    Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. No matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to stay out of trouble. But can he really be expected to stand by and watch while a bully picks on his scrawny best friend? Or not defend himself against his pre-algebra teacher when she turns into a monster and tries to kill him? Of course, no one believes Percy about the monster incident; he's not even sure he believes himself.

    "Great book, poor reading"
    Overall

    This is a wonderful book but the narrator was poor. Not so bad that I wouldn't listen to it again but if you are not driving or listening as you work I would recommend reading it.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you ever thought history was boring, David McCullough’s performance of his fascinating book will change your mind. In this stirring audiobook, McCullough tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence, when the whole American cause was riding on their success.

    The veil to the underworld has been torn, and Rahl, from beyond the veil, begins to summon a sinister power more dreadful than any he has wielded before. Horrifying creatures escape through the torn veil, wreaking havoc on the unsuspecting world above.

    Bo Laughlin says: "Great Book - Almost ruined by the narrator"
    "Good fanasty book"
    Overall

    This is a good continuation of the book 1. Sometimes, I felt like it was a bit 14-year old boyish but for the most part it was fun. The narrator took a bit for me to like but he definitely gets better and by the end of the book has mastered the reading.

    "Excellent book"
    Overall

    This is definitely the best of the series. Good ideas and fun to read. Too bad the tv series is butchering it! The voice actor does a good job.
