    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.

    Would you try another book from Rick Riordan and/or Jesse Bernstein?

    Yes to Rick Riordan. Stuck with Bernstein if I want to finish listening to the series.


    What three words best describe Jesse Bernstein’s performance?

    Cliche. Offensive. Uninspired.


    Any additional comments?

    Good story, terrible delivery. I've listened to the first four Percy Jackson series and the first one was so dry, with all characters read in the same voice - I found myself wishing Bernstein would vary the character voices. Now that he has I prefer the original dry delivery. His performances of the Asian characters is especially offensive! Why on earth would an Asian character automatically have some idiotic caricature of an accent?
