"Adventure follows chaotic adventure at a rapid pace, and readers with even a passing acquaintance with the Odyssey will enjoy this fresh use of familiar stories." (School Library Journal)
The narrator doesn't get the inflection on several characters right. His interpretation of how they sound and how they emotionally say their lines is way off. He makes the strong daughter of Athena, who smacks of hubris, whinny. It just doesn't fit. If you can look past it, it's a decent story.
Sorry. I'm not a print reader, they put me to sleep.
Nothing stuck out more, the whole book, to me, was enjoyable.
No, but I'll look for others.
Like I said earlier, the whole book was entertaining.
I've seen the first movie, and now heard the 2nd book. Just got the 3rd book of the series and am ready to start it. Great job Rick, thank you!
This story had a lot of detail and it was so entertaining. Loved it so much.
But the story gets shorter though the books and I don't like the performance but the story's only get better
I started listening to this series so I can have something to talk to my nephew about and now I'm a complete fan. What a great series! Entertaining and funny. Leaves you feeling good at the end and wanting more.
I have always enjoyed the book the odyssey and when I read this book it reminded me of a modern day one. I love the fact that we get to learn more about annabeth and her background. We haven't learned too much about her with the first novel but it was great to learn more.
I love how the entire book has a lot of the islands visited on the odyssey journey. I think that the way that Mr. Riordan made it was simply amazing. It was so humorous and entertaining.
Jesse Bernstein is simply as I must state it the voice of Percy Jackson. He is my favorite out of all of the narrators for Percy. I'm getting more use to annabeth's voice but I love his Percy voice. Tyson is done great as well. I really get the feel of Tyson when he does the voice as well.
The difference between reading it and listening to it is amazing. I'm sure that any if not most percy jackson fans would enjoy listening to this.
