The translation. Is. AWFUL. But that wasn't the only problem for me. I got more than a hundred pages in and, really, all that happened was a discussion of Ciri's period. That was the most eventful thing. I imagine this makes me a very bad Witcher fan, because I know other people go NUTS for the books, but it wasn't doing it for me, and with the truly terrible translation, I just decided not to try to power through it.
