I love this story. The adventure, the twists, the tricks. I adore Tyson. I couldn't wait to get to this book because of Tyson. The Party Ponies and the budding, albiet begrudging, frienship between Percy and Clarisse. Percy grew a lot in this book. And now Thalia's back. ( )

The kids and I read this on our kindles -- me aloud and them following along. I liked this book better than the first. I enjoyed how well the book tied into the Odyssey both in plot points and style. I had told the girls the story of Odysseus and the cyclops so they thought that tie in was hilarious. ( )

I read the last four of this series in pretty rapid sucession of around three days. I mostly remember that they sort of blurred together. They weren't the most fantastic of children's literature, but I had a lot of fun trying to predict Olympian references and guest appearances before the books would tell you who it was. ( )

It's hard not love mythology, with creatures like cyclops and medusa wandering around. Every good adventure needs really great villains, and the Percy Jackson series is full of them, thanks to the many mythological monsters available in a world where the Greek myths are real. Whether you're a fan of mythology, or a fan of adventure stories, this series is perfect because it has everything. It's even pretty funny sometimes. ( )

the best storyteller in the family
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.

Book description
Percy Jackson's seventh-grade year has been surprisingly quiet. Not a single monster has set foot on his New York prep-school campus. But when an innocent game of dodgeball among Percy and his classmates turns into a death match against an ugly gang of cannibal giants, things get . . . well, ugly. And the unexpected arrival of Percy's friend Annabeth brings more bad news: the magical borders that protect Camp Half-Blood have been poisoned by a mysterious enemy, and unless a cure is found, the only safe haven for demigods will be destroyed.

In this fresh, funny, and hugely anticipated follow up to The Lightning Thief, Percy and his friends must journey into the Sea of Monsters to save their beloved camp. But first, Percy will discover a stunning new secret about his family -- one that makes him question whether being claimed as Poseidon's son is an honor or simply a cruel joke.
