Fun, humorous, entertaining
Sadie Kane is my favorite character because of the way Rick Riordan has given her a great sense of humor as she goes through teen angst, the pains of becoming a magician, and some incredible adventures.
They infuse both main characters with a living, breathing personality that is both believable and accessible to the reader/ listener. And every other character comes to life as well!
...laugh mostly, cry a couple of times.
Love this whole series. It's not just a "kids" book. I love the Egpytian mythology facts as Riordan weaves them seamlessly into the story. I love that he has created a REAL muticultural family. Just a great time!
Percy is back!
Riordan has woven a great tale based on characters we came to love in the first series of Percy Jackson and the Olymypians. Only now he's put a twist on things. He keeps us interested. There's never a dull moment. And as always it's filled humor readers of all ages can appreciate.
Ella the harpy!
As a bookseller, Riordan continues to be a favorite author for kids...and their parents, too! It's actually common to find that parents have read Riordan's books right along with their kids.
Yes because she has a spiritual approach to writing and has learned to make her writing her meditation. I especially recommend it to anyone with writer's block.
Yes, I have many meditator friends who would appreciate this integration of buddhist meditation and writing.
Yes because in this special audio edition she's reading it 20 years after writing it and as a bonus, offers her personal updated reflections looking back on her own work.
No. It's dense in it's content so it need reflection to "digest" it. And there are writing exercises.
Natalie has a funny "Jewish Mom" sort of character that makes it all the more enjoyable. The only drawback is the clarity of the recording, but it's not a hindrance.
