The Sea of Monsters- Rick Riordan

11 Aug

More adventure for the young heroes

In the second installment of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series, Percy is at a new school, again. Percy makes a new friend with Tyson, a giant by normal standards, but in the world on myth it turns out Tyson is not just a giant, but also a Cyclops.

When Percy learns that there is trouble at Camp Half-Blood, he goes there with Tyson. Someone has poisoned the tree that stands above Half-Blood Hill and provides a magical barrier and protection to the camp. With mythological monsters on the loose and Percy’s best friend Grover kidnapped on an island the Camp appears destined to be destroyed; however, Grover sends Percy a message providing a key to saving himself and Camp Half-Blood. So again Percy and Annabeth undergo a quest, this time with Tyson tagging along.

Once again, Riordan manages to weave a fun tale of mythology and adventure, into the modern day world. Drawing on the myth of the Golden Fleece, and Homers epic adventures, the heroes head to the Sea of Monsters, a deadly isle, known currently as the Bermuda Triangle.

    While I do not think it is a bad book, I think it is the least intersting of the Percy Jackson and the Olympain books

    Really? I actually enjoyed the play on Homer in this book, and found that it made it rather enjoyable and more entertaining than the third book.

    Thank you. Yes, my tastes are sporadic. But that is what reading is all about, the adventure into the unknown.
