Brilliant, enticing and hilarious!

I had my doubts about this book - the Percy Jackson series were amazing and I just couldn't imagine a similar one about a different mythology being as good, but The Red Pyramid proved all assumptions wrong. Full of sarcasm, danger, interesting real-world facts and unexpected adventures, the book is a Rick Riordan work through and through.

Loved both Carter and Sadie, and the gods were amazing (esp. Anubis :D ). Laughed at the reference about "Manhattan and its other Gods". LOL for all the verbal irony and sarcasm. And there was a fair bit of cute romance in there, too.

Can't wait to read what happens next.

A must-read for all Percy Jackson fans, as well as all those who love a book full of good sarcasm and adventures.

“Now, now," Bast said. "It's not so bad."
"Right," I said. "We're stuck in Washington, D.C. We have two days to make it to Arizona and stop a god we don't know how to stop. And if we can't, we'll never see our dad or Amos again, and the world might end."
"That's the spirit!" Bast said brightly. "Now, let's have a picnic.”

Adi (Reading in the Windowseat) Здрасти. Много е хубава! Гледах The Lightning Thief когато излезе и оттогава започнах да чета книгите на Рик Риордан и ги обожавам! E, поне Пърси Джаксън книгите, защото тях съм чела. Но тази не им отстъпва до тук. Риордан има страхотно чувство за хумор :D

I hope you have as much fun reading them as I did :)


Daphne Delacroix I absolutely LOVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVEEEDD the Percy Jackson books! But my favourite by far was the 5th one! Isn't Riordan a genius! ( No,that's not a question, Sadie, because our creator, Mr Riordan is a genius)
