My nephews have been living with me since the start of the school year and we`ve listened to so many books together. We`ve really enjoyed similar books like Stanek`s amazing Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches. This is the first one we`ve read by Riordan and we all liked it. It has a similar mysterious and thrilling feel to it as Stanek`s books but more of a mystery than a fantasy.
My daughter and I have been listening to this for the last couple of weeks with keen excitement. It has been wonderful to see her drawn into the historical elements, the rich language and vivid characterisations. Thoroughly enthralling!
I cannot say more about Riordan than I will read anything he writes and my kids will also. If he wrote a post-it note list, I might just read that too.
This is a very cute story and has some great ideas and twists. I just wish he had written the next few books in the series.
I am now on book 4 and loving it. I didn't know it was a childrens book but have enjoyed so much anyway. There is lots of history hidden in the story and I will share this with my granddaughters. I wish it wasn't quite so much for each book as they are short and require many purchases.
I downloaded this for my 13 year old daughter and she loved it. She can't wait to listen to the next one.
David Pittu was a great narrator. YOU MUST LISTEN!
The reader was very entertaining.
It kept my 9 & 11 year olds very engaged. Now we are reading the second book.
He is great at changing his voice.
Yes, but we used it on a long car ride.
Listened while driving on a trip with my mom. Love the way Rick Riordan tells a story and teaches us a little history. David Pittu does an excellent job narrating this book and bringing it to life.
Hard to have a favorite character. Some are over the top while others are you relate to and see a bit of yourself in them. I do really like the boy in Dan; impressed with the fart study. Love that Amy, like so many young girls, does not see her worth but starts to believe in herself.
I love the voices. He really brings the book to life. I liked him so much I looked up other books he has narrated.
Yes, couldn't wait to get the chance to listen to more of it. Was sad when it ended and I hadn't purchased the next book.
I am married with a teenage son and run my own business. As I am visually impaired, audio books are my life.
I WAS PLEASANTLY SURPRISED WITH THIS BOOK AND THOROUGHLY ENJOYED THE STORY LINE AND LOOK FORWARD TO THE REST OF THE SERIES. I UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS 10 BOOKS AND IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE HOW THE OTHER AUTHORS GO. THE TITLE PUT ME OFF LISTENING TO IT BUT IT WAS PRETTY GOOD
Absolutley! Great narration, and a gripping plot with mant twists and turns. I was surprised how much the adults in the car enjoyed the book... as much ( or even more than!) the kids!
This is a great listen on a long journey. Appeals to young and old. My daughter (9) and myself listened to this yesterday driving from Dunedin to Te Anau - I now have to get the next book for the return journey!
