The Sea of Monsters

The Second book in Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians series

Description: After a summer spent trying to prevent a catastrophic war among the Greek gods, Percy Jackson finds his seventh-grade school year unnervingly quiet. His biggest problem is dealing with his new friend, Tyson—a six-foot-three, mentally challenged homeless kid who follows Percy everywhere, making it hard for Percy to have any “normal” friends. But things don’t stay quiet for long…

Okay, this is going to sound dumb, but It feels like a very young book.. I know it is a kids book, and I get that. but it just seems to fantastical to actually work or make any sense, which I wasn’t a huge fan of, the story seems to consist of complete dumb luck, sheer oddness of things/islands/people popping up at the right place at the right time constantly. So much so that the whole story basically revolves around depending on some unknown thing to always pop up and save them. Now don’t get me wrong, I did enjoy the book! I just wish that the plot had things that made more sense and tied together more smoothly. Like at the end the whole nonsense of sending the girl with the fur across the country on the plane but then they conveniently arrive across the country only minutes after her.. that type of stuff was odd. I’m interested in seeing how the new/old character addition to the book is gonna be so I’m gonna keep reading because I feel like some drama may start soon, so hopefully the stories start making a bit more sense.

I rate this book
