The Bartimaeus Trilogy

Post  Guest on March 31st 2010, 8:51 pm

Because me and Joel love it so much.
Even though I'm a fail, and never finished the third book.
I don't have my copy of the first one but I was just flicking through the second one for laughs.
Favorite Bartimaeus quote anyone?

Bartimaeus: "I wanted to wake you straightaway, but I knew I had to wait several hours to ensure you were safely recovered."
Nathaniel: "What! How long has it been?"
Bartimaeus: "Five minutes, I got bored."

OMG. And that scene with Tallow.
Where he actually goes up to him and asks "WHY ARE YOU SO YELLOW OMG?!"
Oh and when he goes "Hey, we've all got problems, chum. I'm overly talkative. You look like a field of buttercups in a suit."

Though to be honest, his lines aren't what make him a BAMF, it's all his footnotes...

I almost put this series in here a couple days ago, it's amazing. That djinn is brilliant.

He is!
Haha, I love him.
Me and Joel were talking on FB about how we think we'll strip Pansy of her BAMF status if she doesn't read the books.
She and our lovely djinn here would get along.

Haha, I love him and Farqual though, he's all OH SHIT ITS HIM RUN AWAY RUN AWAYYYY!

I want to reread them but I'm missing the first, and I only have the second. Never finished the third. -sigh-

Then you should go to the library or find some way to read and reread.

I would, but I'm rereading Deathly Hallows and The Two Towers and Othello all at once right now. No really, I am. -has three books open in front of her on the desk-

SOOO.

I'm rereading these again, and writing a fanfic about the American wars that never, ever, ever get touched on EVER in the series besides "oh hey we need stuff for the American war, ahurhur."

That sounds awesome!

I'm in two minds about the prequel being released.
I'm always wary of prequels, actually...

But the main reason I will NOT be buying a copy is because it won't match my other ones.

D: It's already out here. I'm tempted to not read it.

I found a review online, that said it was okay, but he makes a few modern references...which sucks, because it ruins the whole story. :/

Oh, maybe I won't read it at all!
Better to keep my trilogy pure, I suppose?

IDK if I'll read it either.

I'm kind of scared for the movie...

Oh, the only links I could find when I just Googled were dated 2009...

And nothing on IMDB that I could see.
