Marlene this book is so awesome:) cant wait 2 c the movie!!!!!!!!


Kendall Anne Eh, the movie is OK, but not nearly as good as the book!


Marlene ik!!! the movie was kinda disappointing. :(


Sierra Bookworm☺️♪ movie was very disappointing, books are AWESOME!! when is the next Heroes of Olympus book gonna come out in the U.S.?


Janie The movie was terrible: key characters missing, an entire different plot, etc. The graphic novel was also a pretty big disappointment . I guess the book and series were just too good to be remade into some other type of media that could match it.

I agree. They alter so much stuff.

Your Right. The book is much better than the movie. Hope they make another movie of it.

I've never seen the movie, but the book was AMAZING! I loved it!


Sarah I'm going to get murdered for this, but I think the movie was far better than the book. The characters were more realistic (I ended up liking how they were highschoolers even though I thought it would irritate me) and there was more action.

This is coming from a visual effects geek, so please excuse me and return to your regularly scheduled nerdy complaining. :)


Kayla I was a bit disappointed with the movie and kept picking out what they changed I think if you're going to make a movie based on the book you need to be as close to the book as you can get instead of changing things just so the movie will sell.

I agree! I was totally thinking the exact same thing =).

Lisa The book is better than the movie. The movie left out carcters and main events. The book is better than the movie!

thats what makes him so special and emphasizes how powerful demigods are [especially from the big three gods]

the book WAS better than the movie. i think that the reason everyone hates the movie is because the people who made the movie basically just took the title then made a movie from it. the book and movie are just so different from eachother.
THE BOOKS R WAY BETTER!!


Peyton This is a great book! You shouls definently read it!


Ayunda I LOVE LOVE LOVE Percy!!
