another great book by Jonathan. Simon is a great narrator. if you read the first book you will not be disappointed with the 2nd.
I've no idea where it ranks in the hundreds I have listened to! It's a great book, the worst in the trilogy I think (often the case for middle books of 3) but it's very enjoyable still.
The narrator is great and the antagonistic relationships between the characters are subtle and wonderful.
The Golem's Eye ranks among the highest of the books I've listened to. The author's writing is amusing and witty. The plot is lighthearted and the narrator's ability to bring Bartimaeus to life made for a fun and enjoyable time.
The personality of Bartimaeus.
He did an amazing job narrating this series. He truly brought Bartimaeus to life and was spot on for the tone and sarcasm the author was going for. I've listened to over 200 audiobooks (yes, 200...but it's been over the past few years), and Simon Jones' narration of this series has been one of my favorite so far.
I actually chuckled out loud a few times, something I very rarely do.
Both the J. Stroud and S. Jones did a great job bringing Bartimaeus's world to life.
32 yrs old and love to read! Even with a hectic schedule Audible still gives you the chance to enjoy great books on the go! Can't beat that!
loved it!!! when Enorious came Simon J is the best of all time!!!!!
Lots of books lots of time. I love all things Star Wars and fantasy. The Bartimaeus trilogy (or quad) maybe the perfect series. Jonathan Stroud and Douglas Adams are my heroes.
Closer to perfection than most other books, ever. Simon Jones is the voice of my dreams. Jonathan Stroud is an unmitigated genius.
Barti, one of my favorites of all time, if not ever.
Everything. I would listen to Simon read the phone book.
I did, have, and will again.
Witty and clever, book two in the trilogy expands the greater world and the players from the first book. Bartimaeus is a particularly entertaining as the perspective shifts from him as a character to his own self-serving and hilarious narrations. A great story to share with my kid and an easy to love work of fantasy fiction in its own right.
I am a visually impaired Game of visually impaired photographer and possibly visually impaired entrepreneur I also love technology
I liked the story, but the best part was the performance. I think this book goes at the top. Right between Harry Potter and Inheritance.
Bartimeous was my favorite character. His personality is pretty interesting
As I've said before. Simons performance was awesome. Everything from his port rail of bartimeous to the way. He tells the story is simply great
If I were to make a film, and this would make an awesome film, the tag line would Ben"an enthralling journey."
This book is good for teens, and adults. I wouldn't recommend it to children
