THE AMULET OF SAMARKAND

THE AMULET OF SAMARKAND
Bartimaeus #1

ya Fantasy
3 Stars
462 pages


a young magician in training calls up the djinni Bartimaeus to revenge himself on another magician and in the process saves England from a revolt of other magicians.

This was very occultic, with all the pentagrams and incense and whatnot. And all the footnotes by Bartimaeus threw the whole rhythm off. Couldn’t read half a page before you had to stop the main story and read a stupid footnote. Like that through the whole book. Very poorly executed.

I’ll probably try the next one, but it is definitely taking a backseat in the bookline.
