The Amulet of Samarkand (The Graphic Novel) by Jonathan Stroud

This was intensely hilarious and intriguing and fabulous! I didnt feel like facing the 500+ pages of actual book, so I picked up the comic I want to read the actual book. IT WAS HILARIOUS. It was a like an old English futuristic but proper magician story, where they enslaved demon/djinns and took apprentices. And there is an incredibly hilarious demon. DID I MENTION HOW FUNNY HE IS?

The whole apprentice idea has been done over and over and oooover, of course, and this was a little cliche. Nathaniel has a horrifically mean master, although the magicians wife is really nice (and the magician treats his wife like dirt which is really sucky) and Nathaniels a very clever little magician but everyone just flicks him off for no reason. But he traps a major demon, Bartimaeus and uses him to get back at another mean magician. Aaaaand, it all goes downhill fast.

Bartimaeus is a sassy little thing. He can changes shapes and is constantly bopping back and forth from a fly to a lizard to an Egyptian boy to an old lady...or basically whatever fits the circumstance. He gets bound to Nathaniel and he knows Nathaniels name which is a big NO NO for magicians.

I really loved the art! It told an awesome story and it was lively and the expressions were perfect.

I giggled quite a few times, its just really hilarious. Who doesnt like a sassy demon?? I mean, yeah the plot was cliche and I wasnt at all astounded, but I thought itd be a solid MG read. SO. Im going to read the book. Eventually. Like. When I steal Time and have 294082 more hours in my day.

Author: Jonathan Stroud. Publisher: Random House Children's Books. When the 5,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: revenge.

Hyperion, Trade ed. Bartimaeus has had some 5, years to develop a collection of tricks to foil humans, plenty of splendidly entertaining irreverence, a major list of enemies, and a plan for vengeance on the man who shamed him. When Bartimaeus steals the Amulet of Samarkand, both djinni and the would-be boy wonder are suddenly thrown into a whirlwind of murder, intrigue, and power struggles. The text of this high-speed adventure stays in orderly speech bubbles and narration boxes, while the illustrations throw themselves into the high-spirited, fast-paced, fantastical world. The visual cues and shorter length help to introduce these characters to a younger audience without losing the core of the story or the spirit of Nathaniel and Bartimaeus, both of whom are deeply memorable and intricately developed in the original series. While this adaptation was not, perhaps, entirely necessary, fans of the series will be unlikely to complain, graphic-novel fans may be intrigued enough to try the novels, and both groups will thoroughly enjoy seeing Bartimaeus in all his shape-shifting, lushly illustrated, full-on, sarcastic know-it-all glory.
