I don't think it's better or worse, just a matter of what you prefer. I downloaded this for my 11-year old who struggles with reading, but all the kids at school are reading the Percy Jackson books. His dad bought him the book, but he was having a hard time with some of the big words and challenging names. I had him listen to the audio and read the book at the same time. The audio is unabridged, and it worked beautifully. He doesn't have any issues with the narration, and we recently downloaded the second book in the series.
All of the other Percy Jackson books. They're the hip hop happenin' thing right now.
I've never had to narrate an entire book before. I've narrated short films, commercials, infomercials. I'm not judging.
The story was good. However the writing was not so so great. Also, not a fan of the narrator's voice. After hearing so much about this series I was excepting a bit more. Overall, I'd be curious to see where the rest of the books go.
I wasn't too into this book. It was a little too young for my taste. Also, I found the fight scenes to be rather boring. Just wanted to read the book before I watched the movie.
25 year old TEXAN-- I like fictional characters more than actual people
Demigods are awesome
Grover because he's always there when Percy needs him.
I noticed a lot of reviews ragging on Jesse Bernstein's narration... My opinion is that his performance was overall great. It took me a little while to get used to the way he speaks but I didn't have any issues with it. I don't think it took away from the story at all. I actually think it adds to the story.
Everything about this book was"perfect" I loved it the narrator was as perfect as the story please ask him to narrate all your books. This book made me really feel in the world of Percy Jackson.
