A nice addition to the Percy Jackson series - easily followed and enjoyable for many age levels. My family listened to this while traveling for vacation - enjoyed by all.
Joshua Swanson's performance was halting, childish, and contrived. It sounded like a father trying, and failing, to make a story more exciting for his child, not like a professional voice actor performing a story for his audience. There were a few times where his misreading of the lines led to a completely different meaning than was intended. The voices he used for the gods made them sound like silly caricatures, and girls sounded whiny. His delivery is halting and emotionless and if I didn't like the story so much (and I do, I am an adult and I find Rick Riordan's books to be a fun departure for a break from the daily grind.) I would not have made it through the entire book. That being said, I will buy the next one, but I really hope someone in charge of the book's production reads this because I am not the only listener who feels this way and I don't want to suffer through his reading for the rest of the series.
I love Rick Riordan's natural style. His action is perfectly plotted and his dialogue sparkles. His characters are believable and endearing. The narrator did a great job giving voice to Percy, a daunting task when so many of us have a preconceived notion about what this awesome hero should sound like. This book was another great installment in a series I've grown to expect only the best from. The audiobook is excellent, and I would highly recommend it.
Really loved it.
Creative and imaginative.
Great character variation.
Can't wait for the next one in the series.
We loved this book...better than the lost hero...but it is all going to tie together perfectly...can't wait for number 3

the only reason it was one sitting is it was amazing
There's a lot
Hard to explain, I become part of the story as I read or listen to it. It's amazing. I'm really glad I can enjoy this book by reading or listening to it over and over again!
This book is great!
I liked it all!
The action was great, I could picture the book in my mind.
My son is dyslexic and could not read the book. As a parent, I cannot read as long (hours) as he wants me too.
Rick Riorden books were the first audio to go on his Kindle.
This one just knocked my socks off. I'm a busy person but could not wait to have time for this audio book.
This was my favorite. He really gets into character and I feel like there are 4 people narrating.
because of the voice changes from character to character ! made it a GREAT LISTEN !!
when Percy carried Juno / the old lady all the way to the camp !!
the character comes to life !
laughed out loud at some points !
my 10 year old daughter wanted this book , i try to keep up with her , i cheat a BIT and i get a audio book ! she loves these series , and now i do to !!
