The Amulet Of Samarkand

So what is the secret behind the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the mystery of Atlantis, the magic in the ancient flying magic carpets, or the reason why people think that horseshoe has some sort of a magical charm? And what if one book answers all these questions for you? If you are interested to know, go and grab your copy of The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud.

This book has an amazing story-line, beautiful descriptions, and impressive characterization. I came across this book very late, but like they say 'Der aaye par durust aaye'.

And oh well, there is the cynically sarcastic yet adorable, Bartimaeus. What a fabulous character. One of my all time favourite!

Definitely recommended.
