The Bartimaeus Trilogy is possibly one of the best series I have ever read in my short life Honestly Stroud captivates his readers with this remarkable world filled with magic and demons, and then manages to pull the carpet out from under us, teaching us that not everything is as it seems This world set in an alternate universe London speaks volumes about the about class and societal issues and yet has the reader or maybe just me wishing that this world actually existed.The trilogy s two in The Bartimaeus Trilogy is possibly one of the best series I have ever read in my short life Honestly Stroud captivates his readers with this remarkable world filled with magic and demons, and then manages to pull the carpet out from under us, teaching us that not everything is as it seems This world set in an alternate universe London speaks volumes about the about class and societal issues and yet has the reader or maybe just me wishing that this world actually existed.The trilogy s two initial main characters serve to contrast each other so well that they simply could not exist without the other Nathaniel is an ambitious young boy later, man , with good intentions but not always the best of ideas He has a tendency to get ahead of himself and allow that ambition to overtake him and lead him into trouble, again and again view spoiler Nathaniel is so well developed and evolved through out all three books that although he loses sight of who he is and has the reader about five seconds from ringing his neck quite a few times, by the end of the third installation we feel his loss painfully hide spoiler Bartimaeus is a snarky, sarcastic, but all too lovable despite his sometimes monstrous ways demon whose pride and intelligence have been known to backfire against him Although at first he appears as just a bit of comic relief, we eventually come to sympathize with him and feel for the plight of his kind the supposed demons.All three novels are well executed and extremely engaging, tossing action scene after action scene in way that manages to refrain from becoming too overwhelming, and although the second book did get a bit dull halfway through, it does pick up the pace again Stroud s writing style leaves nothing to the imagination, but manages to remain easy to read and often, rather humorous view spoiler While the last novel touches just briefly on the possibility of romance, it manages not to murder the whole series with some sappy love story., but instead leaves it all to the reader s imagination and keeps us wondering what could have been hide spoiler What interests me the most about the series, however, is Stroud s seemingly effortless jump from points of view Often we find that an author excels at one particular point of view and the otherswell, we ll just not go there However, Stroud is able to write in both 1st person and 3rd person omniscient smoothly, establishing two distinct voices at the same time I ve yet to find an author who manages to write in both voices as wonderfully as he does But then, I might just be biased on the whole topic The Best Book Ever.My first encounter with The Amulet of Samarkand was purely coincidental It was just another day for me to went hunting for somebooks and I pick it up just out of curiosity and I m glad that I did.When all my friends worship Harrypotter, I Adore Bartimaeus much much moarrr Seriously, I think HP is pale compare to Bartimaeus Not just plot wise, as HP somewhat predictable, but also the Character and an originality of the idea Bartimeaus exceed many magic based fantasy n The Best Book Ever.My first encounter with The Amulet of Samarkand was purely coincidental It was just another day for me to went hunting for somebooks and I pick it up just out of curiosity and I m glad that I did.When all my friends worship Harrypotter, I Adore Bartimaeus much much moarrr Seriously, I think HP is pale compare to Bartimaeus Not just plot wise, as HP somewhat predictable, but also the Character and an originality of the idea Bartimeaus exceed many magic based fantasy novel.I like the idea of a whole new world where magician rules and even though they have the power, it s not really their own as they have to borrow it from the djin And thus creates unique interaction between magician, djinn and common people.There is also nathaniel and Bertimaeus and their unique bond that are full of manipulation and trick yet rich of emotions There are trust, distrust, respect, disgust, hate, and love I can t stop reading this series untill the very end If I were to be shallow, I d say The Bartimaeus Trilogy is somewhat like Harry Potter meets Faust If I were honest, I d say that it s not like that at all.Imagine a London where magicians not only form the top crust of society, but are educated specifically to work for the government From lowly paper pusher to the Prime Minister himself all of them are versed in magic which may not be a good thing for the un magical general populace.And then there s Nathaniel His birth parents gave him up If I were to be shallow, I d say The Bartimaeus Trilogy is somewhat like Harry Potter meets Faust If I were honest, I d say that it s not like that at all.Imagine a London where magicians not only form the top crust of society, but are educated specifically to work for the government From lowly paper pusher to the Prime Minister himself all of them are versed in magic which may not be a good thing for the un magical general populace.And then there s Nathaniel His birth parents gave him up to government care for financial compensation, sending the boy off to a magician official and his wife to be raised and groomed for yet another position in the government He s a clever boy and, worse yet, a determined one Even as a young boy, Nathaniel jumps ahead of his magical studies,than his caretaker realizes, to do the one thing that magicians can do well Summon a demon.Which brings us to Bartimaeus, a demon of numerous names and forms Keep in mind that chapters focused on Nathaniel or other central characters are told in the third person limited, while Bartimaeus keeps the first person voice all to himself He is the hero of the story, the one you laugh along with and cheer for he s the one you hope comes out on top I think it has something to do with the fact that he adds foot notes to his own running narrative sometimes long footnotes that lead to amusing stories about the follies of enslaved demons and their foolish masters, sometimes he s just adding a clever punchline to a situation He never fails to make me laugh.So you ve got a boy who is in over his head, but is too arrogant to see that Plus, you ve got a demon he s offended if you call him that he prefers to be called a djinn wanting freedom from a lifetime carrying out orders from self serving magicians Add in powerful magical artifacts, bureaucratic backstabbing, good and evil deeds, annoying imps, a rebellion, daring acts, insanity and several precisely drawn pentacles and you ve got a fraction of The Bartimaeus Trilogy The rest of it is pure fun definately a rainy day book i could read these for hours and not be bored a real page turner. The Amulet of Samarkand, The Golem s Eye and Ptolemy s Gate are set mainly in an alternative present day London They follow Bart s relationships with his young master, Nathaniel, and with Kitty, a fiery member of the Resistance against the magicians This is an awesome book with a sarcastic demon, who wouldn t want to read about that Without a doubt, my favorite series of all time Witty, stylistically complex, and intelligent, this series has a fantastic lead and believable side characters I cannot recommend this series.
