Bartimaeus Trilogy completed~

So uh. I finished reading the Bartimaeus Trilogy by Stroud Jonathan. 4 hours for the first book, on my flight from SFO to IAD. Then the second and third books today.

Somehow, the quality and flow of the story reminded me of Artemis Fowl. I'm not sure if it's because I consumed all three books at the same breakneck speed I used for reading the Artemis Fowl books, or because of something else.

All in all, not too bad. The end was... an abrupt surprise though. I rather wish the author had allowed Nathaniel to live and truly change and redeem himself.

Unless my eBook copy isn't complete.

"Mind you, since in that split second we were, to all intents and purposes, one and the same, I rather think he knew anyway."
Could someone confirm that as the last sentence in the book? I've checked Amazon's browse-inside-the-book option, and it does appear to be the end, which is... well, urk.
