Reviews

  • Drama, humour and hypnotically engaging storytelling

    Independent
  • The truly original touch is the way Stroud alternates Nathaniel's story with the djinni's own knowing and irascible first-person narrative

    Guardian
  • The narrative slips skilfully from first person to third and back and Bartimaeus's voice is laugh-out-loud sassy, while Nathaniel's story has an engaging poignancy as he tries to prove himself in a world in which he has always been despised

    The Sunday Times
  • Not since Gulliver's Travels has a children's writer managed to combine a thrilling tale of magic and adventure with such deliciously pointed comedy

    The Times
  • Terrific stuff

    Mail on Sunday
