Book Description

13 Jun 2006 Percy Jackson & the Olympians (Book 2)
After a year spent trying to prevent a catastropic 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. Percy soon discovers there is trouble at Camp Half-Blood: The magical borders which protect Half-Blood Hill have been poisoned by a mysterious enemy, and the only safe haven for demigods is on the verge of being overrun by mythological monsters. To save the camp, Percy needs the help of his best friend, Grover, who has been taken prisoner by the Cyclops Polyphemus on an island somewhere in the Sea of Monsters--the dangerous waters Greek heroes have sailed for millenia--only today, the Sea of Monsters goes by a new name...the Bermuda Triangle.

Now Percy and his friends--Grover, Annabeth, and Tyson--must retrieve the Golden Fleece from the Island of the Cyclopes by the end of the summer or Camp Half-Blood will be destroyed. But first, Percy will learn a stunning new secret about his family--one that makes him question whether being claimed as Poseidon's son is an honor or simply a cruel joke.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lightning DOES strike twice 4 July 2006
By Amanda Richards VINE VOICE
Rick Riordan comes through again, and this follow up to The Lightning Thief is just as entertaining, informative and action-packed as the first book. This time Percy (son of Poseidon) is at school in New York when things start to go downhill fast, beginning with some bad dreams about his friend Grover the satyr, followed by an attack by cannibalistic dodge ball players.

When Annabeth (daughter of Athena) arrives on the scene with more bad news, Percy has to embark on another quest, this time unsanctioned, to save Camp Half-Blood, which is vulnerable to attack since its defenses have been breached. He also has to save Grover, who's found himself in an inter-species entanglement in which he doesn't quite see eyes to eye with his suitor.

Accompanying them is Percy's class mate Tyson, a street kid who counts Percy as his only friend, but who is much, much more than he seems. The three travel to the treacherous Sea of Monsters in the face of insurmountable odds to capture the Golden Fleece, which hopefully can counteract the poison and restore the magical protection of the Camp.

Steeped in Greek mythology, yet written for young readers, this one is highly recommended for developing the imagination with its combination of thrilling adventure and legend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great series, laughed a lot 29 April 2010
I got the books just as the movie was coming out. I read the first one in about a day because it was just so good.. In my opinion the books keep getting better and better. The Sea of Monsters is a great read (both for a kid or an adult)and will teach you a thing or two about greek mythology too. The plot twists are inventive, making the book unpredictable and fun to read. I definitely recommend this book for anyone looking for a nice book to read or with an interest in Greek mythology.

5.0 out of 5 stars WARNING - Parents buy with caution :-) 23 Dec 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
This book needs an X rating because if you buy it for your children you will definitely be "eXcluded" whilst they are reading it - I "lost" my daughter for a whole day and a half; worse still, the kindle was my birthday present!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Adventure! 4 April 2010
Percy has almost made it througha whole year of school without being kicked out. Too good to be true? Sure it is. A run in with some monsters soon sees to that and has Percy fleeing to Camp Half-Blood where things aren't exactly as they were last year.

Finding the Golden Fleece appears to be the answer to putting the camp back to how it should be and off course Percy's the one who gets to retrieve it, along with Annabeth, Clarrise and newcomer, Tyson. They also need to rescue Grover while they're at it. All in a days work for a half-blood.

The Percy Jackson books pretty simple in style - Percy has to find something and deal with a whole load of mythical stuff on the way. It's mostly obvious what's going to happen before it does but there's a few twists and turns as well as the explanations of the myths that keep the interest factor. They're funny and full of action which makes them enjoyable to read and Sea of Monsters doesn't disappoint in this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical Mythology, brilliantly done! 6 Jan 2011
Brilliant stuff. Really exciting all the way through. The plot was well thought out, with plenty of suspence, action and ups and downs thoughout to keep you on your toes, With an ancient quest brought back to life. The characters were really lifelike, despite their sometimes supernatural origins. They seem like real, everyday teenage kids, living a life full of magic and danger and treating it like it's pretty normal a lot of the time. Persy jackson really brings ancient mythology into the modern world, with things like the bermuda triangle thrown in, and Ares the god of war being owed a debt by the loosers of all wars. In this book it includes the spirits from more recent battles, and the magically enhanced technology of those wars with it. I like the way the mortal world and that of the gods, monsters and heroes are right on top of each other and interconnected, but also so far apart, and that most of the world dont really notice the magic all around them, despite the enormous explosions, one eyed boys and killer old ladies. Plenty of magic and mythical monsters, and not all the monsters are bad. It kind of has a message that it's not your background that defines who you are, it's who you are and how you live your life. It also has a message about accepting your family, warts and all, but i wont go into that. You can learn a lot of interesting stuff about greek mythology. This world of gods, monsters and demigods is fantasic. The way the book ended was really unexpected, but in a really good way. I can really recommend this book to anybody and I can't wait to read the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 5 Jan 2011
Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters is a fantastic book with twists, turns and downright humor. If you have read the first one and like it, you will love this one. One of the reasons why it is good is because it explains a little bit about the other characters and it goes deeper in Greek Mythology. Finally, I would highly recommend this book

By Manny.S
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this a while ago and have the third but barely touched it, Lightning thief was a great start, although i understand why this book may be a stand out for some, what i most adorned about percy jackson was the mythos, which sadly was too distant in the sea of monsters, it didn't have that twist of which creepy greek ghoul would lie around the corner nor did it present anything worth caring about, i felt myself reading to the end wondering why this and that was so important and hoping the whole book wouldn't stretch this seemingly little sub story into a full blown book, it did :(, hopefully the third did get the golden fleece treatment because the series did last.
