The Golem's Eye
By Jonathan Stroud
Random House/Listening Library, 2004. 14 CDs (72 mins. each). Young Adult
In the second book in the Bartimaeus trilogy, Nathaniel, now fourteen, is acquiring more authority and responsibility in the government--as well as more enemies. As a powerful force in unleashed on London, Nathaniel, with the help of the unwilling Bartimaeus, sets out to figure what--and who--is behind the attacks.
I didn't like this book quite as much as the other two in the Bartimaeus trilogy, but it's still a fun adventure. This is a great series to listen; Simon Jones is a fantastic narrator.
