  • "Hooray - Bartimaeus is back!"

    Overall

    So great to find another Bartimaeus book - the character is just so likeable! This story is set many years before the events of the original trilogy, looking back on some of Bartimaeus's adventures with King Solomon, which he so often referred to in the other books. Very enjoyable. The reading performance is good too, though I listened to this very shortly after the other trilogy (which was read by a different narrator) so I found it a bit difficult to adjust to the new interpretation.

    Fans of Jonathan Stroud's Bartimaeus books will devour this book - a cracking adventure brimming with magic, intrigue and a treasure trove of characters that the reader can't help but fall for. We find everyone's favourite irascibly insolent djinni serving at the court of King Solomon in 950 BC Jerusalem, where he is causing his customary chaos and must help a girl assassin sent by the Queen of Sheba to steal the all-powerful Ring of Solomon.

  • "Well performed and a great read"

    Overall

    This is a great reading of this book (which I have read a number of times before). Steven Pacey hits just the right note in his delivery of the characters, especially Bartimaeus, and slips between the various narrative styles seamlessly. I downloaded the other two in the series as well based on this and was not disappointed there either. I would certainly recommend this title.

    When the 5,000-year-old djinni Bartimaeus is summoned by Nathaniel, a young magician's apprentice, he expects to have to do nothing more taxing than a little levitation or a few simple illusions. But Nathaniel is a precocious talent and has something rather more dangerous in mind...

    Steve says: "Bartemais - I like him"
  • "A great end to a lovely series"

    Overall

    All the Artemis Fowl books are enjoyable stories and this one is certainly no exception in that sense. It's a bittersweet read though, since it is the final installment in the series. Nathaniel Parker deilvers another great performance - his reading style is flowing and easy to listen to and his interpretations of the characters are sensible, organic and very well done.

    Is this Armageddon for the Artemis Fowl? Opal Koboi, power-crazed pixie, is plotting to exterminate mankind and become fairy queen. If she succeeds, the spirits of long-dead fairy warriors will rise from the earth, inhabit the nearest available bodies and wreak mass destruction. But what happens if those nearest bodies include crows, or deer, or badgers - or two curious little boys by the names of Myles and Beckett Fowl? Yes, it's true. Criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl's four-year-old brothers could be involved in destroying the human race.
