Mythology gets real at Camp Hercules . . .

The last thing Logan wants to do with his entire summer is go to some fake mythology-themed camp, but that's exactly what he's stuck doing. When he gets there, it's even worse than he imagined. Each bunk has to re-enact one of the twelve labors of Hercules, sword fighting and all. The whole thing is ridiculous . . . at least he th

It's a rip off. Any Percy Jackson fan who can't see that is a fake fan.

Real Rating: 2.75/5 Stars

Look it's not that bad.....but let's just say.....plot and characters isn't the book's strong suit

edit: I decided to change my rating of this book to 2.5 because after filming my review, I realized I didn't like it that much besides the okay writing style

The moment you say that you like GREEK mythology but the name of the camp is Hercules who is a roman God
Heracles is Greek and Hercules Is Roman
For me it looks to much like Percy Jackson so for me is this a no
But hey of you like a rip off of a good book i say read it

I'm not gonna waste much more energy on this trainwreck of a book.

The characters in this book are all horrible in their own way. Logan is a massive jerk through the entire book. So self centered, hypocritical and just flat out dumb as hell. Harper is so unforgettable, I'm not even joking when I say I forgot her name half the time. Daniel is just a big coward with really nothing to offer except some bad mythological facts and dumb facial expressions.

Can't wait to never have to think about Logan

I thought this book was pretty good overall. It was a little hard to get into, but once you get into the story you can’t put it down. Their are several twists, but I half expected most of them. If you enjoyed Percy Jackson this is right down your ally. The main character, Logan, reminds me of Percy in several ways. He’s thrown into a Greek Mythology filled world , his best friend, Daniel, knows a ton about Greek Mythology, and his other best friend, Harper, is smart, witty, and intelligent. Over ...more

It's a ripoff!!! Any true fan would notice this. And Hercules is a ROMAN hero, the greek version is Heracles. If your going to write a trash ripoff, at least get your mythology right!!

I'm sorry, but this is just a Percy Jackson ripoff. The one question I had was is this a Greek or Roman camp? It says Greek mythology, but the camp is called Camp Hercules. Like what? If you're gonna do a Greek Mythology book, get the right mythology. Hercules is Roman, NOT Greek.

If you liked the Percy Jackson series, you will like this book. It has many similar things, monsters, a camp, and demigods, but also has some characteristics of its own

Very similar to the early Percy Jackson books, but perhaps a slightly earlier reading level. 2.75 stars.

Good adventur e

This a very good adventure novel. It didn't need the Percy Jackson or Harry potter references and can stand on its own
