Excellent second part of the series, it maintains what I loved about the first part (the funny perspective of the djinn Bartimaeus and the contrast with the talented but naive and overly serious Nathaniel), while at the same time developing the setting a lot, and giving us a different outside perspective of the magician's world.

El ojo del golem
Jonathan Stroud
Publicado: 2004 | 496 páginas
Novela Fantástico
Serie: Bartimeo #2

En cuanto vi que Nathaniel volvía a invocarme, supe que algo no iba bien. La primera vez que osó molestarme tuve que ayudarle a robar el amuleto de Samarkanda. ¿Qué querrá esta vez? Parece ser que el niño tiene algún que otro problema: en Londres medio barrio de Picadilly ha sido destruido y le han dado seis semanas para descubrir al culpable. ¡Qué pereza! Con lo bien que estaba yo tomando el sol. ¿Por qué me hará trabajar? ¿Por qué no invocará a un espíritu inferior? En fin, no puedo negarme, pero eso sí, hemos llegado a un pacto: seis semanas, solo estaré seis semanas a su servicio, yo después me piro…

I wish id read these books as a kid they were exactly the sort of thing i would have really liked. i still enjoyed them now but its different when youre a kid, books have a different impact on you, especially as thats the agegroup these books are aimed at. but anyway they were good, well written and interesting and engaging. and its nice to read books like this again, i prefer this sort of style of writing over the more 'modern (american usually) ya' sort which seems to be popular these days. not that thats bad, i just like this better ( )
