Great book to read anywhere,
This review is from: The Night Watch (Paperback)
If your into reading books on the train, bus and other forms of public transport as well as in your own company, then this one is no exception to that! Though it may make you miss your stop because you can't pull yourself away from it, there is no reason why you couldn't read this book anywhere!
It's really well written, the level of detail is supremely good and the character/plot development is so detailed. You can really get into the characters and the plot is believable, and it will make you wish this reality existed!
It is devided into three sections with individual story lines. The first one covers Svetlana, a Russian woman with a curse vortex that is about to destroy the world. It ends in a lovely little fight between the Dark and the Light on the roof of a flat. The second is about a mysterious Light Magician killing Dark Ones illegally and how Anton needs to find out the killer. This results into the mention of Inqisition. The third part is about the job the Svetlana has to do and with re-writing destiny. Only fmale Light Magicians can do this.
Sergei Lukyanenko has visualised this reality very well and nothing seems to have been lost in translation. Reading about the Russian life style is also pretty interesting, and I love the mentions to the fact that the Others 'experimented' with Communism and World War II. It's a very good read and I can't wait to get the Day Watch.
