Fantastic! What a ride! Nice character development, non-stop action, entertaining dialogue, exciting twists and turns. I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series. ( )

Lots of fun. An easy read, but totally engrossing. Riordan does a good job of keeping his mythology straight and making the characters believable at the same time. ( )

In the second book, Percy learns that a poison has infiltrated the camp at Half-Blood Hill, infesting its iconic pine tree and melting the camp’s magical borders. A quest for the Golden Fleece will save the camp. Percy dreams that his friend and satyr Grover, who is on a quest to find Pan, has found the fleece and is imprisoned by Polyphemus, one of the meanest cyclops. Percy sets off with fellow camper Annabeth and his cyclop friend (and half-brother), the childlike but super strong Tyson.

Really enjoyed listening to this instead of re-reading it. ( )

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

First words
My nightmare started like this.
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.
