Shelves: fantasy , young-adult If the quality of a book rested solely on its plot, this would be an excellent novel. The general plot is, of course, standard fantasy fare save the world!

Also, there appears to be a second plot running under the main one which will obviously be continued in the later books, and this plot seems much more promising. Story-wise, this first installment in The Bartimaeus Trilogy is respectably good.

However, the writing failed to appeal to If the quality of a book rested solely on its plot, this would be an excellent novel. However, the writing failed to appeal to me in many ways that, were they not already in my possession, I might not even bother with the next two books. The gratuitous footnotes did not help. This book has too much of them, however, and most of them were either useless or flat-out unamusing.

It makes me wonder if Mr. Stroud let an editor touch his book he is, after all, an editor himself. A number of the useful footnotes could also have been incorporated into the normal narrative with a bit of rearrangement. It would have been easier to absorb, would have saved me from moving my eyes, and would have kept the book flowing smoothly. This made them so isolated, it was nearly impossible to relate to them. The story is all right nothing revolutionary, though interesting but the humor falls flat, the prose is cold, and the characters are not very loveable.
