In this book Percy is on a new quest: to find the Golden Fleece. It was better than the first. ( )

Fantastic story for anyone that that's a fan of Greek mythology. Tore through it in no time at all. Written for middle school age readers, but I think older readers can enjoy this series just as much. ( )

This was a fun, easy read. I think what I enjoy most about this series is that the characters face the same obstacles that Odysseus did. I'm trying to figure out what would be better, to read the Odyssey first, and then these, or read these, and then the Odyssey...? ( )

3.5 stars

In book 2 of the series, half-human/half-god Percy is looking forward to heading back to Camp Half-Blood for the summer after grade 7, but there have been problems at the camp. Percy and his friends must go on a quest to save the camp.

I had hoped that listening to the audio might draw me in a little more. The audio was fun and I did enjoy it, enough to rate it “good”, 3.5 stars. I did lose focus occasionally and I thought the Grover storyline was just silly, but it's a kid's book, so I suppose for most interested in reading the book, silly is ok. ( )

Quotations
Humans don't exist on the same level as the immortals. They can't even be hurt by our weapons. But you, Percy--you are part god, part human. You live in both worlds. You can be harmed by both, and you can effect both. That's what makes heroes so special. You carry the hopes of humanity into the realm of the eternal. Monsters never die. They are reborn from the chaos and barbarism that is always bubbling underneath civilization, the very stuff that makes Kronos stronger. They must be defeated again and again, kept at bay. Heroes embody that struggle. You fight the battles humanity must win, every generation, in order to stay human.
