Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Puffin.

Coming soon to Disney+!

Half boy. Half God. ALL Hero.

I look like a normal kid. Only there's a difference. Poseidon, God of the Sea is my dad. Which sounds cool, but actually means there is usually someone (or something), somewhere, trying to kill me.

Now I live at Camp Half-Blood, with other kids like me. But Camp Half-Blood is a bit different to most summer camps. Instead of toasting marshmallows and singing campfire songs, we battle giant cannibals at dodgeball.

This time, we're under attack, and I need to get my hands on the Golden Fleece or we'll be invaded by monsters. Big ones.
 

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM PERCY JACKSON:

  • Monsters
  • Greek Gods
  • Laughs (and terrified screams)

Great Listening for the whole family

It's as good as book 1. Percy and his friends have to go on another quest, but this time without permission. It's full of suspense and adventure, as they tackle monsters and one of their own (a half blood) who has turned against them.

Awesome at any age!

Even at 35, I love this series so much that whilst I was waiting for my next credit to get book 4, I went back and started the series again!

The performance is on point all the way, completely absorbed in each character and so glad they stick to the same narrator throughout the series!

Good book, shame about the reader...

A great children's story - I like how it weaves a modern story in with elements of Ancient Greek Mythology. The main character can be painfully obtuse at times but you don't really mind that too much.

I have to say the my only gripe is the person reading it. Maybe it's me but he seems to be awful at putting expression in to dialogue and given that this story is written in the first person it can make it difficult to enjoy.

Still, once you do get past the narrator it's still a good yarn.

This narrator is abysmal

The story is great but I came so close to turning this off because the narrator is unbelievably annoying. His inflections are all off, leaving sentences hanging in midair like a question for no good reason. His falsetto voice he uses for every female character is also grating. I'd definitely vote you buy the book, and skip this torture!!

Loved the Story

Loved the story, but the reader was awful.
He has a good guy voice and a bad guy voice. It can be really confusing.

There are a few things that I don’t like

I really like the story but the performance’s take a bit of getting use to Percy’s new voice but after a while it gets better. Apart from that it was perfect and like the first book.

Love the book but terrible voice work

I love Percy Jackson series but honestly it’s hard to enjoy with this narrator. The accents are terrible. Either character sound the same or the odd character with different voice is such a bad impression makes me wish that character would come up less. There’s a lack of urgency in important parts where characters meant to be panicked or scream, it all sounds like they just having a monotone conversation still.

offensive

I'd like to start by saying it's a pretty good book but the Australian accent he did was just downright offensive
