The Titan's Curse
The Titan's Curse - Rick Riordan

Wow, I forgot basically everything that happens in this series, but the rereading was great because it was almost like reading it for the first time.

 

I enjoyed this one so much. It's probably my favorite this time around. I love the Hunters, and the story really starts ramping up. I love all these characters so much parts made me cry.

 

Also, Mr D is definitely Paul Giamatti’s character from Sideways, yes? I mean, he's excited about Pinot Noir making a comeback and going to stuff someone in a bottle of Merlot…

And thank you Rick Riordan for saying that freeze dried astronaut food is gross. Everyone I know says they loved the stuff as a kid, but it’s actually disgusting.

Onto my favorite from last time!

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.

I liked reading about Artemis and her Huntresses. That was interesting. Nico and Bianca's history was interesting as well.

Aside from that, my response is the same as with the others: enjoyable, but not something i'm likely to re-read.

This was was just ok for me. It might have been that I just wasn't feelin' it for a Percy Jackson adventure right now. I didn't really feel connected to the story. I'm not saying that nothing happened or that the writing style drastically changed. A lot, actually, happened. And I still enjoy Percy as a character.

 

I think I just wasn't dedicated to this one from the start. My attention faded in and out. I will keep going with the series, but I liked the Sea Monsters better. We'll .... sea....

The Titan's Curse - Rick Riordan

Ooh, shit got real in this one! So far, I think this is the best book in the Percy Jackson series that I have read.

 

As always, I will discuss characters first. Percy is likable as always. I'm disappointed there wasn't more of Annabeth. Thalia and Zoe and Bianca were all really excellent characters that I really liked. And Grover is so adorable! Also, we get our first introduction to a few gods, one of whom is Apollo. I read The Hidden Oracle before reading this was, so I already had met Riordan's version of Apollo. And, despite his flaws I love him. I was so happy to see him again! Bottom line? I love the characters of this series.

 

Also, I really liked the ending. It showed that things were getting serious, a few new mysteries popped up, and that last sentence was kind of perfect. At least in my mind.

 

Tl;dr version- I can't even talk calmly about this book, I just had so much fun and enjoyed it so much. Now onto the next one!
