I liked it better than The Lightning Thief, but I'm still baffled as to what my boys find so captivating about this series. ( )

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

I think i felt about the same way about this one as i did the last one. I enjoyed it, but i don't think i want to read it again.

"Tyson caught his breath. 'Fish ponies!'" I love this kid. He's adorable.

Also, i'm so much more confused about the Hercules/Heracles thing now! The dude's called by both names in this book! WHY?? Is there a reason for this or is Riordan just doing it to annoy me?

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.
