What can I say? I absolutely love the snarky djinni Bartimaeus. And Simon Jones does a wonderful job of bringing him to life. After having listened to The Amulet of Samarkand, also read by Simon Jones, when I saw this title on the list of Top 10 Audiobooks, I knew I had to listen to it. This time, the wisecracking demon is loose in the court of King Solomon. Under the supervision of Khaba, one of Solomon’s court magicians, Bartimaeus is part of the team building the new temple. When his bad behavior draws Solomon’s attention, Khaba and his demons are sent to the desert to hunt bandits. There they cross paths with Asmira, loyal guard of the Queen of Sheba on a secret mission to assassinate King Solomon. The Ring of Solomon is funny, action packed, and full of great characters with an underlying serious theme of slavery and freedom. I’m sure this is a wonderful book to read. But Simon Jones’ narration puts it over the top. I’m sure that if I were to read any of the Bartimaeus books now, I would hear Jones’ version of his voice in my head. And that would be an excellent thing.

I am SO happy that Jonathan Stroud decided to write more stories of Bartimaeus. He is the most delightful character I have encountered in a long time. Simon Jones' reading of the story is wonderful.
