Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sea of Monsters Awesome book. It was an amazing sequel to the Lightning Theif. If you liked it, read the rest of the series, then the Heroes of Olympus and finally the Kane Chronicles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Absolutely Great" This is a really great story by Rick Riordan. The novel is a thrilling story that actually made me read into the night. I finished it in a week, but I HAD to pick up book 3 because I just couldn't get enough of the books. Listen, believe it or not, but this is actually way better then Harry Potter. Rick Riordan and his chilling novel about mythology made everything absolutely great. TheBookReviewer

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2nd book in series - much better Camp Half-Bloods are in danger, but there are things around him (monsters and secrets) that have to present themselves. Mission Impossible: get the Gold Fleece, but Percy and his friends will encounter some crazy challenges and old friends (or fren-emies). Though made for a good light afternoon read with adventure and Greek mythology lesson. Enjoyed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty good! This book wasnt the best in the series but still it was pretty good to my standards. Although the quest wasnt the most adventurous, it still was exciting. It was unpredictable so it just made you read more. It ended in a HUGE cliffhanger, and so you are left DYING to read the next book!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great if you're 8... So given what this book is I would say it's probably a great read if you're a grade five student. If however you're almost 30 and looking for a series of books to replace that gaping hole left in your heart where Harry Potter used to be, than prepare to be disappointed. There's not much depth in character development, and the writing has a childish feel to it, I just don't really feel that it's the kind of book that both children and adults can pick up and be enthralled by (ie. not like HP or Chronicles of Narnia) I found the book entertaining but definitely not a page turner. I wouldn't recommend it (unless you're 8 and then go nuts) and I wouldn't re-read it, and I won't buy the 3rd book in the series. The book basically feels like it's only written for the author to cash in, not because he cares about putting out good work. And one thing that really turned me off, Rick Riordan thought it would be funny to start referring to some cannibalistic monsters in the book as Canadians, not cool. So yeah Rick Riordan and his cash grab books will be staying off of my shelves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better... Another cute, fast pace adventure that was even better than the first book. This book jumped right into the adventure since the background was already established and Riordan didn’t feel the need to recap everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots Of Adventure This is the first book I've read in this series and I'm sure that I will read the rest. Rick Riordan did an amazing adventure story that I really enjoyed reading. Not much for fantasy books but this one really had me hooked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Charming Twist i was introduced to this book simply by the preview of the movie Percy Jackson and the Olympians: the lightning thief. having read the first book i had to read the second book! i didn't know what to expect from this novel but was pleasantly surprised by the story. it was a constant twist and kept the reader engaged. Rick Riordan has described the characters emotions so well that you feel empathetic for him as he struggles throughout the book. yet he didn't take away from the story. i found it was highly enjoyable and very appropriate for a younger audience, there where certain parts that i felt the author was trying to connect to his older audience without making it inappropriate. Overall i would suggest this book to anyone who loves Greek mythology, seeing that it is centered around Greek gods. even though i found some of the information incorrect i still enjoyed the history that was put into this novel/ series. it truly is a one of a kind story and very easy to read, without being short of detail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing prequel to the first book! *bit of a spoil alert* Percy is back in this next novel, and boy did it not dissapoint. Again, Riodan takes you an an amazing journay that is fast paced and exciting that grabs you from the first 5 pages, and just never lets you go. This time, however, Percy is finally almost finishing his school he has been attending for almsot a year, but just as everything seems to be going right, things take a turn for the worst. Percy ends up on a journey towards the Sea of Monsters on a journey you won't forget! it won't disappoint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Herculean Tale! In the second book of the Percy Jackson series we're treated to a few new faces, some hideous, but all are fantastic! Grover is off in his search of Pan, God of the Wild, Percy is managing to attend another new school having managed to spare himself and his friends from the wrath of the Gods in the first book. He's taking his new lease on life in stride, keeping his eyes out for the monsters with his trusty Riptide at his side. Things seem to be going well, Percy think he might actually last the whole school year without being expelled, and he even has a new school chum, a tall, scraggly homeless kid by the name of Tyson. Tyson's not so very bright but he's got a heart of gold and the innocence of a toddler. Not to mention he thinks the world of Percy! Now if being attacked by his old Math teacher who turned out to be a Fury from the Underworld wasn't bad enough, things take another twist when Percy's in gym class for a friendly game of dodgeball and the opposing side turns out to be a gang carnivorous monsters! If that wasn't bad enough, Percy's getting strange dreams where Grover's in trouble! Trapped on an island in the middle of Bermuda Triangle. If Percy doesn't save him quickly Grover's out to lunch and he'll be the main course! If it's not one thing, it's another for Percy Jackson. He can't seem to catch a break and the Gods don't seem like their going to throw him any bones in the near future. It's another mythical adventure for our young friend, high flying and action packed, you won't want to miss this crazy ride of uber fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an amazing book! This is an excellent 2nd installment to the 5 book series. I loved it more than the 1st. Riordan does an amazing job of propelling you through the story with mystery, supsense and fantastic humour. It's a wonderfully engaging book and I recommend it to all ages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Book of The Century Reviewed by Grade 5 student Ben M. This book is extremely suited for all ages. It includes many Greek myths. It caught my attention just by the style of the text. I've read many of Rick Riordan's other novels and this is one of the best. Many books include humour or battles or mysteries: this book has all of that and more. While I was reading it I recognized many Greek myths. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a good read.
