  • Mukhang konti pa lang yata nakakabasa ng Percy Jackson. hehe. I got to read all 5 books and it was good. My favorites are The Lightning Thief and The Last Olympian. :)

    The first book kasi is really good. Tsaka fast paced kasi yung story... The Last Olympian naman, astig kasi action-packed talaga. :D

    I've read it.
    Ok lang siya. pero hanggang book four lang sakin.
  • mahal kasi yung book 5 since hardbound pa. buti na lang my friend has a copy kaya nabasa ko. astifyung book 5. :)
  • I read books 1,3,4 in softbound...2,5 in ebook format.
    I would recommend them for high school and college students. I imagine I would have been blown away if I had read this when I was in high school... at my age, i'm down to intellectual appreciation... I guess i am indeed getting jaded.

    The prose was smooth and easy reading. The characters were interesting. (although I didn't like how some familiar gods and goddesses were portrayed) The references makes you want to review GREEK mythology...

    The books were way better than the movie...

    Same here. Maybe I would have appreciated it more if it was published earlier and I was younger. It's easy to read. Not too complicated and it's witty. Though the resemblance to Harry Potter can't be denied. :)

    I guess the movie is okay if you haven't read the books first. Since I finished all books before watching the movie, I was deeply disappointed.
  • i read the first 4 books, still waiting for the paperback issue of the last olympian.i got interested to read this series kasi fascinated ako eversince sa greek mythology.
  • same here. and i love how the author was able to incorporate the ancient gods in the 20th century.

    The Lightning Thief pa lang ang nabasa ko :lol: Gusto kong tapusin lahat :bounce:
  • naku, King_David--may pitong books nang naghihintay sa 'yo :D

    ^ diba 5 books lang ang buong series? :hmm:


    Saka diba about Sadie and Carter yung ibang Rick Riordan books :bookworm:
  • King_David, the first series is just five books--pero nagsimula na 'yung second series ng Percy Jackson novels, he's already released three books so far, and lalabas this coming October 'yung fourth book. :)

    Sadie and Carter Kane are the protagonists of the Kane Chronicles, a trilogy that focuses on Egyptian Mythology naman. and by next year, he's starting another series based on Norse Mythology naman :)

    ^ah okay... so ang dami ko palang babasahin :D

    Nabasa ko na nga rin yung Book 1 ng Kane Chronicles pero di ko pa nababasa yung sequel :hiya:
  • this is a nice series... and the heroes of olympus as well...

    modernized mthylogy...

    i have yet to read them again..

    (and dami ko nang for re-reading..tsk)
  • King_DavidKing_David PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Nabasa ko na yung The Sea of Monsters :bounce:

    One day ko lang sya binasa :D
  • King_David, mas okay 'yung Olympus series kesa sa Kane Chronicles. ... well, para sa akin. :D though, hindi ganoon kaganda ang Mark of Athena. ewan ko kung ako lang, pero para nag-iba ng pagsulat si Rick Riordan.

    but yeah, lahat ng books dito madaling basahin. :D isang upuan nga lang 'yung iba :)

    dyenapot, bakit naman re-reading? marami pang books out there na naghihintay ma-discover :D
  • IMHO the best book in the series is The last Olympian.
    citing my reasons
    :Well since the battle of the labyrinth kind of left me in hanging on a cliff i expected the last olympian to be more than its worth but it exceeded my highest expectations this book just blew me away :blow: as soon as i got the book i ripped of the plastic case and started reading and i finished it immediately and was satisfied with the results the ending was just right unlike other books ;) and there were also many surprising moments like when Luke offered to help Percy kill himself/Kronos that really surprised me since i thought of Luke as someone who is avaricious.
