“The first book of the Percy Jackson series was pretty fun, so I decided to read the second book: The Sea of Monsters. Followed by the first book, the second book was indeed exciting but perhaps not as exciting so it's a 4-star rated book. The story starts off saying that Percy didn't meet a single monster in the real world. But the story wouldn't be fun if it ended that way, would it?
Anyway, Percy makes a new friend named Tyson in this book. Tyson was a big tall guy, but in the same time, he was weak; he couldn't stand up for himself, so he would often be scared if bullies like Sloan's friends teased or made fun of him. As Percy started playing the game of volleyball against Sloan, the bully, and his friends, Sloan's friends slowly turned into cannibal giants, throwing fireballs at Percy! From that point of time, things got horrible. Chiron got fired because Mr. D (Dionysus) accused him of poisoning the tree of Thalia. Tantalus was now the leader of Camp Half-Blood. At the same time, Grover was stuck with a Cyclops named Polyphemus, and they were planning to get married. And, worst of all, Clarisse was the leader of a quest assigned by Tantalus. Can things get worse?
In my opinion, I really think that Rick Riordan is a great author. I love how Rick Riordan makes myths somehow relate to people like Percy and Annabeth--he has such great creativity! Perhaps this second book wasn't as fun as other books, but I still think it was enjoyable!”
