An awesome book. A tear jerker right from the beginning with relatable and lovable characters. The reader was terrible, but because Rick did such a good job I could stomach it fairly easily.
This novel by Rick Riordan is an amazing book written by a great mind.I always loved the stories of Greek adventures and awesome quests he has produced. I see no problems with this book and would refer it to my friends that are in for a great read.
Although intended for a younger audience this book was still a good read for an adult. I have loved greek mythology ever since i was a kid and this book does a great job of turning those stories into a more friendly version that anyone can enjoy. It softens the edges of rather intense stories and makes them fun and insightful while still keeping true to the basic aspect of what they were. All together it was a nice easy listen that was perfect to use for background noise or something for your kids to listen too that you can enjoy with them.
I think the narrator did pretty well. I didn't like his God voices though. He made Zeus sound ridiculous. I hadn't read the book already so I didn't have a character visualized. I think that's why a lot of people didn't like the narrator. My daughter didn't like him at all but she has read the books a dozen times.
