review 1: So good! If you're in anyway a baby when it comes to scary books, and I am, read only during daylight hours as this middle grade book really has some scares. Also, I realized when reading it, how refreshing it is to not have a book be about romance. The characters are fully re...

review 1: I really love this author, and this second book in the Lockwood & Co. series is a fun and haunting tale. I enjoy all three of the main characters, the premise is intriguing and their ghost hunts will keep you on the edge of your seat. If your kids liked Goosebump books and are lo...

review 1: The Ring of Solomon, by Jonathan Stroud is a fictional novel that I just couldn't put down. It encompasses the themes of power, betrayal, freedom and slavery. At the beginning of the novel, the reader is introduced to Bartimaeus, a spirit in Stroud's fictitious world. Later on...

review 1: Die Trilogie um Bartimäus, Nathanael und Kitty von Jonathan Stroud gehört zu meinen Fantasyfavoriten der letzten Jahre. Jetzt hat Lee Sullivan den ersten Band, Das Amulett von Samarkand, als Comic, genauer und besser als graphic novel, umgesetzt. Ich war zunächst skeptisch, ob si...

review 1: Fantastically original, fast paced and a hugely entertaining read. I pre-read this title before sharing it with my 8 year old son and am glad I did. Most of the reader recommendations put this book in the target range of grades 4-7, and though Stroud manages to nicely skirt mos...

review 1: (4.5 Stairs)Quite a scary read. The plot of the story was very good, with plenty of mystery. The characters were also very enjoyable. They were the sort that I always wanted to know what they would do or think next. The book was really broken up into two separate stories: an intr...

review 1: Set slightly in the future, ghosts, or Visitors as they are over-kindly called, have overtaken London for the last fifty years. It is only children who can sense them enough to deal with them. Kind of a Ghost-Busters twist. Great for kids because who doesn't want to believe th...

review 1: Gods, I can't even begin to express how much I loved this book.So I read the Bartimaeus trilogy around 7-8 years ago. I remember loving it, and I remember that the writing was incredible. The last book in what came to be known as the Bartimaeus sequence, I read just this last mon...

review 1: Great glimpse into Bartimaeus's old life. His narration was wonderful as usual and seeing this darker, Ptolemy-less Bartimaeus was an interesting contrast, as all the previous iterations had already been highly influenced by the boy magician. Although Bartimaeus does seem to alre...

review 1: Honestly I could read whole libraries just of books about Bartimaeus being himself. Every time I pick up one of these books I fall head-over-heels again for his sarcasm, wit, and love-hate relationships with humans. Give me a million, a billion pages of Bartimaeus insisting he ha...

review 1: I was torn about how to rate this book. On the one hand I went into it with very specific expectations and none of those were met. You see, I had read all of Mr. Stroud's fantastic Bartimaeus books and came into this book with the expectation that something similar would be in ...

review 1: 3.5 bintang.Sebetulnya seru dan ini merupakan novel fantasi tipe klasik yang lengkap, tapi keseruan itu baru saya rasakan menjelang akhir. Sejujurnya saya agak bosan membaca awal sampai pertengahannya, bahkan saya sampai melakukan dosa seorang pembaca buku: membuka-buka duluan le...
