Treasure Chest Damaged but Series Great,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Percy Jackson and the Olympians Hardcover Boxed Set: Books 1 - 5 (Hardcover)
I'm 25 years old and I've never been so enthralled by a children's series in my life. The books have so much action, you won't be able to put it down. The author's decision to make it a first person narrative was a brillant idea, as you are able to get a feel for Percy's personality and get emotionally involved with what he's going through. Incorporating Greek mythology into the story is a great way to sneak in some history and teach kids. They won't even realize they're learning. Looking forward to the movie as well. I suggest everyone read the books!!!!
P.S.- Be careful with Amazon. I've never had a problem with my orders from them, but they sent me the chest and it was all ripped up and severely damaged. But you can't beat the price. You're practically paying for 2 books and receiving 5. So I might just keep the books and get rid of the box. Damn shame, because it's a collectible. Beware. I'm not the only one who this has happened to.

Hi, if an item arrives damaged, Amazon should be able to replace it if you return it using their return process.

I can't imagine why 2 people marked Jean's comment as unhelpful as amazon.com indeed will fix such problems. In fact, I doubt there is any better merchant for guaranteeing the products they sell. I can see why D Reboso was disappointed to receive a damaged set but i take issue with a negative review when no action was taken to correct the problem. Finally, this is the place to review BOOKS, not amazon.com's shipping policies or lack thereof.

Everything B. Smawley and Jean P. Martin say about amazon.com is accurate. Any merchant who has such huge inventories is bound to have problems; amazon.com is among the best at fixing those problems. That's why I continue to shop http://amazon.com. And B. Smawley's comment that the Star Reviews "is the place to review BOOKS, not amazon.com's shipping policies or lack thereof...." likewise is entirely accurate.
