The story is very good and well-written with a wonderfully done twist in the end. I am glad because it both has the French original and the English translation. I tired reading it first in French but gave up because it somewhat was strangely written in French with a lot of words that exceeds my level. But the English translation is good also, easy to read and accessible. ...more

This is so well-written. It gave me a glimpse of Japanese culture, especially on their work culture. It also showed me how a foreigner lived and adjusted to a culture and society that is so enigmatic and unique like the Japanese. This book has lots of funny moments and also serious ones. It is like reading a sadomasochistic novel without the sex parts. Truly a wonderful read. The movie based on this is really great and faithful to the book. I definitely would read more of Amelie Nothomb. And I will reread this fantastic work again! Definitely!...more
I love this series so much and the movie was so damn fun! The movies gave justice to the book and I can even say they made it soTHE NIGHT WATCH SERIES
I love this series so much and the movie was so damn fun! The movies gave justice to the book and I can even say they made it so much better. I hope all the movies and books by this writer will progress forever. Can't wait for a new one! I so love this series. I saved all my money just to buy this series and it was so worth it. In fact I do not even like buying books in a series but this made me so happy that i just wanted more. I hope though that the series will end with Last Watch because I rather read individual and stand alone books by this author.
By the way, Day Watch the movie is not any related to the book. The basis for the movie Day Watch is the second novella of Night Watch with only some parts from the Day Watch book.
I love all the concept of this series. The battle between the Light and Dark Others are supreme. i love the way they trick each other into doing good or bad so that the other can do what they want. I also love the concept of the different levels of Twilight. In fact, I love everything in this series. It is speculative, sci-fi, fantasy, mythopoeic, everything good about a novel. Way to go!
As for this book, I think this is the best of all four. I learned a lot about Merlin. it is full of intrigue, wonderful scenes, intelligent parts and a lot more! I cannot wait for the next installment which according to what I read, will be released in Russia this MAY 2012. The English translation may take a year. I so love this series!!! I hope I can meet Sergei. I wanna make a Manila version of this series, like a fanfiction, if he would allow me. I'll try to contact this wonderful writer and I hope his other books will be translated into English as well....more
