[Boku no Ai o Shire!] his limits and the limitations of the magicians Kitty is a teen aged key player in the resistance She is naive but persistent resilient and somewhat resistant to magic Herigh ethical standards as with most of the others in the resistance are in sharp opposition to everyone else Bartimaeus almost takes a liking to The Boy Who Would Not Say His Name her forer refreshing Job-Hunting for the So-Called Handicapped honesty courage and individualismNow I didn t read this book I listened to the audiobook narrated by Simon Jones I must say that Jones is a fantastic reader His British accents are wonderfulis reading of the crazy skeleton demon is out of this world and all of the characters come out clearly as individuals My recommendation is do not read this book listen to it My first thought right after reading the book is that it is filled with temperamental and cocky teenagers eually self absorbed bickering and snotty adult magicians and one Mr Love guru called Bartimaeus Which actually is not a bad thing cause The Hunger Within he cracks me up Yup ive been doing that uite a lot when Im reading Character For me they were pretty much 1 dimensional The magicians are powerungry self obsessed egoistic with really nothing to brag about except they could control the Spirits Most of the time they come off very easy to manipulate As what Bartimaeus once said they are all driven by power and greed Or you know something like thatThe commoners or the people with no magical aptitude are either stupid or mindless cowards who spend the rest of the book just being told what to do clueless or cowering in fear from the magicians But I get that we must learn to bow down to authorities but they just come off rather too compliant and dull And if there are actually people who are willing to fight for their rights they come off too stronglyWhich brings me to the Resistance what the Commoners lack the Resistance are abundant of it Even to the point of being too confident with their abilities that in the end they ended up being cocky and arrogant themselves but the second book did tackle this one out and accepted the mistakes being made It was dealt with properly and I liked the closureI could sympathize with the characters but I couldn t seem to make myself care for them The only like able character for me is Bartimaeus the others fell kind of flat or annoying It took me a while to warm up to Kitty and by the end of the book I came to like Between Two Skies her too But not that much Just enough so I could stop rolling my eyes duringer POVs teeheeAside from all of that I still enjoyed r 35 stars Bartimaeus is a great character and this is a fast fun read That said I didn t like this installment as much as the first book in the series The Amulet of Samarkand which I thought was fantastic My reasons are 1 I thought Nathaniel aka John Mandrake was pretty annoying much of the time and sometimes downright unlikeable 2 I didn t think the author expanded enough on the mythology underlying the story ie the magic system the istories and powers of the various classes of demons which I think is very interesting and 3 I didn t think the scope of the plot was as big or engaging as in the first novel Criticism aside the story is well written and Bartimaeus when e is on page is a ton of fun I will certainly read the last book in the trilogy and Nude Girls Photography Presents Ass Pussy From Behind - Compilation Vol. 5 hope that it resembles book 1 than book 2 Winner Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for YA Novel Nominee Locus Award for YA Fantasy Novel.
