One thought on “Day Watch

  1. 2014 The reasons why I will never read another one of Lukyanenko s books are at the bottom of this review 2013 Unless you happen to be a chessmaster in the neverending chess game of life, you are nothing but a pawn to be sacrificed when the strategy demands it The game is eternal only the time the figures spend on the checkered board is finite It really doesn t matter which side in the war you belong to because each will sacrifice its expendable pawns in the pursuit of victory And no pawn is eve [...]

  2. Nightwatch was told in the voice of just one of the Light ones, Anton This book continues the story, weaving in threads from the previous book while creating a whole nother cluster fuck for the characters involved It is brilliant It is also in three parts, but this time each part is told by a different Dark One The first part is told by a love struck witch called Alisa Honestly, the author did an amazing job, but I wasn t sure I could stand a whole book about her Luckily it is the perfect amount [...]

  3. I found this book of the Watch series really hard to get into.I suppose because Lukyanenko s morose and realistic writing was great for Night Watch but was totally depressing and frustrating in Day Watch There s only so much human weakness, moral reasoning and realistically bad endings I can take, okay I m a natural optimist It gets to me Ah Much better It was still well written The characters were still great Lukyanenko is still absolutely brilliant Sometimes though, I want to live in dream lan [...]

  5. Second book in the series, featuring the ongoing struggle between the dark and the light Like the first book, it is told in a series of three interwoven stories, but the changing narrative styles are somewhat hard to follow Much of the book describes the battle between these forces, and the two organizations established to monitor their actions The Night Watch, which is staffed by Light Magicians virtuous , and the Day Watch, which is staffed by Dark Magicians freedom loving libertarians At the [...]

  6. Another three stories, following on from the events of The Night Watch, which had resolved matters quite nicely, thank you There was a time when this series would have been published as a nanology not a trilogy The Nightwatch had a somewhat unsettling habit of switching from the first person perspective of Anton, Nightwatch Agent, to a third person perspective whenever the author felt the need to describe events Anton was not witness to The first story in the volume switches to a first person pe [...]

  7. The first two parts of this were exciting and full of mysteries and 5 star stories The last part was a mostly dry, russian, introspective, courtroom slog that seriously dinged my enjoyment I loved the two characters in the first two parts, I was constantly engaged in where they were going and how it related to the overall story They both had depth and although Lukyanenko clearly loves characters living inside their own heads, the first two were minimized enough to add to the story instead of wei [...]

  8. Continuing my rereading of the series and it is proving a satisfying experience, which is always the test of a good book for me The first time through one is taken up in the excitement of the storyline unfolding The second time around when one is relaxed and looking around the neighborhood so to speak is when a story shows staying power or the lack thereof.My original review is below Loneliness, dejection, the contempt or pity of people around you these are unpleasant feelings But they are prec [...]

  9. Please Note Read and reviewed in 2007.My Synopsis In this, the 2nd book of the Others series, we are again treated to three separate, yet intertwining stories first, the young Dark witch Alisa loses her powers in a struggle over an illegally practicing Dark witch and is sent to Artek the most elite of the camps for the Young Pioneers during the Soviet era to regain her strength There she falls in love with another of the camp leaders In the second story, a Finnish group of the Dark Ones called t [...]

  11. Se am se samo da mi je bila vrlo zabavna dok sam itala i ni eg vi e To me, dodu e, ne spre ava da pro itam i poslednji nastavak u serijalu, ve samo da knjizi dam ve u ocenu od dopala mi se.

  12. Experience is primarily the ability to restrain our fleeting impulses A solid sequel to a extraordinary start of series which is based on ambiguity and similarities between Light and Dark It wasn t disappointing in any way, but I found myself longing for something More Anton, I guess He is the true protagonist of the story and I don t see a reason for this experiment with changing POVs In the first part, a witch Alisa who temporarily loses her powers The head of the Dark Ones, Zabulon, sends he [...]

  13. 4.5 starsThis is the sequel to Night Watch and was wonderful All the best characters are back, including some new ones that totally blow you away This is basically a continuation of the first book I was a little disappointed it did not continue with the main character from book onebut after I got past that I LOVED IT It was refreshing to see how the dark ones went about their business Not as interesting a conclusion as in the first one but I think that was mainly because of the set up for the th [...]

  14. Summoning my inner Jenny Trout, I m going to summarize the essentials of the three parts of this book Spoilers, obviously, ahead view spoiler Part One Hi there, you re hot Hi there, you re also hot Sex Wait a second, you re a Dark one Holy shit, you re a light one Luke Skywalker like Nooooooooooooooooo all around But I love you But we must fight to the death death Part Two Who am I Who are you No, really, who am I We don t know who you are, but we don t like you very much Kills off one of the fe [...]

  15. This sequel to The Night Watch is structured into three stories just like Day Watch Sergei Lukyanenko explores characters we have already met but the perspective changes from the introspection of Anton and the Night Watch characters to delving into those of the Night Watch The whole concept of the Light and the Dark not being bad but different life choices is explored futher and Lukyanenko writing the Day Watch shows no partiality In fact a large point is made about both being necessary This is [...]

  16. This probably explains itI m unhappy because I thought there were twenty pages, but it s an excerpt from another in the series Luckily I have the next book I want to know why the movies don t really follow this plot very closely Maybe the answer is in book three I am resisting the urge to watch the movies Again.I changed my mind about liking the first one better They are both together, and cannot be separated It is still true that Anton Gorodetsky is still my favorite character, and he again ha [...]

  17. Day Watch, like it s prequel, is divided into three parts The first part was magnificent Told from the perspective of Alisa, a Dark One, readers delve further into the grey ambiguities of good and evil I was reduced to tears by the complexities of Alisa s nature She was so self serving, ruthless, and stubbornt there were moments of such tenderness, clearly illustrating her compassionate, humane side It was breathtaking.Part II was not as enjoyable for me One of my main problems with this section [...]

  18. This was a fun 300 page book Unfortunately, it continued for an additional 200 pages Like Night Watch, Day Watch introduces us to magicians, shape shifters, and vampires that must mind the crossing of t s and dotting of i s in magical law in order to keep a treaty between the powers of light and dark so that a conflagration at best or apocalypse at worst can be avoided There is always a way around pro forma, however, and the plot derives from the loopholes found, alternately, by the light and da [...]

  19. As with the previous installation from this series, I enjoyed the complexity of the novels They are chess games within chess games mixing history, politics, social engineering, mythology, and all sorts of other good things.The second story of the three was a little long and drawn out, but everything comes together I did have some fun trying to figure out who Vitaly was.Lukyanenko continues his meditation on the nature of good and evil through the d tante of the Watches as overseen by the Inquisi [...]

  20. In this interesting sequel to the book, Nightwatch, the epic battle between light and dark has a curious sort of beaurocracy to it Sergei Lukyanenko creates a world where the forces of Light and Darkness have spent the last millenium in an uneasy stalemate the balance of power maintained by a treaty and a group called the Inquisition.Yet, the forces of Light and Dark are not so different both are composed of Others, supernatural beings who begin as human but must choose which side to belong to T [...]

  23. This is the twenty first book I read on my commute, and back to the genre well I go A strange and wondrous sub area of genre which I like to call modern foreign urban magical horror Day Watch is actually the second book in a trilogy I read the first book, Night Watch, some time ago in the Pre Commute days about the agencies of the supernatural in Russia in the present day The author is Russian and the novels are translated into English Basic Premise of the Trilogy 1 powerful supernatural forces [...]

  24. As with the first book in the series sorry, at this point I can t think of it as a trilogy any longer, since there s now six of them , this is three interwoven novellas forming a single longer book Also as with the first, Andrew Bromfield seems to have done an excellent job of translating, there s so much subtlety and nuance here.So, the stories first up is Alisa, witch of the Day Watch She turned up as a minor character in The Night Watch Here she loses her magical ability after a battle with t [...]

  25. These Russian translated books are a bit hard to get into at first because the culture and some of the language is so different, but once you get into the first 20 pgs or so, it s pretty addictive This was the second book in the Nightwatch series and picks up a bit after the first one lets off I wish I could give it 3.5 stars because I m torn between liking it and REALLY liking it The writing is excellent, the main characters are well developed and the plot twists are expert The reader and Other [...]
