    B 72% More than Satisfactory NotesAn interesting premise and humorous to boot, but the story s flat, characters aren t very deep and the ending s weak.

    This book had some ground to make up to begin with because after checking its copyright date, all I could think was, It s a bookabout a magic apprenticein Englandwritten after Harry Potter And that meant that I was skeptical, although not to the degree that I thought the main character would be named Barry Cotter or something.Well, there is one big way in which it s like Harry Po

    Within the first few sentences my heart sank Oh no, I thought, fanciful purple prose attempting to set a magical aura about the opening scene GOTCHA shouted Stroud Well played, sir, well played.One thing The Amulet of Samarkand does not do is take itself too seriously That was a relief I had approached this with trepidation I d heard good things, but I wasn t in the mood for some

    If the quality of a book rested solely on its plot, this would be an excellent novel The general plot is, of course, standard fantasy fare save the world but its details and the world built to drive it is unique Also, there appears to be a second plot running under the main one which will obviously be continued in the later books, and this plot seems muchpromising.Story wise, this

    Such a wise cracking djinn, such a tiny, jerkish upstart You will absolutely devour this book It s hilarious Told from the very different viewpoints of Bartimaeus a smart aleck djinn who has lived thousands of years and has nothing to show for it but an I rock you don t attitude and Nathaniel 12 year old jerkwad apprentice whose lifelong dream is to be a huge im portant government o

    I really loved this book, the first of the Bartimaeus Trilogy.It s tempting to compare the book to the Harry Potter series Young boy Magic Sneaking around Breaking the rules Stern teachers But the similarities really end there.In Stroud s world, magicians have no power of their own their power lies in the knowledge of how to summon and enslave spirits, like the djinni Bartimaeus, to

    This is a difficult book to rate It was very well written, with an intriguing plot and engaging wit That being said, I must admit that it wasfrustrating than enjoyable for me.The main problem was that I disliked both of the main characters one is a wily demon Bartimaeus , and the other is a 12 year old kid who is way too smart for his own good Nathaniel I think you d get a similar res

    I don t know who or what recommended this to me, but I loved it It is hilarious, adventurous, fast paced, and creative In modern England, all the politicians and noblemen are magicians, and everyone else is a commoner The story begins with a young but gifted apprentice magician summoning a djinni genie , Bartimaeus He sends Bart off to steal the Amulet of Samarkand This sets in motion

    Maybe I m feeling slightly defensive, but I honestly believe some of the best books written today are in the childrens young adult section Well, the Bartimaeus trilogy by Jonathan Stroud is a book that fits completely into the great books written for children This is one of my favorite childrens book of all time, primarily because of the great characterization of its protagonist, Bartim

    Like many people in the early 2000s who found themselves clasped in the claws of fierce Pottermania, I was fond of trolling the internet for Potter related stuff Somewhere, on some website probably Mugglenet , some industrious soul listed a bunch of books to read while waiting for the next book to come out This series made the list I added it to mywishlist pronto, because that s how I ke
