The Amulet Of Samarkand

Recommended Posts

When the 5,000-year-old djinni Bartimaeus is summoned by Nathaniel, a young magician's apprentice, he expects to have to do nothing more taxing than a little levitation or a few simple illusions. But Nathaniel is a precocious talent and has something rather more dangerous in mind: revenge. Against his will, Bartimaeus is packed off to steal the powerful Amulet of Samarkand from Simon Lovelace, a master magician of unrivalled ruthlessness and ambition. Before long, both djinni and apprentice are caught up in a terrifying flood of magical intrigue, murder and rebellion. Set in a modern-day London controlled by magicians, this hilarious, electrifying thriller will enthral readers of all ages.

Will we be discussing this book anytime soon?
Hi, Teen Prodigy, welcome to BGO.

The discussion will happen as soon as someone enjoys /hates the book enough to start us off. Maybe no-one here has read it yet (so many books to choose from!!) Do you recommend it?

Although an adult, I still read childrens books from time to time, I found this VERY disappointing.

Trudi Cannavan's Magicians Guild I thoroughly enjoyed.

Amulet of Samarkand I bought hoping my boys would read it but I really found it heavy going.

      This is the second one of the Bartimaeus trilogy, after The Amulet Of Samarkand.
