the first book lighting thief. I first thought it was going to be dull, but as I read it
it was more interesting and In finished it, wishing for more. The second one I just got
is explaining who is who from the first book and some knew are mentioned.
It holds you attention and for young or old to enjoy, if you like stories of mythology.
It's well written and there's other ones following this one. There are five books in all with
this. If you are looking for adventure in a book this may be what you're wanting. I can't wait
for the other ones. (JV).
As an adult, these are not the highest quality graphic novels we have ever seen - in terms of style, design, storytelling and flow across the pages, this series is not the best.
But I'm not the primary target for the book.
Five star from kids, three stars from parents.
I am a 11 year old girl and I love this . Please try this . You won't know anything by reading just one chapter , at least read the first two or three .
Thank you Rick Riordan !
Sorry guys would not recommend the Graphic novels they were sub par.
The story opens with Percy having a decent year at school, but as summer approaches, Percy finds himself befriending Tyson, an odd teenager to say the least. After Percy is attacked at school, he learns that Tyson is a cyclops and Camp Half Blood is under siege. Thalia, the tree that guards the camp is dying. Chiron is blamed and banished. Percy makes it back to the camp where he discovers the golden fleece can save the camp, but unfortunately, Percy's friend, Grover, is being held captive by the cyclops that guards the fleece. Percy demands to go on a quest. Can he recover the golden fleece in time to save the camp?
Riodan's writing is crisp and easy to read. The plot flows well. Riodan uses a good economy of words to paint vivid pictures without lingering. The dialogue adds a nice authenticity to the story.
What I enjoyed about the story was how Riodan has made the Greek myths and heroes appealing to today's younger audience. Percy and his friends have incredible powers, yet they move easily within the modern world. Heck, even Hermes has updated his looks with a jogging suit.
The most rewarding part was the characterization. Percy shows a burgeoning maturity as he comes to care and protect Tyson. Tyson's loyalty is admirable and Annabeth, as well as Clarisse, show true strength and courage.
Riodan takes the reader on Percy's adventures through the sea of monsters and leaves them biting their nails. The ending had me on the edge of my seat, wanting more.
"Sea of Monsters" is a fine sequel to "The Lightning Thief." I highly recommend it for young readers in 4th grade on up. The story's sense of adventure will resonate with readers long after they finish.
The plot of the series continues to evolve. Reminders of previous facts are conveniently sprinkled around.
My 9 yo and I have read them together. We had very cool chats from it.
