Possibly because of all the different voices
The Aquarium in Georgia
When Anabeth tricked arachnid
No, over a few weeks
1*=I didn't like it..... 2*=It was OK...... 3*=It was good but I will never read it again.......... 4*=Maybe I will read it again in the future.............. 5*=I will definitely read it again(maybe more than once)
The main thing is, that I'm far from the target age of the series,
but ever since the Percy Jackson movie (2010),
I started reading from the beginning,because I couldn't believe
that book would be the same piece of **** as the movie,
and indeed it was very interesting and much better than Chris Columbus production, but ever since Rick Riordan's new serieses (Heroes of Olympus; Kane Chronicles) the quality has significantly dropped.
The Idea of multiply divided world and the gods with schizophrenic paranoia and multiple personality disorder, might be interesting but presentation was not as good as first five books.
I dropped Kane chronicles in the middle of the first book,
the Heroes of Olympus took me 2.5 books to finally understand,
that I should wait the end of the series and perhaps read it then.
Heroes of Olympus series doesn't have the same appeal as the first five books.
its in the top of the list
overall i like the person that read the first set better. I guess its that i was use to the voices of the char. from him
no, its just a great story line

This is Rick Riordan at his best! I think this is my favorite book in the Percy Jackson universe. Plus I loved finally getting to see parts of the story from Annabeth's viewpoint! That was great!
Many of loose ends were tied up, while still leaving enough to make the wait for the next book horribly long.
I've got to say that I am majorly jealous of Rick's writing skill. All of his books are awesome because of the great characters, great plot line, and his incredible research! But what makes his books shine above the others? His awesome sense of humor. It's amazing how he can add the strangest things to mythology, like having a giant that loves the ballet, or satyr that's obsessed with MMA.
Estate planning lawyer and mom to two boys. My older son liked audiobooks as an infant, and I've listened to a lot since then.
As always, an interesting story with humor and mythology.
I'm glad that Riordan has continued his mythology series, and has woven in characters from the original Camp Half Blood series into this new one. This was an interesting storyline, though I feel his best ones were found in the original Percy Jackson books.
Certainly the Riordan mythology series work well as audiobooks -- the characters and humor translate well, and the reader did a good job with the different voices, and building excitement. That said, my personal preference is for the other narrators used on the Riordan books.
No. But it was suspenseful.
Neither my 10 year old son nor I have liked this series as much as the original Percy Jackson series or Riordan's Egyptian mythology series. Nonetheless, this installment was well done. My son wanted to zip through it. He keeps pestering me about the next one, so despite being a tad off from the Riordan highwater mark, it is still the most exciting series going to him.
Once again Rick Riordan has delivered. This series has been great fun for both myself and my daughter to listen to. The mythilogical references are great conversation starters for us and have ignited an interest in my daughter.
I would compare Rick Riordan's books to Harry Potter, engaging and entertaining for all ages.
I love all kinds of books but don't really read them anymore I would rather listen to them but I will still buy the book if I love it enough to collect it.
Another wonderful series to listen to this is the second to last book of the series and I have listened to all of his books and own them all and would suggest it to anyone who loves books about the Roman and Greek gods and their mortal children
Yes, I enjoy listening to books while I drive, walk, crochet and work around the house. It is a great way to keep up with all the great books written.
Yes, it was a fun book with good narration. A definite listen if you have read or listened to the first two in the series.
I rarely have the opportunity to listen to a book in one sitting, especially one this long. But this book would hold my interest if I were listening to it on an extended car trip.
I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
Great series for all ages. Writer is witty and the story is very interesting. I love to hear about the Greek and Roman gods in a modern day setting.
