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.

    "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?

    "Riordan is a Great story teller."

    I have enjoyed every Rick Riordan book I have read. He has become a masterful writer. I greatly enjoy books that have plot, theme, and just enough reality for my imagination to impose the possibilities of reality. Rick incorporates real places with real written history to make fantastic representations of present possibilities. He is very good. I am also an adult, a parent, and a doctor. I read every day as well as my daughter and we both love his books.

    "Intricate plot over many books"

    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.

    How could the performance have been better?

    I wanted to love it, but my heart tells me Annabeth is not an uptalker? It drove me crazy to listen to this strong female character sound so unsure of herself?

    "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.

    "another great story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Battle of the Labyrinth: Percy Jackson, Book 4 to be better than the print version?

    I would not only because I am more found of my rendition but Jesse did a great job.

    "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.
