The Amulet of Samarkand
(Book 1, The Bartimaeus Trilogy)
by Jonathan Stroud

Date Completed: January 8th, 2006

I think that I had heard of this series previously, but I didn't know anything about it. I saw it in Barnes and Noble in Atlanta while on Christmas break at my grandparents house. The shiny covers caught my attention initially. The books can be found in the children's section of the bookstore, so they are a quick read. I like the mythology in the books as well as the method of storytelling with more than one point of view. I recommend this series, and I plan to read the other two books.
