The Sea of Monsters
The Sea of Monsters - Rick Riordan

This time around I gave The Lightning Thief an extra star and took one away from Sea of Monsters.

 

This is a perfectly serviceable sequel. It's just not as good as some of the other books/as good as I remember.

 

There are some continuity issues between this book and the first one from Mr D’s shirt (tiger print changes to leopard print) to camp food (from mainly healthy Greek fare to anything imaginable) to blue food (honestly, the reasoning behind the blue food changes in every book like Riordan was playing a game of telephone with himself).

 

I wasn't a fan of the "hula women" tattoos or the centaur with "his face painted like a Comanche warrior"... even if the centaur was Comanche, why would he wear war paint to a party? I don't think that makes sense...

 

I do love Tyson, and the adventure in this book is OK but feels too derivative of The Odyssey. Full disclosure: I've never really read The Odyssey, despite being assigned it freshman year of high school, so I'm mostly going off what I remember from sparknotes/pop culture references.

The Sea of Monsters - Rick Riordan

Tl;dr version- lots of action, lots of funny moments, I love the mythology, and a surprising ending. This was very different from the film, but both were good in their own way. Can't wait to read The Titan's Curse!

 

No full review, because I'm lazy. #sorrynotsorry.
