LOVED IT

It is an amazing book. It is very original and is one of the best books I've read in forever. It isn't one of those stupid superficial books. It has depth and wonderful characters. My favorite character is Bartimaeus. I love his side commentary. He always gets me laughi...
It is an amazing book. It is very original and is one of the best books I've read in forever. It isn't one of those stupid superficial books. It has depth and wonderful characters. My favorite character is Bartimaeus. I love his side commentary. He always gets me laughing. My favorite quote is, "One magician demanded I show him an image of the love of his life. I rustled up a mirror"

    I am still not done this book yet because to me, it just seems boring. I have given up on this book since its a little slow.

    Not the best book in the world

    This book kind of made my mind whoozy, it just kept rambling on about nonsense. But in the end it was a good book, it wasnt suspenceul or anything exciting, it was just kind of cool at the end what they did. But even though i finished this book, i had to stop reading the second one in the middle because it stunk.
