The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #3)
The demigods reace to the rescue to find that Grover has made an important discovery: two new powerful half-bloods, whose parentage is unk...more
The story starts out with Percy, Annabeth, and Thalia trying to help Grover to sneak out two half-bloods from a private military style school. Things get immediately messy and they stumble upon yet another problem, or more like a crisis. In the process of a battle Annabeth is stolen away. Something called The General is out again wrecking havoc and as you can already tell Luke has a hand in all this. This...more
I've not been "real complimentary' of these books up to this point, I gave each 3 stars...said they were what I'd call, "not bad". I dropped this one to 2 stars...it's getting to "bad".
First, I must say apologetically that the writing isn't all that great. I know these have sold millio...more
Artemis, The Goddess of The Hunt is M.I.A. and Annabeth, Percy’s “good friend” and fellow half-blood is missing AND in grave danger. Two new undetermined and powerful half-bloods, Bianca and Nico di Angelo have made an appearance. Luke and his dastardly plans of resurrecting Kronos are in full swing but now he seems to have an even more chilling ordeal set u...more
Mission: Save the goddess Artemis, Annabeth, and find a deadly creature that could possibly destroy Olympus.
The Team: Percy (obviously), Grover (wouldn't have it any other way), Thalia (inevitable), and two huntresses called Zoe and Bianca.
It's just as funny as the other two and still full of action. The hints in this book are a bit more subtle...more
When the goddess Artemis goes missing, she is believed to have been kidnapped. And now it's up to Percy and his friends to find out what happened. Who is powerful enough to kidnap a goddess? They must find Artemis before the winter solstice, when her influence on the Olympian Council could swing an important vote on the war with the titans. Not only that, but first Percy will have to solve the mystery of a rare monster...more
Olympus is above the Empire State Building, Hades' Castle is under Hollywood, Sea of Monsters is the Bermuda Triangle, How about the Mount Othrys? Mount Othrys was the base of the Titans during the ten year war with the Olympian Gods. It is located in Mt Tamalpais, San Francisco, where you can see Atlas carrying the heaven.
Percy Jackson is back with Annabeth Chase, Grover Underwood and a new...more
OMG the Titan Kronos is rising! Yes, that is a bad thing... since he's practically trying to take over the world and what not. Okay, maybe I was exagerating a bit. But isnt that just as bad as overthrowing Zeus and the rest of the gods and replacing them with a whole bunch of demigods (including Luke the evil, lol) and having Kronos as the leader? Well it is, since Olympus moves around and happens to be over New York.
After an encoun...more
This was a delightfully funny installment to Ri...more
While I admit that I'm not as much a fan of the Percy books as many, I did find myself pretty wrapped up in the story (especially towards the end) and a little sorry when it was over. Riordan did keep me guessing, and I was surprised at a few of the outcomes of t...more
The individuality of the characters in this series is wonderful. Not only are they quirky, fun, and endearing, but they're all highly motivated by their personal story lines. Very realistic. All too often in the world of literature, characters, once o...more
Unfortunately, this book is a carbon copy of the last book, The Sea of Monsters, which is essentially a carbon copy of the first book,The Lightning Thief, and perhaps that is the problem. Like the first two books, I read this aloud to my kids. We took a small break from reading (about a week) and upon resuming the story, I kept confusing this bo...more
The target audience should love all the action, which is too much for my taste, but each time I thought I might give up for that reason, an extremely clever use of a Greek myth appeared and my interest rallied. The story also picked up considerably by its middle, becoming more complex as it went on. I especially lik...more
Percy finds himself caught up in another adventure to save the day. Along with some old and new characters, they are continually challenged by enemies that want to see them fail. The tension between some of the main characters is also ano...more
The pace is still as fast as before. So a lot of action, no getting bored and just the right amount of humour. I find the writing is improving a bit as the series moves forward. I found myself laughing along at the jokes instead of rolling my eyes. It was still a bit predictable with easily...more
MIGHT CONTAIN SPOILERS! (I guess)
Me: Woo-hoo! We both are in eighth grade! High five! *Raises hand*
Percy: Oh yeah! *High fives!*
I don't know if there's just "too much of the same" as the series progresses, but I just didn't enjoy this book as much as the first two.
The first book did a good job of not making Percy Jackson too Harry Potter-esque, especially by having Percy understand the importance of keeping Chiron apprised of all relevant dreams and information. The second book started to falter in this regard, and now the third book has Percy Jackson inexplicably and annoyingl...more
When I started the third installment of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Titan’s Curse – I really didn’t want to like it. I read and reviewed the first two and you may remember that I was hung up over the similarities to the Harry Potter series. The Characters, the situations, even the games that they play (I still enjoyed the Quidditch matches of HP over Capture the Flag and/or Chariot Races of PJ). But then I was talking to another father about the...more

I remember all the adventures of the son of the Sea God, Percy Jackson.
Okay, let me make this clear: I would never, as long as I live, get tired of the Percy Jackson sereis. Howeve...more

Grover cracked a smile. "The dam snack bar?"
Zoe blinked. "Yes. What is funny?"
"Nothing," Grover said, trying to keep a straight face. "I could use some dam french fries."
Even Thalia smiled at that. "And I need to use the dam restroom."
I started cracking up, and Thalia and Grover joined in, while Zoe just looked at me. "I do not understand."
"I want to use the dam water fountain," Grover said.
"And..." Thalia tried to catch her breath. "I want to buy a dam t-shirt.”
