Book Review: Rick Riordan’s The Sea of Monsters

Posted December 6, 2010 by Kathy Davie in Book Reviews, Middle-Grade

This book came from the library, and I will never give you less than an honest review, no matter its source. I do provide informational and purchase links to make it more convenient for you to access the book. I also receive a percentage of the sale if you use one of my links to buy it. And that's not enough money to be less than truthful *grin*.

My Take

This is such a funny, familial look at the Greek gods through the eyes of a contemporary half-human/half-god child of Poseidon. For some reason, the major gods have a “down” on Percy and most of the other kids join the gods in giving him grief.

In this adventure, Percy, Annabel, and Tyson escape Camp Half Blood on their own forbidden quest to save Grover from marriage to a Cyclops.

Naturally, the adventures include encounters with sea creatures, the enemy side, sorceresses, and centaurs.
