Such a great series, such a great narrator!!!
Joshua Swanson has the ability to make the book & characters come to life. I'd definitely listen to more books narrated by him. I'm EXTREMELY disappointed the narrator changed after this book - the pronunciations & voices of the character change, not for the better! =(
These books are so well done! They have engaging characters interwoven into modern versions of ancient myths & morality tales. I recommend them highly. Kids/teens will identify with the characters, learning by accident. (Too bad they really, really messed up the movies.)
The author did a good job of wrapping up the many plot lines without making it seem contrived or rushed. The characters have to examine what is the honorable, right, fair, just, honest, & loyal thing to do as they complete their adventures with humor and derring-do. They form close friendships & learn about themselves.
Yes take out the homosexuality out of the book, it is not needed, then this would be a great book! I am disappointed in the author, he ruined a good series
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.
I have listened to all of the Percy Jackson books and I have pretty much lost steam at this point. Each book is more and more similar to the previous one. Sometimes that works, but in this case, there is almost no innovation to each book. I originally thought the premise of the stories was clever -- why create new stories when you can just borrow from Greek and Roman mythology? Genius! -- but it is as though the author is on auto-pilot. I made it through because I listened to it at 3x speed and even then didn't really have to pay attention to get through it. I'm not planning to read any more Percy Jackson books.
Its childish considering the characters are teenagers not fifth graders.
Yes! The end keeps you waiting and you cant stop there!
He sounds like 34 different people!
Well of course! I mean what else are you supposed to do during a five hour drive?
