Two years have passed since young apprentice magician Nathaniel became famous by foiling the ruthless Simon Lovelace. Now 14, Nathaniel is ambitiously climbing the ranks of the magicians' government. The Prime Minister himself has placed Nathaniel in charge of capturing the Resistance, a group of unruly commoners working to undermine the magicians' empire. But after several failed attempts, Nathaniel is forced to admit he can't do it alone. With his career on the line, he reluctantly summons his only hope for success, the 5,000-year-old wise-cracking djinni Bartimaeus.

The duo is reunited just in time: the Resistance is growing more audacious than ever. And to make matters worse, a seemingly invulnerable clay golem is wreaking destruction throughout London, sending the entire city into pandemonium. With time running out, the young magician and his uncontrollable djinni must find the source of the golem's power, a task they quickly learn will involve much more than they ever anticipated.

In the ensuing chaos, Nathaniel and Bartimaeus will be chased through the streets of Prague, hunt a dancing skeleton across London's skyline, encounter the horror of the dreaded Night Police, and meet a surprising new ally. Together, these three will have to go head-to-head with the fearsome golem before the mysterious identity of its master is finally revealed.

    " This second book is every bit as good as the first, maybe even better. We still have the sarcastic and uneasy relationship between the magician Nathaniel/John and djinni Bartimaeus, but we also meet Kitty Jones, a feisty commoner fighting about the magicians' monopoly of power. Where John is manipulative, controlling, self-preserving, distrustful, and power-hungry, Kitty is idealistic, rebellious, impulsive, brave, and honorable. Through a conversation with the djinni, Kitty disables the golem that's terrorizing London and saves John's life. "

    " Buku ini adalah sekuel dari The Amulet of Samarkand, di sini bertambah lagi POV dari sudut pandang commoner yaitu Kitty, peranan Kitty cukup dominan di buku kedua TBT. Buku ini cenderung lebih rumit dalam hal plot, tapi yang saya suka dalam trilogi ini adalah Jonathan Stroud berani tampil beda dengan menampilkan tokoh heroes yang anti hero (negatif), dalam artian karakter utama yang sifatnya jelek, Barty & Nath bukanlah tipe pahlawan yang umum macam jujur, baik hati, keren dan pemberani. Nath cenderung kasar dan kejam, penampilannya juga berantakan jauh dari kesan keren sedangkan Barti, aha saya no comment tentang jin ini, selain daripada jin gokil yang kadang suka bikin kesal manusia maupun jin lain lain gara-gara lidahnya itu. "

    " This was an interesting book, can't wait to read the last one... wonder what will happen next between Nathaniel and Bartimaeus. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ian Korpel | 2/6/2014

    " Another great story in the series. mabey not quite aas good as the first one. "

    " Halarious and intreging "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 1/27/2014

    " These books are so much fun and appeal to that twisted sense of humor we all supress and drags the child in us all out through invocation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rudy Buhendra | 1/23/2014

    " As interesting as the book 1! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Sherman | 1/7/2014

    " better than book 1 and good back history on Bartimaeus "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carla | 12/12/2013

    " the characters develop more and the plot thickens. Still lots of questions remain for Book #3. Interesting how flawed all of the main characters are, but the author helps you understand them in a way that makes you care about them. "

    " Hiks' apa yang terjadi dengan Nathaniel??? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Misty Moncrief | 10/21/2013

    " I did not like this book as much as I did the last one. I felt that it was very slow moving at times and not as funny as the previous. It was still enjoyable though and I look forward to the next one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chloe | 5/16/2013

    " As good as the first, but even better in my oppion! The best of the three! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chanté | 1/20/2013

    " Excellent. I didn't want to put the book down. The author throws in some highly entertaining comments as footnotes from the perspective of Bartimaeus. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brooke | 9/6/2012

    " LOVED this book. LISTEN to the version on your ipod, it was the bEST! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben Pashkoff | 6/9/2012

    " The second carries on and evolves the first. Simply put (for those who read and enjoy reading light fantasy) this is a fun read. It is a page turner and I am looking forward to the summation in the third book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joyce Castanon | 3/10/2012

    " Good follow up to the first and introduces a little more intrigue with new interesting characters and a mysterious plot. You also learn more about Bartimaeus's past, which is easily the best character in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michaelynn | 1/29/2012

    " Absolutely love this series. Bartimaeus is wonderful! "

    " the first book is better than this one "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anndee | 5/8/2011

    " I read these before and now I'm listening to them. I just love the dry British humor and of course anything that has to do with magic. My kids find these boring and now I see they're recommended for 12-17. Those Brits just have a fabulous vocab.
    "

    " Great book,
    has some swearing though.......
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cody | 4/29/2011

    " Jonathan Stroud is an amazing author and this is my favorite series of books. I found myself laughing all the way through The Bartamaeus Trilogy. Any fan of fantasy that havn't read Bartamaeus should try it out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel | 4/27/2011

    " A very good sequel to Amulet of Samarkand, a bit slower in parts, but if so, it's all a set up for the intense wrap-up of Ptolemy's Gate. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kerry | 4/25/2011

    " My kids tell me I am a tough rater--I do like this series and would recommend it to adults--and most kids. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Avarea | 4/17/2011

    " I got bored at the middle part. The author became quite too detailed with his descriptions; and some footnotes weren't really necessary. Nevertheless, the ending was good :). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maxine | 4/17/2011

    " A bit draggy in places but, still, a fun read. "

    " Grand! I love this author, I love his characters and I can not wait to get the third book! "
