5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
Lets break it down
- is it good?? YES!!!!
- is it better than the first 2 books??? HELL YA!!!!
- After reading this book, if you didn't, will you recommend this series and the series before this one??? of course.
What else???? lets just say there were interesting twists in this book, and there were several times where i laughed a lot.
I did not like his performance in the first book of this series, but I think he has really improved.
Yes! It was very good!
Fantastic story line. I loved seeing both Anabeth's and Percy's point of view.
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.
Audible has changed my life! Dry , itchy eyes were destroying one of my greatest pleasures - reading. Now I am experiencing books again!
As an adult reader, I have been impressed with the Riordan mythology series. There's a good mix of action, education, and just plain silliness that obviously appeals to the young readers who have made Percy and friends so popular. This entry brings back the characters from the "Greek" side of mythology and mixes them with the "Roman" counterparts pretty ingeniously. I also like the way the author sets his stories in America and draws in our country's history and geography as well as the ancient themes and characters.
My question is about the narration of all the Riordan books to which I have listened. Narrators seem to dumb down the voices, bringing out the dopey rather than the imaginative in the series. I find the reading diminishes the value of these books and insults the listeners, and I can't think that children react much differently. Compare them to the wonderful narrations of Jim Dale and Tim Curry in the Harry Potter and "Series of Unfortunate Events" books-- I wish someone would do equal justice to Riordan's work! I'd recommend the written versions over the Audible to both children and adults.
It was amazing couldn't be better!!!!!! :):)
How was the narrator?
He was great I speeded it up and it was TOO fast!!!
What was favorite part?
My favorite part was when Piper and Jason met Heracles!! Greek not Roman
How could you make it better?
I could make it better by changing NOTHING
Not sure what happened.
Riordan's quality has gone drastically downhill since the P Jackson series.
I am very disappointed.
Something by Neil Gaiman
A different book :(
A good reader.
Husband, Father, Son.
Well, I like it both ways. But I would highly recommend the audio. The narrator does a good job with the characters and overall good job with reading the book.
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.
