This is the second in the series and I must say that I loved it even more than the original. I like how you got to know more about Kitty and Nathaniel. No wonder Jonathan Stroud said I think in an interview or something that he had fun writing it. It was fun to read and I couldn't help but read the next chapter not realizing what the time was afterwards. That's how good it is. It has action, adventure, suspense, and little romance. Nat sort of still gets on my nerves at times but still love Bartimaeus. Read it after you've read the first of course. There are three stories concerning Kitty (I liked hers better than Nat's to be honest), Nat and Bartimaeus (anything with him in it is awesome either way). Check this series out when you get a chance. Jonathan Stroud is now one of my fave writers.

This is yet another brilliant story written by Jonathan Stroud. Once again, he uses just the right amount of wittiness, adventure, and suspense inorder to create an amazing, complex tale. The author weaves a truly wonderful story by providing background information on the golems, and then building off of that provided background so that everything is tied up with each other, leaving no loose ends and creating a truly statisfying book.

The Golems's Eye by Jonathan Stroud- Book Two of the Bartimaeus Trilogy The second book starts where the first one ended. Nathaniel-now officially John Mandrake-after the demise of his incompetent master is now assigned to be the apprentice of the powerful Security Minister, Ms. Jessica Whitwell, and is promoted to be the youngest Assistant to the Head of Internals affairs, Mr., Julius Tallow, who inherited his old master's job. At only 14, Nathaniel is a rising star: a young magician who is rapidly climbing the ranks of the government. He's a bright future until he is asked to deal with the growing Resistant movement, which is disrupting magicians' lives with thefts and raids. No easy task, The ringleaders: Katherine Jones (Kitty), Frederick Weaver (Fred), and Stanly Hake (Stan), have a special talent: they are resilient to magic and under the guidance of Mr. T. E Pennyfeather, they are about to commit their greatest theft of all: rob the tomb pf the greatest magician who ever lived: Mr. Gladstone. As the pressure mounts, a new series of terrifying attacks are occurring in London. First attributed to the resistant, Nathaniel has no choice but to break his promise to Bartimaeus, the djinni who helped save the government in the first book. Bartimaeus discovers that the new destruction is being caused by a Golem-not seen since 1868 in the war with Prague. Nathaniel must make a desperate journey to the enemy city of Prague and uncover who's the traitor behind the summation of the Golem and at the same time deal with the Resistance. A thrilling sequel to the Amulet of Samarkan, The Golem's eye is a roller coaster ride of magic, adventure, and political skullduggery in which lessons and change of attitudes occur as the fates of Kitty, Bartimaeus, and Nathaniel explosively collide. This is a wonderful read, definitively highly recommended!!!

I really enjoyed The Golem's Eye (the second book in the Bartimaeus trilogy). It was exciting and fun, with the usual great wit of Bartimaeus. I would say that a really good reader at the age of 9 or 10 would enjoy it. But it would mostly be for readers who are a bit older and into their teens. (It is probably at the level of the late Percy Jacksons or mid-Harry Potters.) I am an adult, and I happily read the whole thing, and can't wait to start the third book.

Very good sequel. You can tell the author had fun writing it. The pace, characters were even better. Found myself liking this more than the first. Even Nat.

I can't help but see that, while still a great story, the first in the series was probably superior in most ways. People should jusy take it fot what it is... the build up to the finale of the series.
