Percy Jackson's Greek Gods | [Rick Riordan]

Percy Jackson's Greek Gods

"A publisher in New York asked me to write down what I know about the Greek gods, and I was like, 'Can we do this anonymously?' Because I don't need the Olympians mad at me again. But if it helps you to know your Greek gods, and survive an encounter with them if they ever show up in your face, then I guess writing all this down will be my good deed for the week." So begins Percy Jackson's Greek Gods, in which the son of Poseidon adds his own magic - and sarcastic asides - to the classics.

Publisher's Summary

"A publisher in New York asked me to write down what I know about the Greek gods, and I was like, 'Can we do this anonymously?' Because I don't need the Olympians mad at me again. But if it helps you to know your Greek gods, and survive an encounter with them if they ever show up in your face, then I guess writing all this down will be my good deed for the week."

So begins Percy Jackson's Greek Gods, in which the son of Poseidon adds his own magic - and sarcastic asides - to the classics. He explains how the world was created, then gives listeners his personal take on a who's who of ancients, from Apollo to Zeus. Percy does not hold back: "If you like horror shows, blood baths, lying, stealing, backstabbing, and cannibalism, then read on, because it definitely was a Golden Age for all that."

    Story
    "It is so Great to have Jesse Bernstein back!"
    Where does Percy Jackson's Greek Gods rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    For me this book is the perfecting stopping place while waiting for the next Book of Hero's to come out next month. I've begun to develop my own thoughts and Ideas on how these different characters could play in to the next book. It kinda makes me feel I have a jump of the other readers waiting for Percy, Annabeth, Jason, Piper, Hazel, Frank and of course, my new favorite, Leo.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I understand a lot about Roman and Greek mythology, but to hear Percy take on these God and Monsters is hilarious.


    What about Jesse Bernstein’s performance did you like?

    The way that he moves through the different characters with such ease. The are many new characters voices to portray in this book and Jesse handles each one with new zest and never duplicates the voice, voice inflection or mannerisms used with other characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I don't think the time is right to put this book to film yet.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope that Mr. Riordan's Son continues to work with these characters and story. The possibilities are endless!! I mean c'mon at some point Camp Half Blood may need the help of Carter Kane, Sadie Kane, Bast and Khufu.Wow! Wouldn't that make for a good read. ;)

    "Interesting and funny"
    Any additional comments?

    This book gives a wonderful take on the Greek myths. Having them told by Percy Jackson allows them to be filled with witty and sarcastic comments, making the myths interesting as well as informative. I've always loved the mythology, but now my 7 year old is interested too. She loved listening to this and actually learned from it :-)

    Estate planning lawyer and mom to two boys. My older son liked audiobooks as an infant, and I've listened to a lot since then.

    Story
    "Funny Take on Mythology"
    Would you listen to Percy Jackson's Greek Gods again? Why?

    Yes, it was funny and educational. My son and I were just saying that we needed to review the mythology stories when this came out. And how better than via Percy Jackson and Jesse Bernstein.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Just as humorous as the original Percy Jackson series. It covered both the mythological characters we all know, and some I'd never heard of.


    What does Jesse Bernstein bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is the best narrator for the Riordan books and one of best children's narrators we have run across. He's funny without being distracting. And he does wonderful, distinctive voices for the different characters.


    Any additional comments?

    The Riordan books are a blast for kids and very educational. This one is no exception. This middle aged mom loved it too.

    "Almost Didn't Buy This Book - Glad I Did"

    After listening to the action and adventure tales, I didn't think I'd enjoy this book. Boy, was I wrong! The tales of each of the Gods is funny and pulls you into their story. It's almost like mini Percy Jackson stories in each chapter. It took me several months to decide to buy the book, and I'm very glad I did. Narrator is superb.

    "Best narrator ever"

    The narrator was amazing just like how I imagine percy sounds like. The story was easy to follow and enjoyable. The best part was the way the different gods were portrayed accurately but with sarcasm.

    "Good Percy Jackson Material"

    Its entertaining, and it helps refresh the memory on those old myths. It's a good start for anyone to go into the stories of Rick Riordan about the mythologies.
