The Golem's Eye (Bartimaeus Series #2)

The Golem's Eye (Bartimaeus Series #2) - Jonathan Stroud This book turned out far better than the first 100 pages promised. What is a little disappointing in this book is that we don’t get to see as much from Bartimaeus as we did in the first book. Nathaniel wasn’t that likable of a character to begin with, and if anything, he’s gotten worse. This is perhaps why the beginning of the book wasn’t quite as enjoyable. This book also introduces us to Kitty, a member of the Resistance. While clearly not quite as fun as Bartimaeus as a narrator, Kitty’s story adds depth and interest that helped to redeem my initial indifference.See my review in its entirety here.
