The story is good but the reader was appalling. I had to stop listening and read the book instead. Jesse Bernstein has a whiny voice, is terrible at at accents (and often picks a very jarring accent), can't pronounce greek words, does not seem to understand the descriptors 'angry' or 'silky' and was frankly racist in his representation of Ethan Nakamura. I would strongly suggest that these books be re recorded by someone with some talent, skill and education.
A conclusion to a wonderful series.
Annabeth was my favorite in this novel. Her ability to see through the misdirection being thrown at her constantly is very impressive.
I have listened to this entire series narrated by Jesse Bernstein. He remained consistent throughout the series and it was very enjoyable.
It absolutely was.
Enjoying audiobooks daily!
*MILD SPOILERS* This is one of my fav books in the series. There was so much action, suspense, confusion and death. Lots of loss. Its was often sad. I was happy with the ending overall. They FINALLY KISS! Five books later, but it happens! You know of whom I speak! Good stuff. Narration still just ok per usual as he is good at being Percy but not versatile enough to be anyone with an accent. It would have been better if there were multiple narrators, like "The Cane Chronicles."
Yes I would listen to it again and maybe I would like it better this time.
The fight sequences were really good and I liked how Percy thought through and came to the decisions that he made.
I have listned to all all Jesse Bernstein's narations of the Percy Jackson books and I have enjoyed his performances each time wether or not I have liked the writing.
No I did not.
Though I liked the fight sequences of the book I have to say in someways I felt let down by the end of series. I just didn't really like the romance angle of the book despite realising early on that Percy and Annabeth would end up together. Other than that I would encourage anyone to listen to the Percy Jackson and the Olymipians series.
Jesse Bernstien has a great reading voice that really pulls you into the story!
All the rest of the Percy Jackson books, because they are all simply amazing!
The voices are great and the performance is top notch!
Both! But I have come to expect nothing less from Rick Riordan
Rick Riodan's final story is outstanding. Twists and turns and yet the prophecy is fulfilled. Very well written.
Rick does a great job filling in backgrounds and giving details even if you are a new listener.
Jesse doesn't do a good job differeniating between characters. Sometimes they all run together. He has some potential, but needs work.
I loved the story and really wanted to know how it ended. It was so good, I spent an evening at home listening to it. I usually do all my listening when I travel. I got started on this story and didn't want to stop.
Percy because he is brave, fearless and won't go down without a fight
When the party ponies helped Percy fight the monsters.
I love the book and I can't put it down.
Lots and lots of action. Had some things figured out before they happened but a good writer often foreshadows. :) A wonderful end to a spectacularly fun series.
This book was fast pass and had a lot of action. Found myself listening to it in the car and at work.
books 1 thru 4 of this series are a great lead up to this book.
Jesse Bernstein's performance was the best.
the book did make me sad when some of the characters died.
Discovered audio books as a way to pass the time at work and now I'm hooked.
Absolutely. Riordan's use of Greek mythology in modern times makes it a compelling read.
Here, there be dragons. Riordan does a great job of taking existing literature and weaving it into a compelling new story.
I would have to say the fight in New York.
