it was ok

I feel like this book killed my brain cells.
I realise it may have been written for 4 year olds but still.

This book was just so... EMPTY. Alot of "somehow I knew", "suddenly it just happened" and "supriSinglys". Like tell the story properly..
Learn things where I can see it. Don't just have super super intuition it boring.

And also.. All the chapter names were a summary of the chapter. Why... Why... Chapter 123 would have worked for me.

All the missions Percy went on reminded me very much of a video game.. Every step of the way there was some pathetic obstacle, he pressed "up, down, up, up, triangle, square, circle, up, r2" and it was over. So predictable and so meh..

I'm reading the second one because im determined to get through.. I have hopes it will improve.
