Item Details

Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can't seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse -- Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy's mom finds out, she knows it's time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he'll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half-Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon, a mystery unfolds and together with his friends -- one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena -- Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.

A fun adventure. Though it never felt deep or gripping, it was colorful and always entertaining the whole way through.

A great book, but a dreadful narration. The narrator does Percy fine, but the rest are a great disappointment.

All I can say about this book is that it's yet another greatpeice of work by Rick Riordan. There are many Greek legends in this book that are explained in a more modern format.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: There are some particularly intense bits, but it's fine if you don't have too much of a wild imagination!
