Some of Barty’s snark is conveyed in his dialogue in this graphic novel, but not to the full level of hilarity as the original. Before long, Bartimaeus and Nathaniel are caught up in a terrifying flood of intrigue, rebellion and murder. Looking for beautiful books? I can’t give this graphic novel five stars because I think I will give five stars to the actual book of The amulet of Samarkand.

Trivia About The Amulet of Sam Stroud lives in St Albans, Hertfordshire, with his two children, Isabelle and Arthur, and his wife Gina, an illustrator of children’s books. A young boy was sold at around age 6 so that he may be apprenticed to a magician. The colours are delicious – rich yet real, bright yet not busy, with realistic shading and other changes of tone. Unlike other graphic novels, the author and artist took the time to tell a multi-layered story. It’s a lengthy book, for it doesn’t appear wordy yet contains a satisfying amount of bulk.

Other than those few parts however I loved this book. That and a whole lot more suggest this book is a faithful adaptation, cherishing the original and only making it more vivid.

Clearly they were trying to maintain the chapter breaks from the novel, but when they’re therefore on every page it is obvious that it would have been better to break up the graphic novel into larger “chapters” and do away with the original chapter breaks. Drawback was that Nathaniel looked odd in quite a few scenes, and gargoyle-Bartimaeus looked rather like Gollum. If I remember correctly, there was plenty of this a It’s been many many years since I read the original novel version of the story of Nathaniel and Bartimaeus, so I can’t quite remember enough of the details to do a true comparison with this graphic novel edition.

The whole apprentice idea has been done over and over and oooover, of course, and this was a little cli This was intensely hilarious and intriguing and fabulous!


The precious, yet principled asmarkand Nathaniel and his reluctant accomplice, the ancient djinni Bartimeaus are well adapted.


I am looking forward to seeing samarkanf rest of the books in the series in graphic novel form. Lavishly drawn with just the right amount of humor, bravery and wit; Stroud keeps his character similar to the books with his impatience, distaste and at times indifference to wizards.

But he traps a major demon, Bartimaeus and uses him to get back at another mean magician. And what had started off as a simple plan to humiliate a rival immediately twists into something a twelve year old boy cannot handle.
