more clear idea of the setting. The overall story is a lot easier to follow and much more enjoyable having played the games first, then reading/listening to the books. It’s easy to see why CD Projekt Red adapted the Witcher series into games.
