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!

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.
