All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of victory are grim. Kronos's army is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, the evil Titan's power only grows.

While the Olympians struggle to contain the rampaging monster Typhon, Kronos begins his advance on New York City, where Mount Olympus stands virtually unguarded. Now it's up to Percy Jackson and an army of young demigods to stop the Lord of Time.

In this momentous final book in the New York Times best-selling Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, the long-awaited prophecy surrounding Percy's 16th birthday unfolds.

    "Son loves this series!"
    Where does The Last Olympian: Percy Jackson, Book 5 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top ranking from my 10 year old. I enjoyed the additional humor in this story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    We both like Percy & Grover


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

    He adds unexpected dimensions to the characters with his vocal interpretation. His narration has come a long ways over the course of the series - it has been a pleasure to listen to his growth.


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

    Adventure abounds!

    "The Prophecy"

    Days left till the final battle. Demigods prepare to fight the impossible war that is coming and the Gods are busy fighting another threat. How do you win a war with the Titans when the Gods are not there.

    a exciting end to the series. with twists no one would expect. Just a few more hours till you get to the end make sure you have time to listen to this because its going to be painful if you have to stop lots while you listen.

    "Great series to share with kids"

    My 8 year old grandson and I listened to the entire series - twice! I like the values of friendship, diversity, leadership shared among the male and female characters, My grandson loves the action, and I enjoy the fun of the use of contemporary cultural icons in a whimsical way.

    "Absolutely terribble performance"

    The story is good but the reader was appalling. I had to stop listening and read the book instead. Jesse Bernstein has a whiny voice, is terrible at at accents (and often picks a very jarring accent), can't pronounce greek words, does not seem to understand the descriptors 'angry' or 'silky' and was frankly racist in his representation of Ethan Nakamura. I would strongly suggest that these books be re recorded by someone with some talent, skill and education.

    "Very Enjoyable"
    What made the experience of listening to The Last Olympian: Percy Jackson, Book 5 the most enjoyable?

    A conclusion to a wonderful series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Annabeth was my favorite in this novel. Her ability to see through the misdirection being thrown at her constantly is very impressive.


    Have you listened to any of Jesse Bernstein’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to this entire series narrated by Jesse Bernstein. He remained consistent throughout the series and it was very enjoyable.


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

    It absolutely was.

    Story
    "It's FINALLY the end."

    *MILD SPOILERS* This is one of my fav books in the series. There was so much action, suspense, confusion and death. Lots of loss. Its was often sad. I was happy with the ending overall. They FINALLY KISS! Five books later, but it happens! You know of whom I speak! Good stuff. Narration still just ok per usual as he is good at being Percy but not versatile enough to be anyone with an accent. It would have been better if there were multiple narrators, like "The Cane Chronicles."

    "Alright Ending to a Great Series"
    Would you listen to The Last Olympian: Percy Jackson, Book 5 again? Why?

    Yes I would listen to it again and maybe I would like it better this time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Olympian: Percy Jackson, Book 5?

    The fight sequences were really good and I liked how Percy thought through and came to the decisions that he made.


    Have you listened to any of Jesse Bernstein’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listned to all all Jesse Bernstein's narations of the Percy Jackson books and I have enjoyed his performances each time wether or not I have liked the writing.


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

    No I did not.


    Any additional comments?

    Though I liked the fight sequences of the book I have to say in someways I felt let down by the end of series. I just didn't really like the romance angle of the book despite realising early on that Percy and Annabeth would end up together. Other than that I would encourage anyone to listen to the Percy Jackson and the Olymipians series.

    Jesse Bernstien has a great reading voice that really pulls you into the story!

    The voices are great and the performance is top notch!

    "great end to a series"
    What made the experience of listening to The Last Olympian: Percy Jackson, Book 5 the most enjoyable?

    Rick Riodan's final story is outstanding. Twists and turns and yet the prophecy is fulfilled. Very well written.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Rick does a great job filling in backgrounds and giving details even if you are a new listener.


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

    Jesse doesn't do a good job differeniating between characters. Sometimes they all run together. He has some potential, but needs work.


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

    I loved the story and really wanted to know how it ended. It was so good, I spent an evening at home listening to it. I usually do all my listening when I travel. I got started on this story and didn't want to stop.
