The Amulet of Samarkand: The Bartimaeus Trilogy #01

I really love this book and wish that I had my own copy of it.
Although you can easily spot the influences in the book (boy wizard in modern day London) I still feel that it one of the most original fantasy books that I have read.

Bartamaeus made it for me, he is so witty. I loved the footnotes so much that I found myself flicking my eyes down every time i turned the page to see if there was another one coming.

Very enjoyable book.
