The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: Book 2)

Sea of MonstersGreat book.  I absolutely loved it.  It was a great and fun read, I mean I loved it.  There was so much character growth.  Percy developed a lot, he of course is still a kid, but the narration that goes into his character is so realistic.  If I were in his position I would probably talk to myself in my head a lot to deal with all the complications of life.  It’s simply amazing.  Annabeth has changed a bit, but not by much, still she’s not some obnoxious character who has no depth.  There is a bit of confusion and self-doubt that fills her, that makes her real.  It’s a flawed human quality.  Every character has their flawed characteristics which only make them real, more relatable to reader.   This is such a great series because of that.  In fact I think I like book 2 more than book 1 (and yes I read book 1 – don’t watch the movie if you can help it – it’s a horrible substitute).

Another thing I like is how Percy has both the worst and best luck.  I mean it gives him the qualities of a hero, a true hero, not some Mary Sue hero.

Rick Riordan is great at adapting and adjusting the Greek mythos into modern literature.  5/5 ‘s and an “A”.
