Publisher's Summary

When Percy Jackson receives an urgent distress call from his friend Grover, he immediately prepares for battle. He knows he'll need his powerful demigod allies, Annabeth and Thalia, at his side; his trusty bronze sword, Riptide; and...a ride from his mom.

The demigods race to the rescue, to find that Grover has made an important discovery: two new powerful half-bloods whose parentage is unknown. But that's not all that awaits them. The Titan lord, Kronos, has set up his most devious trap yet, and the young heroes have just fallen prey.

Hilarious and action-packed, this third adventure in the series finds Percy faced with his most dangerous challenge so far: the chilling prophecy of the Titan's curse.

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

    "Nice Book, Bad Audio"

    The narrator for this book is horrible! The previous two weren't this bad, but this one... I don't know if there was a change in directors or something, but suddenly all of the dialogue sounds like something out of a 2nd grade play instead of anything professional. What's even worse is the decision to use a bunch of "silly" voices and bad, unnecessary accents. The voice for the Pegasus in the beginning was horrible and made my head hurt. The accent used for the Manticore was also frustrating. The worst, though, was near the end. There was absolutely no reason to give Mrs. Chase an accent, and doing so, especially the way it was done, is actually quite racist.
    The book itself was fine. The story was great. I did get the sense that the writer didn't understand the purpose of "thees and thous," since the character who speaks like that doesn't really use them properly. But other than that, there's no problem with the writing.
    The narration, though, really ruined my enjoyment of the book. I bought the first 5 out of the 6 books in the series from Audible, but I won't be continuing with them. Instead, I'll go to the library and borrow the print books.

    "Percy's not just for kids"

    I have enjoyed all of Rick Riordan's books. I pre-read for my children and have been amazed with his skills. I'm a very tough reader on a writer. I over examine style, prose, and story. I have loved his books.

    "Great continuation of the Percy Jackson Series"

    my only issue is that the narrator did not keep all the characters' voices consistent from the first book to this book, which makes it more difficult to follow the flow of the book since it is different from what your mind expects.

    "make better voices for Tyson & Annabeth's stepmom"
    Would you listen to The Titan's Curse again? Why?

    Yes. All of our three boys very much enjoy Rick Riordan's books. We have read and re-read them many times. We have the movies. It's wonderful!


    Did Jesse Bernstein do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    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.

    "Great family listen!"

    I purchased the first book of this series to listen to on our road trip for Spring Break. After 12 hours of driving we had only less than an hour left and they didn't want to get out of the car!! Very well written and read and my children enjoyed it so much we have purchased them all!! We are now on the 3rd book and listen to it every time we are in the car. This has also had a pleasant side affect of no more sibling squabbling while driving...lol

    Highly recommend!!

    "3rd book 3rd Homerun for Rick Riordan"
    Would you listen to The Titan's Curse again? Why?

    Of course I'll listen it again, the performance of the narrator is spectacular, gives you the necessary amount of emotion the book needs for you to be envolved in the plot.The story is really good, I like it more than the second book, the twists in the story are really good, some of them predictible, some don't that's great about this book, you can try to guess what the evil side thinks or plots sometimes you guess sometimes don't, I recommended to everyone, specially those who like the greek mithology


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot twists, try to guess the next move of the bad or good guys and specially I like how the author pictures the modern versions of the Myth gods


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Burrito Fight in the Damn


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

    yes alot


    Any additional comments?

    Is a really good series, needs more promotion AND NO MORE MOVIES LIKE THE FIRST ONE

    "Love the book, hate the offensive accents"
    What did you like best about The Titan's Curse? What did you like least?

    I really love these stories, I read them when I was in middle school, and re-listening to them has been great. I really like the stories, they're told in a really cute way and the writing is simple but good.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The voice used for Annabeth's stepmom is unforgivably racist. Overdone, "comical" Asian accents aren't funny and they're really offensive and I dont know why the narrator would do that, the director would approve it, and the publishers and audible would allow it to go out like that. These kinds of stereotypes are harmful.Also, Tyson's voice is really unfortunate, it's ableist and offensive and I'm really disappointed that either of these voices were allowed to happen in the first place (and continue throughout the series).

    "Good humoured fast moving adventue"

    Mount Olympus is still with us, moving as the seat power in Western civilization moves it's now in America. The gods are still falling for mortal women and having half-blood children, the heroes whose battlefireld reflexes get them diagnosed with ADHD in the modern classroom.
    The monsters, magical creatures, gods and young heroes are all well voiced in this gripping adventure. It adds to the fun if you've read the two previous books, but this adventure can stand on it's own.
    Percy has been warned about his fatal flaw, and the prophecy that says a child of the gods will bring about thier defeat. Will he be that child?
