Just brilliant.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. This is Jesse Bernstein in his inimitable Percy mode. He's possibly even better here than in previous recordings. He's a true voice actor, the sheer number of different characters he can conjure is astonishing, and with so much humour in his voice. My grandson says he sounds as excited to be reading the book as we are listening to it. This is a terrific - and laugh out loud funny - introduction to the Greek heroes. This review is from four of us in this family (so far), all of us hooked from the start. Really. I listened to the lot in one sitting, forgetting to eat! It's as much fun for adults revisiting the old myths as it is for young people coming new to the stories. Refreshing, too, to see some female heroes getting the attention they deserve. And one thing we all just love...Jesse Bernstein talking horse! Genius!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Percy Jackson and the Greek Heroes?

We all rather love the 'gross-out alert!' moments. The Grey Sisters are a standout. And Pegasus making his horsey remarks. The shocking story of Perdix. The downfall of King Minos. Too many high points to mention.

Have you listened to any of Jesse Bernstein’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes. He's been the perfect Percy Jackson from the very first book, and just gets better and better. He's a born storyteller, and seems to really enjoy what he's reading. I really do hope that's the case, because we certainly love listening to him. The match-up of book with narrator doesn't come better than this.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, and I did exactly that. My nephew and niece are currently doing the same. Grandson is on his second listen already, and only got the book yesterday.

Any additional comments?

Just that we hope Jesse Bernstein gets to hear what great fun listeners derive from his work. We'd all happily listen to anything else he does.

PERCY JACKSON RULES!!😱

This is such a great book📚! It kept me hooked and I listened to it day and night! There was so much I didn't know about Greek Heroes and Heroines!
I would recommend this 10+! I hope Percy/Rick Riordan writes another book soon!
