    Story
    "Love the book, not happy with the narrator."

    The book itself is great, but the narrator kind of ruins the experience for me. His characters all sound the same and he doesn't express their emotions very well.

    "Great story, bad preformance"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I love this series and after reading the first book with my son, got the second on audible so we could listen in the car. Once again the story is fantastic. Rick Riordan does an amazing job blending Myth, history and the modern world into something really magical. The problem is the narrator. He's terrible. He mispronounces words left and right and, when not using a character voice (the only decent part of his performance) he uses what amounts to baby talk. It's insulting to the intelligence of the kids these books were meant for, and frankly, highly annoying and grating. We will likely switch back to reading to each other in what little spare time we have instead of listening to the rest of this series.


    Was The Sea of Monsters worth the listening time?

    The story is totally worth it and I recommend both this series of books and the following one.

    Story
    "Brace Yourself"

    This book was amazing! Just as good as the first one! It was enthralling and an overall mysterious feel as if the next step they took could have been off a cliff. But on the other hand the narrator was'nt as good with some of the characters, they just sounded either shrill or dopey or flat or all three. I would consider buying this as a real book but since Jesse spoke as Percy most of the time it was'nt the worst. Great book and the audiobook is good if your hands are busy. If you have time I would try to read the book. Just one warning, have the next book ready to read right away!

    "Excellent"

    Loved the story, a great sequel to its predecessor. Loved the surprise at the end. Fantastically written. I'm going to read the next.

    "Good story, poor narration"

    Love the Greek mythology, so I enjoyed the book itself. However the narrator was extremely lackluster in his rendition of the character dialogue. For example if a character spoke "calmly" the narration didn't come off as calm.

    "Great"

    .My 10YO has listened to it multiple times. It is hard to get him to do anything else once he has started.

    "Great Book"

    I bought this for my son. He listened to the whole book in one weekend. It kept his attention and he wants to read the next book.

    "Another wonderful Percy Jackson book"

    A must read for all kids, and adults. My only problem is that it was too short.

    "Jesse Berns is a Terrible Narrator"

    These stories are fun and entertaining, but the guy they hired to read them is absolutely awful. His character "voices" all sound the same and are equally irritating. If only Jim Dale had been allowed to read this one...
