    The other English boy wizard

    Like Harry Potter, the Bartimaeus Trilogy centers around a boy wizard growing up in an England where magic is real. Also like Harry Potter, these books can also be enjoyed by adults. Nathaniel's world, believe it or not, is much darker than Harry's, however, despite the absence of a menacing Dark Lord. What I loved most about these books was Bartimaeus (obviously) with his wonderfully British wit and acute observations, but what I also loved about thses book was Mr. Stroud's ability to take a supposed children's story and work in some very mature themes, such as government control, censorship, power and independence. Shrugging off the usual school-centered issues, Stroud dives deeply into some philosophical quarderies. For example, just because you have magical powers, does that mean you can control how others act?<BR/><BR/>Nathaniel lives in a London where spirits are treated as slaves in order to work magic for the magicians and where ordinary people are kept under the oppressive thumb of the magician-run government. Kitty, an ordinary girl who's miserable life as be shaped by magicians, is part of a rebellion effort against this government. The themes at the heart of these books are very thought-provoking and go beyond the usual children's book fare. <BR/><BR/>Stroud's writing is at once beautiful, frightening and witty. Segements of the book alternate between narrators for added dementions to the story. Bartimaeus is a fantastic character and I often found myself looking ahead towards his next chapters. Kitty's story was somewhat boring at first, but she grew on me in the last book. Nathaniel, the main boy magician, is a surprisingly complex character. He grows throughout the three books, starting at age eleven or so and ending at age seventeen (like another wizard we all know...) but his character growth is amazing. He starts off the series as a blue-eyed innocent child, but through his relentless determination and somewhat unhealthy dose of ambition, we see sometimes see Nathaniel become a villain in his story. In the end, the wrongs are righted, of course, but not without sacrifice. The ending is upsetting, but entirely appropriate.<BR/><BR/>I'm sure most people never bother to glance at these books in the store, sicne they're in the children's department. After all, what child wants to read a book filled with such somber and heady themes? Let's face it, the books are pretty philosophical for a children's series! But don't get me wrong. There are plenty of things for children to like: magic, dancing skeletons, funny djinnies, but this truly is a great read for anyone looking to see a piece of fantasy literature that has a bit of meat on it. A children's book George Orwell could be proud of, I dare say.
