Personally, this was my least favourite book in the Percy Jackson series. I've been thinking about why exactly, but haven't really found a reason. Perhaps I just read it at the wrong time, or too close on the other book so I was bothered with the repetitive structure of the story.

This time focussing on the story of the Labyrinth and Ariadna's wire, once again I liked the mythology. With the addition of some new characters it never stops adding new layers to the already complex mythology in the books. The story, while following the same structure of the other books, already felt like the set-up for the grand finale that's coming in the last book.

Still enjoyable though. ( )

Grrrr... Percy Jacksonnnnn....
This story was just ok. But i still hate when GOD's drink pepsi and use mobile phones. Its just pathetic. ( )

Another great Percy Jackson story. This time a quest leads them to the Labyrinth. We meet more monsters, more gods, and see some characters return. I especially liked the part with Calypso. This series just never fails to entertain me and keep me riveted on each and every page. ( )

Though it's been a while since I've read the last book, delving into this story was just like catching up with a friend I haven't seen in years and able to pick up right where I left off.
Percy Jackson has had a confusing, difficult and yet fun time of thing since finding out that he's a demigod and his Dad just happens to be Poseidon. This year will be the most difficult yet and he will learn a lot about himself, the Gods and his friends.
When Percy and his friends learn that Luke may have found a hidden way into Camp Half Blood to destroy his fellow demigods and Kronos is on the rise, they learn that the only possible way to stop Kronos could lie in going through a Labyrinth to locate Daedalus who created the Labyrinth and could be a big help in stopping the evil Titan Kronos. Percy sets out on a quest with his friend Annabelle, half brother Tyson and best friend Grover who is seeking to find Pan and save the wild.
Things don't go quite as planned, treachery is at hand, friendships are strengthened and wills are being tested and a betrayal lies in wait that will shock nearly everyone.
I really enjoyed this book and found it hard to put down. Riordan has an amazing way of combining Greek Mythology with modern times and tossing in laughter from time to time.
I was very surprised about a few characters and twists along the way that constantly kept me guessing.
There were areas where I was laughing out loud and others in which I felt bad for a few of the characters.
Percy and many of his friends are still growing into their powers and once they do, it will be a sight to see.
Overall, I very much enjoyed this book and can't wait to get my hands on the next book to see what is in store for Percy, his friends and the Gods. ( )
