PERCY JACKSON’S GREEK HEROES

61df-z3pjxl-_sx371_bo1204203200_You can’t read this awesome book without reading its prequel, PJ’s Greek Gods. And as much as you hate it, you can’t resist to compare how much happiness and wackiness you felt reading the said book. You can’t flip another page of this Greek Heroes without comparing it to Greek Gods. And sorry guys, but I laughed more on the first book. I dunno, maybe because on Greek Gods, it’s my first time to read Percy’s thoughts. And I was amazed and was under the spell of each page. But I didn’t feel the same on this Greek Heroes. But no no no no, I didn’t hate it. I still love the sequel.

On this book, each chapter still surprised me and mesmerized me. It’s not a new thing though, but I was expecting more on each pages. But how Percy wrote about everything is still marvellous. I fell inlove with Helios and Psyche love-affair though. And I still hate those gross scenes. And I felt a lil bit boring on the last two chapters because it consumed a what? More than fifty pages for a single hero? But it was Hercules and Jason afterall, so it’s not a big deal. I get tired of Hercules quests, really. Was looking for a good ending for him, though he still got it as his pages ended. So hooooray! And Jason’s own quests were awesome too.

I was just maybe expecting a better book like how Greek Gods moved me. But still, this awesome sequel is a hit, but book one is better. So final rating would be 3.5 stars… its almost 4 stars which means it’s a must-read books for Percy’s fans. Worth reading still for a Rick Riordan and Percy and modern mythology lover! 🙂

THE LAST OLYMPIAN (BOOK REVIEW)

Book Title: The Last Olympian (Book#5) | Series Title: Percy Jackson and the Olympians | Author: Rick Riordan| EDITION: Disney Hyperion, Paperback | Status: Owned | Reading Time: May 13 – 18, 2015

It’s a very late post of book review I know, but I must write anyway. Coz this ends my journey on Percy’s world, for the meantime. And this feeling strikes me again. As always, it’s a bittersweet feeling coz at last, I finally found answers for Percy and Annabeth and the whole team. Buts it’s just sad I needed to wait longer time before getting a good time for Heroes of Olympus. 🙂

I wasn’t expecting whom does this ‘Last Olympian’ refers to. And it was she afterall, Hestia. There are lots of things to share about this book. The action scenes are amazing and intense. I can’t even find right words describing how I feel how the team battles Kronos himself. And those deaths of characters, it’s heartbreaking. Indeed it is written amazingly that I felt every emotions.

#1: ANNABETH AND RACHEL. These two brave girls really play a very good role in saving the world from Titans attack. They did their part bravely and intelligently that really helps Percy in surviving the battle. They made him stronger and tougher.

#2: ACHILLES CURSE. I didn’t see it coming. But it’s a good thing for Percy. He was invincible and indestructible and braver and tougher. And what made him do this possible is very sweet. Without her knowing, Annabeth made this possible for Percy.

#3: LUKE. You know I’ve hated him since ‘The Lightning Thief’, but I pity him on this book. His family, his love for Annabeth, this made him weak. But at the end he chose what is right. And it made him a hero. He was just used by Kronos.

#4: LUKE’S BATTLE. Luke’s own battle with Kronos is creepy. Though because he wanted still to be good and reverse what have had done. But unfortunately he didn’t succeed. But he bravely and wholeheartedly choose right path on his last breath.

#5: RACHEL ELIZABETH DARE. I’ll track you down on Heroes of Olympus, I’ll see to it. Well, I wasn’t expecting also how big her role is. It’s a good thing I watched her carefully on her first encounter with Percy. And what she did to save Percy from the school madness is a job well done.

#6: THE OFFER. Being the hero on saving the world and Olympus as well made Zeus grant Percy’s wish to be immortal, if he say so. But he’s not like other hero who wanted that eternity. He wants to experience those glimpse of his life as shown by the Faith.

#7: THE CLAIMING. And let’s expect a bunch of demigods, coz it’s a must now for the Olympians to claim their sons and daughters… Let’s count starting with Jayson on HoO… Thanks Percy for the chance to meet them one by one. 🙂

#8: BOB AND SALLY. I just hope he will be a real good guy for Percy’s mom. For she deserve a normal love story too, am I right?

#9: THE ENDING, ITSELF. The ending of the book is really an interesting one. I wish I could read Heroes of Olympus right now. But it’s a worth waiting for I know, coz I’ll be reliving with the characters soon. I know it will be roller-coaster-ride again, so I’m prepping myself for it.

All-in-all, I can’t write everything on my mind. It’s simply 5/5 rating for this last book. And I know, you’ve wanted too to read it by yourself, so do it now and experience a mind-blowing actions and quests and love and loyalty and commitment… Thanks Mr. CampHalfBlood for the wonderful journey. Thanks Percy for a forever-remembered quests and happenings. It’s a goodbye for now… 🙂

THE BATTLE OF THE LABYRINTH (Book Review)

Book Title: The Battle of the Labyrinth (Book#4) | Series Title: Percy Jackson and the Olympians | Author: Rick Riordan| EDITION: Disney Hyperion, Paperback | Status: Owned | Reading Time: April 18 – May 13, 2015

Its just a dismay i was lazy reading this beautiful book… But i still made it with amazement. And just I thought, Percy’s world on fourth book is amazing as ever. The quest is exciting and worth living-by-reading. The adventure is really great… and I can’t say exact words describing it.

#1: THE QUEST. The quest itself is reassuring that the whole book will be a blast. And I was right!

#2: THAT RANCH. That horrible ranch… and Percy’s cleaning task is a mess. But he made it in a witty way. He’s Poseidon’s son afterall… great!

#3: ENEMIES AND ALLIED. Those we were expecting to be the enemy, all of sudden were allied. And those who were supposed to be allied were enemies. Well, always happens.

#4: DAEDALUS. You are the center of attraction man… and what you’ve done in this book is amazing yet a lil disappointing. But you’re great. You are the maker of the Labyrinth after all…

#5: CALYPSO. Percy’s biggest ‘what-if’. Well he’s been through a lot. And maybe he cant be an immortal after all… (trying not to spoil)

#6: PERCY’S DEATH. Yeah… they actually burn a shroud for Percy. :p

#7: ANTAEUS. That Cyclops. I know Tyson will beat him to death if they meet. Thanks Percy is a witty man.

#8: BETRAYAL. Im just sad with Nico. He’d been trusting wrong person… do I need to say ghost?

#9: THE WAR. The war between Luke’s / Kronos army against the Camp Half-Blood is action packed, though killings cant be avoided. It’s a great scene though.

And that’s it…. It’s a very late review coz I’ve already finished The Last Olympian as of now and currently reading Red Queen… That’s why im more focused on writing review for the last book of the series. 4.5/5 stars for this great second-to-the-last-book-of-the-series! 🙂

THE TITAN’S CURSE (BOOK REVIEW)

Book Title: The Titan’s Curse (Book#3) | Series Title: Percy Jackson and the Olympians | Author: Rick Riordan| EDITION: Disney Hyperion, Paperback | Status: Owned | Reading Time: April 04 – April 18, 2015

It’s a rated 5/5 stars! A former student and a friend named Rhine Pau, told me this is his favorite of the series. And I am thinking, as of now, that this too is my favorite! 🙂

Okay, so this book is really action-packed and mysterious and intriguing. Each chapter is really a chapter worth reading. Though I spent longer than usual reading this, I will make a way that next time I’ll reading this again, I will do it in shorter period of time. Yeah, I’ll definitely re-read this because I want to experience all over again the intensity and awesomeness of each pages.

Here are the most loved by me:

#1: First chapter. First chapter itself made this a page-turner. Action will hit you on the first pages, thus made you hold the book until forgetting the time…

#2: Bianca and Nico di Angelo. New half-bloods whose God/Goddess parents is unknown, its on the last chapter, the revelations seems bad. But it will be fine I guess.

#3: Artemis. Artemis quest is a sad story. But it’s a good thing Percy and the team was able to make everything fine. I was expecting to meet other God/Goddesses, but I wasn’t hoping it would be her, but thanks anyway, I was able to know her better.

#4: The Hunters. Its Artemis team, so in which way, you’d learn the oath of becoming one of the Hunters/

#5: Zoe Nightshade. Her story is amazing, just disregard her family. Her love-story is somewhat sad. It’s just good she became friends with Percy. She got her own constellation, The Huntress, will I be seeing that in reality? Hahahaha. I really liked her though the making of her constellation is a sad part of the book.

#6: Thalia. She was considered as a threat for Percy on The Sea of Monsters. And she was. It’s a good thing she remained good-hearted. And she won’t turn 16 for forever. So the prophecy is still with Percy.

#7: Grover and Bessie. They understand each other and that amazes me. Grab the book and browse for their adventure together, and smile all throughout.

#8: Atlas. That agony. He deserved it after all. And passing that burden to three characters, Annabeth, Artemis and Percy, that’s foul. It’s just good Artemis and Percy’s plan worked it went back to him.

#9: Luke. Why can’t he just die? Come on, he’d been hurting Annabeth ever since, and now Thalia. What else he’ll do to make things worse?

#10. Frederick Chase. Annabeth’s dad did a good job, really. I just hope they’ll make the same thing on movie. Yeah, I just hope they won’t remove that scene on the movie. 🙂

#11: Mr. D.’s Love-story. Yeah, a married God. A lil bit of his story is revealed.

#12: Riptide Story. Riptide origin was revealed and its connection to Hercules. One sad love-story is revealed again. But Percy made things fine, again…

#13: Rachel Elizabeth Dare. Young girl, who are you, really? Thanks then, you were able to saved Percy. And since im on the fourth book now, I’ll be watching you, closely. 🙂

#14: The Quest. The quest is amazing, where Percy isn’t counted technically, but what do we expect from him? He always do what he thinks is right, and so it was one of his adventure again. But he stayed longer with new characters than with Annabeth. So it was all-way different from previous quests.

So, you better grab the book and read it now. Coz I know you won’t stop reading pages to pages and can’t wait to read the next book, and the whole series. Really, if I can rate this higher than 5, I will. Clap clap clap Mr. Riordan. Very very amazing middle book of the series! 🙂 🙂 🙂

The Sea of Monsters (Book Review)

Book Title: The Sea of Monsters (Book#2) | Series Title: Percy Jackson and the Olympians | Author: Rick Riordan| EDITION: Disney Hyperion, Paperback | Status: Owned | Reading Time: March 30 – April 4, 2015

Sorry, I’ve been home for the past four days, so it’s a late post. 🙂 Well, after frustrating days on Roth’s world, I’ve finally recovered because of Mr. CampHalfBlood. I can’t stop myself comparing the movies on the books I’ve read, and yeah book is much better, again this time. Let me discuss what I wanted to share about this book.

#1: THE FIRST TWO CHAPTERS. Well, I enjoyed the first two chapters much. And so I even forgot it was adapted to movie last year. It’s so much different from the movie. And so you’d better read. Don’t be contented on the movie, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy much on this. Continue reading
