Overall 5 stars .. I hope they make a movie for that I want to see the real action ❤
My 9, 7, and 3 year old loved listening to Percy Jackson on our cross country toad trip. The naration was wonderful and kept all of our attention.
it was a good read more from Poseidon this time can't wait for next book
The book itself, the story, was lovely. I wouldn't change anything.
ANYONE. The narration for the first few of these books was better, but by this book the accents and over-the-top overacting had me wincing, and turning off the book because I found it very annoying. There was an entire fight portion with a monster that I actually had to fast-forward through, because it was too bad for me to listen to. I was interested in that part of the story, but could not continue.
I realize this is a book for teens. I have 4 teenage children, and they laughed uproariously and with derision every time there was a new bad accent, to the point they couldn't hear the story. At one point my 14-year old daughter said, GOD MOM, TURN IT OFF, I CAN'T TAKE IT. Then she went on to read the book in print, because she wanted to know the story without that narration.
I really like this book because it is very funny and adventurous. The characters are great and adventurous. I recommend this book to anyone who likes humorous, action packed, well written books. The whole series is amazing and action packed and so are series two, the Kane chronicles, Magnus Chase and the trikes of Apollo.
