    Witty Wodehouses�s best-loved creation is the master-servant team of Bertie Wooster, the charming nitwit, and Jeeves, his effortlessly superior valet and protector. Newsweek says "they are at their best in The Code of the Woosters." Newsweek says "they are at their best in The Code of the Woosters."

    I don't believe I've met a Wodehouse story I didn't like. This one is hilarious and Jonathan Cecil is fabulous! His impersonation of Aunt Dahlia is a thing of beauty.

    Nathaniel is eleven-years-old and a magician's apprentice, learning the traditional art of magic. All is well until he has a life-changing encounter with Simon Lovelace, a magician of unrivaled ruthlessness and ambition. When Lovelace brutally humiliates Nathaniel in public, Nathaniel decides to speed up his education, teaching himself spells far beyond his years. With revenge on his mind, he masters one of the toughest spells of all and summons Bartimaeus, a five-thousand-year-old djinni, to assist him.

    Overall

    I'd read Jonathan Stroud's Bartimaeus Trilogy and loved it. When I saw it available at Audible, I had to have it. The entire trilogy is one of those rarities... rich, complex characters AND a terrific story line. In the Amulet of Samarkand, we meet the 5,000 year old djinni, Bartimaeus. He's quite the egotistical smarty-pants and acts as our guide to Stroud's universe. He's summoned by the magician, Nathaniel, and a prickly relationship develops between them. Stroud's universe is fascinating, with magicians controlling the British government, commoners getting trampled underfoot and... well, I don't want to reveal too much. It's a fun and engaging read.

    And now I have to say that Simon Jones' reading was wonderful! I loved his interpretation of the characters, especially Bartimaeus. He's perfect! And he has wonderful range, portraying all sorts of characters... wealthy and poor, weak and strong, good and bad and everything in between.
