Publisher's Summary

After a summer spent trying to prevent a catastrophic war among the Greek gods, Percy Jackson finds his seventh-grade school year unnervingly quiet. His biggest problem is dealing with his new friend, Tyson, a six-foot-three, mentally challenged homeless kid who follows Percy everywhere, making it hard for Percy to have any "normal" friends.

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

    "great family fare"

    My 11 and 9-year-old kids (a boy and a girl) have really enjoyed this series and I have gotten caught up in it too. The story is fun and engaging. There are a series of battles and challenges and plenty of suspense, but it is all laced with humor. The books have also gotten my kids very interested in learning about Greek mythology-- bonus! The reader is pretty good with voices and does a convincing teenage narrator. I'm glad they've chosen to go with the same reader for both books in the series so far and hope they continue. The first book in the series is called the Lightening Thief.

    "Sophmoric"

    Rick Riordan's second book in the Olympus series is quite good, but is not as entertaining as the first book. However, much like JK Rowling, his second book seems to be a spring-board for upcoming books in the series: Events that transpire in book 2 will likely be relevant in later books in the series. I look forward to "The Titan's Curse".

    "Genuinely Wonderful Teen Writer"

    My teenage daughter loves to read and has thoroughly enjoyed Riordan's books. I have also read these stories and they are very well written. I am an extremely difficult to please reader and I actually enjoyed this book. I prefer paper to my MP3 but the plot and story line was well thought out and planned. The flow is great and the Greek history or Greek God stories actually play a phenomenal part in the stories. The way the author flows the historical stories of the Greek gods with the present is inspiring and just fun. He leaves something for the next book and keeps you wanting more. I believe Rick Riordan is very talented writer and I read about 30 to 40 novels per year and listen to the same amount.

    "This is realy good book"

    I previously owned the book but this audio makes the book feel all new to me. It makes it feel like I am acually there with Percy as he is the nearly getting blasted by dodgeballs of death. It was defiantly woth my time.

    "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!

    "Decent"

    It's a kids book, so as an adult, the plot devices are nothing to write home about. It's got some interesting ideas, which is what made me come back and listen to this, the second book in the series. The narrator is prone to overacting, and his voices are marginal, but it's still a halfway decent listen.
