I must admit I watched the movie a few years ago while it was not the best I know of some of the stuff happening in the first book .

Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth
The Battle of the Labyrinth - Rick Riordan

In lieu of a proper review (which I just haven’t felt like doing lately), I present to you a Percy Jackson Checklist:

 

☑ Monsters show up at school; shenanigans ensue.

☑ A quest is given; Percy’s participation is crucial.

☑ Other characters have to school Percy on Greek mythology because apparently he can’t be arsed learning all this stuff his life might depend on him knowing.

☑ Token mentions of ADHD.

☑ Annabeth is conflicted and angsty.

☑ Luke is conflicted and sad/angry (sangry?).

☑ Kronos is six steps ahead of everyone.

 

I could probably keep going and expand this into a Percy Jackson Bingo Card. But, much like Percy learning Greek mythology, I can’t be arsed.

 

I wasn’t thrilled with the advent of the love triangle (square . . . ish?) in this book, even though it meant Percy finally got a love interest not related to him. I will not be fooled into thinking that Percy will end up with anyone other than Annabeth, his first cousin once removed. Bleh. I’m still enjoying the series overall, but this kissing cousins thing does dampen my enthusiasm a bit. I should’ve kept reading this series as it came out. You know, before I realized pretty much everyone at Camp Half-Blood is related to each other.

Percy Jackson and the Titan's Curse
The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson, #3) - Rick Riordan

After re-reading the first two books in the series, I’m finally getting to the books I missed. New material! Yay! I don’t feel the need to review this one in depth, so I’ll just say a few things:

 

  1. I am still really enjoying this series, its problematic elements notwithstanding. And I think it holds up well, despite being a tiny bit dated.
  2. Re: problematic elements, I have family with ADHD. They’re in no way, shape, or form accurately represented by Riordan’s idea of teenagers with ADHD. I’m continually dismayed (but not surprised) at the gimmick-ifying of medical conditions in mainstream media.
  3. There are Percy + Annabeth shippers in the world and I cannot. I cannot! She’s his first cousin once removed! That’s not even legal! Would YOU want to date your cousin’s kid? (Your answer better be no! Bleh!) And I know Aphrodite is totally shipping them right there on the pages, but she’s cheating on her half-brother husband with her half-brother lover, so HER JUDGMENT IS EXTREMELY SUSPECT.

 

Ahem.

 

*deep cleansing breath*

 

Anywho, on to book four.
