Finished re-reading this––and yup, it's still amazing. It's been five years since I first read it, and that ending still makes me tear up. GAHHHHH. <3 I will write a longer review at some point.

I'll put my old review under a spoiler because it was very spoilery (and oh my gosh I was ... not the most eloquent back then, to put it lightly). :P

For once, I didn't look back.”

No. It comes out in May. I CAN'T WAITTTT!!!

Good? "Good" would be an understatement! Okay, so I admit: I'm a little old to be reading the series. But if these books had existed when I was ten years old, they would have been, like, the books of my childhood. I love them. They're clever, thought-out, funny ... They have great characters, an exciting plot, plus I love how all the greek mythology is tied in. Favorite book series, hands down. :)

Haha. I read the fourth one the day after it came out. I got up at 5 AM to read it. And then I finished and I'm like "NOOO I HAVE TO WAIT AN ENTIRE YEAR FOR THE NEXT ONE!!!"

omg i'm like DYING. AAGGGGHHH

Brigid *Flying Kick-a-pow!* oops i meant "too old". lol


Brigid *Flying Kick-a-pow!* wait, no i wrote "too old". YOU mean "too old". ^_^ heehee


Sella Malin Oops, yeah. I meant to say, you're not TOO OLD to read them!! lol


Brigid *Flying Kick-a-pow!* OMG IF ANY OF U GUYZ HAVEN'T READ IT YET, READ IT NOWWWWW!!! IT WAS SO FREAKING GOOD! ^_^


Clare D' Lune AK! ok so I finally got to read it! Well actually listen to it on CD which was extremly lame, but for some reason our library gets the CDS in before the books, and I did NOT want to wait >.


Laina i LOVED it! I've read it twice now... I read it when it came out, and then I decided to reread the whole series. So, so, so good. Words tend to fall short.


Brigid *Flying Kick-a-pow!* Gah, I knoww! It was amazing :D


Sella Malin GAAH THIS BOOK WAS SOO AMAZING!!! Brigid I agree, I was grinning when Percabeth happened. heehee. XD

WHATEVS. GO PERCABETH!"

Megan [I'm okay, I'm alright] I ABSOLUTELY COMPLETELY 100% AGREE!!!! oh my gosh!!!! xD


Megan [I'm okay, I'm alright] Oh and WHY have I not read these until now? I'm crazy!


Brigid *Flying Kick-a-pow!* Awesome! Glad you liked them as much as I did :D


message 23: by Ashley (new) - added it

Ashley Grimm Percabeth all the way!


Brigid *Flying Kick-a-pow!* ... Also, wow ... this review is really bad. And the comments ... *headsmack*


Megan [I'm okay, I'm alright] Haha I love/hate looking back at my old reviews and comment and such... Sigh.


Becca Really, its not that bad. You were just a little worked up/excited/sad/dissapointed/every other emotion.


Thebubbles It's okay, I cried too


Sophie Did you cry at all? Who's your favorite character? Mine is Luke. Go Percabeth!!!!


message 30: by kat (new) - rated it 5 stars

kat My only thought after finishing the book: PercabethPercabethPercabethPercabeth!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!


Brigid *Flying Kick-a-pow!* @Sophie - Oops I realize your comment is from a really long time ago but ... Hmmm it's been a long time since I read this but I don't remember crying while I read it. I don't usually cry while reading; I do get very emotional, but I don't often shed tears. As for a favorite character, that's a tough one ... I don't think I could choose between Percy and Annabeth for my favorite. I love them both a lot! And yes Luke is awesome as well. :)

@kat - YESSSS me too. I remember sitting in my study hall and getting to the ending and just being like "AAAHHHH!" on the inside. I wanted to just scream my head off and dance around the room but obviously I couldn't do that, haha. It's been five years and I'm still not over it. I love that ending. ;) Recently I re-read the first book and I'm planning to read them all again!


Taryn Like the comment about braiding the plant's hair like a My Little Pony :) LOL!


Taryn I meant Pony's hair not plant's....sorry..autocorrect is stupid!

Wait ... what? I still don't know what you're referring to. :P


Taryn The book was talking about how Blackjack would probably have his hair braided like a My Little Pony then be back at the Princess Andromeda ship again. page 11


Taryn That Blackjack would rather have his hair braided like a MLP then be back at the Princess Andromeda


Brigid *Flying Kick-a-pow!* Ohhh okay. I'd forgotten that detail ... I haven't read this book in like five years. :P But that is funny, haha.


Taryn ik..right? I can't imagine Blackjack like that...


Taryn page 90! :)


Brigid *Flying Kick-a-pow!* Haha ok, I'll look out for it next time I read it.


Taryn page 140! It's so great!!!!!


Taryn It's a quick read


Book Girl Ok everyone one calm down...NO I WOULD RATHER GO CRAZY!! (Its way more fun anyway)


Book Girl Oh...and Kat... where in the world did you find that profile pic!!!!!!???????!!!!!!! :D
