The story was great if you read the other books. But if you didn't, it would probably be confusing.
My favorite part was when the beat the giant.
it was so good to have Percy Jackson back.... this book was so good and just a very fun book... I cant wait to read the next one. I hope Rick Riordan keeps on writing more books with the heroes of Olympus....
I absolutely love my audible account, makes its from enjoying a book to loving the stories found in the books. Do forgive my errors in the reviews i do have dyslexia but i will share my love with everyone
Jason now knows where Percy must be. We join Percy in making his way down to the Roman camp. ITS HUGE full of families and they still dress roman. The Romans have traditions and though most are similar they are very different. Percy makes new friends and there is a face he knows but he is not sure how. its driving him nuts.
The way the Narrator kept me entertained. He was able to change his voice enough to help me understand who was saying what in the story, which made the listen very enjoyable, and understandable.
I like Mythology, and anything that resembles it as well. It gives us a glimpse of the past, and throws in fantasy to make it interesting. Stories like this are the only books that interest me, and the truth is, this is the first book I have made it through in years.
Like I mentioned in my first answer, he makes the book come alive in a sense. It had multiple voiced characters, and he showed emotion in his voices. He done great.
A couple laughs for sure, and a lot of me wanting to know more. I am so glad I have the second book, and going to complete it within the next couple weeks.
This is a great site, I hated reading, mainly because my eyes are not the greatest, and I usually get some blurring after a few minutes of reading. This site enables me to enjoy books in a way that is comfortable, and easy for me. Great site, great app, and great narrators.
My family loves the Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus stories. They are full of excitement and have helped my children develop a love of reading. We will definitely listen to this story again.
This story helps children develop an interest in mythology and an interest in researching to find out more. In my opinion anything that helps children gain an interest in thinking and wanting to learn more is a WIN!!
Joshua Swanson is a wonderful reader. My kiddos really like the voice that he brings for Hazel and Frank's Grandmother.
Love listening to audio books at work or on the road.
We got to see what happens to percy and see how the romans really are.
The team coming together
Josh Swanson's performance in the Heroes of Olympus series is fantastic. Very natural without being stilted or overacted. The performances brings Riordan's brilliant storytelling to life. These audiobooks don't conflict with the way I pictured and "heard" the story while reading the books and make hours in the car for vacation travel fly by this summer. I wish the rest of the series and Riordan's books lived up to Swanson's versions!
Down the list
The story is a good Riordan book but the reader is horrible! I want to complete the series so I'm still listening. But the readers from the Kane Chronicles were way better.
