Publisher's Summary

The fourth book in the best-selling Heroes of Olympus series - set in the explosive world of Percy Jackson - now available in this unabridged audio download.

The stakes have never been higher. If Percy Jackson and Annabeth fail in their quest, there'll be hell on Earth. Literally. Wandering the deadly realm of Tartarus, every step leads them further into danger. And, if by some miracle they do make it to the Doors of Death, there's a legion of bloodthirsty monsters waiting for them.

Meanwhile, Hazel and the crew of the Argo II have a choice: to stop a war or save their friends. Whichever road they take one thing is certain - in the Underworld, evil is inescapable.

    "Not just for kids"
    Where does The House of Hades rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty high up. Its well read and interesting. I must be hooked I have the whole set so far.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The House of Hades?

    Frank fighting a huge bunch of monsters on a bridge in Venice. He's usually a very quiet character and he suddenly grew (literally as it turned out).


    Which character – as performed by Nick Chamian – was your favourite?

    Bob the giant. He is such a sweetie.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Through Hell and back?


    Any additional comments?

    I am not a kid. I have a classics degree. I just enjoy these books, they tackle the myths in an engaging way. Go Romans and Greeks!

    Story
    "the worst narrator I have heard, on audible."

    story was pretty good, though not has good has the others in the series & definitely not has good has the percy Jackson series.
    the reader was terrible. it sounded slow and mostly in one tone, in a way it reminded me of my Kindle touch reading aloud (just lest robotic), I speeded it up, but still didn't sound brilliant, slightly better if listening on a device with better sound quality, it's even worst if using cheap not very good headphones or speakers.
    sometimes I had trouble really following the story, I don't know if that was due to the poor narrator, the story or if it was just that sometimes I was listening while doing something else, though it could of been a mixture of all three.

    "Great story, terrible narrator"
    Would you be willing to try another one of Nick Chamian’s performances?

    No, god no.
    I haven't liked any of the narrators of these books as they all have very nasal voices however this guy almost caused me to return the book. He places emphasis on seemingly random words in sentances it sounds like a 12 year old drama student trying to be dramatic. I'd read the book rather than buy this.

    "Bad narrator"

    The narrator of this book is very bad. The narrator o r of percy Jackson was great. The narrator of the previous three books was a bit worse. This guy makes me cringe

    "accent?"

    the accent and pronunciation of some words changed from the last book, making it strange to listen to one after another, but its okay once you get used to it, its still a great book

    "Great story let down by change in narrator "

    Story - Ooo this series just keeps getting better with each book! I loved seeing all the characters continue to work together and growing both as individuals and as a team. As I don't want to spoil anything for others all I can say is that this book is a roller-coaster ride full of emotion, adventure and tension and can tell it's building towards the end of the story (aka: the next/last book). Part of me can't wait to read it yet another part of me doesn't want it to end.

    Narration - I wouldn't listen to anything else narrated by this narrator after I've finished this series. Their pronounciation was off on a few very simple words. Words that the previous narrator had no problem with. Also found it difficult to tell one character from the other with this narrator. Hope they're better in the next book...

    "Good story, narrating was too monotonous"

    It was hard to stick to end. Even if the narrator did convey the characters, I miss Jessie Berenstein's narration of the series.

    "Great book"

    As always, i love Ricks books, but i feel the narrator could have done a better job. The book itself is really good, it holds your attention the whole time. I still think they should get a bunch of people and have them all read for one character (percy, annabeth, piper.....)

    "This is a bad recording."
    What would have made The House of Hades better?

    The narration is very hard to listen to. The only reason we have kept it is that my dyslexic son loves the story and wants to listen but if it was me I would have returned it. It is painful to listen to.


    What didn’t you like about Nick Chamian’s performance?

    It seems like he is talking too close to the microphone.

    The story is a perfect continuation to Mark of Athena. This is enough for me to rate the book as good.

    Everithing is perfect. The way Rick Riordan distributes the story, without forgetting the two groups of heroes


    Have you listened to any of Nick Chamian’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I enjoyed as Always.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes. there is very funny moments.


    Any additional comments?

    Rick RIordan creats a wonderful series. Worth listening to the story and follow the adventures of these heroes
