I have been listening to the series and have enjoyed all of them. I think the Son of Neptune is the best story of the series.
I love the introduction of more characters, as a listener I am visualizing the richness of the characters.
Tie between Ella and Frank. Ella because she is so quirky and Frank because he is having a hard time believing he is special.
Hard call, Joshua is amazing with portrayal of characters. Ella, I think.
No, I want it to go on and on!
One of my favorites.
I really enjoyed the interaction of the characters. The flow between the three main characters and having the book written from the perspectives of each. I loved the ending which left me looking forward to the next book, but completely wrapped up the plot.
I really enjoyed the capture by/ escape from the Amazons. I couldn't keep from laughing.
The story was very engaging and wove well into the entire Percy Jackson/demi-god world, adding some familiar and some new aspects to the entire modern mythological tale.
I liked the loyalty and friendship that was formed among the main characters as they carried out their quest.
I like his enthusiasm and energy and he has a very nice voice, however, I would like to see him grow in his profession by developing more range in expressing different characters, and I would like him to be aware of pronunciation errors. It is not good to have a reader mis-pronounce basic words since these errors will now be spread due to his public performance (e.g. 'principia' is pronounced [prin-sip'-ee-uh] with an 's' not a 'k' sound in the second syllable). There are other errors, but it would be boring to list them all..... :)
Haven't read the print version, but well performed audio books are usually even better than the print version and this was very well done.
Absolutely! It's a terrific book and an excellent performance.
The Lost Hero, the first book in the Heroes of Olympus series.
Joshua Swanson does an excellent job with energy and voices.
Jesse Bernstein was the reader of the first 5 Percy Jackson books and his was a hard act to follow. In "The Lost Hero" Joshua Swanson took awhile to warm to his work, but don't be discouraged. He hits his stride in this book and really did a terrific job.
Yes, I would, even though they are still a middle school read I will.
That Rick is maturing the books as the kids (like myself) who read the first books in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians grow up and still can read the books.
Yes! but of course i couldn't cause of the daily toils of high school.
Bass God in Training
This story is more exciting than the previous books! I really enjoyed the fish out of water element, and Percy not remembering who or where he was!
The whole book was riveting! I couldn't pick a most memorable moment.
My favorite scene was the main characters tricking the God out of his home in Alaska by dragging him 10 miles into Canada!
I'm a corporate training consultant and adjunct professor who loves to read! I'm always looking for the next big thing.
I love Rick Riordan's take on mythology. All of his Percy Jackson books (as well as the Kane Chronicles) have been terrific. Admittedly, I liked the first Percy Jackson series just a bit more than the Heroes of Olympus series. Even so, it's still a great read, and I am incredibly hopeful that more and more people will become interested in mythology because of these books.
