When the god Apollo asks for a favour, its never going to be straightforwardPercy Jackson is celebrating Grovers birthday when Apollo turns up Hes due to perform in front of the other gods on Mount Olympus but one of his four beautiful celedon singers is missing Percy sets off to bring her back, but the rogue celedon has sniffed her shot at a solo career and is holding up Broadway With the bright lights of Times Square in the background, its a showdown to remember for Percy can he find a way to capture her and return her to Apollo in time Wie die Vorg nger extrem unterhaltsam, in der Apollo Reihe vor allem auch sehr lustig Die Handlung zieht sich unbemerkt durch, es gibt aber auch immer wieder R ckblicke, um Zusammenh nge klar zu machen Rick Riordan muss diese ganze Mythologie mit seinen so speziellen Figuren wirklich total verinnerlicht haben Wir freuen uns auf Teil 4. I wanted to give the Percy Jackson series another try My previous try goes a few years back, and all I remember is that I was astonished why these books were so hyped at all.When the book arrived, I was astonished of the size of the actual text I think these World Book Day puffin handouts have around 100 pages The story with Percy Jackson in this one consists of 41pages The other pages are either informing about all the other books that the author wrote, some riddle props, some information on the Greek gods, and some preview for another book.As regards the story itself I am disappointed After all we write now 2019 The books starts and sets off with two boys setting out on an adventure, the girlfriend of the one being left behind And, of course, the boys have got to go and catch the woman, who escaped from under Apollo s custody, to be brought back into custody, because, well, a woman with such powers needs to be under male custody to define how she uses her powers, right Male superiority asserted.As I said, we write now 2019 Very disappointed, that a story like this is promoted on World Book Day There are so much better stories for children, teenagers available, that are inclusive and don t repeat these old, old patriarchal story lines. Love Rick Regarding books and have them all A great little book to add to my expanding collection Yes it s a little short but for only 1 it s well worth it in my opinion.
