It’s Saturday! You know what that means! Book review time! And this week it is another Percy Jackson Book. Today it is the turn of The Titans Curse.
I loved this book. The more Rick Riordan that I read, the more I love his style of writing. ‘Titans curse’ held all of his usual flair, and I loved it. Although, I will admit, I don’t think that this is the best book in the series. I loved it and enjoyed it, but it wasn’t quite as good as the previous two. It was a little predictable at times. For instances, I figured out who Bianca and Nico where pretty much instantly. But regardless of this, I still enjoyed it.
Percy has retained his positions as one of my favourite fictional characters. He is just such a snarky little shit, I love him. He is everything you could ever want in a lead character. He is brave, strong, funny, caring. Generally just this amazingly well rounded three dimensional characters. I am also loving his developing relationship with Annabeth. I just think that they complement each other perfectly.
I also loved the new characters we were introduced to. Particularly Zoë, Thalia and Nico. Riordan has this amazing ability to make any character seem real. I honestly cried about five times while reading this book. I generally feel that connected to the characters. They feel like old friends. People I have known for years.
With each book I am reminded more and more of the Harry Potter books and I love that. I truly do. I am already itching to start reading ‘Battle of the Labyrinth’. I can see myself starting it right away. I haven’t wanted to marathon a series this badly in years. I am so excited to find out how everything will play out (I already know the general gist of what happens, but I need the details ect lol). I have said it before, but everyone needs to read Percy Jackson books. They are wonder full.
4.5 out of 5
I can’t see you having to wait long for the next PJ review. I want to start it right now. However, anyone that follows my social media will see that I actually finished this book about 3 weeks ago. I have been reading loads recently and I am about 4 books ahead of myself, so, reviews are either going to be a bit slow going up or, I might do a few extra review posts. I will see how it pans out. I will see you all again soon.
