Loved it! Couldn't stop listening to it. I'm excited for the next one. ( )

Read all my reviews on http://urlphantomhive.booklikes.com

Halfway through the series and it's starting to get a bit repetitive, both the books and my reviews, I'm afraid.

Because I still really liked the mythology, which for me really is the strongest point of the series. I never particularly likes Percy or Annabeth, I mean they are nice enough but the teaming up of the smart girl and the not so smart but good boy who's going to save the world is something I've seen a bit too many times before. Therefore, neither of them really stood out. The mythology, however, did. (And I know this is not the only series using a lot of Greek mythology, but it's very cleverly done, positioning it in modern America. The only thing that could have made it better would have been to set the story in Europe).

Artemis and her Hunters were introduced in this book, and made the story for me. Also, the prophecy is getting more complicated still. I did start to get the feeling when reading this that the story follows the same structure every time (both in and between the books). While not my favourite, I still really enjoyed reading it. ( )

I enjoyed this chapter of Percy Jackson's journey just as much as the first two. The introduction of Artemis and the hunters was cool. I like meeting new characters. It was interesting to see how Percy related to some of the newer characters in the series. Parts made me laugh (think the Hoover Dam conversation!) and parts made me cry (no spoilers in my review, so we won't go there) I think the ending was good, but of course leaves me hanging and I want more. Eager to get on to book 4! ( )

So it's funny, but it's also very exciting, with the gods behaving in that disgraceful and unpredictable way that gods do. Then there are the really bad guys. If you're familiar with these ancient characters, you'll be impressed by how Riordan handles them. If they're new to you, it's a gripping introduction.
 
Readers who are familiar with ancient mythology will enjoy Riordan's tongue-in-cheek approach; those who aren't just might be tempted to go to the original sources to learn more.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0141321261, Paperback)

This is the third book in the most exciting commercial fantasy adventure series since "Artemis Fowl". Now in paperback with a thrilling new cover look. It's the last Friday before the winter holidays but Percy Jackson isn't at school: he's battling the fearsome Manticore (half human, half lion), which in itself isn't ideal...but with Annabeth missing and the goddess of the hunt held captive, things get a whole lot more serious...Greek mythology relocated to modern-day America. Action-packed, funny, accessible writing for both boys and girls aged 10 and above. This title is perfect for fans of "Harry Potter" and "Artemis Fowl".
