Daniel and Eldar are watching Night watch
(Ночной дозор) right now, and later we’re planning to enjoy Day Watch
(Дневной дозор) which we bought today. Movies are based on the homonymous novels by Sergey Lukyanenko (Сергей Лукьяненко).
Although imho those aren’t his best works (I read the whole trilogy — Night Watch, Day Watch, Dusk Watch
came out pretty nice. I watched it twice already. First time was frustrated – guess, my expectations were too high (worst thing that can screw up perception even of a great movie) and also the book was altered, adopted for big screen (which is normal in my understanding), but I remembered it too vividly and was annoyed a bit. My friends say that DW
is even better.
In general Lukyanenko is one of my favourite SF&F writers. I read almost all his published works, greatly enjoyed about 90% of them and even reread some couple of times.
Ha, just did some research on google and found out that there is one more book in the series — Final Watch
(Последний Дозор). Need to go to a Russian bookstore
And another new novel which I didn’t read yet — Rough Draft
(Черновик). Vah, want it now!!!!!
I’m reading pretty interesting fantasy book at the moment — Wizard’s first rule
by Terry Goodkind. As far as I understand, that’s a first book in a series. Reminds me of J.K. Rolling and her Haryy Potter masterpieces
(hehe, I’m not afraid of this word!) I call it light reading
Relaxes me and makes everyday routine a bit less dull.
