Review: The Amulet of Samarkand
The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I enjoyed this first book of the trilogy. I like how Jonathan Stround alternated viewpoints from Nathaniel to Bartimaeus in the chapters it adds a unique perspective to the book. I like how he introduces the magical realm to the real world and how magical users control the world behind the scenes. When Nathaniel conjurs the Djinn Bartimaeus to get revenge, his world spins out of control. A must read.
