BOOK REVIEW: Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan

Genre: Middle Grade / Mythology

Page Count: 265 pages

Publication Date: April 2006


Goodreads summary:


It’s not easy being a half-blood these days. Even a simple game of dodgeball becomes a death match against an ugly gang of cannibal giants – and that was only the beginning.

Now Camp Half-Blood is under attack and, unless I can get my hands of the Golden Fleece, the whole camp will be invaded by monsters. Big ones…


My thoughts: percy jackson 2

Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters, the second book in the PJ and the Olympians series, is just as great as its predecessor (ooh, fancy word!).

I love Percy as a narrator. The way he sees the world is so unique and fun! Annabeth was as fierce as ever. I love her so much! And Grover… Hahaha! What has Grover got himself into this time?!

In this book we get to meet a new character (not just one, but he’s just so special, he deserves an honourable mention) Tyson! He’s so adorable and loyal to his friends. I hope we get to see more of Tyson in the rest of the series!

There have been some changes to Camp Half-Blood this year. Some good, others not so much. The chariot races added an extra bit of a historical feeling to the story, which is always great.

For a middle grade book, this series is seriously impressive! The amount of Greek mythology you get to learn just by reading this is mind-boggling! I’m definitely carrying on with this series!4

    After what seems like decades, I finally gave this series a chance. My brother and sister had been telling me for FOREVER to give it a shot, and it’s now one of my absolute favorites. I’m so glad to see you’re enjoying it as well. Love your review 🙂
