3551 Um, I read some article where the director was quoted, and he seemed really eager to make a sequel. He was like "Oh yeah I want to start the sequel right away!" O_O guaaah I am horrified. lol.

3551 I love Sarah Dessen. I can't think of anything really objectionable about her books … They involve some dark topics occasionally but they're not "dirty" or anything.

3551 I love the cover! It's so pretty!

3551 Rick Riordan! Definitely. I am re-reading the Percy Jackson books right now. They are amazing. Haha, I know they are supposed to be for slightly younger kids but hey, I'm 17 and they are my favorite books ever. :D

3551 Rachel – You have good taste! XD I also loved Shiver, Going Bovine, Hush Hush, Leviathan, Wintergirls, Fire, and The Ask and the Answer. btw, I'm always excited when I find someone else who reads the Chaos Walking books. I only know like two other people who've read them, lol. :D

3551 I've read the first two books but not the third yet. I don't think they're amazing, but they're enjoyable. I like the whole alternate version of Wonderland; it's a very cool idea.

The Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan (Ahh I love these books ^_^)

If a book looks good but the blurb says something about a male protagonist I become instantly disinter..."

I agree with Unwind, Beastly, Little Brother … love all those books. :]

Also Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan, and the Chaos Walking books by Patrick Ness – both series with great narration by male protagonists.

3551 Yeah, none of the characters even looked like they were supposed to, really. Although I admit … Logan Lerman was, ah, nice to look at. Teehee. *blushes* He wasn't a great actor, but he was mildly Percy-like at least. That is, he was closer to the character than most of the other people cast. I thought Luke and Chiron and Ms. Dodds were cast pretty well too … That was about it. XD

3551 I like you, too. ;) haha that is true!

Ah, I know! I totally wish I could meet Rick Riordan. That would be like soooo amazing. I would be like "Dude, you changed my life." lol! Gah, I know. Stupid director. I was like "Why did they forget to give Annabeth a brain and a personality?" Everything about her was wrong. Very disappointing …

3551 Nor could I. They are amazingness. <3

3551 They don't come in until the second book … They take over the Hermes cabin after Luke, ah, "leaves". XD heehee

I agree about Medusa. Uma was very creepy. It wasn't like the book, but that part was cool.

3551 Ahh I can't really decide whether I liked it. As a movie, disregarding the book, it was okay. I just couldn't help but compare. And like you said, they didn't explain much in the movie.

Yeah, I didn't like the sword either. It looked kind of stupid. Also, they forgot to mention the whole thing about how when he loses it it's supposed to reappear again … And he got it too early in the movie. Gaaah.

Same here. My expectations were really high … The books are like my favorite ever, and I thought it had so much potential. >:(

I know! I was so mad that there was no Ares or Clarisse or Mr. D in the movie. And yeah, the camp wasn't how I pictured it. It was just all the fighting, none of the other stuff.

3551 haha, same here O_o

That's what I was hoping, too – that at least if they were going to leave some things out, they could at least keep that sort of Percy Jackson humor in it or something. But the humor wasn't funny, which was very disappointing considering the books are laugh-out-loud hilarious. And then of course they had to leave out so many important plot lines and characters, and they didn't explain things well either. I mean, they didn't even mention the Mist. How did no one notice when like half of NYC exploded and water came gushing out of all the buildings? Gah.

3551 That is not weird, I would marry them too. Don't worry. lol :D Ahhh I was just re-reading Sea of Monsters. These books are pure brilliance. ;)

3551 yeah … *sigh*

3551 I saw the movie and I was disappointed :( I'm a HUGE fan of the books, and I was mad that they cut out a lot of important characters and, like, entirely changed the plot. It was enjoyable, but not comparable to the books. >.<
