BOOK REVIEW: Percy Jackson and the Titan’s Curse

Percy Jackson and the Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan

Genre: Middle grade / Mythology

Page Count: 294 pages

Publication Date: May 2007

 

Goodreads summary:

IT’S NOT EVERYDAY YOU FIND YOURSELF IN COMBAT WITH A HALF-LION, HALF-HUMAN.

But when you’re the son of a Greek god, it happens. And now my friend Annabeth is missing, a goddess is in chains and only five half-blood heroes can join the quest to defeat the doomsday monster.

Oh, and guess what? The Oracle has predicted that not all of us will survive…

My thoughts:

I’m not sure how to review this book, to be honest. Percy Jackson 3

I’m still not sure if this book put me in a reading slump or if the reading slump took over my life because I read more than I usually do last month…

I mean, it took me 10 days to read these 294 pages… 10 DAYS!

It’s not a bad book, I just couldn’t get into it. The story wasn’t as exciting as the first 2 books in the series. So far, my favourite one was Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief!

I’m fully aware I’m not the target audience for this series, but still… After reading three books which all follow the same structure, with no character development, and a series of short fighting scenes (in which we all know Percy will come out alive and well) I’m beginning to get a bit bored…

I know it’s an unpopular opinion, but I think 3 stars is a fair rating for Percy Jackson and the Titan’s Curse…  or maybe I just need a break from this series.
