4.0 out of 5 stars Bartimaeus Trilogy - Part Two
After thoroughly enjoying 'The Amulet of Samarkand' I was eager to read the next instalment of Nathaniel's adventures - so much so, I managed to get hold of an advance proof copy. Unfortunately, I have to admit that, to begin with, I was a little disappointed - and for the first 100-150 pages I came close to putting it aside. However, I stuck with it and finally started...

3.0 out of 5 stars The Amulet of Samarkand was way better...
Nathaniel is an utterly repulsive, unlikeable character with few reedeming qualities at all. He's changed a lot since the first book, and not for the better. This would have worked (and indeed did in the Amulet of Samarkand thanks to Bartimaeus) but not so this time. Bartimaeus doesn't even make an appearance until around about page 70, and then he feels to have a far...

5.0 out of 5 stars Good old bartimaeus, 24 Mar. 2010
This review is from: The Golem's Eye (The Bartimaeus Trilogy) (Paperback)
Good series of books with more from Nathaniel and bartimaeus. Young magician slightly less obnoxious. Very readable series of books would highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good!, 17 Aug. 2006

This review is from: The Golem's Eye (The Bartimaeus Trilogy) (Paperback)
This book is brilliant, but I don't think it is quite as good as the first, The Amulet of Samarkand, I couldn't give the TAoS a big enough rating, it deserved more than the five stars. This isn't quite as good or as gripping, but it is VERY GOOD! READ THEM!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fills in between volume 1 & 2, 31 May 2008

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Golem's Eye (The Bartimaeus Trilogy) (Paperback)
The Golem's Eye fills in the necessary detail between book one (Amulet of Samurkand) and book three (Ptolemy's gate). It shows us Nathaniel's transformation into the darker John Mandrake. A good read, but the gem of the trilogy is Ptolemy's Gate. Stroud is definitely amongst the top ten writer's of this genre. Make sure you have at least read The Amulet of Samurkand first though!

5.0 out of 5 stars Do you a favor....read this book, 20 Oct. 2009
This review is from: The Golem's Eye (The Bartimaeus Trilogy) (Paperback)
After read the first one I ended this one in a week......amazing.
The plot is about Nathaniel and barti...of course, but the real prime here is Kitty, the little girl who Nathaniel fought in the park (book one)
Magicians, Imps,Sucubus, Demons....everything that you can imagine(or not) is in this book....
