If the other two books were good, then the third installment of the Bartimaeus trilogy is simply superb. In this marvelous conclusion, almost every character returns to play out an impeccable ending that leaves you gasping for more.

Really late to the thread here, but just couldn't help but add that Jonathan Stroud's Bartimaeus Trilogy is a highly-recommended successor to the Harry Potter series crown. The first, The Amulet of Samarkind, is an enjoyable read and allows Stroud to develop his world of magicians-as-conjurers, but the trilogy takes a risky and satisfying turn in The Golem's Eye, and culminates in a genuinely cataclysmic and emotional showdown in London's Hyde Park by this third installment, Ptolemy's Gate. I have to admit that I, too, found myself crying at the end of this terrific trilogy--I hope other HP fans find this trilogy as satisfying as I have!

I enjoyed this book very much. The characters are all very well developed. The ending made me cry for 5 days and the book made me lose my social life because i was SUPER obsessed with it. ;)

Wonderfully moving. Bartimeaus is as funny and witty as ever. Jonathan Stroud ends the trilogy beautifully, shocking, and in the most heart wrenching way. The end deduced me to tears and was wonderfully satisfying.

This is one of the few series where I preferred the last book to the first. The ending was perfect.
The trilogy has a wonderful mix of humour and sadness.

really great book series, i am a big HP fan, and this series was really good, helped to fill time and take me to another world. :D

The third in a fantastic trilogy, Stroud does an amazing job immersing the reader into the world of the characters, making you feel their emotions. The narration style is very unique and captivating, and I highly recommend this book to Harry Potter Fans looking to fill the void!!

extremely funny, full of intriguing ideas and characters. Bartimaeus the slave is saucy and witty and has no respect for those who enslave him.
