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!

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.

Such a brilliant end to the first five books

I’ve been a fan of the series since I was maybe 14 and now as an adult I still love these books. Bernstein’s narration is lots of fun (it did take me a while to get past some questionable British accents that come in from time to time) I think it’s a great narration however. I hope you enjoy this audiobook as much as I have

Great story, not great narrator.

Love this book series. Great finale that tied up nicely but left room for further development if desired. Narrator chose strange voices at times, and sometimes mixed character voices up. I think Ethan Nakamura would have been better without the narrator doing a Japanese accent (unless the narrator is Japanese in which case, it's up to him) and I really wish Persephone hadn't sounded like a chain smoking old man. Her mother got a rough deal as well. At another point Nico spontaneously aged a few years (voice wise). I can't remember whether he got back to normal again.

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. #Monsters #MythologyInspired #ChosenOne #tagsgiving #sweepstakes
