The Amulet of SamarKand

.... is a seriously entertaining novel. I've been reading it for the past two weeks. Yes, it is as good as the Harry Potter series, and yes, the writer (Jonathan) has a really vivid imagination.

Have you been to one of those movies or read those books that you dont want to ever end?
Its a weird small joy, since you want the story to move ahead, of course, but yet want to enjoy the book so much that it never stops entertaining you.

This is one of those books to savor. Learn all about Djinns and Magic, about Amulets and Talismans(do you know the difference? Read to find out... )What I also love is those footnotes(yes, footnotes to a novel, great idea, doesnt distract from the story, but adds to the flavor)

And no, you can't borrow my copy- I haven't finished reading it yet :)
