Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-9–In this sequel (Miramax Books, 2006) to Rick Riordan's The Lightning Thief (Hyperion, 2005; Listening Library, 2005) 13-year-old Percy is just finishing up his school year and is looking forward to another great summer at Camp Half-Blood with all the other demigods. But even before school ends, things start happening, and soon Percy is at camp along with Tyson, a homeless kid adopted by Percy's school. At camp, Percy not only discovers that Tyson is a Cyclops and a son of Poseidon, which makes him Percy's half-brother, but also that the camp is in trouble. There's a quest to rescue Percy's friend, Grover the satyr, and to retrieve the Golden Fleece. The plot zips along with plenty of action; lots of mythological monsters, titans, and gods; and a leavening of humor. Jesse Bernstein does a good job of giving Percy a youthful voice in this first-person narrative, while at the same time creating appropriate voices for the other characters. Listeners who have not read or listened to the first book in the projected trilogy will want to do so before the next installment is published.–Sarah Flowers, Santa Clara County Library, CA

From Booklist

Gr. 6-9. In this second adventure in Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, Percy is anticipating the end of seventh grade and a summer at Camp Half-Blood with kids who are the offspring of Greek gods and mortals. He dreams that his pal Grover, a satyr, is in danger. After monsters attack in his school gym class, Percy and Tyson, a homeless kid, are picked up by Annabeth, a half-blood friend, and rushed to the camp, which is under attack. The tree that guards the camp is dying, and Chiron, the activity director, has been dismissed. Another dream reveals that Grover, whose peril is increasing, is on the same island as the legendary Golden Fleece, which may be the cure for the troubled camp. With the help of Hermes, Percy and his pals set off to the Sea of Monsters, where they encounter legendary dangers. Riordan's clever mix of classical mythology, contemporary teen characters, and an action-packed adventure will bring new readers to the series. Diana Herald

I really enjoyed the way Percy used the abilities he didn't know he had. They came to him naturally, as if cementing the fact that he was indeed the son of Poseidon. I was touched by Percy's relationships with his friends, even though his loyalties were often put to the test.

As with the first book, I listened to The Sea of Monsters in audio format. It was narrated once again by Jesse Bernstein. Unfortunately I am not a big fan of his narration of this series. Although I believe his impressions of the different characters voices may be more appealing to a younger audience.

For some reason I wasn't as excited and captivated by this book as I was with the first. I wonder if this was because of my annoyance with the narration and if my opinion would be different if I had read a physical copy.

Still I do plan to carry on with the third book as soon as possible and would recommend it to those who enjoy a fun adventure story.

As said earlier, Mr. Riordan is my son's favourite author. The fact that his favourite hero has a cyclops for a brother is a riot to him. He is also very happy that Jessie Burnstine is the voice of the books so far. He hopes it stays that way.

As I tore through this second book I realized that I was really enjoying this quick series. This book deals with Homer's Odyssey in ways, including the Cyclops and Sirens. It was a smaller book than it's wonderful predecessor but still action packed and delightful to read. I feel like the first book hinted at the grander scheme of the series, while this book is taking it's first real stride towards the overall arc of the series. We meet Hermes in this series, find out more about Percy's godhood family, and deal with trickery. I can't wait to hop into the next one after this book. Percy's abilities progress and so does the series so far!

In the Sea of Monsters,Percy is now thirteen, this means that his scent is now stronger than ever. The monsters can tell were he is more often. In this book, Percy, Annabeth and Tison go on an adventure to rescue Grover, one of Percy's beloved friends. In this quest,they find a few challenges that alter the rescue mission. With twists and turns, Sea of Monsters is by far, my favourite book.

Format: Hardcover
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.

Riordan has found his groove, and Sea of Monsters (#2 in the series) is just as strong as The Lightning Thief.

In book two we have a long, mostly maritime, quest to save Grover (a main character from book one), and to find the legendary Golden Fleece. It's all really well done, and the budding friendship/relationship between Percy and Annabeth is very low key but is kind of intriguing.

The dark lord character, Kronos, is still rebuilding his strength, and the atmosphere of impending doom is quite strong, and makes you want to grab book three to see how the war turns out. I'm not quite sold on Luke, who is Kronos's right hand man. Luke isn't quite evil enough, but that's just a minor criticism.

Anyway, a second good adventure, and the ending is great... more mysteries to make you hungry for book three!
