Andrzej Sapkowski, David A. French – The Time of Contempt

The Time of Contempt: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!

Soon to be a major Netflix original series!

To protect his ward, Ciri, Geralt of Rivia, sends her away from the home of the Witchers to train with the sorceress Yennefer. But all is not well within the Wizard’s Guild in the second book of the NYT best-selling series that inspired the blockbuster video games.

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.

Andrzej Sapkowski, winner of the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement Award, started an international phenomenon with his Witcher series.

Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

I enjoyed the narration very much. However there is an error in the edition, regarding Ciri’s age. One of the chapters she spent time in Skellige with Crach at age 14, but Cintra had already been invaded at that time. I consulted someone who read the Polish version and they confirmed this was not right in the English version.
