I just finished the third book, having listened to all of them on audio CD. Jonathan Stroud is a clever author, and the voice of Bartimaeus is mischievous and witty (and at times laugh-out-loud funny). This series should be considered as a whole, because there is no let down between stories, and the writing style does not change at all. For a children's/YA series, Stroud does an excellent job keeping the language smart and pithy, and the footnotes are hilarious tangents to the storyline. I highly recommend the audiobook versions, with Simon Jones. His rich English accent gives this series even more depth.
