    After a summer spent trying to prevent a catastrophic war among the Greek gods, Percy Jackson finds his seventh-grade school year unnervingly quiet. His biggest problem is dealing with his new friend, Tyson, a six-foot-three, mentally challenged homeless kid who follows Percy everywhere, making it hard for Percy to have any "normal" friends.

    Bridget Westhoven says: "great family fare"
    "Sophmoric"
    Overall

    Rick Riordan's second book in the Olympus series is quite good, but is not as entertaining as the first book. However, much like JK Rowling, his second book seems to be a spring-board for upcoming books in the series: Events that transpire in book 2 will likely be relevant in later books in the series. I look forward to "The Titan's Curse".

    A handful of people. From different backgrounds, living in different towns and cities across America, they had nothing in common - except fear. Deep in the heart of a sprawling desert, a dark memory called out to them, drawing them to the Tranquility Motel - where the terrifying truth was waiting.

    Barry F. Stinson says: "Brilliant"
    "Tight plot; intriguing ending"
    Overall

    To me, this is prototype Koontz. He got everything right with this one: Character development, a smattering of meaningless detail, an ending full of wonder, suspense, and plenty of horror. For those of you who tire of a long, drawn out plot; this book is not for you. But for those of you who enjoy every delicious step in a 1000 mile journey--you'll love it!

    Percy Jackson isn't expecting freshman orientation to be any fun. But when a mysterious mortal acquaintance appears on campus, followed by demon cheerleaders, things quickly move from bad to worse.

    Felicity says: "The best of Percy Jackson series."
    "Intricate plot over many books"
    Overall

    If the Harry Potter series is the standard, Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series is an admirable try, but still minor league. This 4th book in the series is probably his best; the story plot gets thicker and more intriguing. However, there are chapters that are adventurous but do not add to the developing plot in any way: OK for kids, but less than fulfilling for adults. Overall, a good purchase. I will read/listen to the next book.

    Arthur Penhaligon is not supposed to be a hero. He is, in fact, supposed to die an early death. But then his life is saved by a key shaped like the minute hand of a clock.

    Brooke says: "For 9-12 year olds, excellent"
    "Alice in Wonderland 2000"
    Overall

    The three stars goes to the narrator. He was outstanding. The British accent and vocalization was ideal for this book. Unfortunately, I didn't care for the story. While the quest of the story is well defined (get through the seven days of the week), the plot is quite hodge-podge. It is as if the main character was placed in a series of bizarro dilemmas which are far too outlandish for the imagination. Mr. Monday reminds me of a re-worked 21st century version of Alice in Wonderland--without the enchantment.
