Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan
I just wanna dive into the messed up relationships the Greek Gods seems to have. Seriously everyone is sleeping with someone or something thing.
So Percy Jackson is the Son of Poseidon, who is the God of the Sea. Poseidon's brothers are Zeus and Hades.
Zeus has many kids and well, there are so many Gods around it is frustrating to keep track of who belongs to who. So I made up a mini chart using Wikipedia of course... (I know lame, but it was fun!)I do like however, the Greek spelling or the look of the greek spelling of the names
just a couple of my favorites!
It feels like the books keep getting shorter and my other issue, was in the first book, Percy started off at the age of 12. In this book he is 14! But he doesn't act or talk any differently than he did at 12. It's like he hasn't matured at all. Everyone around him has though. Grover for example is around 30 now and is doing things on his own. Even Annabeth has been doing adult things. Seriously his maturity level kinda annoys.
I like some of the new characters brought into this book. But not all of them. It's frustrating. The author is trying to hide something but it feels like a pointless point is being hidden, if that makes sense. I am sure I could figure it out if I wanted to, but I just don't have the effort.
Don't get me wrong the story is still fabulous. I stayed up super late to read this book, but allot of things just seemed weird, especially for the characters age. By that's just my thoughts.
