I love Rick Riordan's writing style and characterization. I have always enjoyed mythology and he does a great job of bring any and all mytholgy to life in a fresh and new way. I find the characters to be engaging and to feel really real. His characters feel fresh and diverse without feeling like he makes them diverse just to have diversity. He does not belabor the point of their diversity it just is a fact of who they are and yet anyone who reads his books can feel included in representation. I love how he weaves the mythology into modern times so you feel like you are learning something as you are being entertained. ( )

I had meant to read this book for years, but my little brother was assigned to read it in his freshman English class and loved it from page one. I decided to start reading around the same time so we could have a little book club over it.

Its an okay book, but to be honest it took me a long time to get into it. I finished the book in three sittings, but they were spaced out with weeks in between.

If you're looking for a good mindless story to zip through, and you're into Greek mythology, its a fun read. ( )
