These stories are fun and entertaining, but the guy they hired to read them is absolutely awful. His character "voices" all sound the same and are equally irritating. If only Jim Dale had been allowed to read this one...
Rick Riordan is a master story teller, I really love his modernization of Greek mythology in these books. The introduction of Tyson made this book for me. One question though why did Blackjack change genders? This is the only book where the character is a mare.
It began where the first book left off.. I like how the chain of books go in a story line and it doesn't seem like u missed a year out of the characters life or anything.
To me these are similar to the Septmus Heap books.. (don't know if I spelled that right).. but it deals with the different opticals the characters go through as they grow up at they same time they learn about their past.
This book is fun to listen to, the performance is good and it has something everyone in the family would enjoy.
Love this series. Great for all ages. Rick Riordan has brought back my love of mythology. You will really enjoy all his books.
