Summary

Brought to you by Puffin.  

Coming soon to Disney+! 

Half boy. Half God. ALL Hero.

Normally when you turn 16 you get a really cool present.

But, being sixteen and the son of Poseidon can never be that simple. So instead, I get a prophecy that says the fate of the entire world on my shoulders. Great.

On top of that, Kronos, Lord of the Titans, is attacking New York City and the dreaded monster Typhon is heading our way. So, it's me and forty of my demi-god friends versus untold evil.

Happy birthday to me!

  • WHAT TO EXPECT FROM PERCY JACKSON:

Great story, not a great narrator

The narrator is ok but he makes super weird choices for some of the voices and he cannot do any accents besides American! Also between the books he forgets what voice he did for certain characters and it changes.

Good end to the sarga

What made the experience of listening to Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian the most enjoyable?

By listening to the words you can close your eye and imaging all the mystical creatures are appearing around you rather than having to focus on the word yourself.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Grover because of his focus on the importance of protecting nature for the benefit of everyone.

What does Jesse Bernstein bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

By listening to the words you can close your eye and imaging all the mystical creatures are appearing around you rather than having to focus on the word yourself.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really although I do feel that it drew the overall story to a good end for all the main characters.

The Revenge of the Gods

A fantastic ending to a great series of books. Annabeth and our hero triumphs again and we enjoy both a good ending and the journey throughut the story.

The reading is well paced and does justice to the book, although not spectacular.

A great listen to be shared with your youngsters,.

Percy Jackson & The Last Olympian

At last a teen book that gets children interested in Greek mythology! My kids all love this series and don't realise how much they are learning about the Greek gods whilst listening to a good story. Percy Jackson carries on his unusual life as a demi-god saving the day again in a story that races along keeping you on the edge of your seat right up until the final moments. It kept us all gripped during a long car journey and even my husband enjoyed it!

Applies to the whole 5 book series…

These stories are fantastic, engaging, entertaining. I have a love/hate relationship with the narrator however. I like his voice, I think it’s perfect for many of the characters. Unfortunately sometimes he seems to put emphasis in the wrong places and his accents are appalling! I realise there are a lot of characters to distinguish between, so it would be very difficult if he did them all American, but honestly sometimes it’s painful to listen to, not sure if they’re supposed to be British, Australian, South African?

Absoloutely awsome

I've been reading the books since they came out but seeing as I was always reading I never really laughed. When I discivered Audible I went straight to the PJ books. Bit sad for the series to be over but there's still the HOO books. Thanks if you read.

Dissapointing conclusion

The title best summarizes my thoughts.

I am not saying its a bad book or series by any means. However i also think that while none of the questions were left unanswered it could have been much better.

I would still reccomend the series to any fans of fantasy or greek mythology or both. In those aspects it was amazing. Story wise though it was not as good as it could have been.
