Publisher's Summary

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.

In this latest installment of the blockbuster series, time is running out as war between the Olympians and the evil Titan lord, Kronos, draws near. Even the safe haven of Camp Half-Blood grows more vulnerable by the minute as Kronos' army prepares to invade its once impenetrable borders. To stop the invasion, Percy and his demigod friends must set out on a quest through the Labyrinth - a sprawling underground world with stunning surprises at every turn.

Full of humor and heart-pounding action, this latest audiobook promises to be their most thrilling adventure yet.

Don't miss the other titles in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series.

    Story
    "Make better voices for Tyson"
    Would you listen to The Battle of the Labyrinth: Percy Jackson, Book 4 again? Why?

    yes. We have three boys and all love the Percy Jackson series.


    What aspect of Jesse Bernstein’s performance would you have changed?

    I appreciate the desire to make different voices, but the voice for Tyson in particular is annoying - makes him sound dumb. And also, all Asian voices use broken English. As a 4th generation Chinese American, I found this to be profoundly insulting.

    "Not as good, but fun enough"

    Percy is still Percy, but this book just didn't seem as much fun as the previous ones. The plot meandered a lot more, and the new characters weren't that interesting. There are tons of action scenes in all the Percy Jackson books, but in this one, they seemed a bit much, like they were being used for filler. I actually find the antagonist, Luke, and Annabeth, who remains a sidekick character despite nominally being allowed to "lead", a lot more interesting than Percy himself, who seems a bit too perfect now that he's settled into his hero role (the snarkiness is getting a bit tired at this point, and with the plot darkening, seems very incongruent with everything going on around him and makes sound like a jerk at times). Still, interesting enough for me to want to find out how the series ends.

    And Jesse Bernstein's narration is as good as ever.

    "Offensive accents!"
    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?

    Where does The Battle of the Labyrinth: Percy Jackson, Book 4 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This series is not as good as the best ones, such as Harry Potter, but it is very enjoyable. And the narrator is excellent.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The series is funny, I usually laugh.

    "Jesse Bernstein excellent voice for Percy Jackson"
    What made the experience of listening to The Battle of the Labyrinth: Percy Jackson, Book 4 the most enjoyable?

    Jesse's voice captured my 7 year olds' attention immediately! He loved listening to this book so much that he's decided he wants to listen to the entire series. :-) He's hooked and a fan for life. I'd read the books already and knew what great stories they are. Great imagination and wonderful meshing of Olympians, Romans and the modern world. Really great story telling by Riordan!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that Jesse sounds like a young man for this series. It allows you to become more involved in the story.


    Which character – as performed by Jesse Bernstein – was your favorite?

    Percy Jackson

    "A great story"
    If you could sum up The Battle of the Labyrinth: Percy Jackson, Book 4 in three words, what would they be?

    exciting, surprising, unexpected


    What other book might you compare The Battle of the Labyrinth: Percy Jackson, Book 4 to and why?

    The Percy Jackson books, and the Artimis Fowl book are similar in the fact that they are both mystery books aimed at pre-teens. Both are great books that more students should read and great examples of written literacy.


    What didn’t you like about Jesse Bernstein’s performance?

    He needs to work on differencing between the characters. Develop more voices. His reading is smooth - just not attention grabbing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not particularly, due to the reader, but the story line is good.
