Un compito tanto arduo quanto delicato spetta a Nathaniel, ora che fa parte del Ministero degli Interni. Il giovanissimo e intraprendente mago deve individuare i membri della "Resistenza", responsabili degli attentati che colpiscono Londra. Ma le sue indagini si rivelano infruttuose, come i tentativi di infilarsi nel gruppo. Sulle tracce del golem, il mostro apparentemente indistruttibile che getta la città nel panico, Nathaniel parte alla volta di Praga, ed evoca il jinn Bartimeus.

(B) 74% | More than Satisfactory Notes: It could do with a more elaborate mythology. Improving on the first book, it's still, for a fantasy, not terribly exciting.

I was really looking forward to reading this second novel in the Bartimaeus series. I was quite curious to see what it would be like, not just in the sense of the development of the story and the characters, but of the world building as well. I kept wondering how will this world ruled by magicians d Leggi tutto

This hilarious novel is the second in the Bartimaeus Trilogy. The story picks up where the first book in the trilogy ( The Amulet of Samarkand ) leaves off. Most of the story takes place in London, where the government is made up of magicians. These magicians are all power-hungry, calculating, feckles Leggi tutto
4.5 stars This series is getting better and better and I honestly have no real reason not to give it 5 stars except that I find it really hard to give 5 stars to children and middle grade books, sorry XD Just please tell me what is better than a morally grey 13 year old boy with a djinni as a servant?

My first thought right after reading the book is that it is filled with temperamental and cocky teenagers, equally self-absorbed, bickering and snotty adult magicians and one Mr. Love guru called Bartimaeus. Which actually is not a bad thing cause he cracks me up. Yup, ive been doing that quite a l
I really liked the first book in the series, but this second one just doesn't match up. I still admire the world-building (a magical system based on good old fashioned demon summoning!) and Bartimaeus himself is still a fun character to read. But Nathaniel has become almost unbearable to read. All t Leggi tutto
3.5 stars. Bartimaeus is a great character and this is a fast, fun read. That said, I didn't like this installment as much as the first book in the series, The Amulet of Samarkand , which I thought was fantastic. My reasons are: (1) I thought Nathaniel (aka John Mandrake) was pretty annoying much of Leggi tutto
