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
I love listening to these kids of stories in the car...easy to follow...fun for the kids. But the narrator is really bad. His voice is nasally and when he does the characters voices they are stilted. The narration is very distracting from the story so that even a 12 year old who loves the books - doesn't want to listen. Don't waste your credits.
For anyone searching for a new story with lots of excitement and danger, this is it! LOVED every single one and hope there might be another!! Also, very PG/PG-13 in the romance category, nothing bigger than a first kiss, and very charming!
