This book was a hard read, very long, lots of long and strange names. By the time we got to the end of the book when reading it, we were lost. And then, we LISTENED! The voice put everything we read together, and was the missing puzzle piece! We had to listen to 11 hours in 2 days to prepare for a test in 7th grade....and it worked! I never suggest listening without reading, but if you read it first, and then listen, it is AWESOME!
I really enjoyed these books except the narrator was a little annoying. I listen to this series while I work. They are easy to listen to and entertaining enough to help me through a repetitive job. I would recommend these despite the narration and listened to the whole series.
I have listened to all the Percy Jackson books and have yet to be let down. If you enjoyed the first books, you won’t be disappointed. Just sad to see any series end, though it is my understanding that there is another series in the Percy Jackson universe that follows the character at an older age. Gonna have to listen and see how that goes *fingers crossed*
I've read the first four books and this one did not disappoint. The narration is so good, I want to listen to the others as well. This book can stand alone, but I recommend reading or listening to the whole series in order. Well written and fun.
More than the book, i love the narrator Jesse Bernstein.
He understands the nuances, the inflections and modulates his voice according to the situation.
In short, he conveys the spirit of the author.
I really like the way the this book brought all the unanswered question together. it really was a great book. I enjoyed it as much as my kids did.
Tell us about yourself! I am the author of "Over the Moon" and "Falling Off the Planet." They are both YA Sci-fi fantasy romance.
I loved it. I really hope this isn't the final book in the series. Rick Riordan just gets better and better. This roller coaster of thrills is filled with amazing monsters mixed with wit and humor. It's a book I'll listen to again and again!
Awesome series, great for young boy readers, not only is it a great story, but it grabs the readers and gets them interested in greek methology. After reading this series my 13 yer old was interested in seeing the movie Troy and any other Greek methology book / movie
